I read a lot of thrillers, and after a while the plot lines all look the same. This book was a refreshing break from that. The plot was new and I had no clue what was coming until I got to the end.
The voice actors did an amazing job with the characters. They were able to get inside their heads and make them believable.
This recording is about 19 hours long, so you definitely can't listen to it in one sitting, but it is gripping enough that you keep coming back to it.
I would highly recommend this book.
The story was great, because i got to learn the plot in the middle of the book instead of the end. some friends had inadvertently given away the real victim when we just started to listen to the book. i guess we were a little late in starting it after everyone else had read it.
i had an extreme reaction annoyance to the reader Julia Whelan. i wanted to say, "clear your throat! it's driving me mad." i hate that gravelly performance. i'll try to avoid her in the future.
This book kept me thinking most of the time. It got me caught up in the emotions...all kinds of emotions. I really appreciate story lines that can effectively change your opinion about a character as the story progresses.
Do people like this really exist? As you think about it , yes they most surely do. Although their actions were not within your comprehension until you read this and sat back and remembered and projected on those uncomfortable unexplainable feelings you have had.
Performance was good but I felt like their mimicking of each other's speech during their explanations would have been better if the real voice had been inserted. But they probably tried that. I am sure Amy thought that through 15 moves past my comprehension.
Although the book was well written and performed wonderfully, I HATE AMY!
I didn't really like any of the characters at all. It was a book that proved and re enforced the worst possible nature of modern humans. I did listen to the entire book and it did have me on the edge of my seat. However, I hated the book.
Both performed their rolls very well. Each reader used their voice very effectively. It was very enjoyable to listen to these to readers. Yes I would listen to them again.
I hated the entire story line.
