Publisher's Summary

Life is good for university friends Sarah, Ruth, Charlotte and Kathy - it's summer, exams are over and they're escaping to a cabin by the Blue Pool. But then Sarah disappears without a trace.
Twenty-five years later, a man walks into a police station claiming to know something about the missing girl. Suddenly the three women - now estranged - all become suspects. For not everything was as it seemed, and the greater the secret, the deeper it lies....

Loved this!

Any additional comments?

This is a cracking read/listen and the narration is a joy. Aoife McMahon does an really impressive job here in voicing the various characters, their moods and tones. The writing isn't faultless by any means, but the characters are all engaging and it is a great tale. Unlike some other books around in this genre, far from fizzling out a little towards the end, this was a relatively slow burn in the early chapters in order to provide much needed background to the later events. The story was always engrossing, but the last third or so romped along to a very satisfying ending.

Want to listen to a Quality Thriller- Buy This One

Where does The Blue Pool rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This ranks as one of the very best....one I WILL read again, and again.. Terrific work by the narrator too. This story really grabs you and you absolutely cannot wait to find out what really happened! The ending packs a very unexpected punch too.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Blue Pool?

This novel is so well written that it stays on in the memory for ages after finishing it. I simply wouldn't even want to try and dissect it into its' most memorable moments. That would probably detract from its' overall quality.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

As above.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

We all have hidden depths- but some are fathomless!

Any additional comments?

Thanks to Ann of Newcastle for recommending this novel. What a shame it hasn't yet found the fame on Audible that it so deserves. I am now about to buy Twisted River by Siobhan MacDonald who is a superb novelist, if this one is any measure. This novel lasts almost 11 hours and NONE of it wasted or padded out at all. It all matters and adds to the overall quality of characters and plot.

what a twist ending

Would you consider the audio edition of The Blue Pool to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print copy

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sarah as she was a free spirit and fun. Also torn between her dreams and her parents.

Have you listened to any of Aoife McMahon’s other performances? How does this one compare?

NO

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes definitely

Any additional comments?

I was shocked by the ending. I then went back and re-listened to certain parts and was really impressed by how clever the writing was.

Didn’t see the twist coming

Wasn’t too interesting in the first parts & didn’t find the story intriguing so would have given 3 stars. The end was definitely unexpected & then couldn’t wait to find out what happened. I’ll have to listen again, this time knowing the information might make it better.
