Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Our Kind of Cruelty by Araminta Hall, read by Nick Hendrix and Eleanor Matsuura.

Passion, obsession... and murder. A deeply unsettling psychological thriller in which a secret game between lovers has deadly consequences.

Most of us spend our whole lives searching for the person who’ll make us feel complete.

But Mike and Verity know they’re different. They’ve found their soulmate, and nothing can tear them apart.

Not even the man Verity is marrying.

Because they play a secret game, one they call 'the Crave', to demonstrate what they both know: that Verity needs Mike, and Mike alone. But Mike knows that Verity's impending marriage will raise the stakes of their game higher than ever before.

Critic Reviews

"Simply one of the most disturbing thrillers I've read in years. In short I loved it, right down to the utterly chilling final line." (Gillian Flynn)
"A tense intelligent thriller that kept me gripped and guessing until the last page - and thinking long after that." (Erin Kelly)
"Toxic love, obsession, and the unflinching unravelling of a mind. Scarily plausible, a great read." (Ali Land)

Reminds me of Ruth Rendell/Barbara Vine

A good story but very reminiscent of Barbara Vine’s tale Going Wrong. Similar themes and treatment.

Compelling...but

Ok, so I listened to this over 2 days. It was really hard to switch it off. But...all the while I was waiting for the turn, the twist, the surprise and it never came. This is a good book, it held my attention. But ultimately, I felt let down, as it promised a fantastic denouement and it didn't really deliver that.

Interesting

Great story but it left me feeling intensely irritated! The main character was given too much time and by the end I was almost bored with the delusions! Too one sided.

Excellent narration

I loved this audio book, the story is compelling to hear and it has one of the best narrations I've listened to so far. I much prefer to hear a book from one narrator (apart from a short contribution from the female narrator) who reads the story in one voice without putting on accents or altering their tone of voice. More like this please,

Absolutely superb... Gripping, disturbing, moving

I listened first, then read on kindle and then had to listen again! Not yer average psychological thriller; as well as being skilfully plotted it is immaculately written.

Spine Chilling

I was gripped by this story and listened virtually all the way through. A great narration. Interesting psychological points made buy the author. Powerful and compelling with an ending that chilled me to the bone. I rarely give 5 stars but this book is worth it.

terribly written - misogynistic dribble

terribly written - misogynistic dribble from the get go with characters that are just impossible to relate to and naively written at best
