She quickly discovers that Anna was a loner with hearing difficulties and had disappeared for a week earlier in the year, only to return with perfect hearing, but with increasingly unstable behavior.

How Stupid.

In every situation, every Dr who said they couldn't talk to Melissa for confidential reasons, did. Getting a job at Timmons? How convenient. If she gave the recording to the police, why would she invite known killers into her studio by herself? Still no reason why SHE started hearing voices. Totally disjointed, lots of plot holes, and all the the voices of the Drs. are so similar that it was hard to know whom was talking, especially at the end. Stupid. It's Blair Witch meets idiotic Journalism meets Theranos. I might've liked this if the ending was better. Also, the explanation of Anna's ears cut off before she committed suicide is ridiculous. If she became as smart as she did after the "procedure", she'd know that it was a chip in her brain and not the outer ear was the cause of the voices. Listen if you want to be hooked on the first 7 episodes, but that last one was just plain stupidity.

Just Not For Me

I couldn't even get through 30 minutes. Maybe I should have given it more time, but I was instantly annoyed. Does not seem to be a TRUE crime

Gripping

Surprised me at how enthralled I was by Unheard. I picked it up as a Free Audible Book/Series & have been sitting on it for months! (I have been busy with Michael J Sulivan which for fantasy lovers is a must must must 17 & counting books/works all in one Original brilliant setting.... end random plug) I was not disappointed and will be looking into more like this series; between the various narrating voices and the long rabbit hole of events it pulled me through, start to end, over the course of my work day. Highly Recommended.

Unbelievable

The narration was okay. Some of the audio was difficult to understand- simulations of recordings, emotional outbursts where the words get slurred. The story itself was unbelievable- not at all realistic. The main character has guts but was something of an airhead.

Decent... a little different to listen to, but...

it was different to listen in this format, but not bad. The ending was a tad vague only truly tying up the bigger picture and not all the loose ends. Ah well... easy entertainment. easy listen. doesn't take a whole lot of concentration to keep story line together.

Hmmm

Well I enjoyed the production. I was bummed that Melissa Lopez got murdered in the end, but at least she exposed the truth.

Not what I expected

I listened to this book in anticipation of the different type of layout from traditional books. Set up as several podcasts regarding the death of Anna Winslow. The narrative was hard to follow with various moments fading in and out to mimic certain situations. The ending was forced and overacted by leaving me disappointed overall.
