when she was bad!!!!!

what an amazing story! I was hooked from the first chapter, so much so that I had to finish it in one sitting. The characters were totally believable, the plot unfurled like an onion - layer upon layer giving you insights into each character. The narrator's voice was brilliantly mesmerising too. I'm looking forward to the next book from this author.

Confusing

What did you like best about When She Was Bad? What did you like least?

I didn't dislike this book. It kept my interest with its 'who is it' theme but there were moments when I found the narrative extremely dull. It was a good story and a clever idea but far too long. It will transfer well to the screen ( probably as a TV series) and overall as I say it was not too bad.

Weak characters. Stupid story line. suspense....non existent.

About 10 or so characters which are all instantly forgettable. The story was beyond stupid and was trying way too hard to keep us guessing as to which boring character was up to no good.

Stick with it!

Well worth a read. Found some characters a bit dull, but the narration was excellent! Great story, and I didn’t guess the ending!

Not for me - sorry. I'm requesting a refund

Just not for me. It felt like it droned on in.a predictable manner. Disappointing for me.

An anti climax

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I struggled to get into this audio book. This certainly wasn't because of the narrator as she was excellent. The constant jumping between past and present was difficult to keep up with and became a little annoying. When the final big reveal happened at the end, it was a wee bit of an anti-climax.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The 'past' story was intriguing and featured the traumatic tale of child abuse as seen through the eyes of a child psychologist. This part was interesting and quite gripping. The 'present' story was in comparison quite drawn out and a little tiresome as the characters featured were a little stereotypical and predictable.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The account of the 'past' child psychologist as it was interesting and gripping.

puzzling plot

not sure if I missed something but there was no explanation why they felt how they did about the son. some very good accents in the narration.

Sloooowwwwwww

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this book. Any promise it had fizzled out during the middle and completely died somewhere near the end. Poor story with no actual purpose.

Has When She Was Bad put you off other books in this genre?

I think I need a change now because I'm finding almost everything predictable.

Was When She Was Bad worth the listening time?

No.
