This wonderfully perceptive new audiobook is about the lines we'll cross for love. It's about the murky areas between right and wrong, and the complexities of modern relationships.
The Hypnotist's Love Story is about the mild craziness that lurks behind the facades we present to the world, especially when it comes to love.
Ellen O'Farrell is an expert when it comes to human frailties. She's a hypnotherapist who helps her clients deal with everything from addictions to life-long phobias. So when she falls in love with a man who is being stalked by his ex-girlfriend she's more intrigued than frightened. What makes a supposedly smart, professional woman behave this way? She'd love to meet her!
What she doesn't know is that she already has. Saskia has been masquerading as a client, and their lives are set to collide in ways Ellen could never have predicted.

The character development is exquisite and I came to love all the main characters even the "bad" ones. Such a balanced view on each drew me into each twist and turn and finding myself with divided loyalty.
I loved both leading ladies actually, but it think the hypnotherapist wins out.
Caroline Lee allows one to savour the beautiful, lyrical nature of the writing and fully absorb the characters without rushing to keep up with the action.
The ending was realistic and yet serendipitous, love those endings.
Liane Moriarty is one of my favourite authors. Her characters are believable with understandable moods, motivations, and actions. They are real people who find themselves dealing with an unusual situation. Caroline Lee's narration is pragmatic and well paced so she is a perfect match for the book. The story line is quirky and interesting. It may not be gripping but the story develops at a good pace so it is always easy to listen to. I smiled and laughed as I listened and felt sad but satisfied when it ended.
I am a total audiobook addict! I travel quite a bit for work and listen to them while I drive. Always searching for a good author to follow
The narration was very easy to listen to. Plus it was a great story
I liked the characters in the story, it was really interesting
This is my 3rd book that she has narrated, I've loved all of them
The hypnotist and the stalker
It was a great listen, I didn't want it to end. This is the last of liane moriarty audiobooks available for me to listen to, so I feel a little lost for another book now.
"Credible and very well observed characters."
This book has the ability to enthrall and grip from the very beginning. As a Hypnotherapist I approached it with some misgivings, but enjoyed another book from this author so gave it a go. The story has real credibility and unlike many others it does not gloss over real issues and leave you feeling that it could never happen to real people. The emotional responses are totally believable and very well observed.
I am not crazy about the narrator but she does a good enough job on this, although she does "grate" on me a little.
I felt that the Hypnosis elements were well researched and totally credible. Good story.
Its difficult to explain her shortcomings, as this is a very subjective view, but I do find her voice a tad grating.
No, but I did enjoy the emotional challenges.
