started off lame but really picked up and the twists and turns made me love it
This book would have been better with half the words removed. I got irritated listening to the unnecessary words used to tell the story. The f word doesn't need to be used at all.
Turned me off of this genre? No. Turned me off of this author? Yes. I will never bother with a Lisa Jackson again.
Most of them.
The language in this book is better suited to a Junior High student who is trying to impress his friends than the characters in this book. I finally went to the last chapter just to see how things ended, the story line was great but the language was very distracting.
I would have put down a paper version after the first two chapters, but kept listening wondering why is this happening to them.
Yes , all very well done,.
Yes, many twist and turns!
Ava, heartbreaking and courageous!
The ending by the lake.
The scenes about Noah are heartbreaking!
Synonym for gaslight(ing). Reader with better sense of speaking emphasis.
mispronunciation of macabre
No one comes to mind. This reader could be trained.
Decent story line. Needs some work on vocabulary.
I wasted a credit.
NO! The narrator used inaccurate emphasis so many times I had to grit my teeth. There were run-ons, pauses in the middle of phrases, and shifts in pronunciation which completely changed meaning at times.
The story was as good but the reading was far worse. I have listened to several other Lisa Jackson books and enjoyed them, but this was disappointing. As I said, good story though.
I became so leery of hearing mispronounced sentences that at times I lost track of the story.
Noah age 2 has been missing for two years. Ava his mother has never given up hope even after a stay in a mental hospital. Everyone thinks she is a certifiable nut case. As the story unfolds we learn the secrets this family is keeping. Each is more bizarre than the next.
Just when you think you have figured it out, the author throws you a curve. The story becomes so bizarre as to be unbelievable. The ending doesn't make much sense.
Another thing I had a hard time with was the hardcore cussing. The cursing would make a rapper blush. It is not necessary to spice up dialogue with G**D*** & F******C***** and much worse.
I would not recommend the book.
This is a great listen! Just when I thought I had it all figured out....I was wrong.
Say something about yourself!
Yes! I did not want to turn it off!
Yes, it kept me guessing until the end. It was full of suspense!
The main character, Ava
