    Story
    "Boring"

    I agree with the last reviewer, in that this story was pretty boring. The main problem I had was the fact that it really didn't get into much of the mystery until the very end of the book. The rest of the book was just too detailed about everything outside of the actual plot. It wasn't until the very end of the book that the story got back on topic and discussed the plot. Too much detail about off-topic stuff and not enough plot.

    "Boring!"

    I've seen plows that didn't drag as much as this story. I still don't know what the point is.

    I enjoy mysteries, science fiction, Stephen King, and some fantasy novels. Now and again I like a biography and a bit of history. No romance!

    Story
    "Surprises with every turn of the page"
    What made the experience of listening to The Memory Game the most enjoyable?

    I would just think I had things figured out and then suddenly I would get a surprise. Great plotting!


    What other book might you compare The Memory Game to and why?

    The look into the past and the surprises make this one a bit like reading a Kate Morton book.


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

    This is the only one I have listened to but I enjoyed it very much. I would like to hear more from her.

    Story
    "Hard to care by the end-usually love Nicci French"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really time worth spent. The story seemed implausible, as if it was merely a vehicle for the authors to examine the concept of false memory syndrome. The characters weren't likeable, particularly the main character, Jane.


    If you’ve listened to books by Nicci French before, how does this one compare?

    Not good at all. I kept listening to it because I'd always enjoyed Nicci French books in the past so hoped it would get better. It didn't really.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Probably the final scene.


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

    I really would rather watch paint dry than sit through the film of this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad I've listened to other Nicci French books and enjoyed them immensely. If this is your first Nicci French book, don't let it put you off the authors - everything else they've done has been first-rate.
