Publisher's Summary

A chilling psychological thriller about a marriage, a way of life, and how far one woman will go to keep what is rightfully hers....

Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage. Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago, as she, the killer, and he, the victim, rush haplessly toward the main event. He is a committed cheater; she lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds; she likes to settle scores. He decides to play for keeps; she has nothing left to lose. Told in alternating voices, The Silent Wife is about a marriage in the throes of dissolution, a couple headed for catastrophe, concessions that can’t be made, and promises that won’t be kept. Expertly plotted and reminiscent of Gone Girl and These Things Hidden, The Silent Wife ensnares the listener from its opening lines and never lets go.

    Story
    "Verbose & unmemorable"

    I'm always up for a good description, and this story has it in spades, but ultimately goes too far, with descriptions of small, unimportant events taking. Up page after page, often at the detriment of the storyline.

    "VERY WORST FEMALE NARRATOR"

    I managed to listen on 1.25 speed . A pity because the story is quite good.

    "All I can say is thank you Audible for the refund"

    This is the worst book I have ever listened to. The story and the narrator were equally bad.

    "Don't bother"

    Boring. Finished it only because I had already started it. The narrator is as boring as the female character - Jodi.

    Story
    "Good, but not what I was expecting"

    Before choosing an audiobook I read the reviews extensively, both about the book itself and the performance. From my research I started this book under the impression that a majority of the novel would be the suspense and actual act of her finally murdering her husband. In reality the book is 85% background and character development, 5% the lead up and actual act to the murder, and 10% resolution. This being said I actually enjoyed the book. The character development was incredibly interesting and the twist at the end (while not really a twist) was not something I saw coming.

    "Not a girl power book or thriller"

    I wouldn't compare this book to gone girl. The wife was difficult to like and the plot was predictable. The narrator did a great job. It dragged on a little with not much action. this could of been a better story if some more twists and turns were added. Try listening to the kind worth killing that was an awesome book.

    "Don't waste your time"

    The entire story line was so long and drawn out. The book was so boring. I hung in to the end- thinking that a good part would take place but never did. Im shocked this is going to be made into a movie. They are going to have to spice it up. There is a lot of potential to do so but overall it was dreadful. A Very disappointed purchase.

    "Worth a credit and a read."

    Love the twist at the end. I actually just listened a second time because I knew I'd done this one before but it wasn't quite memorable enough for me to recall. So I enjoyed this book twice.

    "Not climatic, disappointment"

    This book in my opinion was very boring. Someone referred to it as a "Gone Girl" which would have been twisted and exciting, but this was nothing of that. It told so much about the character background and I awaited for it to take off, but it never did. This was truly a disappointment.
