A little slow at first, but very good ending! Keep me guessing up to the last disk, didn't want it to end wanted to know more!
Storytelling at its very best. Haunting and mesmerizing, this book wouldn't let me go.
This was a double treat for me. I loved the story and the writing was absolutely beautiful. And the women who told the story did so in such a mesmerizing way. I listen to audio books on my commute. With this story, I wanted to continue to drive so I could hear more. I would highly recommend this audiobook. In fact, I'm going to go out and buy the actual book, so I can go back and reread it.
Very engaging story. Loved the narrators. Worth renting.
Great book. I couldn't wait to listen every chance I could get.
Haunting style of writing. I found it off-putting for the first hour of the CDs, then I was drawn in to the style. Loved it eventually. I figured out the "twist" about a chapter or two before it was revealed, but it didn't detract from the ending at all. Very clever story with some really interesting characters.
I have been telling everyone about this story. I loved it, it was such a great story and told very well. I even order the actual book because there were so many things I wanted to go back and read over again. Recommend highly.
I loved this book. It was a little slow to get started but once the story got going it was hard to get out of the car because I wanted to keep listening. It is a good mystery book
This book is very well written and the Narrators are great. I found myself driving around the block because I just couldn't wait to find out what happens next. You will not be disappointed by this smart, intriguing novel.
I adored this book. Having read books like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights as a teen, I was totally captivated by this book. I loved the gothic atmosphere, and though it started out a bit slow, the writing was so beautifully crafted that it kept me interested. The plot is very clever and Ms. Sutterfield ties up pretty much all the loose ends believably. This is the best book--very mysterious and involving. I can't wait for her next book that is coming out this year I think.
