Very Enjoyable Listen

I very much enjoyed this book. The story was good it had some good twists and turns. It moved at a good pace. The book swaps between four characters (well three for the most part). It follows the story of a girl who has been kidnapped. The main characters are the kidnapper, the police man looking for the her and the mother. I can't say too much as I don't want to spoil the story, but it is interesting.

The narration was excellent. I liked the four person narration. I found all the voices enjoyable to listen to.

Very Disappointed

What disappointed you about The Good Girl?

Unconvincing love story and implausible plot. The love story was described as encompassing but I didn't feel it. If they were so close why didn't Mia confide in Colin. I felt no compassion for the characters.

Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Kubica again?

I have already purchased another book by Mary Kubica, I have not yet listened to it and I am now wondering if I have made a mistake.

Did the narrators do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

The narrators did a good job and I liked Abe.

What character would you cut from The Good Girl?

Difficult to say as the only character I had any liking for was the detective.

Any additional comments?

No.

Gripping

An interesting take with the story told by the kidknapper, mother and detective

I was gripped throughout, the story is sad when 'Owen' opens up about his life in poverty and although I guessed some of the narrative, the ending was a complete surprise

'Girl on a train' meets 'Gone Girl'

Written from the various charters points of view. Keeps you wanting to follow the story of the individual characters that form the whole story. This is a book of love and betrayal. The basics plot line of a kidnapping that doesn't go quite to plan. The characters are well written allowing the reader to see the interactions in their own minds. Although there are some predictable elements their is plenty that is unpredictable and keeps you listening. If you like Gone Girl and Girl on a Train you will like The Good Girl. The narration is also excellent and well cast.

Gem of a Book

I enjoy a lot of books and audio books but every now and then comes one that stands out The Good Girl is a stand out book. I really enjoyed the writing style I felt it captured real depth of the characters without wasting words and making me wish the author would just get on with it. The narration so often a deal breaker for me is just well ... perfect. My most enjoyable listen in a while.
