Would you try another book written by Lucie Whitehouse or narrated by Polly Whitehouse?
Prolly was fine at narration, but didn't care for the writing.
Would you recommend Keep You Close to your friends? Why or why not?
No I wouldn't recommend it, I found it quite pedestrian and the characters unengaging.
Which character – as performed by Polly Whitehouse – was your favourite?
Non of them , that was the problem.
Was Keep You Close worth the listening time?
No it wasn't, it's a "who done it" with the usual twists and turns, but despite a few surprises it left me cold, I picked it because of the Oxfordshire setting but wish I hadn't.
Any additional comments?
If you enjoy good writing and in depth character studies, this isn't for you, I was left not caring who killed who, why, where or when.
A very slow suspense type story, like a psychological thriller, but the characters lacked depth and I found it easy to guess who the 'baddie' was before it was revealed. Also for a psychological thriller the storyline was totally unrealistic.
