A Thriller with lost potential.

What did you like best about The Hairdresser? What did you like least?

I thought the story had potential to evolve but it simply did not expand as I thought was possible.

If you’ve listened to books by Natasha A. Salnikova before, how does this one compare?

This is my first time she has talent and will listen to some of her other books.

Have you listened to any of Tim Lundeen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No but he is a good narrator and gave me more motivation to continue with the Audible Book.

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

Not unless the plot was changed.

Any additional comments?

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Very disturbing listen

There were very disturbing aspects to this listen but I knew that going in. I mean, Hairdresser is a serial killer how could that not be disturbing. True to form, when we are inside Hairdresser's head it is incredibly unsettling.

The twists and turns of this listen are what makes it a great listen. We get a variety of perspectives with a variety of backstory's and we get sensitized and desensitized in the process.

The cop was admirable, overworked and misunderstood.
The main female character, and the object of Hairdressers obsession, was likeable and unlikeable in equal measures.
Hairdresser raised the ick factor to an exponential degree and yet no one who knew him, "knew" him.

The narration was excellent. As stated above, there is a variety of characters with a range of emotion and the narrator kept in step. That's actually remarkable when you consider how many times the POV changed and the degree of emotion from sanity to insanity and from clarification to complete nonsense.

I'm not sure if this listen is for everyone but it is the embodiment of psychological thriller.

Great psychological thriller!!!

What an excellent writer! Kept me on the edge of my seat throughout!

Tim Lundeen did a great job of narrating. He made the characters come alive.

Disappointed

This book read like a really bad Lifetime movie script. This is the first book I’ve listened to that I could not bear to finish. Going into this book, I was excited, thinking it would be similar to Caroline Kepnes’s book, You. Far from it. I hate to write a negative review, especially since this is a really competitive industry; however, I owe it to my fellow listeners to stay away!!
