    Story
    "Great narration, gripping but unbelievable"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Storyline. The plot was distinctly unbelievable and positively silly in parts.


    Has The Perfect Lie put you off other books in this genre?

    No, I have read others by this author which were more realistic and believable.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Narration was great! I really liked the different ages of the narrators, which I think added to the storyline.the accents were, by in large, very good.


    Could you see The Perfect Lie being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    No, I don't think the plot in strong enough for dramatisation.


    Any additional comments?

    The suspense generated in the novel was gripping and it really kept my attention, however I was continually waiting for the missing part of the puzzle which would make everything clear and make sense thus never came, and all the way through I just kept staying ' Really?' And 'as if anyone would believe that!'

    Story
    "Rambling, pointless"
    What would have made The Perfect Lie better?

    There is a good story here somewhere, but this book doesn't tell it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Emily Barr again?

    No


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narration was OK


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    2 chapters devoted to attending a Leonard Cohen concert, a whole chapter devoted to eating a fish salad, drinking a coffee, and visit a old church. Says it all.

    Story
    "cleverly written."
    Where does The Perfect Lie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best ones.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Perfect Lie?

    The realisation of who the girl is.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The narrators brought the characters to life and meant i can "read" more books because i love to listen while I'm doing things.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Running away brings you to the same spot in a longer time.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought this book had more depth than was apparent by the publishers description.
