Dark, twisted, confusing

I tried to like this book. I ignored the confusing way the story seemed to jump around, changing perspectives, time periods and everything at the beginning. I tried to care for characters that felt two-dimensional at best. Even the odd twists the story took, the surprises I didn't see coming I just didn't enjoy the story.

That all said the narration was top notched, and made listening far more enjoyable than I suspect it would be if I were just reading. You could hear the passion that the narrator was trying to put into the work.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

A Dark Psychological Thriller

This is a disturbing story of Penny’s horrific life and she eventually wants revenge. At times confusing due to the number of characters and switching of time periods but enjoyed the un expected ending and narration. Beware there are sexual situations. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you
