Started well, like the idea behind the story but as you get into it not much substance to hold it together and I dislike vaugue endings.

Loved the end.... The book was typical for Michael Robotham, lots of action and intrigue but I do love a good ending.

Most stories have been told in some way before but I have never come across a tale like this one. Be Careful what you ask as the devi is in the details. Likeable characters, fun and sad, but above all engrossing tale and not a predictable ending. A good story well told.

I realise books rarely resemble the movie but this is so far removed it is a completely different story and a terrible one. The other two books are wonderful and full of warmth and family and relationships as you would expect them to be in a family like the Owens. Although the first book written it just doesn't belong with the other two. I think the author has grown as a person and a writer since penning this book and would write it completely differently if she was to re do it today.
Did not enjoy at all, only got to the end because i fell asleep while it was playing.

I loved this story so much that the minute it finished I started it again. I have know listened to it 5 times and the story still moves me. Such reliance along with an amazing mind, her relationship to the marsh is beautiful.

So much more to this story

It started a little strange and had me worried for a while but it soon turned around and begun revealing itself and that's when I knew I was listening to another amazing story by the master storyteller

Dig beneath the surface of each of the people involved and you will find interesting, smart, compassionate, lonely, loyal and just downright loveable characters, A Man called Ove will always be my favourite by this was another great book.

Good story, well narrated. I enjoy stories where I become invested in the characters and want to know more about them, this was the only part that let this story down. I really enjoyed it and the plot was well thought out and revealed in stages that keep you intrigued but I really didn't care about any of the charterers so I never got fully involved with the story and that is what pushed it over the edge into 5 starts for me.

Some parts were 3 stars and some were 4 and others were 7 stars so I rounded it out to a 5 star review.
Great listen and a few excellent home truths and life lessons thrown in. This book has definitely helped me view my past and my lingering regrets differently. Worth a listen

I really don't know what I think. I am always perplexed when I read a book that comes so highly recommended, I keep wondering if I missed something everyone else got. It was okay but nothing that would stay with me. Well written just not very interesting.

I dislike females written as weak people who make bad choices and do not know have to change their lives. Annoying and boring.
