What a journey..

This book is a must read. If you like an intelligent crime mystery with a compulsive story, literally jaw dropping twists and turns, and thoroughly believable plot. Don't delay it's a corker!

Fabulous page turner really different storyline

I loved this book and could not stop listening and felt bereaved when it was finished. This is a very clever book with a great story. It is written by a psychotherapist and some of the psychoanalytic concepts introduced as part of the story are really well done and sit within the overall narrative without being pretentious. I was captivated by the two main characters, Theo and Alicia and felt they were really well developed by the author who clearly understands people and how childhood experiences can reverberate through adult life impacting on our actions. I absolutely did not see the end twist, which is unusual as there is so often a clue early on, this was a real bolt out of the blue. I also enjoyed both narrators and felt they aptly depicted the characters. I really hope this author produces more work as this book was exceptional.

It got me

It gets you hooked pretty quickly.
The characters are very likeable and you’re taken down a path of sympathy and intrigue leading to a conclusion that you cannot guess at any point.

Oh just SO good!

First of all, the one thing that can make or break an audio book is the narrator(s). And these two narrators just nailed it. Perfectly matched to their characters and so lovely to listen to.

The story kept my attention from beginning to end and I was right in the story with the characters the entire time.

I usually go for more light hearted audiobooks but I’m so glad I decided to try a different genre, this one is one of my all time favourite audio books.

Recommend to all my friends!

Dumbest book I have ever read

The twist is terrible. This book tried too hard to be clever but it seriously failed. And to make it worse, the ending was over-explained. I don't rate this book at all. My three year old niece could shit out a better story than this.
