"A rollercoaster of a novel.... McCreight has once again proven herself to be an insightful writer capable of taking us on a hell of a ride." (Jodi Picoult)
"She creates a world that pulls us in completely and genuinely, with characters that can enrage, amuse and fill us with empathy." (Gillian Flynn)
The book is good and full of twists and turns. I really enjoyed the plot and story but I almost quit listening in the beginning due to the narrator. She does the most awful male voices and her child voice is syrup and sick. I will probably never listen to another book she narrates.
Not necessarily.I first listened to Reconstructing Amelia by this author which I thoroughly enjoyed. Unfortunately this book did not live up to my expectations. Told through the perspective of different characters it became confusing and the storyline jumped around a lot. It wasn't obvious from the narration which character was telling the story.
I think the storyline would be easier to follow in the written form. Perhaps using more than one narrator would have helped to "sign post" the different characters more.This book is classed as a psychological thriller but the plot overall was weak. The storyline although contemporary did not hold my attention enough & I found I wasn't anticipating the ending as in the case with other books of this genre.
No this storyline did not lend itself to a follow up.
only off putting thing was narrator. story was good but jumping backwards and forwards to different characters I got a bit lost
