I honestly write these reviews in a spirit of sharing and helpfulness. I have no idea why I always end up sounding so snotty...
To be fair, I only listened to half of the book. I can only bear tension and cruelty if I have two strong romantic leads to care about - and I didn't have that in this book. The (first half at least) plot is certainly strong, but the romance felt completely tacked on and unconvincing. If you're just looking for a thriller, you might enjoy it. I don't know enough about the genre to say how original it was - but I thought the villian was believable and frightening.
To sum up: Fear - yes. Romance - no.
This is the second books of Mrs. Novak's that I don't care to listen to again but that I would read more than once if I could. I have not been able to read printed books for about 2 years now because of an eye disease so I rely on the audio versions. I'm not very picky when it comes to readers but this one ruins the book for me. She makes the book loose it's suspenseful edge and puts no proper inflection into the characters interactions. I wish it could be rerecorded with a different reader.
