I enjoyed the characters and there dark pasts/secrets. I really did not like how coincidental everything was. This was more like 2 stories merging into one, which can be good or bad, and for me it was to predictable. What really made me go 'seriously..' was Patty Day learned that Ben may have kept the little girls underwear...right before Ben buys a bag of underwear, used...for his to be daughter. LIKE CMON! After that I was very disappointed, the ax was right where it needed to be...the stories made to much sense. The ending did not make my jaw drop.
Less coincidences, less predictable.
Ya - I wouldn't waste a credit on it though
I did not particularly enjoy this book. The narration was excellent, but the book was pretty gruesome, and I didn't really latch on the caring who killed the family. The whole book I just wanted it to end. I give it three stars for the narration and the authors ability to tie the story together with segments from many different perspectives.
I usually listen to audio books while running or driving to/from work. I couldn't listen to this story while I was running because it was a little slow to start for me. Most books I'm hooked by chapter 2, but this story took me a little longer. Halfway through I couldn't stop listening. It ended up being my workout book and couldn't stop running entire last chapter because I was so intrigued! You end up figuring out what probably happened but they throw a twist or two in there at the end to keep you on your toes until the very end!
Seems slow to start, however picked up in the second third of the story and then got very interesting. The narrator was very good.
