Publisher's Summary

About to turn 40, there’s no doubt in her mind that suburban wife and mother-of-two Claire Taylor has settled. A wild week in Chicago may have shaken things up a bit, but as she turns the key in her Wisconsin home on the eve of Hallowe’en, she knows that this is where her life is. Except that it’s all gone. The house stripped, her husband Danny, her daughters, all gone: no message, nothing.

By dawn next morning, her supposedly mortgage-free home has been foreclosed against, one of Danny’s childhood friends lies dead in her backyard, and Claire is caught up in a nightmare that began with her husband on Hallowe’en night, 1976. A nightmare that reaches its terrifying climax 35 years later.

    Story
    "Hughes in America."

    Very different from the previous books by Declan Hughes I've read. If you can suspend your disbelief at the coincidences necessary to make the storyline work, this venture into the disrupted lives of a seemingly ordinary American family has a lot going for it. Beautifully read it has more twists and surprises than is decent, well developed characters and an underlying ever present tension line that kept me listening well after my usual bedtime.

    Story
    "Dull Boring"
    What disappointed you about All the Things You Are?

    I didn't like the people. To me, they were whiney and pathetic.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Declan Hughes again?

    Maybe


    Which character – as performed by William Hope – was your favorite?

    I don't remember but, his narration was the best part of the book


    What character would you cut from All the Things You Are?

    The mother. The wimpy father. etc.


    Any additional comments?

    I had to restart a few times. Couldn't get into it but kept trying. Scattered and boring.

    Story
    "Horrible narration."

    The story is intriguing but I don't know if I can finish listening. The narrator is not very skilled at distinguishing voices. His Belfast accent is even worse than Tommy Lee Jones's, difficult as that is to imagine. But the book instead.
