Publisher's Summary

The instant Sunday Times bestselling debut novel

This audiobook contains an exclusive Q&A between Sheila Atim and the author.

ONLINE RUMOURS. REAL LIFE TROUBLE.

Ola Olajide, a high-profile journalist, is marrying the love of her life in one month's time. Young, beautiful, successful – she and her fiancé Michael seem to have it all.

That is, until one morning when they both wake up to the same message:

‘Oh my god, have you seen The List?’

It began as a list of anonymous allegations about abusive men. Now it has been published online. Ola made her name breaking exactly this type of story. She would usually be the first to cover it, calling for the men to be fired. Except today, Michael’s name is on there.

With their future on the line, Ola gives Michael an ultimatum to prove his innocence by their wedding day, but will the truth of what happened change everything for both of them?

Long, boring and self indulgent

It was a hard slog to finish this. The premise was interesting as others have said, but it was overly long, and the characters were so narcissistic and one dimensional that it was hard to care what happened to them. Save your money - there are better books out there

Enjoyable!

I enjoyed listening to this book! The voice actors were great and the plot kept me engaged to see what would happen. A well-written, interesting, contemporary listen!

Premise good, book not so

This was so badly written it barely made sense. Plot holes and unlikeable characters. A great premise very badly executed.

Thought provoking, but kind of flawed

Overall I liked the concept and the storyline, and the author has beautifully balanced the complexities of social media justice, personal relationships, parasocial relationships and anonymous tip offs.

However, I wasn’t invested in the characters as much as I wanted to be. I would have loved to known more about their love story before The List. Some missed opportunities with other character relationships too. The performances of the narrators were brilliant.

Boring

Listened to the end because I had to see where it was going to go. But felt it was a boring listen.
Good story concept, but thought it would have been done better… I

TOOK EVERYTHING IN ME TO FINISH!

This book had such an interesting premise. I was excited to see how it would pan out but after the first few chapters, any curiosity was obliterated. It had fantastic voice actors but the story was incredibly slow.

Food for thought

A cautionary tale about the pitfalls of using social media and it’s devastating consequences. Unfortunately though, the people who read this book are most likely not the ones who might learn something from reading it. Overall, I liked it.
