Honestly, I hated the story, the awful characters and the terrible accents of the narrator. I found this book grating and annoying and do not recommend it at all!

A story that will make you think, make you feel all the feels, and stay with you for a long time. Highly recommend.

Super disappointed. You and Hidden Bodies were FANTASTIC. This book is not. This reads like a first draft. The story is disjointed and not at all believable. So disappointed after the author’s other stories.

A must listen

Thank you Busy. Thank you for sharing your story. Your book is amazing. I put on my Mr Nightgown and listened to it all in a single day :)

Loved hearing Kelly’s stories. This book made me giggle out loud to myself, made me feel better about how crazy we all can be, and broke my heart. Definitely recommend.

The story for the most part is gripping but the mind numbing detail the author goes into to spell out every single little thing, just to make sure you understand what happened, why it happened and why it is important is infuriating. Sections of this story ready like a case study in a physchology text book. Made it kind of hard to like. I listened to this all the way through but I wouldn’t recommend it to people.

Unfortunately, not all books translate well to audio book. This is one of them. The story itself is a good one and I don’t want to speak badly of the author but there are lengthy passages of this story that take place in a Reddit forum and listening to “hashtag this, hashtag that, at-user” over and over again gets annoying, fast. Worse still is that one of the characters with PLENTY of dialogue is meant to be a New Zealander and the narrators attempts at the accent are atrocious. It completely takes you out of the story any time he speaks because it’s that bad. If the narrator can’t do the accent, they should have someone co-narrate that character or forget the accent all together. Really ruined this one for me. Read the book instead!

Why oh why did they let the author narrate her own audiobook. The story itself is good, and I recommend reading the book BUT this audiobook was painful to listen to. The author has a very pronounced speech impediment and is utterly incapable of doing accents. Any accent. Her lack of intenation while reading made the most harrowing parts of the story seem unreal because she just slipped into them in her monotone lisp and you weren’t sure they were actually happening. No idea who signed off on this one! Definitely read the book instead
