Publisher's Summary

When reclusive novelist Senna Richards wakes up on her 33rd birthday, everything has changed. Caged behind an electrical fence, locked in a house in the middle of the snow, Senna is left to decode the clues to find out why she was taken. If she wants her freedom, she has to take a close look at her past. But, her past has a heartbeat... and her kidnapper is nowhere to be found. With her survival hanging by a thread, Senna soon realizes this is a game. A dangerous one. Only the truth can set her free.

Waste of credit.

This book was one exhausting journey to a disappointing conclusion. The plot dragged on with only the suspense of who the ' zookeeper' could possibly be. The topics are heavy but I found myself not connecting or liking the lead character Senna. She is unnecessarily annoying and some plot aspects made no sense in explaining why she was so rude and annoying. The story ended with a ridiculous weaving of shallow explanations. Hated this book. Loved other works by this author and narrator (great performance) was the only reason why I muddled through it until the end.

Raw

Jesus Christ. This was a very well thought out and thorough novel. The writing is out of this world amazing. I have to say, if you are looking for something that is optimistic and makes you feel good, look the other way. Well, I guess it could be considered optimistic, but in a really morbid way.. This book is so honest and raw it will tear your heart out. Then whack it against the wall a few times. I feel a little traumatized.. But in the best possible way. ;)

The narrator was great as usual. She effortlessly brings the story to life.

Definitely worth the credit!

Not For Shallow People

NO SPOILERS!! This book is all heart. It’s a very deep, dark, yet hopeful story. Totally raw, honest and I couldn’t put it down. I read it in one sitting. It is thought provoking, dark, mysterious and worth your time if you enjoy psychological thrillers.

I loved this book!

This book is twisted from the very beginning. I loved it and found myself glued to my chair listening to it.

Cenna doesn't let anyone close to her. Christmas is the worst time of year for her as everything bad happens on Christmas. Now Cenna and a Doctor she has becomes friends with have been kidnapped.

This is my very first read by the author, Taryn Fisher. I enjoyed this book so much and found the plot to be very original. It is sick, twisted and it held me captive too. I just couldn't walk away from this book! The narrator, Simone Lewis is fantastic also. I loved the accents and multiple voices she used, along with the emotions in the narration!

Avoid if suffering from depression!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

In the beginning it held me in suspense wondering where it was headed..(a lot of flashbacks without full explanations) cold, clinical, no warmth by the end it was a fizzle for me with not much of a twist. I was expecting more depth to the characters & an emotional bond to them, I didn't feel it.. Without trying not to give anything away, my heading states it all! If you're looking for an emotional love story there wasn't one for me. It is not a dark book, just depressing!

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Would not have given it such a depressing ending!

What does Simone Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Simone although didn't differentiate from male to female, as the female part could not fault her & was able to get through the book thanks to Simone's narration!

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No!

Any additional comments?

Sad to say was expecting more.. got less!

What about Simone Lewis’s performance did you like?

She was great! She conveyed the characters emotions very well.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I felt extreme sadness at the end.

Any additional comments?


Tarryn Fisher is a master storyteller! This was a very disturbing but at the same time compelling story. I was riveted the whole way through. I felt the emotions the characters were feeling which in my book is a sign of a Master of words!

Brilliant, mind-blowing, and thought-inducing

This was the very first book by this author that I've ever read, but it won't be the last. A perfectly executed self-discovery and acceptance story.

Absolutely a 5 Star Compelling Achievement

This has to be one of the most well narrated and well written books I have read in a very very long time. There are so many elements to this storyline that everyone of us can relate to, whether the struggle, pain, loss or victory over those things and ourselves. This story leads you through such a journey with and amazing understanding of the fight we all face.

I believe this is the best book I have read/listened to in a very long time!!!

What did you like best about this story?

I loved that it kept me guessing , and just when I thought I figured it out there was another twist!!!

What about Simone Lewis’s performance did you like?

Simone Lewis is the best narrator I have heard. Her inflections are always on point, the emotions match her tone, and it seems she becomes the character!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted to, but it is a 10 hour book so I had to listen to it in two days.
