The book was fascinating. It wasn’t captivating in a way that a great novel often is but you can’t help but want to know what’s next. I would recommend to someone who’s looking for something different. I really enjoyed the narrator. I thought she was excellent. Narrators can make or break an audiobook.
I felt that the whole "plot" was carefully and thoughtfully worked out by the author and much of it rang true. The story is about how one (emotionally damaged) member of a family can affect the lives of all of the family. I found the story engrossing and true to life. It is as much about PTSD as it is family relationships. An often difficult story to read/listen to because of the pain that many of the characters carry inside, but is worth it.
The end of the book was a little too optimistic to seem likely, but it did provide answers for all that had gone before. I recommend the book to anyone who wants to be able to get a better look at her/his own life and family relationships.
The narrator was first-rate. I felt that she must be a professional actress because she really took on the voices of the various characters and projected them out to the listener. Excellent.
I liked the book and the narration except the Australian accent. Most Australians don’t speak like that at all.
Wow! What a fantastic read! The characters were developed with depth. The story…oh my goodness…it actually gave me anxiety. I found myself cringing often. What a hot mess of a family—and don’t we all have a story and a mess of our own. I couldn’t stop listening.
Lesbian lovers tale of discovery. And a whole of of other plot tales. Kindof exhausting for me. But the narrator was stellar.
Was free VIP selection. It is not my usual genre either. It drags a bit in the middle, but overall, it's not bad.
The first hour was slow & I wasn't sure if I was going to listen through to the end but it hooked me thereafter. Brilliant book. Intriguing and unpredictable. I ended up being hooked & skipping reading, TV etc to listen to hear what happened next!
The story was fine, I didn't find it riviting like Lisa Jewell's other works, but it was a good look at how a traumatized family deals with it in their own individual way.
LOVED everything about this book
I LOVED this book! So well written and narrated. It was suspenseful and fun and interesting to listen to with a surprising ending. So many instances of family dysfunction and coping that kept me wondering what was next. This author hasn’t disappointed me yet with this and her other books. Highly recommend!
LOVED this book!!
What a great and somewhat tragic story. This book kept me enthralled. Characters were well developed, and the narrator was perfect.
Excellent, well thought out story. I savored every moment. The narration was SUPERB!
I enjoyed the plot as it moved reasonably quickly. Great narrator.
The narrator was outstanding.
The book itself I felt dragged on more than it needed to. By the time you arrive to the big reveal, you’re too exhausted to be “shocked”. I just wanted it to be over and done with. That being said, it had a nice plot.
Took me a while to get into it,but glad I persevered.
Narrator was lively and not at all annoying
The book was good, interesting story of family traumas and how they manifest in every individual. The narrator was absolutely superb, really made the book for me.
Lisa knows how to write a great story!
Excellently written. Wonderful character development. Plot is laid out so well!
This was a really interesting book with a real in-depth look into family, drama, mental illness, relationships. the narrator was brilliant great book.
Loved the narrator really getting into the story. Enjoyed the different perspectives all contributing (not repeating) towards the central story line. A gentle read on a tough topic.
