'Hypnotically readable-I absolutely couldn't put it down. The structure is brilliant, and I turned the pages with increasing dread. This book is terrific.'-Stephen King

Hannah was the kind of woman who turned heads. Tall and graceful, naturally pretty, often impulsive, always spirited, the upper class girl who picked, of all men, Lovell-the introverted climate scientist, the practical one who thought he could change the world if he could just get everyone to listen to reason. After a magical honeymoon they settled in the suburbs to raise their two children. But over the years, Lovell and Hannah's conversations have become charged with resentments and unspoken desires. She's become withdrawn and directionless. His work affords him a convenient distraction. The children can sense the tension, which they've learned to mostly ignore. Until, after one explosive argument, Hannah vanishes. And Lovell, for the first time, is forced to examine the trajectory of his marriage through the lens of memory-and the eyes of his children. As he tries to piece together what happened to his wife-and to their lives together-listeners follow Hannah through that single day when the smallest of decisions takes her to places she never intended to go.

Meh. You pretty much know what has happened from the second chapter. If Stephen King found this “unput-down-able,“ he needs to find better books to read. I suppose I could say this gives a more up close look at what a family might experience when someone goes missing – – though I must say it seemed entirely unrealistic according to any family I’ve ever known. The character of the husband is quite well drawn and perhaps that’s the best thing about the book. Otherwise, meh. The themes of the vagaries of marriage have been done and done and done again.

I found the narrator very annoying and it took away from the story for me.

Not realistic and why write that story?

Fairly predictable book. I found the narrator’s imitation of a male voice distracting and silly.

I was really hoping for better. There’s not much to say about this book.
