Well written and well portrayed by the narrator(s). Rarely do I lose track of time but I found it difficult to stop listening. I like that her recovery wasn't rushed and wasn't easy, but wish there was a more definitive ending. I presume the author didn't want complete closure.
The story line kept me on the edge of my seat in its entirety.
Catherine. I can relate to what she went through.
Admittedly, at the start of the story it was a bit confusing with the two different timelines that included all of the characters going at the same time. You really had to take note of which year the dialogue took place in. Also, at the end during the trial, it was even more confusing. It was like the narrator was reading from a script word for word saying each characters name just before reading each of their dialogue.

I'll admit - I had to turn this off at one point because I was just too scared to go on. In the end, I persevered because it was a good story. I felt the psyche of an abused woman was well portrayed. Less so for the antagonist, but still there was insight as to why a person would act like that. I also learned something about OCD, which I had never thought could be caused by an event, but it makes sense. There were some poorly edited moments, where you would hear the reader shuffle papers and clear her throat - I guess the editor droned out for a bit and it did put a hiccup in the story line so I gave the performance 3 stars for that, not for the reader, she was fine. All in all an enjoyable listen and worth my credit and time.
This audio was a little confusing at first - going from present to past & back to the present - but I decided to stick to it. I did have to rewind a couple of times (maybe I just wasn't paying attention) but only in the beginning. Once I got into it (or figured out how the author wrote) I was so totally engrossed!!!!! I couldn't wait for the truth to unfold - then I didn't want the book to end! This is a fantasic read!! I will be looking for other books by Elizabeth Haynes
yes, highly entertaining
on the edge of my seat !
Readers who like to hear the F word used as plot, theme and story to excess.
Definitely not, slow and discusses the F word on every 60 second segment.
Narrators are good.
It is misleading, Katherine Bailey has OCD with sex more than door locks. It is a good example of the decline of literature in western civilization.
If you like to hear the F word used repeatedly as literary form this book is for you. Save your money and just write the F word about 1000 times.
I thought this book was extremely tedious. I hung in there, and hung in there (I just returned a book and was feeling too guilty to return another). The story reached a point where I was finally thinking 'Oh good, it's got to be wrapping up', and I looked at my display and there was 4 hours left to go. EEEK. So skipped the next 3 hours to listen to the end. Didn't seem to miss much. Listening to how this woman checks her door 10 times and then is just not sure if maybe she didn't lock it - over, and over and over again was not enjoyable at all. The performance was great. Loved the accents.
I really wanted to like this book, but I just couldn't get through it. Too many aberrant mental processes and behaviors, kind of torturous to read.
Audible enticed me to try this mystery novel, saying if I loved Gone, Girl, I'd enjoy Into the Darkest Corner.
Gone, Girl still remains the most shocking mystery novel I've ever read (and I've read/istened to more than I can count). I've yet to find a mystery that beats it -- yet some come close to being nearly as good, and Into the Darkest Corner is a goodie. Is great, actually -- five-star rating, especially for the performance by narrator Karen Cass.
Cass gives voice to Cathy, the victim, both the confident Cathy that came "before" and the Cathy who, well .... don't want to give any plot spolilers away here. Listeners need to learn Cathy's fate for themselves.
