Awesome story

I loved this book, I couldn't figure out what would happen next. I thought it was suspenseful without being a thriller. I've never read anything like it before.

On the edge of my seat

I love this book, it’s so suspenseful and I did not predict the thrilling twists and turns that this story takes. I’ve already recommended it to multiple people and they have all loved it as well. Such an easy read but so interesting as well. I actually can’t wait to read it again! Well done Christian

Great story by the narrator is WAAYYYY to giggly.

I read a review before purchasing the book where the writer described the narrator as "play school story time" and boy were they right. She's good for the most part but she has a giggle in her voice at the most inappropriate times. Story was great though, had you guessing until the end!

Narrator all wrong

I had to give up on the audio and revert to the e-book version on my Kindle. The narrator's story time at play school delivery - replete with girly giggles - was really at odds with the content and became irritating. Aside from that, she was pretty good at accents and the story very compelling.

Great story

I loved the story but not the narrator. She was too chirpy for this story.

Great story.

I really enjoyed listening to The Nowhere Child. The narrator was good and the story was really entertaining. A great twist at the end. I would recommend this book and I am looking forward to Christian White's next novel.

Highly Recommended!!! Loved it!!!

The narrator, Stef Smith, was phenomenal. She did a superb job reading the story and taking the characters on.
The story itself was really good. I couldn't put it down. It was my first Christian White book. Going to check out his other books now. Highly recommend!

Great story

Really enjoyed the story. Took me a while to get used to the narrator. Fantastic twists and turns and unraveling of a life long story. I think I would have chosen a different narrator, but I guess by the end the voice grew on me and became Kim.

Felt this was a wild idea and the blanks filled in

I didn't enjoy the accents and loudness of this reading but that's just me, I did listen to the end and enjoyed the ending.

A modern day classic

I was awe struck by the scope and ambition of this book. The characters are nuanced and masterfully developed. The plot line draws you in and keeps you enthralled until the final page. Normally I read books back to back. But this one I’ll have to sit with a while.
