Publisher's Summary

For eight strangers in a Los Angeles hostel, even the other side of the world isn’t far enough. The craving for a new identity and the desire to start again is something they have in common. But they discover that it doesn't matter where you are or who you are - if you can't lay the past to rest, fate and coincidence have a way of catching up with you.

Loved this book.

Many interesting stories woven into one book. Loved it. Southern accent of reader sounded a bit like Bill Clinton though. lol

A great book.

I will be honest, I did struggle to cope with so many characters and the time changes but I am so pleased I stuck with it as I really enjoyed it. I loved the twists and the narrator really made it work for me.

A mixed up tale of travel, lies, murder and more!

Mr Marrs hits the sweet spot again! I really enjoyed 'The Good Samaritan' but I hated 'When You Disappeared' and went into this one with my fingers crossed but I needn't have worried as it blew my socks off.

It's a tale of many parts which contains the back stories and the present going on's of a rag tag group of people who converage on a run down hostel located in Los Angeles. The story starts off slowly and the chapters are quite small allowing the book to flow along nicely.

The narration is excellent with each character given their own voice, although there is one that sounds slightly like Sean Connery! I did start off disliking a few characters but by the time their stories were told my opinion had changed. That is down to the skill of the author.

Well worth a credit!

John Marrs is a Great Storyteller

I only discovered John Marrs recently and have already read all his books. His storytelling is superb and the narration has always been spot on. This book contains a wide range of interesting characters with a diverse range of back stories. I love John Marrs and I'm looking forward to The Passengers.

John Marrs never fails!!

A brilliant read. Slightly different to the other JM books I've heard as idylic livrs lasted a lot longer through the story then BANG...the sinister endings. My omly complaint is that there are mo more JM books on audible.

Disappointing

I’ve read a couple of books by John Marrs, I like his fast pace, no nonsense story telling, but Welcome to Wherever You Are was long and slow. In the end ( after restarting three times) I forced myself to get to the finishing line with a big sigh of relief. It picked up a little towards the end but not sufficiently to counter the boring beginning. Too many characters, too many past and present stories made it difficult to follow. Oh and the narrator - not a good choice, monotone and again boring (great if you want to be put to sleep) perhaps would’ve been better if a woman was used to do the female characters. To sum up disappointing, not to John Marrs usual high standards.

Excellent

Excellent story. I enjoyed the narrator. However, if you can’t get the accents on point then omit them. The whiny leprechaun Irish accents drove me insane. I’m Irish and it made me want to return the book but I’m glad I didn’t as the actual story it so intrinsically clever. I loved every part. John Marrs delivered again!

Awful

After many attempts to listen I still have no idea what this book is about. I find the narrator impossible to listen to. I love John Marrs as an author, and generally love his audiobook versions. This is a complete disappointment to me. I will think twice before choosing another John Marrs book, and definitely will avoid Peter Noble's narrations

Not his best<br />

I have really loved all his books so far but this one didn't quite make it... a long amble through coincidence, well intertwined to give an intriguing story but it lacked his usual shock tactics and unique way of surprising you just when you thought you had it sorted. it was quite hard to keep up with the backwards and forwards storyline of a book which just didn't quite he your attention or intrigue.
