Inhaltsangabe

How much can you trust your friends?

The text message is just three words: I need you.

Isa Leigh drops everything, packs up her baby daughter and heads straight to Salten, where she and her three best friends attended prestigious boarding school Salten House. Only Kate still lives in the area, at the crumbling Tide Mill she inherited when her disgraced art tutor father vanished when she was just 17.

Each of the women is running from something, from an act that has haunted them for many years but which they have tried their best to bury: in work, in alcohol, in family, faith and routine. At school together, the girls used to play a game - the lying game - in which they competed to tell the most outrageous stories to fool tourists. But for some, did the boundaries between fact and fantasy become too blurred? And how much can you trust one another?

Fantastic

I love this audiobook.
Usually I am not the hugest fan of female voices when it comes to audiobooks but Imogen Church's voice is incredible. She can imitate the different voices perfectly.
The story is sometimes a bit predictable but still it is with suspense and beautifully written.
This audiobook is perfect for those who love to immerse themselves in stories and empathize with the characters.

Boring Story and annoying characters

This audiobook is only worth listening to if you just gave birth or are somehow obsessed with babies. The main character's Baby, Freya, is mentioned every 5 minutes for no apparent reason. There are Long passages describing the breastfeeding, suckeling, gurgeling noises and whatever else it is babies do. Nothing ever happens to the the Baby though and it is not clear to me why she was introduced as a character at all. Other than that, the mystery is easy to figure out and the "big secret" isn't that big. All characters are one-dimensional and boring. Not worth your time.

sehr spannende Geschichte

Die Geschichte ist sehr spannend erzählt.
Immer wieder gibt es Überraschungen.
Der Sprecherin gelingt es hervorragende die einzelnen Charaktere der Geschichte lebendig werden zu lassen =Gefühle und Stimmungen zu transportieren

Utterly boring

No real plot, no suspense, lots of repetition
Main character is a 6 month old baby and her mother, and that’s all there is to be said about this utterly boring book

Wundervoll gesprochen!!!

Wieder eine ungewöhnliche Geschichte, toll gesprochen. Ich bin in den Sog gezogen worden, der von dieser Vierer Freundschaft ausgeht. In vielen Momente dachte ich: ja, So fühlt man mit 15, 16... und so mit 32. einziger Kritikpunkt : Ruth Ware hat keine Ahnung, was Babys mit 6 Monaten können bzw. Nicht und vor allem wie man als junge Mutter von seinem Kind erfüllt ist - da wäre im echten Leben kaum Platz für die alten Freunde....
