I really enjoyed this - I didn’t anticipate all the twists and turns like I can with most books and I enjoyed the focus on the character development.

Couldn’t get past the main character

I can’t stand the weak, pathetic, whiny female leads who demur and defer to men/husbands and other women characters, and act so insecure as to be so unlikeable in so many of these books - I couldn’t get past the first chapter despite multiple attempts. Had to return it.

Just ok

I really enjoyed the first 1/3 of the book - especially insight or exploring being the child and victim of a serial killer/abusive mother - but no way ever would a psychologist have a client live with them and treat them in the same home , and the ending just seemed undeveloped and sudden and completely far fetched too.

Imogen is amazing and incredible and was the reason I chose this for my read as I love her performances. She’s likely the only reason I continued on.

Surprised by how much I enjoyed it

I’d read lots of reviews from folks thoroughly disappointed with this one - I’ve listened to all of the others from Ruth Ware, and I absolutely LOVE Imogen Church (so much that I’m now finding books read/performed by her as my new selection criteria haha) so I wanted to give it a go. And I really enjoyed The Lying Game - the characters, the story (sure the regular flaws but not so bad, and a twist at the end that I didn’t foresee). I enjoyed it more so and than the Woman In Cabin 10, which has become my least fav of the 4.

I really enjoyed this latest from Ruth Ware - my fav of hers so far. I thought I had it figured it out, but I only had it figured out in part and the final twist was sooo awesome to the story!

Had to turn it off - so not good

I read all the reviews and thought this was pretty darn safe but oh my goodness. Nobody would do the things these people are doing- it wasn’t even laughable or enjoyable to let me suspend my disbelief and just go with it, but so unbelievable that I had to turn it off; it was just so ridiculous. The narrator was lovely to listen to - being an author and actor (downtown abbey) - she did a great job - just I could not get past how absolutely ludicrous the plot line.
