Outstanding Shocker

I almost gave up in the early chapters. I'm so glad that I didn't. The ending totally blew my mind. I thought that I had it all figured out....wrong!! Definitely worth the time and the money invested. You won't be disappointed. At all. 😀😀😀

WORTH THE READ, TWISTS & TURNS!

I really liked this book - writing, story and narration were all great! It's right up my alley, and I was not disappointed. This is an intense one, and bad language doesn't bother me much, growing up in Philly ;) lol . I usually listen to audiobooks on my long commute, and I found myself wanting to just go for a ride to listen to find out what happens next. Really good stuff, I'd definitely recommend it. It's on the long side but that doesn't bother me at all :)

Watching You Was An Intriguing Listen

Audiobook: Watching You
This was an intriguing listen. There were a few things I didn't understand. In the story I wasn't sure how much time passed. Simon was a recurring character but I had him confused with some of the other men names such as David. While listening, I found myself drifting at times then something would grab me back in. If I'm being honest then I would've liked more character development and more editing as this was over 9 hours. The story was edgy but for me, not edge of my seat. It was still very good and I would recommend it.

Narration: Rosie Akeman made this audiobook so much better. She has excellent voice inflections and a terrific voice. I really enjoyed listening to her. At times it was her that kept me listening.

Compelling Mystery Thriller

'Watching You' follows Libby as she relives her traumatic past and fears for her future as the killer of her family is released from prison. Lynda Renham does a great job of delivering twists that I did not see coming, she successfully pulls off surprises I did not at all anticipate and that were very satisfying. The book takes place both in present day and 15 years in the past, when the murders in question took place. Rosie Akerman may have given us too much, at times, but overall does a good job of bringing the characters to life by using distinct voices for each character so that I could understand who was speaking without being named. If you like a good mystery, this is a book for you.

Gripping and Well Narrated

This was a an intriguing listen with an excellent and engaging narrator. I felt drawn in by the story from the first sentence, and cared about the protagonist at once. The tension was spread out perfectly, with details about what was happening and what had already happened being revealed at exactly the right pace. I felt totally involved the whole way.

This book was an excellent example of suspense fiction, and I look forward to more by this author and narrator.

Riveting!

Tense from the 1st paragraph!

Unfortunately too much bad language for me. I had to bail out early. I would have loved to listen to the entire audiobook.

Rosie Akerman, narrator did a good job.

Twists and turns held my attention throughout! Amazing how greed drives people!

A must listen to audiobook!

Christopher Lane did an excellent job of narrating

Found the flashbacks too confusing...

Watching You by Lynda Renham was an okay listen. I had really been hoping for more from this title when I agreed to review it. The summary sounded like a book that I would normally inhale. Unfortunately, I found myself taking long breaks between listening to sections of this book. I wanted to love it. Unfortunately I found the scenes between the present and the past a bit confusing. I had a bit of trouble jumping back and forth and knowing if what was happening was in the past or present. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that had issues with this. Overall, I just wasn't really able to get into this audiobook.

Rosie Akerman, in my opinion, did a great job narrating Watching You. I found her voice to be easy to listen to and she definitely added appropriate depth to her reading when necessary. I'd happily listen to more of her performances in the future. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.

Didnt like

I only stayed with it out of stubbornness. I found the narrator distracting, and her male voices to be ridiculous.
The story was dull, the only action right at the end. Hardly worth the hours it took to get there.

I cant tell if it was the story or narration that put me off..but this purchase was a fail for me.

Twists and turns

I thought this book was great. It gets you guessing and then when you think you've got it, you realise you haven't got a clue.

I like both the author and the narrator, and will definitely be keeping an eye out for them both in the future

It's going to be all right

Fifteen years ago, Lilly gave evidence which condemned a man for the murder of her Aunt and Uncle.
Fifteen years ago, Ewan was imprisoned for the murder of his employer and his wife - a crime he has always claimed he did not commit.
Now Ewan is free, and has a plan. And Libby is in fear of her life.

Naively written, the story alternates between the happenings of the fateful events of New Year's Eve at the millennium turn and the present day up, until the dramatic climax. Characterisation is reasonable, some of the chapters being presented in the first person from the point of view of Libby, herself. Unfortunately, this reader found both of the main protagonists unlikable but the story itself was good, maintaining the question of who did murder the couple if Ewan was, indeed, innocent?

The narration was excellent, Rosie Ackerman giving an, if anything, over dramatic performance, her young sounding voice clear, with excellent intonation, the somewhat hysterical nature of Libby reverberating in her reading. Her other character voices were also seperately differentiated.

Overall, an interesting read by an author I had not previously encountered, and a book which retained my interest despite my inability to connect with any of the characters. Despite the good and intense narration, this is a book which I would have preferred to read as text.

Most enjoyable

I have to confess, I had worked out the outcome of this thriller before the end. The clues were there if you paid close attention. However, and this is a sign of brilliant writing, knowing what was going to be revealed in no way spoiled the book for me. I was intrigued as to how Ms Renham was going to twist and turn the tale to fit the ending. The answer to that is very cleverly! Libby was a most unlikable character, and yet I couldn't help feel she was a product of her environment, and how desperately sad it all was. It demonstrated clearly the lesson I always try to convey to my children; not all problems can be solved by throwing money at them. Additionally, you can spend your life never quite having enough money and still be the richest person in the world. Watching You is a taut, well written thriller with a cast of credible characters. Rosie Akerman does a stand up job with the narration. The only reason this book gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because I had worked out what was going on. This is my first book by Lynda Renham, but it certainly won't be my last. Highly recommended.
