I really enjoyed listening to this book, but when the plot and ending all came together, it was too much, too quick! It felt like the author was suddenly on a deadline and had to end it quickly. I felt like too many things were left undone. I needed more.
Nothing, the story was terrible.
This book was awful...it was like watching someone's ordinary life... NOTHING happens. I read to pull myself out of the ordinary day to day... Nothing of note happens in the book until the final 2 chapters, and even then you are so bored you really don't care what happens to this main character. I still don't know what ruined the 1st marriage of the main woman, infidelity I guess... there was zero details on that. And then she just seems like a complete idiot. She refuses to tell people about this man she is seeing, living with for god's sake but has no idea why... Then she starts getting "threatened" by a man that if it really was him doing "bad" things to ruin her life so much she has to move to another country could have been avoided with 3 little words, "IM SEEING SOMEONE". Ughhh awful. Don't waste your time or credits.
I don't really know how I feel about this book. The characters were weak and the story was flimsy. And the first half was more reminiscent of Fifty Shades. I was happy when the book ended so I could move on to something better (hopefully).
I am disgusted at myself for wasting time on this stupid story. not only did I have " the mystery " figured out early on, but I couldn't for the life of me understand how this weak, dimwitted woman could expose her daughter to these drunken bunch of weird-os. The guy Michael was obviously a nut case. Olivia continued to make the most ubsurd excuses for his more than bizarre behaivior. I'm sorry to say, but this was a sick, mess. no recommendation here!!!!!!!!
"I hated it"
Olivia is a disappointment selfish and stupid woman. I was not convinced be her relationship or the ending. The book was 90% boring and slow. Even the readers voice was boring. Don't understand why this has such great reviews. A terrible book!
"another brilliant book"
loved this story, it kept me gripped front start to finish, desperately trying get to work out how it ended. brilliantly narrated. 5 stars again from me.
"page turner but a complete fail at the end"
captivating story which is well written but a horrible and utterly flat ending. the main character is a flaky and weak person with severe pychological issues. implausible at times.
