Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Missing Pieces of Sophie McCarthy by B. M. Carroll, read by Kirsty Gillmore, Jane Drinkwater, Natasha Jacobs, Stan Pretty, Olivia Beardsley, Adam Fitzgerald and Katrina Bowker. 

She's the victim.
But is she so innocent?

Sophie McCarthy is known for her determination, ambition and brilliance at work. She's tough, but only because she wants to get the best out of people.

Aidan Ryan is strong, honourable and a family man. He's tough, too; the army requires it. 

When these two strangers are brought together in a devastating incident, Sophie's life is left in ruins. Her family wants to see Aidan pay for what he did.

Aidan's prepared to sacrifice everything - including his marriage and his child - to fix the mess he's made. 

But some things can't be fixed, and Sophie is not at all what she first appeared....

Terrific!

I wanted to keep listening. Great analysis of personality types, real problems people cope with, and most importantly, How they cope with them. Kudos to the author and narrator!

Not my favorite

Narration: Pretty good except for one of the voices I found really annoying (but luckily she spoke the least).
Story: Decent writing style. Character development for some of the characters also pretty good but for others, their actions and decisions throughout were entirely implausible, in fact quite bazaar. While it opened with an interesting premise, this was a strange story that somehow manages to never really get started and to culminate in zero resolution...I'm not ruling out giving this author another shot, but this particular title is not a favorite.

Very enjoyable

An entertaining, at times gripping, story with very real, believable characters. Narration of Sophie was excellent but Dee and Jasmine were questionable. Overall I really enjoyed it.

Clunky narration

For me the narration really got in the way of this story. There were very few voices I enjoyed, or moved naturally with the story. I may have enjoyed the book more if I’d read it - but I’ll never know.

Very Moriarty like

I downloaded this book because it was recommended by Liane Moriarty. I can see why she recommended it. The format is very similar to her books. The many characters intertwined. The anticipated climax of the crux of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I found myself completely sympathetic to some characters, frustrated by some, and strongly wishing for karma for others.
The only reason I gave the 4 stars for performance was due to the annoying narration by Dee and Jasmine.
I'm now on the lookout for the next novel by B.M.Carroll
