Description

A Nearly Normal Family is the stunning psychological thriller from M. T. Edvardsson and asks what would you do if your child was suspected of murder, how far would you go to protect them? Do you want to know the truth? If you loved A. J. Finn’s The Woman in the Window or J. P. Delaney’s The Girl Before, you will love this.

Every murder case starts with a suspect. What if the suspect is your daughter? Would you believe her or the evidence against her?

The father 

Believes his daughter has been framed.

The mother 

Believes she is hiding something.

The daughter 

Believes they have no idea what she’s truly capable of....

There are three sides to the story. And the truth will shatter this family to pieces.

Commentaires

"It is only fitting that a story about a family told in three parts should involve more than one narrator. Emily Watson, Georgia Maguire, and Richard Armitage complement each other's depictions of a dysfunctional household that is hiding secrets. Armitage opens the story with a strong interpretation of Adam's views on his family and his faith, emphasizing the strict hold he has on his daughter. Watson and Maguire pair well together, voicing a mother and daughter who are parallel in tone yet befitting and distinctive. These narrators embody a family that is not so normal after all."

Riveting Psychological Thriller

Highly recommended.

I found 'A Nearly Normal Family' because the NYT recommended it as one of the best summer reads. I wasn't disappointed. As a parent, it's a chilling read. We think we know our kids and we believe our lives are normal, but truth is subjective, isn't it? Loved the story. And the narration is excellent.

Rather slow moving

On the positive side this is a believable story with credible characters, many of whom are unlikeable! The slow revelation of each character’s personality is well done. The author manages to swing our sympathies by presenting each character’s point of view in different chapters. However I found it extremely slow moving, and increased the narration speed to 2x.
The narrators are excellent, with the exception of the female narrator’s odd pronunciation of ‘book’ as ‘berk’ and ‘good’ as ‘gerd’.

A little involved, but worth a listen

The story develops slowly, and the fact that the reader gets the three perspectives one after the other makes sense. This way, tension is upheld, and the plot unravels step by step. The characters are convincing on the whole (bar a few exceptions), their stories are driving the plot forward. I found the end just a bit complicated, and the way the mother acted a little over the top and unconvincing. It makes for drama, that's for sure, but would any mother act that way?
On the whole to be recommended for an entertaining listen.

Took a while to kick in

Amazing unpredicted twists and turns, solution doesn't reveal itself until the very end. CV vgh
