What the heck...
I listen to audible while I'm working or driving to and from work. Let me just say, you need to listen intently in the beginning, or you'll miss stuff in the end and you'll be very confused. The ending was great, until the very last plot twist, and then I was just annoyed. I don't think I would actually recommend this book to anyone.

Best thriller I've read in a long time!
What did you love best about Behind Her Eyes?
This book kept me guessing! Every time I thought I had an idea that I had it figured out, some other twist presented itself and I was sucked in again (trying to figure out the answer)
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
The plot did keep me on the edge of my seat and I found myself wanting to read/listen to the book during every spare minute I had!
Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No. But I liked the narrators very much.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I don't want to spoil this for anyone who hasn't read it, but YES! I had an extreme reaction during and at the end of the book.
Any additional comments?
Just read the book... don't read anything online about it ... just read it all yourself and WOW!

Not what I expected!
This book was a little slow getting started for me. I couldn't figure out what was really going on for most of the book. Thought I had it figured out and then the end came and was completely shocked! I thought it was a good listen if nothing else for the ending.

HATED the ending
I don't want to ruin this book for anyone, but I found the ending to be truly awful. This book was incredibly suspenseful and original in its story line, but I hated they way I felt when it was over. I'm unsettled and not in a good way. I didn't find the end to be clever, but written specifically for shock value. I hated it. I wish I had never spent my time listening to this book. I'm saddened by it.

Rolling My Eyes: A Review.
Half way through this book I thought maybe the reason I wasn't enjoying it (even remotely!) was because I wasn’t in the psycho-thriller mood. No. My mood is not taking responsibility. Let's start with the annoying characters: Louise is an idiot, Adele is a passive aggressive bitch, and David, let’s just say you have talked to cardboard boxes with more personality and depth than this guy. I can suspend disbelief like a champ but this book went way too far. Would the eventual plot twist and ending worked if it was just a plotting, revenge tale? Did it need the spoiler [supernatural twist]? Honestly, the way this love/revenge tale is solved/resolved is incredulous and wrought with holes that the book left me plain mad. Oh, and the #WTFthatending that all the rave reviews claimed would make this book the read of a lifetime, not so much. It makes me even more irate. Obviously, I am in the minority #DGAF.
