    "I really tried..."

    After conflicting reviews, some love or, some abhor the book, I decided to go for it. I struggled to stay interested. Not because the characters aren't interesting, but because one is a bit too all over the place, going from being strong willed, to damsel in distress, to blacking out (though not sure if it's alcohol, which she mentions, or another issues, because she fainting and blacking out, when she hadn't been drinking too) and another character who the term "deeply disturbed" would barely scratch the surface. I don't mind reading about dark and disturbed characters, but this one was overly cringeworthy, for no real purpose. To me, you don't need that much vile descriptives to enforce the character as disturbed. (And this is coming from someone who uses the "F word" as a comma!)
    I tried to force myself to listen, but only made it about 2 hours into the book, after more than a week of waiting to "be hooked" in, and it just didn't happen. Instead I would just feel unsettled and frustrated, that I wasn't getting out of it, what I wanted; which is a captivating psychological thriller.

    "Persevere with the slightly slow start."

    Having just finished Frailty and The Optician's Wife by the same author, I was a bit worried about the slow start to this book, but well worth continuing to the great second half of the book.

    "You have to stick with it!"
    What did you like most about The Quiet Ones?

    It took a while to draw me in but overall the story once it did grip really led you on. A couple of good twists that are hard to see coming and a good ending.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I felt the second half of the book was much better paced and better written than the first. That is why I said at the beginning to stick with it!


    Which character – as performed by Suzanne Cerreta – was your favourite?

    Really focussed on the main character.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Old sins cast long shadows!


    Any additional comments?

    I received this audiobook from Bloodhound Books in return for a fair review. I really felt at the beginning of the book that the author was using too much description and it took a while to grab me. But there came a point at which she seemed to have much more belief in her story and it really took off from there. Probably wouldn't have listened to it all if I hadn't been reviewing it but I am glad I did!

    "Awesome!"

    Must confess I'm a fan of Betsy's written work anyway.
    This is 1st audio of hers I've listened to. Excellent storyline! Excellent. I know saying twists can annoy some people but this is twist galore! Couldn't second guess the way this went at all.
    I said OH NO quite loudly at work at 1 point, my hubby came straight over with what's wrong. Thinking I'd done something at work. Told him why & he shook his head. Until I explained the plot & why I was shocked.
    It was that good!
    Def looking for more.
    Narrator was very good, different accents & tempo as story picked up & calmed down.
    Just excellent!

    "Very interesting"

    Interesting story. A bit slow at times but it still captured my interest throughout. The narrator did a good job but as a non native English speeker, it was sometimes difficult to keep up with Jacobs parts due to the accent.
    Well worth listening to!
