    "Nice holiday listen (except if you're pregnant)"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, but not the ones about to have a baby. It's for fans of books like Gone Girl.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I saw it coming early on and unfortunately think it would have been better to read because the voices gave away the twist before you're meant to know what's going on. I think this is the first time ever a thriller twist hasn't worked in audio.


    What does Clare Corbett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love how her voice rose and fell to indicate tension, confusion, etc.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a great holiday read but if you've read other books in this genre you'll figure out the twist early on. Still, I wanted to see how it played out and that was enjoyable enough.

    Story
    "Rather tedious"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This audiobook started off pretty well and for the first half, despite the now rather tired psychological thriller setting, I was gripped. However it became rather tedious, farcical and unbelievable. At times it was well written but in places it was simple, cliche ridden chick lit. Also, I really did not like any of the characters and found it hard to summon up any interest in their lives.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Samantha Hayes? Why or why not?

    Possibly.


    What about Clare Corbett’s performance did you like?

    Clare Corbett is one of my favourite narrators and on the whole she narrates this well. However, the voice of Claudia really grated on me and the male voices were not quite convincing.


    Do you think Until You're Mine needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes there could definitely be a follow up. I think Samantha Hayes has prepared us for this by introducing the detectives Lorraine and Adam and exploring their personal lives.

    "One of the best EVER"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Until You're Mine to be better than the print version?

    Both would be great.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I could I would have.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book that keeps the reader guessing all the way, changing their minds about the characters and their secrets. It is well written and paced perfectly. Please Audible....can we have some more Samantha Hayes, I know she has written many more but only the one on Audible.

    Story
    "I didnt believe a word of it"

    I purchased this book as highly recommended by a friend and it has had some really good reviews on Amazon.
    I feel the narrator was excellent and really helped move the plot along.
    The plot however I found tedious and somehow not ‘real’ to life from the outset. The way the characters were acting made me feel that the whole thing was fake.
    For more than half the book nothing really happens as it is just building to the conclusion, which really can be guessed from the beginning.
    Telling the story from the perspective of Zoe (the nanny) Claudia (the pregnant woman) and Lorraine (the Police detective) dilutes the overall effect and makes it that no empathy is felt for any of them. Reading about Claudia and her husband James I felt that their lives and behaviours as presented did not ring through. From the offset I feel the plot was easy to see although the author tried to hide it with ‘red herrings’ which really were not at all ‘red’
    James lost his first wife shortly after giving birth to twin boys and within a short time he is living with Claudia and then Claudia is heavily pregnant but not really saying when the baby is due and he is home on leave. The baby is supposedly very precious and long wished for yet even though Claudia is ‘heavily’ pregnant with no clear due date James trots off back to sea where no one can reach him without seeing his much wished for baby. The ‘nanny’ Zoe is presented as a strange character and what you are asked to believe of her as the story plods along does not ring through. It is evident that she is not what she appears to be but when it is revealed who she is it is just another situation of ‘really what is the reason for that plot within the current one’! The two Police officers have their own sub story with their daughter, which again is maybe there to confuse the reader to the main plot. In effect all these plots just add another layer of ‘going down an alley for no good reason’.
    It has been compared to ‘Gone Girl’ and ‘Before I go to sleep’. I read both these books and this one is similar so maybe if you liked the above this may appeal.
    I was glad to come to the end. Lots of reviews commented on the last sentence of the book and yes that was a bit of a 'what' moment but too late Im afraid to make much difference when the will to live has already past!

    Story
    "Liked this very much"
    Would you listen to Until You're Mine again? Why?

    No - I never listen to books again as a rule. I enjoyed the plot and the 'twist' at the end, so now I now how it all ended, I would have no desire to re-listen


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Until You're Mine?

    The final scenes, where the 'twist' was revealed (although there were a few clues building as the booked reached its end). The ending and explanation was somewhat improbable/ unlikely, but enjoyable nonetheless. I don't want to give the plot away, so I won't say any more but it was very enjoyable.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I can't pick out one scene more than any other. It was very well written and well performed. I liked the way the narration switched from one character to the other and the narrator did a good job of projecting the different personalities of the various characters.


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

    Too tricky to put into a tag-line! But if I were to summarise, it is about what happens when the maternal urge drives a woman to take desperate measures...

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Until You're Mine?

    Twist in the tale came out of the blue


    Have you listened to any of Clare Corbett’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    This is the first, but I have now downloaded another narrated by Clare Corbett on the strength of her performance in this book.

    Story
    "Great thriller but not very believable"
    What made the experience of listening to Until You're Mine the most enjoyable?

    Clare Corbett is a brilliant narrator, I really enjoyed the way she read the story and the voices that she used for all the characters really helped me to follow the plot without wondering who was talking all the time.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The sheer power of the women's desire to have babies was very interesting and disturbing, the lengths they would go to. The least interesting aspect of the story was actually James and Claudia's relationship, I didn't find it believable or logical at all. There didn't seem to be any foundation for it.


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

    I always find reading a book myself is the easiest way to understand the story, sometimes audio books are harder to keep track of and follow the characters. However with a good narrator like Clare Corbett I found this book very enjoyable and I didn't struggle at all with the characters or the story. Even though there were a lot of female characters, they all have distinctive voices and I never got anyone mixed up.


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

    I think the relationship between the 2 police officers particularly got to me, Lorraine was very relatable and I thought her husband's affair and the impact it had on her was very powerful.


    Any additional comments?

    This a great thriller if a little over the top especially at the end. Despite this I really enjoyed listening to it and in particular enjoyed listening to Clare Corbett.

    "Creepy!"

    Utterly creepy. This had me listening at every chance I got. I had managed to work out the twist but not the details so it had me hooked to the very end. At the end of the book the epilogue tells the story of the police interview with the guilty party. Utterly creepy. Made my skin crawl.
