Publisher's Summary

New name. New family. Shiny. New. Me.

Annie's mother is a serial killer. The only way Annie can make it stop is to hand her in to the police. But out of sight is not out of mind. The secrets of her past won't let her sleep, even with a new family and name - Milly. A fresh start. Now surely she can be whomever she wants to be. But Milly's mother is a serial killer. And blood is thicker than water....

She is, after all, her mother's daughter.

Download this book NOW

I am. It sure what the equivalent of a page turner is in the audio book world but this book is that. My poor dog has walked miles in the last few days as I could not bare to stop listening to this fascinating, gripping, emotional tale.
Hannah Murray is the only person I could imagine telling this tale. The only sad thing is that I have just listened to the best book of 2017 & it isn't even the end of Jan.

What a delight - what a surprise

When I started listening to Ali Land's Good me Bad me, I thought I had made a big mistake in buying the book. I found Hannah Murray's soft monotone voice infuriating and off-putting. How wrong I was - 'never judge a book by its cover' - excuse the near pun.

Hannah Murray's reading of this engrossing and must listen too story was perfect.

So, my only complaint is that it is 4.30am and I only wish I had started listening earlier yesterday so that I could at least have had a decent night's sleep. I'm knackered 😴

Listened in one day

Loved this book. Finished it in one day. Narration is monotone but I felt it really gave the book a dark atmosphere.

Haunting. Horrifying. Utterly brilliant.

If you like thrillers, you will be hard-pressed to find better than this. The narrator does a brilliant job, and I wish I could give more than 5 stars for it. Even if you've read the print version, I would recommend listening to this, it adds so much more to it.
Just, please, before you download, understand that the narrator is portraying the character of a deeply disturbed young girl, and that is the reason for the monotone delivery. Reviewers saying they couldn't listen to it and hated it because of the narrator are completely missing the point.

Totally different

Harrowing whilst being entertaining. It's worse when you realise the author was a child psychologist so I'd be willing to bet this is more fact based than we'd care to believe.

Best book ... fantastic narration.

Would you listen to Good Me Bad Me again? Why?

Yes it's the best book I've listened to, I couldn't stop listening. Others have complained about the narrator's voice being too monotone, but i disagree, she changes her voice to suit the characters. The main character having been through great trauma and abuse is bound to affect how she speaks. Love it.

A dark story with twists & turns

What did you like most about Good Me Bad Me?

The suspense & how what had happened before was drip fed - just the right amount to hold your interest all the way through

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No - probably too much to take in .

Absolutely brilliant

What did you like most about Good Me Bad Me?

This was a very clever book. Very different to anything I had listened to before. It was very suspensful and dramatic. I loved it.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved not knowing what Annie/Millie was going to do next. It was quite subtle so it was hard to guess.

Have you listened to any of Hannah Murray’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No I haven't. The monotone voice she does in this book almost put me off but don't let it. It is kind of needed for the story she is telling and would have been weird if Millie's voice had been all chirpy and cheerful.

Any additional comments?

I just loved this book. I could not stop listening and ended up staying up late to finish it. Highly recommended.

Well-crafted & intriguing thriller

Strong story told from an unusual angle. Left us wanting to know more about the characters (possible sequels?)

Persuasive reading performance.

Gripping read, couldn't stop listening

I listened to this in one day, couldn't leave it. Narration was great & the story fast paced. The subject was well handled with no gruesome details to get through but no way could you avoid being filled with horror. Highly recommended.

Dark and intense

Way too dark and intense for me, but had to find out how it ends. It made me feel physically ill in parts.

Was good although a bit too dark for me

Narrative was awesome! The story kept me interested which is rare, very engaging and not too much fillers.. Faced paced and well written although any story of child abuse is very hard to hear and I'd have not started if I'd known.

Enjoyable book

I found this easy to listen to and enjoyed the story. Initially i was hesitant to purchase because other reviewers commented negatively about the narration but for me I found the voice suited the character so it wasn’t an issue
