A psychological thriller?

This story was just ok; I found myself not really caring about the story and its characters. I did not find it to be “riveting”.

A little slow in parts

Though the book moved along slowly in some areas, it was really good. The narration was great, and kept a good pace, keeping me interested.
I really enjoyed it!

Confusing

Characters seemed to be the same person. Very confusing plot and extra characters not part of the story but thrown in at the end.

The story that would never end.

I feel like this book had potential. There were some good parts and interesting ideas, but it went on and on, unnecessarily.

Between that and the fact that I had pretty much figured out who the “bad guy” was made the many twists needless and exhausting.

So nice I've listened twice

I really enjoyed the book. It was exactly what I think of when I think of a psychological thriller.

Boring

it's not a horrible book - but it definitely ain't great. the ending makes me want to shrug my shoulders and throw my device across the room. An unrealistic finish and a horrible zenith.

Kind of disappointed with the ending

This was a good story; however, I found the ending to be a little disappointing. It had this buildup toward the end and then it just seemed to fade away. I was expecting something bigger and it was kind of a let down. Other than that, I enjoyed it and thought the narration was good.
