Watching You | [Michael Robotham]

Watching You

Marnie Logan often feels like she's being watched. Nothing she can quite put her finger on - a whisper of breath on the back of her neck, or a shadow in the corner of her eye - and now her life is frozen. Her husband Daniel has been missing for more than a year. Depressed and increasingly desperate, she seeks the help of clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin. Joe is concerned by Marnie's reluctance to talk about the past, but then she discovers a book packed with pictures, interviews with friends, former teachers, old flames and workmates Daniel was preparing for her birthday.

Depressed and increasingly desperate, she seeks the help of clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin. Joe is concerned by Marnie's reluctance to talk about the past, but then she discovers a book packed with pictures, interviews with friends, former teachers, old flames and workmates Daniel was preparing for her birthday.

    "Forgettable."
    Would you try another book written by Michael Robotham or narrated by Sean Barrett?

    Doubtful.this was recommended by a friend, and I wish I'd not listened the whole way through, as it was very slow going.


    What was most disappointing about Michael Robotham’s story?

    It didn't go anywhere.


    Any additional comments?

    The least favourite book I have listened to. Will return.

    Story
    "When Stalking gets Extreme"
    What made the experience of listening to Watching You the most enjoyable?

    "Watching You" by Michael Robotham is a very exciting, wellwritten thriller novel, which succesfully draws on the authors knowledge/research arund both psychoogy and physiology. Especiallly the psychology behind stalking of other people. The twisted and malplaced love of another person. But a kind of love all the same. It also dwells into the murky depths of what makes a person go out of their way to protect total strangers, and even commit serious crimes in order to protect the person being stalked.

    In addition the very rare condition of a true split personality disorder is explored and explained to the reader in a very accurate way.

    The novel's pace is a bit slow for the first part of the book, but then it really takes off. The reader really get several surprises as the plot twists and turns.

    As in other of Robotham's novel follow the professor Joe O'Loughlin, Parkinson's decease patient and clinical psychologist. In a cast filled with more or less unpleasant people including cops, lawyers and doctors, Joe stands out as the true hero of the book.
    Undaunted by his illness he is determined to pursue the demons (real and imaginative) who surrounds the victim of the plot: Marny, a inpoverished young woman, mother driven to work as a part-time prostitute since her husband, Danny, went missing for several years.

    But is Marny really a victim - or is she victimising herself and other?


    What other book might you compare Watching You to, and why?

    "Say you're sorry" by Michael Robotham


    What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Sean Barrett is one of the best allround audio book performer that I know of. Giving voice to both crude police officer, insane killers and little girls with equal trustworthiness. Sean Barrett's performance makes the book even better than it would be if you read it.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Lethal Love!"

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

    This is another great listen, the characters are believable , the story has twists and turns through out.

    I couldn't pin point one moment, I thought I had worked it out only to find another twist it kept me going.

    I just love Joe, he is kind, thoughtful, deep and some what vulnerable in an emotional way.

    Story
    "Amazing twist at the end."
    Would you listen to Watching You again? Why?

    I would listen again as it is well read and the story keeps you wanting to know what comes next.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Watching You?

    The twist at the end when you realise that all the ideas you had about 'who dunnit' are completely wrong.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Barrett – was your favourite?

    Joe.


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

    The kidnap.


    Any additional comments?

    You MUST listen to this book, it is expertly read and the story is given to you like a jigsaw puzzle without the corner pieces (until right at the end). The final resolution is surprising - but I won't give it away - just download it and find out.

    "One of the best in the O'Loughlin / Ruiz series"
    Where does Watching You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of the best murder mysteries I have listened to.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the 7th and most recent O'Loughlin / Ruiz novel and I am impressed that Robotham has sustained the quality. I hope there is another one soon.

    If you could sum up Watching You in three words, what would they be?

    Suspense, addictive, thrilling


    What other book might you compare Watching You to, and why?

    I can't think of any as I don't usually listen to crime thrillers.


    What about Sean Barrett’s performance did you like?

    He was really good at doing all the different voices for the characters. I especially liked Malcolm's as it was chilling!


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

    I don't remember there being any parts that moved me as I don't feel it's that type of story. I did really feel sympathy for the main character Marnie though.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first Robotham book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I couldn't stop listening to it. There were a few twists and lots of suspense! It hard to comment without giving anything away.
    I enjoyed it so much I have downloaded another book by Robotham. Looking forward to listening to it.

    "Terrific story"
    If you could sum up Watching You in three words, what would they be?

    Engrossing, dramatic, believable


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Marnie Logan. Complex but sympathetic.


    What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Drama


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, too long


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, which could have appeared OTT in less deft hands other than Robothams. Terrible actions by various characters are skilfully explained so that you at least understand them, while not condoning. Fabulous narration. Sean Barrett is the best I have ever heard.
