Publisher's Summary

Chloe Benson wakes up kidnapped and bound in an underground tomb with no memory of how she got there.

She manages to escape but no one believes her story - not the police, not the doctors, and especially not her husband, Liam.

When she suspects Liam is lying to her, Chloe is forced to retrace her past, following in her own footsteps to find the truth and stay alive.

But who is following Chloe?

Look behind you. You never know who's out there.

    "Keeps your attention"

    Pretty decent story. Not a masterpiece but a good little thriller that keeps you guessing and holds your attention.

    I am a senior citizen living out in the country enjoying nature and my 3 rescued dogs. I like reading good mysteries (even with some comedic undertones); not too complicated self-help books; good recipes (although I never seem to try any). I have quite enjoyed listening to some of the No. 1 Ladies Detective series and David Copperfield (one of the many versions out there). I am looking forward to many more hours of listening enjoyment.

    "Suspenseful"

    Well written by the author and very well narrated. Quite suspenseful. An ending unexpected but satisfying.

    "Just okay"

    Agree with the previous reviews about the whispered voices of the characters. Chloe's narration was the best, but the airy voices got tedious at times and hated Liam's voice. Had the book on my kindle but never got past the first chapter so a free Audible credit was great to use to finally finish the book. It's a decent story, some tense moments, but the amnesia and then almost predictable ending leaves me with the 3 star review.

    Story
    "You are mine darling..."

    Look Behind You by Sibel Hodge, narrated by Susan Dureden was very well done. The story is about Liam and Chloe Benson husband and wife. Chloe is kidnapped, but has lost her memory and can't remember what happened to her. The problem is, no one believes what she has told them. Liam appears to be the kind, loving husband Chloe has always dreamed about, but as time goes by, she realizes her marriages isn't all smiles and happiness.

    I had a little trouble with some of the vocabulary since the book is set in the UK, but it was pretty easy to figure out what was going on from the content.

    All in all I give the story and narrative a 4.5. Enjoyed the book and would recommend it to mystery lovers.

    "Meh."

    Downloaded this book because of the good reviews. When my friend and I finished it, all we could say was, "Finally!" The actual book may not have been that bad, but the narrator of the audio book was so disappointing. She speaks in a monotonous whisper the ENTIRE book, including when the characters are supposed to be angry or yelling. Usually I can get past a poor narration, but I just couldn't with this book. One thing that really bothered my friend was that the main character talks frequently about her best friend, who she never actually talks to or is introduced in the book. It's kind of like the author just didn't feel like adding another character. Overall, it just made me feel very, "Meh."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Look Behind You to be better than the print version?

    Yes, while I always immersion read, I ended up listening to the audible version of this book all the way through. It was the type of book where you had to have the desperation of the character in her voice constantly coming through.


    What other book might you compare Look Behind You to and why?

    At this point I really can't give you a good comparison.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Duerden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I loved her in this one!


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

    When she went to school and was asked to withdraw herself, because of her .....(Plot Spoiler)


    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed this book, will be checking her out for any others that she has written!!!
    I always write a review on Goodreads, because I immersion read. Please look this one up!!!!!

    A little predictable yet still suspenseful, a little cliché yet still interesting, a little too drawn out yet still compelling.

    "Let down by the narrator"

    If I had read some previous reviews before purchasing, I would have been prepared for the dreadful narration of this story. The constant rise towards the end of sentences became so distracting that I almost gave up after the first chapter. However, I persevered and must have become more tollerant although I do think a grittier narrator is required for this story. The plot was ok with several twists and turns but I found parts very repetative and weak. Overall, an ok thriller read by an irritating narrator.

    "Reasonable story but irritating narration"

    Overall I enjoyed this story. However, I had figured it out right from the opening so none of the twists had any effect for me. It's a shame really because I felt the author came on too strong in one area and so the twists never changed my mind. Having said that, I did enjoy the story and it wasn't ruined by knowing the secret.

    Unfortunately, I found the narration monotonous and irritating. She's good with accents and voices in short dialogue, but for any lengthy dialogue or prose her voice repeats the same intonation for each sentence. I almost didn't continue listening at the beginning because it was so irritating and distracting. A real shame.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The reader


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Duerden’s performances?

    no


    Was Look Behind You worth the listening time?

    The story was enough to make me cringe through the narration but only just....


    Any additional comments?

    From the start the rising tone of every sentence drove me crazy ! It was a relief when other characters were introduced just to get a different tone. I almost gave up but the story was interesting enough to make me persist to the end.

    "Gripping psychological tale"
    Would you listen to Look Behind You again? Why?

    Exciting and realistic story. I wouldn't listen again because knowing the outcome would spoil it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Chloe 'acted' her part very well and you were made to feel a great deal of sympathy for her but the listener was never sure whether she was deluded or not until the last chapter.


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

    No


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

    Great sympathy for Chloe - near to tears.


    Any additional comments?

    Hope she has some more great books like this one.

    "Predictable and poor narration"
    Would you try another book written by Sibel Hodge or narrated by Susan Duerden?

    Neither, I'm afraid. I'd be more likely to read one of Hodge's books than listen to Daerden's narration though.


    Would you recommend Look Behind You to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. It just didn't meet the standard of psychological thriller that people expect these days.

    *SPOILER*

    The main issue I have with the actual novel is that there is no twist. It's spelt out all the way through. It's obvious- so obvious that I was waiting for the huge twist and it never came because the 'kidnapper' was suspected right from the beginning.
    The first chapter when Chloe is being held is boring and repeats things over and over. It felt like filler.

    I'm surprised I got this far to be honest, as the narration was atrocious. The narrator has a pleasant voice and it is easy to differentiate between characters. Her accents and pitches are good. But the tone of Chloe's voice is so irritating. I accepted it in the first chapter as she was being held captive: it's the whispering, suspenseful tone of somebody who has been abducted, nervous, rushed and scared. But this continued for the duration of the book, yet with a narrative tone. She sounded like a cross between a newsreader and Mystic Meg! The direct speech parts were truly awful and couldn't be distinguished between the narrative parts.

    So much more could have been done with the abusive husband. He could have been acted in a really clever way but was given a 'general' menacing voice.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Change the narrator.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Not now I've read the book and didn't like it.
