I saw the reviews...don't follow the pack. This storyline is alright: young, unfulfilled woman finds a new self in the life of a handicapped patient.

But it was just too trite. This read more like a lifetime movie.

I know for a fact that audiobook narrated by Church made this a better experience. A solid story--along the lines of Girl On a Train.

If it wasn't for the narration of various characters, I'd be a little lost. The narration was on point and I enjoyed the audio version so much more than reading...

Very happy with story and narrator. One never knows how her novel will end. Now on to her next novel.

Instead of a continuous narrative, this is more a vignettes which I enjoyed immensely. Had to slow down so as not to finish too fast.

Story is dark but just what you'd expect from this author. Deeply flawed narrator who has an obsession to kill. Done well. Not gratuitous!

Great narration. Wicked writing. Story lines less than engaging but overall a nice read. I've already downloaded other wither work by St. Aubyn.

I was left wanting more from the marriage conflict. So much left unsaid. But story is well-told though the teen in narrative was slightly less than believe. This makes me want to read more short stories by McEwan.

This is an abridged version?? So, I was disappointed. But I can see why this was a shocker for the time.
