Inhaltsangabe

Named a New York Times notable book of 2018 and a best book of 2018 by The Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, Elle, Slate, Vulture, Vox, Bustle, Real Simple, The Los Angeles Review of Books, and Electric Literature.

“French’s best book.... Her most intricately nuanced novel yet.” (The New York Times)

A brilliant new work of suspense from "the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years." (Washington Post

From the writer who "inspires cultic devotion in readers" (The New Yorker) and has been called "incandescent" by Stephen King, "absolutely mesmerizing" by Gillian Flynn, and "unputdownable" (People), comes a gripping new novel that turns a crime story inside out.  

Toby is a happy-go-lucky charmer who's dodged a scrape at work and is celebrating with friends when the night takes a turn that will change his life - he surprises two burglars who beat him and leave him for dead. Struggling to recover from his injuries, beginning to understand that he might never be the same man again, he takes refuge at his family's ancestral home to care for his dying uncle Hugo. Then a skull is found in the trunk of an elm tree in the garden - and as detectives close in, Toby is forced to face the possibility that his past may not be what he has always believed.  

A spellbinding standalone from one of the best suspense writers working today, The Witch Elm asks what we become, and what we're capable of, when we no longer know who we are.

My least favorite book of this author so far

I usually love her books because of the captivating mystery, but at one point I just didn't care anymore and had a hard time finishing it. It starts out very interesting but towards the end, there was just too much piled on top.

Sometimes like chewing gum

The story could be told in half the time... Maybe then you won't be bored.

Alles in allem doch noch spannend

Die ersten 2h sind irgendwie langweilig. Einzig die nicht zu erwartenden Wendungen in der Story machen das Hoerbuch dann doch noch spannend.
Der Sprecher ist allerdings super.
