I struggled to get into this book. After a few chapters, I really became hooked on the story. I didn't realize the book was almost over and when it ended I just could not believe that was how this book ended. I suppose I thought this book was going in a different direction. Disappointed that I wasted my time listening to it all the way through.

This was a fair story and the reader was fine but I had to listen to his inhales of breath and swallowing through the whole book which drove me nuts. Surely there was a way to edit those sounds! The story has been told a million times and I was waiting for a twist but alas, it never came.

This audiobook has extremely poor narration. I couldn't listen to more than three chapters before I returned the audiobook. I'm hoping that audible releases a new version with a new narrator as they did with Mitzner's last title 'losing faith' from last year.
I'd urge anybody else who finds the narration poor to email audible and let them know. I'm really sad that I can't enjoy this latest Mitzner release as I'm a big fan of his stories!
Would you listen to The Girl from Home again? Why?
No , I don't think its a repeat read/listen kind of book.
What other book might you compare The Girl from Home to, and why?
John Grisham, Michael Connolly.
Realistic dramatic storylines involving character strengths and failings, atonement, development, ethics.
What three words best describe Jonathan Walker’s performance?
Not particularly notable or memorable for anything - which is good and as it should be. That lets the story do the work.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Great book. A fantastic audio book to keep as a treat for when you are passing time commuting running etc.
