Publisher's Summary

Stephen King for the avocado toast generation: dark, twisted, hilarious and unmissable.

In 2008, 13-year-old Jon Bronson disappears on his morning walk to school. After even his parents give him up for dead, only his best friend, Chloe, remains certain that he would come back.

Four years later, Jon returns with no memory of anything after the day he disappeared. But something’s different about him. His presence seems to cause spontaneous nosebleeds in those around him. When he hugs his father, the older man passes out. The family dog disappears.

Jon’s only clue to his missing four years is the battered book left behind by the man he believes abducted him. And he and Chloe are determined to figure out what happened to Jon...before his presence does more than cause a couple of bloody noses. They’re sure they can solve the mystery and save Jon.

But this is a Caroline Kepnes novel. You know that the worst is yet to come.

With her trademark flair, precision eye for detail and acerbic wit, Caroline Kepnes will bring the suspense thriller to a whole new level with Providence - a story of loss, horror, redemption and the love that binds us all.

This unabridged audio version is read by MacLeod Andrews, Emily Rankin and Paul Michael.

Loved it!

More please Caroline. Waiting anxiously for the sequel TV series to You. Great story and characters, though some words misread.

Don’t recommend it

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.

Nothing happens in the whole book

Nothing happens. A childhood crush that spans a lifetime based on what? A supernatural element that is never explained and a police officer that doesn't do anything to stop crime. Please don't waste your time on this book. Her other two books 'You' and 'Hidden bodies' are fine, this is trash.

Disappointing story development

The storyline was easy to get into and narated really well but once you get halfway through the book, you may as well stop listening because nothing else happens despite many years passing by. I was left disappointed with there being no conclusion to the story.

A wonderful listen.

After reading Caroline Kepnes two other books "You" and "Hidden bodies", I was very excited to listen to her third. Whilst very different from her other work this was just as captivating. The narration is wonderful and the story is pacy and engaging. Caroline Kepnes has fast become one of my favourite authors and I could listen to any of the three narrators reading the telephone book :D

Literally one of the most pointless books ever

I liked the summary enough to sample the audio. I didn't mind the sample even though it really gave no insight to the actual story, which makes sense after listening to the entire book. It absolutely makes no sense. It's a lot of repetitive ramblings with no real conclusion. The "love story" felt forced and the super natural element was clearly unresearched and unfocused. This book kept me from purchasing "You" and "Hidden Bodies" that's how awful it was. But after seeing the Netflix series "You" I've decided to give "Hidden Bodies" a chance. Hope it's not a waste of a credit.
