All the Missing Girls: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Megan Miranda

Narrated By: Rebekkah Ross

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: June 2016

Duration: 10 hours 6 minutes

Summary:

Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in The Girl on the Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda's novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women-a decade apart-told in reverse.

It's been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne's case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched.

The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne's boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic's younger neighbor and the group's alibi the night Corinne disappeared.

Then, within days of Nic's return, Annaleise goes missing. Told backwards-Day 15 to Day 1-from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor's disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago. Like nothing you've ever read before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways.

With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you're walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love.

    I really enjoyed this book. Once I realized the concept, it made the book easier to understand. It ended just the way I would have wanted it to.

    This book was great and had lots of little hints here and there (easy to miss if you’re not paying attention) so it kept me intrigued! I did find the timeline a bit confusing, piecing together when each thing happened compared to bigger events. But I couldn’t have guessed the main twist, which definitely encouraged me to read onward! I would recommend this book to a friend! I think Megan Miranda is one to watch - if her early novels are this good, her writing will only keep getting better! I do like this narrator, and I can be picky about that at times. I believe I listened to her for Luckiest Girl Alive, too. Great inflection (and her voice changes help to know who is speaking and when!)

    Good book....The story kept me intrigued and guessing who done it all they way to the end.... I did not see the twist coming at all...I enjoyed the book overall but for me the problem was that the story had so much build up and the ending felt rushed and flat... You have pay close attention to the end because if you don’t you miss who did it.

    I loved this book, it was suspenseful and kept me wanting more until ... the very end and you find out what really happened. I was a little disappointed as I could see it coming!

  • Mary Richardson

    I thought this was pretty fantastic. Very Pretty Little Liars meets some Nicholas Sparks small town. I thought the style went well with the whole idea. Worth it!

  • Jane Korosi

    Enjoyable listen. I debated for some time over getting this book but am glad I did. Although at times confusing with the back and forth of time this did contribute to the story. I was surprised throughout thinking it was going one way only to have it go another. Would like to listen to it again to see all the clues I missed first time around.

  • Tammy Stecker

    Complicated plot with many twists. I backed up way too often in this book due to confusion. Turns out the confusion was deliberate. It's often frustrating because so much won't make sense until the end. But it all comes together-- fairly happily.

  • Beverly Bridges

    First time listening to an Audiobook. Story was a little confusing with the time, and some of the writing seemed cheesy to me, but it was entertaining and an easy listen.

  • Kraig Vondran

    I was initially unsure on the book, not having read any other books by Megan. I am glad I decided to download it! The book keeps you guessing until the very end and Megan does a great job jumping from past to present and vice versa. It also conjured memories of my youth, growing up around the woods and spending a lot of time in them and feeling there could always be something sinister within them, but at the same time being drawn to them. I look forward to Megan's next adult thriller!
