    Story
    "made me scream in annoyance"

    Firstly, the narrator was fine except for the terrible American accent and the way she said fam-i-ly which drive me crazy.
    spoilers below



    The story, however, was ludicrous and the main character was a wimp. Why did she never confront her husband? any normal person would've asked him why he believes a woman he barely knows over his own wife. The husband goes from sweet and concerned to borderline abusive, swearing and calling her "f*ed in the head",etc. And instead of telling him off, she just takes it. When Alice clearly begins showing her true colors, Claire still keeps doubting herself and then when she confronts Alice, she never gets proof. Why doesn't she just take some pictures on her phone? Set up a hidden camera? Demand a DNA/paternity test? Take her kids and leave? When Alice is in the hospital, wait till her mother comes and show her the wrong eye color?
    The ridiculous way the main character acts and lack of simply talking clearly to her family make the whole book incredibly annoying and difficult to listen to.

    "I thought I had it figured out..."

    I thought I had it figured out and then I got a surprise I really didn't see coming. I felt a bit disappointed and also that there were some story holes. But very good just the same. Definitely recommended listening.

    "Good summer read"

    well narrated, but fewer stars because it was too predictable and there was a glaring error which editors should have caught.

    I can devour an audiobook. It's taken the place of television for me. I love fiction, mysteries, auto-bios....even cookbooks.

    "Most frustrating book ever...weak woman...again."

    My description says it all. Not boring, bit worse, frustrating, and the main character needed to get some guts. Sigh....not how i would have handled the situation. OY

    "Characters were unbelievable"

    The plot was decent and I thought the narrator did a good job, but I could not get past the way the main character's family, particularly her husband, treated her or how she didn't even care! It was very unbelievable.

    Story
    "Wow, that was intense!"

    Set on the central eastern coast of England, Sister Sister is the story of sisters Claire and Alice who were separated when Claire was 9 years old and Alice was 4. Their dad left Claire and her mother as he took Alice with him to Florida. Now, more than a quarter century later, Claire is an attorney married to an artist and they have two daughters. Claire's mother lives with the couple. After years of searching for Alice, Alice suddenly contacts her mother and sister from her Florida home. That merely sets up the novel.

    In the tradition of great psychological thrillers Sister Sister grabs the readers attention and will simply not let go; it is a wild ride with many twists and turns as the likely crazed or evil person changes with each twist. Sister Sister is a must listen audio book.

    Helen Keeley's narration with her clipped east coast English accent is simply perfect for the geographical location of Sister Sister.

    "Good thriller, more than expected"

    Shortly after starting this book I knew what was going on. I continued listening though and it was an entertaining story, despite knowing the ending... However, I didn't know the ending and it was more complex than I had guessed. I was glad to be surprised and it certainly added to the book. A decent psychological thriller.

    Helen Keeley does a great job of narrating this story. She's engaging and entertaining.

    "Glad the ordeal of listening is over!!!!"
    Would you try another book written by Sue Fortin or narrated by Helen Keeley?

    No


    Has Sister Sister put you off other books in this genre?

    No but this was so predictable and not realistic


    What three words best describe Helen Keeley’s performance?

    boring
    flat
    no emotion


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    It was predictable, not even realistic in places, a solicitor who finds evidence but takes no pictures? No really was expecting good things but no I am let down and disappointed as I love to rave about new books.

    "So much potential..."

    Well narrated but story lacked...something. It was blatently obvious early on what was going on with Alice. Would have been more entertaining if it had been more subtle and part of the twist. The reactions of Clare's closest friends and family were cringingly unrealistic when Clare raised her suspicions. The ending could have been so much better. Instead, it felt rushed and turned out to be a huge anticlimax.

    Story
    "Well-paced predictable paint-by-numbers 'thriller'"

    I have absolutely no idea how people can say this was gripping and surprising? This is a formula plot, with the 'bad character' and supporting cast easily spotted in the first few chapters. Even the detail dropped in as background was verging on 'neon signpost' obvious. Thriller 101, this paint-by-numbers mystery is light entertainment. The protagonist is an annoying female, who seems a little slow on it. The husband and mother feel unrealistic and weirdly cliche; no one wld actually respond to these events like they are portrayed in this novella.

    Keeley is an adept narrator and her well-paced, nicely toned, narration is lovely to listen to.

    Its a light, easy listen... it's not a mystery unless you are trying really hard not to see all clunky clues. Like I have said, its perfectly acceptable pap for the masses. A fine read if you are looking park your brain - I found it perfectly suited for my morning commute as no brain-cells required.

    "Meh..."

    Enjoyed it up until Clare realises who the baddie is , and promptly lets him know while they are alone... after that I got bored. Guessed a lot of the story... a bit of a rushed ending.
