Why did the story have to come to end so quickly? I was just getting into it and suddenly it was over. 😭 What a wonderful performance by the reader and a wonderful story by the author. This is my first book by the author and I am going to download a new one RIGHT NOW!

...errr I meant listened to. I loved it. I kept on thinking about the book when I wasn't listening to it and looking forward to when I would be able to continue. At times I would try to listen at work but then I would just stop because I always got interrupted and it annoyed me. I needed to better concentrate and listen again, when I was alone. That's how much I was into this book! 😂

I absolutely love the way the book was read, she made the characters so real and so interesting. And she has a really lovely voice! Easy on the ears and I do love British accents, so that's a plus for me. About the story: I swear, she had me fooled the whole time...I always thought it was going to end differently. Great story. what are you waiting for? DOWNLOAD IT NOW and start listening. If you like suspense and a good juicy plot twist, then you won't regret it. I will never think of Bora Bora the same way again.

After I finished the last book of The Raven Cycle series, by Maggie Stiefvater, I wanted to continue my exploration with young adult books. I got the recommendation for this book by chance and I decided to buy it and listen to it.

• personally, the narrator's voice did absolutely nothing for me. Shrill in some places, which I suppose has something to do with acting out scenes in the book
• Because of this, I found myself really irritated and annoyed at times
• sometimes I felt like it was a tad too much "acting " for me (eye roll)
• I felt like there was way more intrigue in Maggie's characters, I didn't relate to these as much as I would have liked too
• there is so much maaaagic in Maggie's books and mind you, I am not a young adult anymore BUT I absolutely enjoy her books

Long story short, I was foolish to have such high expectations after reading such wonderful books by Maggie Stiefvater and I would not recommend this book to a friend.

Would I recommend this book to someone who loves reading? No. It would probably be the last book on my mind when it comes to that. I guess the idea behind it, isn't too bad but I feel like that extra bit is missing to make it unforgettable. I think the word I am looking for is "mellow" to describe my feelings towards the book.

I wish that I would have tried another book to be honest, because I had an inkling quite early in the story already, what the end game was going to be...and that to me, is not a good story. maybe I have read too many thrillers already but *sigh*...

So I am not going to write a long review because personally, I prefer it short and sweet. If you have read books like "Girl on the train" or Stephen King's newest book than don't bother reading this unless your a big fan or have no reading experience at all. maybe it'll blow you away if you're a first time reader. 😉 But it just didn't do it for me although I did like the character Sophie quite a bit.

some of the reviews made this book seem so promising and I am quite disappointed to be honest. I knew who did it towards the end. This book just didn't do it for me.

The storyline is good and was read really well but I feel like there is not enough suspense. There are some creepy stuff happening in this book but nothing that left me in awe. I had an idea quite early on who was guilty and though it was still exciting to listen to at the end, I have to admit I was a bit disappointed. I just expected so much more because of the way the book was described and because of the other book "Gone girl". My verdict, buy and read it if you're a fan but it's not one of the best books I have ever read.

I couldn't put my phone down!

This is the first audio book I finished within just days of purchasing it. Sometimes I find my mind wandering when I listen to books but this story left me wanting more, even long after I had finished with it. And funnily enough, I even felt sad when the story came to an end.

I absolutely adore King but even I will admit that sometimes, he likes to take his time with the build-up, which can become tedious. However, with this book I feel like King has outdone himself again.

The characters not only arouse your interest but also keep it during the whole story. I felt like I was personally involved in their lives. I drew my own conclusions, I chose sides, had opinions, felt angry, upset and even heartbroken. I actually felt like I knew them in person. Yet King reveals nothing, keeping you in suspense, making you question your opinions, thoughts and feelings, as you delve deeper into his world. You will not be bored for one moment!

It may not be the most original story but it's enthralling, eccentric, mysterious and exciting with a hint of King, just the way I like it.

The narrator has a great voice and portrays the characters and story amazingly well. I would definitively love to listen to him again. So very pleased that I purchased this book.☺

I read that somewhere that it was a bestseller but I sometimes wonder when listening to a book, wether it would have been different, had I actually bought a hardcover. But this book evoked so many emotions in me. Beautifully written and superbly written. Now I know why I fell in love with Karen Rose' s stories to begin with.
