Publisher's Summary

A chilling psychological thriller about a marriage, a way of life, and how far one woman will go to keep what is rightfully hers....

Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage. Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago, as she, the killer, and he, the victim, rush haplessly toward the main event. He is a committed cheater; she lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds; she likes to settle scores. He decides to play for keeps; she has nothing left to lose. Told in alternating voices, The Silent Wife is about a marriage in the throes of dissolution, a couple headed for catastrophe, concessions that can’t be made, and promises that won’t be kept. Expertly plotted and reminiscent of Gone Girl and These Things Hidden, The Silent Wife ensnares the listener from its opening lines and never lets go.

    "somewhat predictable, but entertaining"

    I liked this book. Only problem is you know where it's going before it starts. Entertaining throughout.

    Story
    "Boring, boring, boring!"
    What was most disappointing about A. S. A. Harrison’s story?

    Where do I begin? The plot is WEAK. The characters are boring and predictable. This is definitely not a thriller and NOTHING like Gone Girl. I regret wasting a credit on downloading this awful book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The male narrator did well. No complaints about him. However, the female narrator was terrible. Half the time she sounded like a dang robot and spoke....in....pauses....She sounded tired and bored herself.

    "Predictably"

    This was predictable towards the end and honestly took forever to develop the plot. Still it was an OK listen

    "A bit anticlimactic"

    I was hoping for a big finish, but the ending was slightly disappointing. The narrators did an excellent job which kept my attention throughout.

    "Does NOT capture the magic of Gone Girl!"
    Would you try another book from A. S. A. Harrison and/or Karen White and Donald Corren ?

    Most likely not

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I chose to listen to this audiobook because I read a recommendation for it online for people who enjoyed Gone Girl. Gone Girl is probably one of my favorite if not my favorite book I've read in years, so I was looking for another good story after finishing it. With the opening of The Silent Wife the story seemed as if it could have a good plot and some twists and turns. The story seems as if it were going slowly with not much happening, but I continued listening, waiting for something exciting to start happening. The story dragged on and on, with only some very predictable, boring things transpiring. The only reason I can imagine one would even begin to compare this story that droned on and on with the excitement and surprises at every turn of Gone Girl would be that the story is written from two perspectives, of a husband and wife. It annoyed me how the story was written in third person, and it kept reading as "he" and "she." There was also a lengthy recounting of therapy sessions between the wife and her therapist, which never seemed to go anywhere until something came up at the very end, but even then I didn't see the importance of any of it to the story. I wasn't fond of the female narrator's voice, her voice didn't seem to go with the character. In addition to this, I didn't feel led to particularly care about either of the characters or what happened to them and only listened to the book in it's entirety because I had purchased it. My hopes that the ending would redeem the story did not come about and even the ending seemed boring and uncreative. In summary, I feel that I wasted my money as well as my time on this uncreative story that lagged on and on. In the end I didn't care what happened to whom or how it happened, I just wanted it over.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Silent Wife?

    I would cut most of the dialogue in the therapeutic sessions.
