A gripping psychological thriller from an international best-selling author.

How much can your life change in just 34 days?

Anna and Ray have been married for 35 years. They are parents and grandparents and appear to be a normal couple. But behind closed doors, something isn't right.

On the day of their wedding anniversary, Anna makes a decision that changes everything and throws her family into turmoil. Anna will discover that she is not the only one who has suffered, and by leaving Ray she sparks a series of events so awful that it might just end in murder....

Great story, lots of audio errors

The story was great. I enjoyed it and didn't see the end coming. But the narration wasn't very good. The speed of speech varied. And there was a lot of audio errors, lots of sentences duplicated.

narrator speaks in monotone

story is about a battered wife. as the story unfolds there are some rather spectacular revelations. plans are made to mitigate the threat and end the pain. old relationships are rekindled but are threatened by the scheming and lies.

Bad narration and bad ending.

The narrator had a nice voice, however she never took a breath! No pauses. It was difficult to follow the conversations between characters as all the words ran together and there was no difference in her voice inflection. I felt like she was speed reading! Also absolutely horrible ending! Like a bad daytime soap opera.

34 Days

Would you listen to 34 Days again? Why?

No, I very rarely listen/read a book twice, however, this was an excellent story!!!

What did you like best about this story?

The way she planned everything out.

Which scene was your favorite?

I don't want to say because of spoilers, but there are a couple that leave you hanging with your mouth open.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Michael opens the door and the police....

Any additional comments?

EXCELLENT BOOK!!!! DAUGHTER-IN-LAW IS A "PSYCHOPATH!"
Probably sounds ridiculous, but should have a better cover. The book is too good, and would draw more people with one!

Rushed ending and sentences with no period.

The reader of this never took a breath. One sentence ran into the next making it difficult to decipher who was speaking. The author did a good job building up to a climax, then rushed the story to finish within a chapter. I feel like it deserved more.

The narrator isn't good

I believe the story is good. But the narrator keeps repeating the sentence because she couldn't quite follow the story line

AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely! It's a fantastic book

What did you like best about this story?

Can't say without spoiling the story

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Too hard to choose

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I sobbed like a baby!

Any additional comments?

Have you ever thought about necessary murder?  You know, the type of murder that HAS to happen, not just for fun or because you are a sociopath but because someone just needs to die? No? Me neither until I read 34 Days!
When Anna leaves her abusive marriage little does she know the effect that decision will have on her whole family. Of course she knew there would be upset from her children, although they are all grown up now, she still tries to protect them from the truth behind her decision.
She needn't have bothered, they all knew the truth about their father and, in actual fact, were pleased for her!
Then events take a murky turn and Anna is forced to choose a path of deceit and a tangled web of lies.
What an absolutely stunning book!
Anita's writing is brilliant, from the first page to the last, this story will have you completely hooked. It's such a cliché but it really is a gripping, twisted tale that will leave you guessing about the outcome till the VERY LAST page!
I loved all the characters (apart from the baddy, but I'm not telling you who that is!), I totally fell in love with Anna, what a woman to survive at the hands of her abusive husband and come out the other side with such dignity.
This book has everything, love, family matters, laughter and tears (yes I sobbed like a baby last night!) it really is wonderful and an absolute MUST READ!!!!
I listened to the audio version and it is really well read by the narrator, she talks a little fast but once you get used to that it really works.

A fantastic story, diabolical narration.

A fantastic story, which was totally ruined because of the many continuity errors in the narration. From the beginning right through to the end this audioboook was peppered with sentences and phrases repeated, sentences running into the next one without a break, unexpected pauses, etc etc.
Doesn’t audible employ proof listeners?

Story Ok Performance disappointing

I enjoyed the start of this book and initially thought the title would be significant. However this did not prove to be the case with the reference to the title getting lost somewhere mid book.I was disappointed in the 2 main characters too they were both very vanilla with little insight into either.
The narration was not good either. Many lines were repeated. The narrator seemed to read from one paragraph to the next without taking a breath or changing pace.
Having said all that I did listen to the end because I wanted to know what happened.

Great story shame about the narration

I ended up having to read the book on my kindle due to the terrible narration! It was driving me crazy!! The narrator was reading that fast with no pauses between sentences and as it was read in such a monotone way, you couldn't tell which character was speaking as it all merged into one! I have listened to many audio books and I've not had any which has made me switch off !!

Disappointing narration

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes, I was quite eager to see if Anna would finally get the freedom and happiness she longed for.

Would you recommend 34 Days to your friends? Why or why not?

Possibly.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator sounded like she was reading out a statement as opposed to a story. It could just as easily have been a shopping list. It was quite rushed and flat.

Was 34 Days worth the listening time?

Yes
