Publisher's Summary

Welcome, neighbor!

Julie Prentice and her family move across the country to the idyllic Mount Adams district of Cincinnati, hoping to evade the stalker who's been terrorizing them ever since the publication of her bestselling novel, The Murder Game. Since Julie doesn't know anyone in her new town, when she meets her neighbor John Dunbar, their instant connection brings measured hope for a new beginning. But she never imagines that a simple, benign conversation with him could set her life spinning so far off course.

We know where you live....

After a series of misunderstandings, Julie and her family become the target of increasingly unsettling harassment. Has Julie's stalker found her, or are her neighbors out to get her, too? As tension in the neighborhood rises, new friends turn into enemies, and the results are deadly.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "A look into the mind of a psychopath"

    At the most basic level Fractured is about disagreements between neighbors. Only one is a psychopath writer and the other a homeowners association president with a determination to control. It is the mildest psychological thriller I have ever listened to. There is little suspense. Narration is excellent. There are too many really excellent novels of this genre to listened to this novel. NOT RECOMMENDED.

    "almost quit- finished, but book wont stick with me"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    the beginning is very confusing, its switches back and forth with no different narration. I was up to Chapter 14 and was still very confused. Who was speaking? Who was where? Not great character development to differentiate. It was ok

    "Pointless paranoia"

    The narration was fine except for the kids' dialogue - "Mumsy!" was awful. The entire story was a big pointless goose chase that was not intriguing in the least. Protagonist was very annoying and not believable. Not for me.

    "Stalked: Is It Me???"
    What made the experience of listening to Fractured the most enjoyable?

    The narrators, they made the book.


    What other book might you compare Fractured to and why?

    I don't know there's so many stalking books out there, they're getting to be all the same in one way or another. Don't get me wrong, this is a serious issue, I've had a friend who was "stalked!" The thing is that very rarely do you come across a book that actually "CAPTURES" this issue, and one that I have read is " THE BOOK OF YOU!! Now there's a book that leaves you thinking....


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Cindy made me laugh, Susan, there was something about her voice I thought I knew, and John's was the logical one.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    When moving, Check out your neighbors!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Change the book cover- tacky 😱

    "Fantastic, loved it."

    A great novel, with much suspense and plenty to keep you listening. The performance is also excellent. Highly recommended.

    "Meh"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Nope, I couldn't get into it, did't care about any of the characters, so in the end I couldn't care less about who got hurt/killed in the accident in the end.


    Has Fractured turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I love mysteries.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I did like the different voices, they helped in distinguishing the different chapters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, I was just surprised by all the positive reviews about this book.... I was just glad I was done with it in the end, and I would really consider myself a very easy person to entertain. I do like to give positive reviews, but I just did not care about any of the characters which is highly unlike me.

    "Good story"

    Good story but kind of confusing. There was too much flashing back and forth in time. Hard to keep up.

    "Deathly boring."

    I just can't bear it any more and am giving up. I have been listening for 1 hour and 43 minutes and NOTHING interesting has happened. I think she spent 15 minutes talking about making a stir fry out of old veggies in the fridge. BORING. The type of book where you only need to read the beginning and the end as all else in between us pointless.
