I'm afraid I'm not a fan. This felt a lot like a novel that should've been a short story -- or a novella at most. The pacing was glacial, and unfortunately the characters weren't nuanced or well-developed enough to bear up to that level of scrutiny. Just not much there there. And you'll see the end coming from around the third chapter on. Not a terrible book but definitely not an inspired one either.
I have heard of this story line before; this of course is a new spin on the old story. I found myself trying to figure out the mystery immediately. I figured it out mostly within the first half of the book, but there were some twists. What grabbed me and kept me listening was hte narrator. What an excellent voice and so well paced. If you are as avid a mystery/thriller reader as I am, you might guess the evolving storyline, but don't be totally sure of yourself. There are surprises. The biggest being the discovery of this incredible narrator!
Getting to the point quicker. I get it, endless repetition when one forgets all memories, but I literally wanted to jump ahead so badly.
Not sure. After this novel, something suspenseful.
Narration was fine.
It was unnecessarily slow and drawn out. There was only one line, written in the characters journal that kept me listening or I would've stopped and never finished it. The story wasn't bad but wasn't great. Worth it if it comes around on Daily Deal or you've exhausted all your other choices.
this is probably the most boring audiobook of which I have ever listened. The reader did a great job telling the story, but this really could have been a 50-page short story vs eight or nine hours of listening to a woman wake up, while about her memory loss, go to sleep, wake up, whine about her memory, well, you get it. Awful...
was also obvious the author had a very difficult time trying to create a surprise ending which was pretty much expected from the first page
I enjoyed this book, although I wouldn't describe it as one of the most suspenseful books I ever read (I found it on a book list of suspenseful reads). In any case, it was well done and held my interest from start to finish. The narrator is excellent. It's definitely worth a listen.
It was a good book but it felt so dragged on. I felt bad for Christine but I could not stand Orlagh Cassidy's voice , it made Christine sound like she was whining rather than distressed or scared . I think, in my opinion , had I read it on my own first or heard another person reading the story I might I have liked it better . It was suspenseful but no thriller .
This story is seriously drawn out. The first half of the story is the same thing over and over. You could read the first two chapters and then skip to the last three and not miss a beat.
Great book, absorbing story , couldn't stop listening to find out what happens. Recommended for anyone wanting a really absorbing book.
