Broken recording - avoid purchase!!!

Any additional comments?

As mentioned by other users the recording is broken around 6 hours 40 minutes in for me. Very frustrating when you are that far into the plot!

Completely Absorbing

As the years have gone on, Lisa Jewell's writing has taken on a whole new form. This novel is really quite different from her previous novels, it reminded me a lot of The Truth about Melody Brown but with a male protagonist instead, I really enjoyed this very original novel!

This book is told from varying times and narratives, all woven together with Lisa Jewell's fabulous linguistic skill. The way this book is structured, it draws you in and makes you definitely utter that phrase 'one more chapter!' I think this was definitely my favourite aspect of this novel. I love a dual or multiple narrative, and because of the mystery aspect of this particular novel, you have to keep reading on to see what clues there are, as to the mystery man, in the next section of the book!

I didn't necessarily warm to the characters in this novel as much as I did to some of the other characters that Lisa has created. Lily's side of the story is definitely very interesting and definitely helps lead us to who the mystery man might be, but we don't learn an awful lot about her as a person, we don't need to, and so I think this is why I didn't warm to her. Alice is the classic mother hen and I really like the fact that she has to push her own boundaries in order to look closer to see not just a man who needs her help but someone she can help discover who he is! The man in question is definitely interesting and I loved finding out more and more about him and the story unravels.

Another things about this book that I definitely did identify with was that one of the main families is from Harrogate and another is from Croydon, that's basically my marriage and so that was fun to read! Overall this was an incredibly engrossing book. I love Lisa Jewell as a writer and she has the power to hook me in and keep me turning pages until that book is done! I definitely recommend this book to Lisa Jewell fans, and if you are new to this author then you are definitely in for a treat!

Fabulous book

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Great story which kept me guessing, terrific narrator with a talent for accents and an overall 'don't want to put it down' experience.

Long long long!!!!

Story was long and quite tedious at times. The narrator was shocking at accents!
