Editorial Reviews

Sunday Times best-selling I Let You Go is the debut novel written by Clare Mackintosh and is masterful in its creation, enormously talented in its writing and is an expertly narrated audiobook by voice actors David Thorpe and Julie Barrie. The very deepest of emotions surrounding the shock of a tragic accident are examined in this flawlessly constructed story. Listeners are absorbed entirely into the plot and are stunned with a twist at the end that could never have been predicted. Clare Mackintosh has taken the contemporary fiction genre by storm with this new release. Available now from Audible.

A tragic accident. It all happened so quickly. She couldn't have prevented it. Could she?
In a split second, Jenna Gray's world descends into a nightmare. Her only hope of moving on is to walk away from everything she knows to start afresh. Desperate to escape, Jenna moves to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast, but she is haunted by her fears, her grief, and her memories of a cruel November night that changed her life forever.
Slowly Jenna begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating....

Felt I'd read it before

If you could sum up I Let You Go in three words, what would they be?

Exciting but predictable,

What does David Thorpe and Julie Barrie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I thought they both did a tremendous job of reading, but their inconsistent Welsh accents and pronunciation were a bit hit and miss, sorry.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The reunion with her sister

Fabulous debut!

Where does I Let You Go rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I found it difficult to put it down.

Any additional comments?

I am very much looking forward to more from this author. This book was highly compelling. Intelligently written, with great characters and rich context that gave me a real sense of being there with Jenna. Despite being brutal in its content, it was penned with a light touch. Highly recommended.

Absolutely brilliant!

WOW! One of the best psychological thrillers I have listened to in ages. I can't actually believe this is a debut novel. The twists and surprises were jaw dropping. My emotions were all over the place with this one. I am not even going to go into any description of what the story is about for fear of spoiling it. Very cleverly written, the characters were all really excellent.
David Thorpe and Julie Barrie were both fantastic. Julie Barrie had me close to tears several times, while David Thorpe's sinister, evil voice felt truly threatening.
Loved it! I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.

Not quite what the synopsis leads you to believe

After a few twists the story turns out to be a very detailed and disturbing account of domestic violence. No warning given .... please be warned
