"Can't finish it.."
I am sure the story is okay and it's written well, but the inconsistent accents for all the characters is driving me insane!!! Random South African / queen's English / Bristolian. Horrific!
I was gripped from the beginning to the end. I found that I was on the edge of my seat in some parts. Sympathetic in others. Wonderfully written and narrated. Highly recommended.
"Unsure if I like this book or not"
I felt really uncomfortable listening to Bone by Bone.
I wanted the main character to do what I consider the right thing, and go to the police at the start of the issues.
Nevertheless I stayed with it and ultimately feel that is a few hours of my life I won't get back.
Saving grace is the excellent narration.
"Far fetched story and very unconvincing."
The vocabulary of the 9 year old was too old for a child. The characters overall did not come across as convincing and were shallow.
Quite ridiculous and silly that things would go that far.
As I said above, the characters and situations were very shallow and black and white. I especially found the father of the bully overdrawn and we never really found out why he behaved like he did.
I struggled to finish this. The main characters were irritating, and I actually hoped they would all die horribly. I had to finish it to see if there was a twist or something. Anything. sadly not.
"Boring boring boring"
Narrator was terrible. Story is dull, characters are frustrating and numerous instances where a little more research by the author would have been useful.
"Long time getting started"
I felt myself become increasingly frustrated at the wimpishness of this mother and how many chapters had to be listened to before any action took place. I gave up on it twice but eventually got through it. Weak storyline, minus a twist and too long. Not recommended.
"So compelling, you won't be able to stay awake.."
Better story and credible characters,
The narrator was very good, she tried her best with very thin material.
Annoyance. The Mother was irritating beyond belief and was just so one dimensional. By time the absurd story reached its conclusion I was rooting for the supposed 'baddie'.
The way the Mother and everyone around her reacted to a minor incident was so over the top it lacked any credibility. There was very little that I would describe as thrilling moments even the grand finale was a damp squib.
"Bone by bone"

Not enamoured found it difficult to concentrate on the story had to keep going back
