Critic Reviews

Praise for Between You and Me:
"What a page turner! Compelling, chilling and an incredibly impressive debut." (Alexandra Brown)
"It's certainly one of the best debuts I have read in a while, it's compelling and shocking, and very cleverly crafted." (The Book Review Café)
"Hall packs a punch with this one and the ending left me gasping." (For the Love of Books)
"It is disturbing and chilling. It feels very real. And a quick mention for that twist! I did not see that coming at all. I usually spot these things and I didn't! Clever! Very clever!" (Northern Crime Reviews)
"Between You and Me is that kind of book. The one that makes you feel like you're there, you're experiencing the emotions, the hurt, the pain." (Bibliophile Book Club)
"Lisa Hall has wrote a harrowing, disturbing and chilling novel which I couldn't help but devour in a matter of days. She's one of those authors you don't see coming and bang best seller, up there with the greatest crime writers like Stuart McBride and Lee Child. She's one to watch." (Brunette Lifestyle)
"It is well written, emotional and jaw dropping. More please!!" [Jo Robertson, (NetGalley)]

Good grief

It had all the hallmarks of decent book. However I found the stupidity of the "clueless " heroine to finally see through what was happening tiresome. And the ending beyond ugh. Especially when a neighborly bystander knew exactty what was going and did not intervene. Very disappointing.

Terrible Story

Great reader. Unrealistic ending, if you can even call it an ending. Utterly disappointed by this author. Seems like it was rushed to be finished. Even though it was a work of fiction, the book is dripping with hate for the type of victim the main character was.

Unable to finish it

I stopped listening at chapter 27. This woman's utter stupidity was driving me bonkers. It's as if the listener's intelligence is underestimated.

Okay Writing But So BORING!

I've certainly listened to worse but this book is going on my list of Worsts! The entire thing was just so boring and so melodramatic. The main character is unbelievably naive and foolish choosing to overlook the obvious again and again and again which I found so annoying!!! The story has too many characters many of which were completely unnecessary as far as I could tell and NOT ONE is likeable! There is no suspense and no real mystery just a bunch of nonsensical drama that can all be seen in a lifetime television show. Cheating husband, insecure, suspicious wife with a traumatic past, jealous neighbor, 'hot' neighbor, uppity PTA ladies, "strange" behaviors in everyone.....blah blah blah blah blah! It just keeps going on and on round and round never getting to the point!

Don't waste your time or your money!

Disappointing Storyline

Extremely disappointed in this storyline. The ending made no sense...especially since the answer was right there. Do not buy this book

Awful Reading!

Total waste of money! I can't finish listening as the narration and awful attempt at character voices makes it unbearable!

Predictable

I find it very peculiar that with such a twist in her first book, "Between you and me," that this one should be so predictable from the very beginning. Also, the book ended very "unfinished" for me. There were lots of obvious things that could have been done to put this to rest very easily without the hours it took to listen to it. A protagonist that blind is just not believable at all—especially with all she'd been through previously. I hate to say that I was very disappointed with this one, as I was really looking forward to it. I should have taken heed to the many reviews that said it was predictable.

I was entertained but NOT impressed at all.

Hm. I’m a fan of Lisa Hall and I’ve had this book in my wish list for a while but the low ratings deterred me from getting it. But I decided to just go for it and I ended up liking the pacing and and the twists. However, the other reviews are accurate that emphasize how utterly clueless the main character, Steph, is. She really is excruciatingly oblivious to all the obvious stuff happening around her so it makes the events easier to unravel— but very unrealistically. This book has the framework for a great psychological thriller with a lot of twists and turns but the execution is so oddly unbelievable. The ending was extremely unfortunate and wholly unsatisfying. On a positive note, I was still able to remain engrossed in the drama and suspense from start to end, as far fetched as it was. I was entertained but most definitely not impressed, so it wasn’t a total loss and I don’t regret getting it.

I loved this book.

This book was amazing. I'd suggest this book to people that like Psychological Thrillers, with a twist that makes you think. "What the heck did I just read?"

Kept me listening

What did you like best about Tell Me No Lies? What did you like least?

The story flowed well and had a lot of background info that weaved into the dynamics helping it all to make sense.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I wanted the main character to get a backbone and wake-up! The root of the problem was obvious throughout but she just wouldn't see it. Even though I couldn't quit listening, I had a hard time believing someone could be this stupid and fragile.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I liked the narrator's female voices but the male voices were just plain awful.

Any additional comments?

I hated the ending. I hated that her doctor and husband refused to listen to her, and never understood the reason for Olivia's presence in the story or why Tessa was not re-introduced at the end. The fact that no one would check into her accusations is not believable at all.

Better than The Girl on the Train

I loved this book! What a story and what a couple of nasty bitches Lila and Jasmine are! I was tearing my hair out for Steph by the end! Mark is a typical stupid man and the only think I didn't like was his Scottish accent but doesn't take away from what a wonderful and gripping story this is! I loved it!

Unbeleiveable story

It’s a shame as this had the potential of being a gripping story but it was spoilt with wishy washy plots,and the voices of the male characters,the narrator needs to practice a bit more on that,as for the ending well I’m speechless

If there isn't a sequel to this then I'm very disappointed

Hate the ending! Rushed, no tone to it; with how it ended it really made me feel like I'd wasted my time on this! Pointless story since the ending was so so poor! No conclusion to it so If your not going to finish a story. Don't bother starting it!
Really sad as I enjoyed this authors first book

Conclusion was unexpected

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The final scene

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