What the Critics Say

"A very credible portrait of obsession to the point of madness... a clever, involving first novel" (Literary Review)

"Fascinating... clever... the author's real skill is her ability to invent memorable original characters. A thrilling read" (Daily Mail)

    "Well paced story"

    Nice psychological thriller narrated with 2 voices - an English woman and a Finnish woman. The Finnish accent didn't feel quite right to me and I spend 4 months a year in Finland and am married to a Finn. But it was a good listen and would read more from this author.

    "Dull"

    I gave up on the last few hours because I was so fed up the style of presentation, it was dull and the wording so pedantic.
    Not up to Audible's usual standard.

    Where does The Lie of You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was good but not one of my favourites. To be fair, it's not the sort of book I would normally read, but I did enjoy it


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both female characters were necessary to the story, Couldn't say I had a 'favourite' Kathy's husband 'Marcus' was annoying and a bit of a wet lettuce. I really don't know what either woman saw in him!!


    What about Gabrielle Glaister and Melkorka Oskarsdottir ’s performance did you like?

    Melkorkas voice was very cold and monotone which well suited the character she was representing. If this was purposefully done then her performance was good. However, if that is the way she would read normally, then I could not listen to another book with her narrating.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not a particular moment no. The book kept you interested because you were anxious to know what Heja was going to do next.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the ending was a bit weak. It was a bit of a let down really. I thought it could have had a much more dramatic ending. It wasn't very imaginitive. Having said that, I would still recommend it to anyone to try.
