Nice light listen, full of fun. I laughed out loud several times. Just what you need when you want something easy. And although I knew what the outcome would be, the story takes you through enough turns that at times your not sure.

So completely disappointing!

I was looking so forward to this book. As a big Stephen King fan, I really enjoyed Mr. Mercedes. Although slightly different than his usual writing it still had that Stephen King flavour and kept you on the edge of your seat. THIS book, had absolutely no Stephen King feel and was so boring! I kept persevering through thinking something would change but it stayed boring. More than half felt like just descriptions of child abuse with flimsy reasoning for it. The only good I can give it, is the narrator was good. I can’t recommend at all. Don’t use a credit on this.

Do not miss this one! I never saw the twists coming and I didn’t guess the end at all. Terrific read or listen. I also really enjoyed the narrator. Well done on all levels!

So exciting! I couldn’t put it down. Each chapter had me on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. If you enjoy psychological thrillers you will definitely enjoy this one.

Highly Recommend!

Great story, well thought out. So close to what our reality could actually turn into. A great conversation starter. I will recommend this book to my winter book club.

What started out as a good interesting story morphed into something strange and unenjoyable. Too much foul language that was unnecessary. And then scenes, like the rape one where I just thought it added no value to the story and frankly didn’t make any sense for the story line of the pastor.

This novel definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. At times I didn’t want to stop listening. The only disappointment was the very end. Which is why I gave 4 instead of 5 stars. It just kind of fell flat at the end but otherwise a good read. Plenty of surprising moments and shows the complexities of our emotions as we as children grow through any kind of traumas and as an adult how things are not so black and white.

Gets better in the second half

I’m glad I stuck to it because the second half is a lot better than the first. Overall not Moore’s best work but some good laughs.

Excellent!

I enjoyed this story so much I ended up listening late into the night 3 nights to finish it. The right amount of excitement and humour mixed with adventure. You don’t have to be a science geek to enjoy either.

Fun and light story. A bit predictable but that’s part of the allure of a romantic comedy. We know there will be a happy ending but we enjoy the ride.
