Dry. Unbelievable. Boring.

No, unless you truly don’t have anything else to do with an hour of your life.

No. Stop. Don't bother. I'm trying to save you money and time.

I am a Liane Moriarty fan. I've read all of her books. This is far and away the worst of the lot. I probably won't stop any fans from reading the book, but you can't say I didn't warn you.

NPS starts off well enough, but midway through you'll identify too closely with the frustrated guests of Tranquillum House. You will chant, "Just let it end," but It. Will. Take. Forever. And, after trudging through the last 1/3 of the book (having previously been sucker punched), you limp to the end and leave NPS with an empty pit in your stomach where feeling and satisfaction should be.

Be warned.

I’m torn. I sort of enjoyed the process of reading the book. And overall enjoyed the Audible narrator, but the voice inflections did not change from character to character and the cadence never changed over the decades, which lessened its authenticity in my view.

In the end, the plot never seemed to go anywhere, and the source of Lillian’s inner struggles were never adequately explored.

Perhaps the history is accurate, I don’t know, but as an historical novel it just doesn’t work. The characters are undeveloped and the motivations for their actions are undetected. By the end, I didn’t care about any of them.

I enjoyed the read, but the characters didn't have much dimension. The whole thing felt too neat and tidy for the subject matter.

There just wasn't a lot of meat on the bone. The voices were not cast well. There was passage of time in the play, but there was nothing in the audio performance to demonstrate it.

I have a love/hate relationship with The Outlander series. I like the characters and am often impressed with Gabaldon's ability to weave details and plot points. But, on the flip side, the absurd coincidental connections drive me crazy, and I often find myself fast-forwarding because I just want to get on with it.
