You know you're reading a clunker when the bad guy is more likeable than the protagonist or even the children portrayed in the book. The premise is far-fetched (when Eddie reappears in Nora's life, why wouldn't she call the police?) The main characters are spoiled and self-centered - making it hard to feel sympathetic toward them.
The narrator's reading of the teenaged girl's character (and the small child Lira) is like nails on a chalkboard, whiny and wheedling. Also, way too overwrought when she's reading charged dialogue. Listening to this is a chore.
