The best part of this book is the narrator.
The narrator kept me listening to the book until chapter 20, but then I just got tired of listening to this weak story. I did not care for the main characters (the mother or the daughter) and decided I was not going to spend several more hours listening to a story about them.
This is one of my all-time favorite books - and I am an avid reader as well as audio book listener. The storyline continually turned in unexpected directions and provided surprises, although there were admittedly obvious situations which seemingly only set me up for the next unforeseen twist. While I normally have trouble following storylines which bounce around in time or have so many characters, I had no trouble with Morton's delivery because she overlapped the stories just enough to orient me in time and character perspective before carrying forward the main storyline.
The story is the unraveling of a mystery, so well done that I became rather obsessive about seeing how it unfolds next - especially in the last half of the book. I loved the depth and complexity woven into each character - experiencing their inner emotions and gaining insight into their actions. It is only with utmost self control that I am forcing myself to go on to the next book rather than immediately replay this one again.
I will look for more books written by Morton or narrated by Lee.
I commute several hours a week. Audio books entertain me and help me use the drive time wisely - balancing learning and entertainment.
Among the top fiction novels I have ever read.
So multi-layered and surprises around every corner.
Yes - she is outstanding. Can't understand how she can do so many different voices. The voice talent really becomes such an integral part of the story. A bad voice over makes the book more difficult to enjoy and appreciate. She is great!
Exciting, Interesting, Intriguing
Laurel. She is determined to find the truth.
Yes. It keep drawing me back.
It's been a long time since I have been so enchanted by a story. I can't wait to hear more stories by the author.
Love all of her books and this one is perfect and unexpected ! So worth the credit. I wish I could start it again and experience it for the first time again
predictible, slow moving, boring
I tried but I could not finish this book. I just could not stand it anymore. so slow so boring supposed to be suspenseful. it was not. awful.
Kept me on my toes the whole water through. well done, characters and story. yes
First of all, I dearly love the narrator of this book!
Although the book seemed to take a while to pick up steam, the detailed and methodical way it was written all comes together swiftly in a way that really surprised me. A delightful read that I highly recommend!
