I was not able to finish
Not predictable which I appreciate but some descriptions dragged and the narrator read slowly and dramatically. I listened at 1.5 and it almost sounded normal. They needed to go back to the girls perspective to tie that up after the long intro of her life and experiences with her abductors.
This was a surprisingly fantastic listen. I loved the way the author pulled it together. The ending was a shocker.
This book was good, the timeline was at times chaotic and difficult to follow. In my opinion, this book had too many peoples' perspectives which was unnecessary. Overall a good read with some interesting plot twists, but not the best domestic thriller I've read lately.
The narrative could have been less. Another listener said unrealistic in parts, agree. Which is why I fast forwarded in many parts. Lots of potential just falling short, with an interesting twist at the end.
I thought this plot was very implausible. There were too many holes in the story and the characters were not well developed. I found the story to be unbelievable.
Good, but not a 5 star book.
It too me MONTHS to finish it. Absolutely horrible writing in this book, none of it makes sense. It also bounces around in a way that makes it confusing. Then the end was the worst part. Wraps everything up in a chapter that doesn’t make sense at all.
Narration was nice, though.
Never happen in a million years.
Especially the ending.
That was not a suspenseful shocking twist!
It was ridiculous.
Go ahead. Give it a listen. You will see exactly what I mean.
Great listen. Loved the storyline!! Would recommend!!
Enjoyed this book very much.
Local Woman Missing is a book that keeps one’s attention. It is a bit confusing, however, snd the idea of a murderer looking after a child for eleven years is a bit unbelievable. There was more evil, lying, and stupidity than I could stomach!
SO good! From the moment it started I couldn’t put it down. Lots of unexpected twists. Narration was awesome. I loved it!!
badly written, completely unrealistic and convoluted narrative, gets worse towards the end. I'd like to know, in particular, what low life couple would kidnap a child and keep it 11 years in their basement with no other reason then reading about the missing girl in some local newspaper for a few weeks.
This author is new to me…unique style that draws the reader into the story immediately…great read
So many twists and turns! I loved the voices reading too. I was shocked at the ending. So good. Listened to it within 4 days!
If you like suspense this is the book for you. From the first word to the last was so good.
My jaw dropped a number of times listening to this book. Will definitely be reading again!
The story was good with surprising twists and turns , however the narration was annoying to say the least aside from the male. He was very good. The ladies were hard to listen to.
I love a book with multiple perspectives that spans timelines but it’s hard to do well. Luckily, this one did it right and with EXCELLENT narration. It’s not a reread for me, which is my threshold for a 5 star rating, but it was very very good.
Finished this in 2 days! Good twists and unpredictable
I tried but could not get very far into this book. It dragged and I kept hoping the story would pick up. I tried at 2x speed but it still took too long to get interesting.
Really good but the timeline was a little all over the place but it pulled it back together in the end
Really liked this book! Suspenseful!
I liked this book! I usually only listen to audiobooks in the car but with this one, I had it playing even while in bed. The suspense!
Love it....I can normally guess thr plot twist, but this one had me guessing until almost the very end.
great book! amazing character development and suspense. kept me up late to hear the ending. narrator was excellent too.
The ending made it worthwhile. It was an easy listen and lacked something that I can’t put my finger on.
Oh wow! Not what I expected, the turn at the end threw me for a loop.
Great listen and plot twist was not expected! That's my favorite kind. There were a few parts that were rambling...like the author needed to fill a page. But, the overall book was well worth that!
Good plot and not predictable but some parts really dragged and the narrator read too slow and dramatically. I would have liked this book better had I read it myself because it would have been a fast read. Certain parts are also disturbing and drawn out excessively. Also I would have liked to know more about the missing girl after the long intro of her life and experiences with her abductors.
I really want to know what happens, the mystery and style are amazing. But the violation descriptions are too disturbing. If you’ve ever been raped or mistreated at a pelvic exam this isn’t the read for you. It’s written too accurately and the woman’s experiences are too real/specific. I think I’ll probably wait until I shake it off and try again while skipping those parts, and hope I don’t miss too much detail.
So yeah, my criticism is that the writing is too good, I guess.
This book was great! The story has several plot twists that I didn’t see coming at all! Good listen!
Great book. Kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Not you average thriller- my predictions were wrong each and every time. Best one I’ve listened to in a while.
Loved everything about it!
Not the most "realistic" but I didn't predict the ending so I consider it a good read.
I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I enjoyed the different perceptions, the twists and turns, and I was surprised by the ending.
This book kept calling my name. I couldn’t wait to get back to it. Didn’t see it coming! 10 out 10 recommend!
I really liked this story. It was unexpected and interesting.
Wow. I loved this book. I literally could not stop listening.
Loved it, absolutely shocking ending!!!!
This was a book I couldn’t put down. Really enjoyed reading it and I liked the way it went back and forth on the time line, unique and kept my attention.
Gripping , suspenseful read with surprising twists. Loved it!
It’s okay. Jumps around too much from character to character.
Good story, surprise ending.
I was planning to have this audiobook last me a while - just listen to it while I get ready for the day or clean the house but I listened to it all less than two days. Loved it!
