Intense and thrilling.

This novel had a great storyline. It was full of raw emotion and had the most surprising twist. Lots of characters in the mix but surprisingly no one was lost.

Troublesome novel about kidnapped children

From the Cradle is detective mystery about the abuse and kidnapping of very young children. It was difficult for me to listen to and now that I am finished I regret it. The book is excellent, but I cannot recommend it.

Ok but not brilliant

I thought this storyline was good, if maybe a bit far fetched, but the writing was clumsy and a bit juvenile in parts. It was easy enough listening but not as slick as it could have been.

Total nonsense

Not a single character that could evoke any feelings in me, the story was convoluted, far fetched and absolute nonsense. It also jumped all over the place.

The only reason I managed a second star was that I did actually see it through to the end - so I did want to get to the answer - it wasn't worth the torture of the tale though.
