People are capable of almost anything. Fast-paced and addictive, The Couple Next Door announces a major new talent in thriller writing. You never know what's happening on the other side of the wall. Your neighbour told you that she didn't want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn't stand her crying. Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you live only next door. You'll have the baby monitor, and you'll take it in turns to go back every half hour.

I honestly can’t believe this book passed through an editing process! I almost gave up after the first few chapters. All dialogue and character actions were ended with “Marco said” or “said Anne” etc. the worst example of this was “‘Ms Fogle, I’m detective Rasback’ Rasback says” really? Of course Rasback said that! Who else would have identified themselves as Rasback? The author obviously has no idea how to write dialogue and whoever edited the book had no idea either! It was incredibly annoying and totally detracted from the story. The story was OK, but there are plenty of better books around. The performance was very forced and at times over enunciated. I would not recommend this book and I think I am going to ask for my money back on this because I wish I had not wasted my money. Couldn’t wait for it to be over!

For me it just dragged on and on about the details of these girls friendships.. way too much detail.. I would listen for a while until I was overcome with boredom then start a different book.. I ended up listening to 7 other books and an entire podcast series just to avoid this book.. I am so glad it's done and I never have to listen to it again!

Lacey Spears made international headlines in January 2015, when she was charged with the "depraved mind" murder of her five-year-old son, Garnett. Prosecutors alleged that the 27-year-old mother had poisoned him with high concentrations of salt through his stomach tube. To the outside world, Lacey had seemed like the perfect mother, regularly posting dramatic updates on her son's harrowing medical problems. But in reality, Lacey was a textbook case of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy.

I was surprised and annoyed by the readers constant mispronunciation of certain words. Other than that it was a good book.

Welcome to Hotel Kerobokan, or Hotel K, the tongue-in-cheek nickname for Kerobokan Jail, Bali's most notorious prison. It is a dark, bizarre and truly frightening underworld of sex, drugs, violence and squalor.

A few really boring chapters towards the end that dragged. Seemed like the stories had dried up so needed some fillers. Multiple long chapters about 4 guys in a cell drinking and taking drugs and not doing much else. The start was good though.
