James Swain did a great job with this one and bringing in old characters from the other books. Would have liked more info on the betrayal seemed out of nowhere especially after the big win from book 2. A good listen.

Would you consider the audio edition of Behind Her Eyes to be better than the print version?

I only had the audio version.

What did you like best about this story?

It was messy in a book. Details flowed realistically and it showed how messy marriage can be and then threw in some really out there phenomenon.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Sounded good on 1x and 3x.

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

Yes because it was hinted the end would be "different".

Any additional comments?

A day after reading this I'm still thinking about the ending. I knew the night terrors would come into play but nothing hinted at that ending.

A decade ago, fourteen-year-old Suzanne Lombard, the daughter of Benjamin Lombard - then a senator, now a powerful vice president running for the presidency - disappeared in the most sensational missing-person case in the nation's history. Still unsolved, the mystery remains a national obsession. For legendary hacker and marine Gibson Vaughn, the case is personal - Suzanne Lombard had been like a sister to him.

Anna Benz, an American in her late thirties, lives with her Swiss husband, Bruno - a banker - and their three young children in a postcard-perfect suburb of Zürich. Though she leads a comfortable, well-appointed life, Anna is falling apart inside. Adrift and increasingly unable to connect with the emotionally unavailable Bruno or even with her own thoughts and feelings, Anna tries to rouse herself with new experiences.

Would you try another book from Jill Alexander Essbaum and/or Mozhan Marno?

Yes, just to give the author another try. The Narration was great.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jill Alexander Essbaum again?

Maybe.

What aspect of Mozhan Marno’s performance would you have changed?

Nothing she did a great job.

What character would you cut from Hausfrau?

Anna, what was the purpose. I was hoping to go deeper to gain an understanding of why she made the choices she made and why was it ok to cheat several times?

Any additional comments?

The reviews led me to believe there would be an enlightenment of sort but it was simply about a lady who lacked self control and tried to assuage responsibility by claiming that the "love was gone". Well get a divorce why have so many affairs?
