While reading The Perfect Neighbors, by Sarah Pekkanen, I continued to feel as if we remained in those first chapters of a book where the author is establishing the characters and setting- that surely something more than descriptive information would start to flow soon. But every storyline seemed to transition on to a weak climax or no climax at all. When I began a listening session before going to sleep one light, someone was was driving around in a vet and all of a sudden the narrators voice stopped and I was thanked for listening to the audiobook!!! I actually checked the counter on the app because o was so surprised the book was over!!! None of the storylines had been brought to a close- not enough for me anyhow.
And the narrator- Madeleine Maby? I just don't know. I'm pretty sure her voice just gets on my nerves . . . I even looked her up in the Web thinking maybe seeing her face would help me to put things together better. Nope. Ms Maby just didn't work for me. Sorry.
I would not recommend this book to friends. I can't figure out what is supposed to be the main idea.that neighbors are all different and they are all hiding things? That's typical for all neighborhoods everywhere.
