Although this book was great for the backstory of the first book and built on information, I find myself getting restless and bored by the 2nd half because nothing big was happening. There wasn't any climax In the 2nd half so the book sort of flatlined. I'll try the next book in hopes it will be more exciting.

TRIGGER WARNING! Audible should have a warning for this book. Thankfully I read the reviews where others had warned and so I was able to decide if it was the type of book I wanted to read. I listened to it in 2 days because I just wanted to know her story and then never have to actively think about it again because it was so horrible what happen to her. I want the author to know she has so much support behind her in people she doesnt even know and I hope she has the courage and strength to prosecute as many of those people she can in the future. The book is well written and the narrator did a great job. Really think before listening to this one. Do you really want this know this horror? It was so frustrating how many times she fell through the cracks at the hospital and every time the police or healthcare workers came to their house! I feel that her story needs to be used as an example for these professionals and policies put in place so staff can take action (like insisting the patient speak to them alone) and have much better procedures in place once they find an issue. She obviously tried to commit suicide muliple times and no one at the hospital did anything!!! She had so many suspicious injuries over the years and no one did anything!! (spoiler alert) And when she escapes the police tell her abuser where she is!! The system is in favour of these abusers and dont protect the victim who cant speak up.

Very interesting!

This was really fun to listen to! Now I watch people interacting with each other or when they're talking to me to see what signs they are telling me BUT I would definitely need to listen to this again to absorb more of the information. I unfortunately didn't really like the narration. Great voice but sounded too robotic to me. It luckily sorry of suits the book but it was annoying. I would recommend this book!

it was okay

I'm not sure how to write this review. Perhaps it's a good story? I don't know though because I STRUGGLED so hard to get into this book, to understand what was going on, to learn who was who but I just couldn't. I finished the whole book in hopes I'd get into it enough to want to get the 2nd book but it just finished and I have almost no idea what happened and why it happened. I dont want to say it's a bad book because perhaps it's a really good book and I missed all the good bits but I have never struggled so much before. The narrator was okay but she got voices for characters wrong sometimes and I found her voice to be a bit boring so my mind to drifted off constantly - I couldn't keep concentration with her voice. Every time I drifted off I would rewind and listen to the part again but even that didn't help. The production team of this audiobook also didnt singnal when thevstory would skip to someone elses perspective or old memory so I got confused with that alot. Anyway, read it if you want and hopefully you have a better experience than I did! I think it could be a good new world to learn about but it wasn't for me.

Looooved it!

I really enjoyed this one. I've finished it so quickly so now I'm sad. I really loved this unique love story. Be warned it is quite dark in some parts and has rape scenes... But overall I loved this story!

I dont like to write negative rewiews but I wish someone had so it would have deterred me from reading this book. I read a review saying that you don't have to like or know cricket to enjoy this book - I disagree. There was so much cricket dribble drabble that it nearly bored me to tears, but I persisted. The book was solely based around people IN sports and I have zero interest in celebrity sports people that this almost bored me to tears as well. And the ending... don't even get me started. However, I love the way the author writes. Their way of describing was great and I did enjoy that. I liked how it made me cringe when he spoke about the shot knee... I persisted because the reviews had been so positive but this book was not for me at all!

A really enjoyable addition to the first book. It kept me engaged. I love how it's all quite believable and not too over the top. The characters are great too

What a journey

I would never have thought to pick a book like this but I enjoyed it SO much! More people should learn to listen to their bodies and feed it the nutrients it needs to thrive. If you're gut is out of whack it can cause so many other issues. This book isnt dry and complicated. Gulia has written it in a fun and entertaining way. You dont have to be a scientist to understand what shes talking about.
