Good story...

This was very good but I think I need to listen to it again. I was a bit confused about 2/3 in. This was my first book from this author. Will read more. As always IMOGEN CHURCH was BRILLIANT.

Great story, sound editing not good

I really enjoyed the story and I adore Imogen Church, she is my favorite. While listening to the story the volume would dip way down when there were low tones or whispers and then go up. I kept having to replay parts because I missed what was being said. I attribute this to the sound editing not the performer, I'd listen again if this were fixed.

I Endured to the End

The best thing about this weird story is the narrator. I’m absolutely certain I would have quit half way through the print edition. It starts out quite well, and moves along at an intriguing pace for a few hours, with characters and relationships developing nicely, with a current of creepiness that kept me hooked. Not sure when it loses momentum, as it’s gradual. The last third of the book was tedious; I no longer cared about the protagonist, or what might happen next. I just turned it on at bedtime to let Imogen’s lovely voice send me to sleep, as I had too much going on at the moment to start a new audiobook. I’m giving the story two stars because it did start out well, and the premise is unique. Imogen’s narration nudges my overall rating up to three. Quite honestly though, I’m going to return it because I know I’ll never want to listen to it again. Perhaps you won’t be as bored and disheartened as I was by the convoluted detours; I see that some reviewers loved it.

Story didn't go where I thought

As always, I LOVE Imogen Church's performance. The story was okay. I liked that it switched from past to present. The mystery of what happened in the past that lead her to the present self was intriguing. However, the ending left me feeling disappointed. It was still a good story but not what I expected with a title of I Spy. I didn't understand the involvement with MI5 and felt it could have gone further into that aspect of the story. Instead it was about a love triangle and a baby.

Riveting!

Had me anticipating every word as if I were right there! Although the female narrator's voice as the husband got a little annoying towards the end.

Better than expected...

Very respectable 4 star listen...not your typical “thriller.” A complex plot with plenty of twists and turns, with a rather satisfying ending.
