Gripping, intelligent psychological suspense
- Tracey "I am a voracious reader (average about 4-5 Audible books a week, in addition to those I "eyeball".) I have been hooked on recorded books since the time of cassettes/CDs and was thrilled when I became an Audible member in 2007. I find reader reviews good guides to spending my credits, so have finally decided to write a few (although, I would rather be reading!)"
A chilling, gripping tale of obsession
Yes. It is gripping and chilling and fully shows the power that obsession and deceit and guilt can all have. The narrators were all superb, with the possible exception of Rowan, who was just OK...
I liked how it all tied together, except for the ending... without spoiling it, I personally don't like what the family did... but it would have been out of character for them to do anything else... I guess my ambivalence about the climax of the story is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
The narrators for Darcy, Lydia and Sophie were superb! I will be checking them all out!. Rowan's narrator was just ok, with very little nuance.
Read this book! It is both a cautionary tale about the power of obsession and just a thrilling good read!
