If She Only Knew.. pick another narrator

I have never read or listened to a book that painted the heroine in such an unattractive light.
Visions of the main character laying in her own vomit, did not evolke any emotion in me, because the writer never developed an emotional link between the main character and the reader.

The narrator tried to develop a voice to suggest how it would sound if the main characters jaw was wired shut...but he never lost the lisp..throughout the whole book....
Also the narrator was too raspy and unbelieveable in the love scenes. The voice was a struggle to listen till the finish.

Just Ok / Poor Narration

I was intrigued at first because the plot description give the impression that it would be an interesting story … a strange accident, amnesia, suspicious family members, evil lurking in the shadows… but my interest didn’t hold on to the end - I got bored about half way through.

The characters weren’t that remarkable (nor even likable!), the pace was slow, the love story between Marla and Nick seemed completely contrived (I felt it was there just as an excuse for the author to write sex scenes), and The Big Reveal at the end was somewhat predictable although I do admit to being surprised at some revelations.

I think perhaps I didn’t enjoy it because of the narrator. I regularly listen to Audiobooks in 1.5 to 1.8 speed and this often helps eliminate many of the complaints most people have about narrators, but in this case the tone was still flat and boring… it just helped me get to the end faster! Ha!

This might one of those rare cases where the movie (if there was one) is better than the book.
