Fabulous book

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Great story which kept me guessing, terrific narrator with a talent for accents and an overall 'don't want to put it down' experience.

This was one of the best..

This was one of the best stories I have listened to, and I have listened to a lot. The narrator was perfect, I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves twist and turns every chapter.

Great characters

I really enjoyed this book and I think it was because of the off beat characters. The variation between the two storyline’s kept me interested and guessing till the end. I liked the ending as it wasn’t too predictable. An easy listen

Refreshingly sound suspense tale

If you are seeking a story of worry, woe, memories and setting wrongs right with a gentle touch of romance then this is for you.

Long long long!!!!

Story was long and quite tedious at times. The narrator was shocking at accents!

Beautiful story, well written

I really enjoyed this book. The story is interesting and unpredictable, and the perfect blend of description and events.

I love Lisa Jewell

Great Great Great, what a story, Antonia's reading of the book brought it to life, I could physically see the people, which I sometime struggle with when listening to a book. Fab connection with narrator and author.

Unusually real characters who I was sorry to say goodbye to

I broke into a 50 hour audible marathon in order to listen to this story. It appeared on the website crediting the narrator Antonia Beamish with outstanding production. This I would agree with. All the characters had distinct voices, and the fast moving scenes had a dramatic clarity and intensity which I have not really heard elsewhere. My favourite character was Lily, whose sense of claustrophobic isolation in a foreign culture was well captured by both author and narrator. I will definitely be returning to this author again.

This was just ok.

It was all a bit far fetched and I didn’t find the characters very believable.
I don’t understand the behaviour of some of the protagonists. Why wouldn’t they go to the police. Why would Alice welcome Frank in to her home with a small child. There are others but would spoil the plot.

Excellent

This is definitely up there with my favourite audio books. I was completely gripped by the story and finished it in record time. So many chapters end in suspense you just want to keep going. Lisa Jewell creates characters that feel so real that by the end of the book you really miss them when the story ends.

Completely Absorbing

As the years have gone on, Lisa Jewell's writing has taken on a whole new form. This novel is really quite different from her previous novels, it reminded me a lot of The Truth about Melody Brown but with a male protagonist instead, I really enjoyed this very original novel!

This book is told from varying times and narratives, all woven together with Lisa Jewell's fabulous linguistic skill. The way this book is structured, it draws you in and makes you definitely utter that phrase 'one more chapter!' I think this was definitely my favourite aspect of this novel. I love a dual or multiple narrative, and because of the mystery aspect of this particular novel, you have to keep reading on to see what clues there are, as to the mystery man, in the next section of the book!

I didn't necessarily warm to the characters in this novel as much as I did to some of the other characters that Lisa has created. Lily's side of the story is definitely very interesting and definitely helps lead us to who the mystery man might be, but we don't learn an awful lot about her as a person, we don't need to, and so I think this is why I didn't warm to her. Alice is the classic mother hen and I really like the fact that she has to push her own boundaries in order to look closer to see not just a man who needs her help but someone she can help discover who he is! The man in question is definitely interesting and I loved finding out more and more about him and the story unravels.

Another things about this book that I definitely did identify with was that one of the main families is from Harrogate and another is from Croydon, that's basically my marriage and so that was fun to read! Overall this was an incredibly engrossing book. I love Lisa Jewell as a writer and she has the power to hook me in and keep me turning pages until that book is done! I definitely recommend this book to Lisa Jewell fans, and if you are new to this author then you are definitely in for a treat!

Wasted my time!

Ridiculous far fetched story. I wouldn’t recommend to anyone. Boring and very twee. No idea how it is described as a best seller
