    "It's like getting only the first 2 chapters of a book"

    I thoroughly enjoyed the performance and the story appeared to be the beginning of a great detective novel and then it's just over. Only a beginning. No middle. No end.

    "A short story with a stellar ending!"

    The characters buildup was very good for a short one hour story line. I would have personally preferred a longer version but all the same this book address teen life at school about bullying.

    "Upsetting"

    This book was just unsettling and seemed basic and undeveloped. I kept waiting for a twist but there was none, it was just a basic story about upsetting events, would not recommend.

    I am a Nana raising a handicapped grandson. Typically I try to read non-fiction, but enjoy a good thriller as well.

    Story
    "*Death by Bullying*"

    Ryan was barely 18 yr. old. He was good looking, popular, and likeable, yet he chose to end his own life. Why? This is the story of the dark undercurrents that run deep in our society, where the domineering seek to control, and destroy others for the feelings of power it weilds. This was a good read, but left me feeling as if the book ended in the middle of a chapter.

    "Quick Listen/Read"

    In disbelief that this book was only an hour and 20 something minutes listen time. Very quick listen/read. The story was pretty captivating and believe it or not the author did a good job at establishing some of the characters, others not so much. I think it could have been a little longer with a little more detail. Overall I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to thriller lovers.

    "Not so gripping or chilling."

    according to the description the story is a gripping chilling Thriller. I did not find it gripping or chilling or a thriller. The performance was fantastic comma the story just did not keep my attention. I have no problems listening to two other books in between the short 11 chapter story.

    "Good short story but slightly pointless?"

    I have to admit I was totally gripped throughout but it fizzled away when it just seemed like listening to a short episode of Midsummer Murder - slightly inconclusive and may have been better as an actual novel.

    "Lacks pace; short and boring"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I didn't enjoy the story at all.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Surprise. It's sudden and feels unfinished.


    What does Rachel Bavidge bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Good narrator with excellent character voices.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Strange little short. Didn't warm to the central police characters who seemed unnatural and contrived. Other characters were undeveloped and no sense of drama or tension. All in all, an unpleasant subject matter (teenage suicide) handled without empathy.

    Good story but a shame about the swearing. A tale about brothers, envy, girls and police work.
