Enjoyed trying to figure book put. Good book

The audio for the read version is really well done. I enjoyed this book and also that it tricked me and I was unable to unravel it before the book tells the truth about what has happened and happening. I recommend this book a lot

What a long strange trip!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Possibly, it can get very confusing at times.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I did kinda guess two of the facts at the end, but still wasn't quite sure. I would probably have to listen again to see. It was just a strange story and changed course quite a bit.

Could you see No Kiss Goodbye being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

This would be a CRAZY movie, very trippy I think. It's like one of those long weird dreams where things don't make sense but you react as if they do. People talk in riddles, and in circles. Very creepy!

Any additional comments?

By far one of the weirdest stories I've ever heard. After so many bizarre interactions with the characters, I just kinda went with the flow - the story is supposed to be bizarre!

Great read! Annoying narrator!

Very chilling story - keeps you guessing till the end. The narrator has a sing song voice which detracts from the storytelling.

Too long and drawn out

I really wanted to love this book, but I couldn't. It was too drawn out and too many loose ends were left untied at the end. It jumped around a lot and I had a hard time following between past and present.

A Brain Frazzle

This book certainly takes you all around the mulberry bush and could be hard to follow for some. Took me a while to figure out the English accent versus the Irish. I think I had figured out the issue and ending so to speak early on. But then there entered so many other people and so many time jumps that I just wasn’t sure. Some of the ending explanations did have me surprised. Lots of things to sort through. Some were left undone. Overall it was a creative idea and good story but it was difficult to follow in places. Transitions were not as smooth as I believe they could have been. Glad I got it. Probably read it again just to see if I missed some things that may have helped me to the ending. Narrator was good. Needs some work on the male voices. That’s hard to do. Good differentiation in the ladies though. Amazed at how she could go to the Irish as quickly as she did.

Read the book, not listen.

I wasn't able to finish the first chapter, the womans voice isn't the right tone for the character. Very annoying.

Worst narration ever

It was hard listening to this book because the narrators voice was so annoying. I think I would have enjoyed it better had it been read by someone else, the tone was going thru me. The book in itself was ok I just couldn't get into it because of the narration
