What the Critics Say

Praise for Michael Robotham's writing:
"Will have you turning the pages compulsively." (The Times)
"Robotham doesn't just make me scared for his characters, he makes my heart ache for them." (Linwood Barclay)
"Superbly exciting...a terrific read." (Guardian)
"Life or Death is a nerve-shredding thriller with the heart and soul so often missing from lesser crime and suspense novels. I couldn't stop reading, yet I didn't want Audie's story to end. Robotham is an absolute master." (Stephen King)

    "*HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT*"

    I love Michael Robotham. But, I've finished up feeling very flat. I'm not a fan of books where the characters are speaking for themselves.

    Aside from that, the storyline was very boring and I've fast forwarded through half of it. But listening to the end. It got better about four hours from the end.

    The narrator, Lucy Price-Lewis is okay for a woman narrator. Says things as they are and doesn't use the soft feely nicey tone of voice as most women do.

    Would I spend the money if I knew it was written like this - no.

    Highly recommend but not for the feint hearted. I love how the book is presented from the two main characters and takes us through their journey.

    Narration was fantastic. A very interesting book mostly about a mental illness, sad in parts , an excellent story . This really kept me listening, I could've listened to it all at once if i had time .
    Typically good book from Robotham

    "Loved this"

    Michael Robotham writes individual books and so far I've enjoyed them. This book was beautifully written and read. It does encompass crime but is not a 'blow 'em away' police drama. Well worth the five stars I gave it.

    Story
    "Well, I did listen to the end"

    Ever have the feeling that an author has been pressed too hard to produce a "winner" for its Time? This era has prompted some faux news and this novel feels as though some very used, pre-digested elements which came from a t.v., soft news story, have all been laboriously regurgitated as a pop story.
    It is painful to see a normally entertaining writer succumb to the tedious memes of fertility issues, Home Counties mums, mummy bloggers, blah, blah.. Really?
    There is no tension, there is no surprise - it feels like it's lost in a non genre, too well!
    Please. Writers. Stop using one narrator, end of chapter, another narrator... getting wearying and overused.
    Going to limp off now and read something meaty from the 70's where the literary voice was respected and had a chance to sparkle.

    "Enjoyable but...."

    This is such a change of genre for this author that I actually found myself wondering if he really wrote it!
    It is a good story and beautifully written characters whom I could not help but feel empathy towards.
    However there are some inaccuracies to do with pregnancy and birth which I feel there is really no excuse for these days...not exactly difficult to research!
    On the whole I enjoyed this but really hope that the author brings us more Joe O'Loughlin instead! Stick to what you're brilliant at 😉

    "Different for his usual novels"

    Once I started to listen I was swept away in the emotions of the story. An excellent book , I think it's well worth a listen, but I imagine for some people it may be quite difficult.

    "Not the normal Michael Robotham"

    Very different from his previous books. Could this be a woman writing under a man's name? Very good though, really enjoyed it.
