I don't read a lot of crime books but this was a free gift for Audible members and I couldn't stop listening. It had me hooked from start to finish.

If I could listen to Sally Rooney's characters, narrated by Aoife McMahon, all day every day, I would.

I listened to the whole thing in one day. Good story, well-written and the narration was excellent.

I don't read a lot of crime fiction but I got this as a free bonus for members from Audible (thanks Audible) and it was great. Good characters, unique perspective and the narration was excellent. I'll definitely check out some of Fiona Barton's other books.

Wow!

I didn't really have any expectations when I started this book but I absolutely loved it. I love Rowan and all the characters. One of very few young adult books I've read where the love story/s don't seem cheesy. It was adventure-packed from start to finish and not predictable for a second. I'm downloading the second book immediately. Narrator was excellent as well.

Epic. Margaret Atwood is a genius.

This book is just so good. Aunt Lydia is one of the most complex characters ever written. Narration by Ann Dowd was everything. And Bryce Dallas Howard and Mae Whitman were excellent as well. Thank you Margaret Atwood for giving us an end to this incredible, prophetic, haunting and beautiful story.

Loved it

This book was a free gift from Audible. I didn't really have any expectations but it was brilliant! I finished it in 2 days.

More than 10 authors on this book and they are almost entirely old rich white cis men. I only listened to about 50% but I found it mostly predictable, unrelatable and disappointing.

I found it a bit slow and dry to begin with and then action packed in the last few chapters. I love the idea but not sure if I will read the next in the series. Worth trying if you enjoy YA sci fi/alternate realities. Narration was excellent.

This is a great book.

Deborah Frances-White has an incredible mind. This book weaves together feminist theory, contemporary analyses and real world goals, all the while maintaining DFW's trademark humour. I listen to the Guilty Feminist podcast every week and this book was 90% new content for me. I absolutely loved it.
