Publisher's Summary

Washed up on the beach, she can't remember who she is. She can't even remember her name. Turns out, she has a perfect life - friends and family eager to fill in the blanks. But why are they lying to her? What don't they want her to remember? When you don't even know who you are, how do you know who to trust?

"I was immediately drawn into Mia's story from the first sentence.... The twisted, shocking end had me speechless!...I would definitely recommend The Girl from the Sea as a great summer read." (Truly, Jennifer)

A Bit Disappointing

I don't particularly care to write negative reviews unless a book is just horrible and this book was not. I respect it requires a tremendous undertaking of ability and creativity to write a book and entertain us readers, which I would not be able to accomplish. However, since I rely heavily on reviews, I feel it fair to warn readers that this story starts out great, with all the elements of a good book, but sadly goes downhill and the end just sort of fizzles out. There were loose ends left hanging which could have supported a strong plot had they panned out, but they simply were left unaddressed with no explanation of why they were mentioned to begin with, ie: the deleted emails. This story had a great story line and started out strong, but was not fleshed out to it's full potential. The plot twist was good and should have been expanded upon, but the story just seemed to end abruptly.

The holes in this story involve more than amnesia.

The narrator was great in that she didn't try to overdo the male voice roles. The story was thin and in most ways predictable.

Tried twice - couldn't do it.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I had two attempts at this story. Perhaps it was just too slow for me but I couldn't work up any interest in the character at all. Plus the voices were not very good. In fact, a doctor with an accent - possibly supposed to be eastern european ... had me gagging! Truly awful.<br/>This is one I will return.

Has The Girl from the Sea put you off other books in this genre?

No.

What didn’t you like about Gemma Dawson’s performance?

There didn't appear to be any empathy with the characters. Personally didn't feel she had enough range for 'voices'.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not for me it didn't.

Any additional comments?

I am pleased that Audible has a return policy.

Disappointing

This started off promisingly enough but quite quickly became predictable. I worked out what was going to happen and couldn't be bothered listening to the end. Not a big fan of the narrator either.

poor storyline

Unrealistic and poorly written, the story had many flaws and the narration was over exaggerated.
