It was alright. Disappointed at how the obvious twist was. After reading one of her other books which was great, I expected a lot more. Not her best at all.

Awesome

Addictive from the beginning, did not see the twist coming which is awesome because I usually guess and it ruins the book. I can't wait to read more from this author!

It wasn't terrible but...

I guessed all but one twist. The ending was anti climactic. Overall it was ok.

Good story but the narration...

I love Andrew Scott as an actor but he was the wrong choice to narrate the adult Eddie. Switching from a narrator with an English accent to an Irish narrator for the same character made no sense, not to mention the mumbling. It really wasn't even necessary to have two narrators given that the 1986 narrative was being described by an adult Eddie many years later, a single narrator would have been fine would have made more sense. The story itself kept me interested all the way through, I guessed a few of the plot twists in advance but it didn't ruin my enjoyment of the book. There were a few loose ends that I would have liked to have seen resolved more clearly but overall I enjoyed the book a lot and would definitely recommend it. I'm looking forward to reading future books by the author.

Struggled to finish it. The characters were one dimensional and unlikable, and I guessed the killer pretty much immediately. Huge disappointment as it did sound promising.
