The story had such potential however the loose ends just stayed strayed and it was difficult to reconcile what the ending was. Why was this story told? What happened to everyone we met? If the end was better-the story would have been better. Why make us feel that utter tragedy so exquisitely only to have no outcome. It was strange. I’m not sure who the good guys were -or weren’t. Why did he give her the photos to hold on to? It just didn’t make sense. And what happened to her father? Anyway I enjoyed the story up til the end. Mostly because of the masterful narration by Joan Walker. She can read the phone book (do they still have those) and I would be enthralled!
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The story didn't go anywhere, and I'm rather cross that I simply didn't stop listening.
I found the way the story flipped between the two times a bit confusing, and I simply didn't Sam to any of the character in it.
I was hoping the history element would help, but it didn't.
Has The Photographer's Wife put you off other books in this genre?
No it hasn't, but I think I will read more reviews first. The only review on audible complained about the narrator, but actually she was fine. It was the content of the story that bored me.

Any additional comments?
I've heard that this author is very good, so probably just a bad book but I certainly wasted my time listening to this.
The narration of this book is the most ridiculous I've heard. The narrator runs on sentences and speaks in a constantly modulating pitch that is so grating and makes so little sense that I can't bear to listen. I tried to stick with it but gave up after 12 chapters. And that was good going. I have very little idea of how good the book is because the narration is so distracting.
