I didn't enjoy this book.
The protagonist was not very likeable and she spends the entire story telling us how tired she is... over and over. I'm disappointed because I liked the author's last book, and although I think the narrator is outstanding ( based on this book and many others ) I think some may confuse their dislike for her with the character herself. I don't 't recommend this book

I bought this book because I 'sort of' enjoyed Ruth Ware's last book. For more info on that read my review of her book In A Dark, Dark Wood.
I think overall she's a good writer and I enjoy her writing style quite a bit. This book is similar in style and pace and it's exciting and keeps you guessing. Unfortunately, as in her previous book, the main character does a good bit of melodramatic whining. I'm not sure if this component of the character's personality was part of the point of the story. I suppose it provides a contrast for her eventual transformation, but it was so grating I almost stopped listening. Thankfully the whining factor diminishes in the last quarter of the book.
I'm glad I kept listening because I really enjoyed the story and the ending. It's not a great book, but I think it's pretty solid and was worth the credit.
The narration is well done.
