This book was pretty disappointing, the autophagy part was too much science and the rest was basic stuff you see all over you tube , nothing new and warnings that were pretty lame. The narrator was really bad, often he would stop and repeat the sentence he just read, and often he sounded like he was having trouble reading , just saying one word after the other without the correct inflections. I also really did not like the actors CONSTANT request for a good review , he actually stopped in the middle of the book to ask for a good review - along with before and after each book - seriously do not waist a point or a dollar on this one.

I couldn’t stop daydreaming through this story, it just wasn’t interesting, the attempts at suspense failed and what should have been thrilling just wasn’t . I read Louise Jensen’s “The Date” and that was a much better book. I’ll read one more of her books and hope they are better than this one.

The book seemed like one I’d like but I didn’t like it until around 45 chapters in, then it did get good. The misdirection was good. But if a book takes 45 chapters to get good I can’t recommend it.

A good listen , I couldn’t put down. The twists are good , I saw them coming but not until about half way through and guessing them didn’t take anything away from the book. When it ended I was disappointed because I wanted it to keep going. The narration was spot on as well.

Over 99% of people who try to lose weight don't succeed. They don't get slender and they don't stay slender long term. The average dieter spends a significant amount of money and makes four or five new attempts each year. Four or five new attempts each year with almost no hope of success. Only 1% of people will get down to their goal weight on traditional diets.

The author has a few tidbits in this book that I wouldn’t of thought of - techniques to think about to improve a conversation with people you don’t know well. But then the rest of the book is nothing new it’s all “ listen better” “ don’t think about was going to say next - don’t interrupt “. So maybe the tidbits were worth the read ?

I listen to this entire book although I have to say I wanted to stop quite a few times. I don’t exactly know why but it was just so boring It couldn’t hold my interest. I did like the last few chapters but I don’t know if the last few chapters were good enough to make up for a slow book.
A note about the narration it was spot on really really good - the narration is probably why I kept listening to this book.

I read psych thrillers a lot and as suspense goes this one holds its own. I figured out the story about 1/2 way through but I doubt the author was going for any big surprise endings with this story. It is not high on my list because I found it to be more sad than anything else.

First off the narrator is spot on ! She just was this little girl . I will definitely look for more books read by her !
Secondly This is such a sweet story. I felt like I was hearing a story being told by somebody’s grandmother. colorful and warm. I will say there was one part I skipped over only because I thought it was going to be too cruel, but it was only 30 seconds.
