Publisher's Summary

Since We Fell follows Rachel Childs, a former journalist who, after an on-air mental breakdown, now lives as a virtual shut-in. In all other respects, however, she enjoys an ideal life with an ideal husband. Until a chance encounter on a rainy afternoon causes that ideal life to fray. As does Rachel's marriage. As does Rachel herself. Sucked into a conspiracy thick with deception, violence, and possibly madness, Rachel must find the strength within herself to conquer unimaginable fears and mind-altering truths.

By turns heartbreaking, suspenseful, romantic, and sophisticated, Since We Fell is a novel of profound psychological insight and tension. It is Dennis Lehane at his very best.

    "Compelling but far fetched"

    This was a compulsive listen, and I don't regret spending a credit on it. But so many elements of the story turn out to be dead ends, and ultimately the story is very far fetched.

    "Excellent book!"

    Perfect narrator for this novel. Dennis Lehane never disappoints and this one will keep you interested til the end. A little slow on the start up but so worth it once the action starts!

    Story
    "Wait ...."

    The first half of Dennis Lehane's latest novel, Since We Fell, is a meandering but engaging tale of a young female journalist, her relationships, and her callous, overbearing mother. Unfortunately, the second half of the audiobook disintegrates into an unoriginal romance story (a veiled and failed take-off of the sarcastic but in-love Charlie and Rose in the African Queen) between the journalist and her husband who is not who he seems (and his real self is unimpressive). The two characters are often implausible and always one-dimensional, never allowing the reader to become emotionally invested in in either the couple or the story. The hit men and police are embarrassingly clichéd, quite surprising given Lehane's superior writing talent. The ending was a miserable failure. The narrator, Julia Whelan, does a credible job. Wait until the audiobook goes on sale if you must get this book.

    Story
    "Tried for the slow burn, but absolutely fizzled"

    The first half and last are like two completely different genres. The first was slow paced, but I genuinely was curious to see how what Rachel discovered. The second half just seemed over convoluted just for the sake of another twist. But on closer inspection it there weren't even that many shocking moments. I found myself utterly bored with the character and just grinding out the final chapters hoping for some closure.
    This was my first book by this author, and I'm thoroughly underwhelmed.

    "Awful"

    I hated this book! It was like 4 weak stories jumbled into one that didn't flow. It left me thinking "who cares". A huge disappointment!

    "Tedious wallow in self pity"
    What would have made Since We Fell better?

    This book is plain boring and nothing like Dennis Lehane's previous books


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dennis Lehane again?

    Not sure. If I didn't know better I would swear this book was ghost written as made for TV movie and even then not good enough for a weekend show.

    A musician and songwriter from the Boston area. I like "Regular Guy" books. No chick Lit, no zombies, or vampires please. No politics.

    "Not His Best Work"

    Unlikable protagonists, no one is good, no one is who they pretend to be. Every word anyone says is a lie as they play out ridiculously far fetched scenarios. There are no good guys, no winners, no one to cheer for. Everyone is untrustworthy. No one has a nice day, ever.
    I've think I've read every book Dennis Lehane has released. I like his early work the best. I'm sure that most people will like this book, but for 'cry sake,' how can I root for the good guys when there aren't any? Dennis, give me a character I can care about. Give us a happy ending while you're at it.

    "If you like the unexpected!"

    The back story is a little involved for the part it plays, but what an awesome storyline. Keeps you guessing to the end

    Story
    "Not worth full price."
    Would you try another book from Dennis Lehane and/or Julia Whelan?

    This is not Lehane's best work. Julia Whelan is an excellent narrator.


    Has Since We Fell turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I'm not sure what genre this was.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None of the scenes were my favorite. Some were less annoying than others. I kept waiting for the protag to get over herself. Ha!


    Do you think Since We Fell needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    God, no.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "Decent"

    Decent enough to finish but a bit underwhelmed by the story. I was expecting more in terms of surprise and suspense
