Only the narrative thrilled me in this story of two families who each drag their utter dysfunction on a home exchange holiday. The story is so dismal, the male characters so unrelentingly awful, the mother figures so utterly oblivious and the children such victims of adult dysfunction, that I thought Twisted River was a satire during the first few chapters. While I wouldn't say it's not satire, I can say the novel is neither a mystery nor a thriller; it's a story about awful people doing awful things to other people.
Still, I listened to the end. It is a superb production; extraordinarily well presented with 4 perfectly cast narrators. I will seek out audio books from this production company.

Well written, but not the story I was expecting. I thought it would be more mysterious, dark, keep me guessing, etc., but that didn't really happen. Disappointed overall.
