Description

Three years ago Toni's five-year-old daughter, Evie, disappeared after leaving school. The police have never been able to find her. There were no witnesses, no CCTV, no trace.

But Toni believes her daughter is alive. And as she begins to silently piece together her memories, the full story of the past begins to reveal itself - and a devastating truth.

Toni's mind is trapped in a world of silence. Her only chance to save herself is to manage the impossible: she must find a way to make herself heard. She must find her daughter.

A compelling, gripping thriller with a breathtaking twist that will keep you awake until the early hours. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, Behind Closed Doors and The Sister.

Entertaining

Right up until the end, I enjoyed it, so I'll give 4 stars. To me, the journey is just as important as the destination, and I found that I enjoyed the story even if not the payoff so much. The end felt rushed and a little forced...like trying too hard for the big twist...only the big twist wasn't really that big. In order for the twist to work well for me, there has to be adequate foreshadowing and clues along the way for me to look back and think OMG, why didn't I see that?!!! The twists in this either came out of left field or were too obvious. One more nit, which is wrapped up with the big twist is that the villain explained themself. I hate that. It's such an overused and cliched device in mystery/thrillers that it has begun to throw me out of the story every time I come across it. I can suspend disbelief for a story if it's something fresh, but I cannot suspend disbelief that every villain always gets the opportunity to spill their guts at the moment they are caught out, giving away all of their motives and methods in one long vitriolic diatribe. I've stopped reading books at the end when it happens, it irks me so much. This particular villain's rant was so close to the very end that I went ahead and finished....which, again, the end was just so rushed and sloppy that it didn't take long. In short: worth the read if you, like me, are ok with being entertained for the duration of the story even when the end is weak.

I LOVE K.L. Slater!!

I have been listening to what I am 'hungry' for lately. Ever since I listened to my first K.L. Slater book, I have been hungry for more! LIAR actually shocked me- I honestly was clueless to how it would end- and Slater loves to confuse and surprise her readers. Blink is no exception to her pattern.

Slater's normal writing style introduces characters 'now' and 'years ago.' She writes from the beginning and the end, and solves the issues somewhere in the middle of the characters' story. The style is brilliant, and it takes the reader's (listener's) full concentration to piece things together. I love her style of writing and I daresay that she has officially become one of my favourite authors.

Blink is the story of a woman who is laying in a coma. We don't know why or how, or even who she is. The doctors are going to shut off her life support, but she can still hear them- she can't move to tell them. You'd think that would be exciting/heart racing enough of a story base, but Slater takes it 15 steps further. We learn all about what's happened to several women, from three years ago to the present- and eventually who the woman in the coma is and how she ties in with a child abduction.

This book kept me guessing. I couldn't wait to listen more. I devoured it and I loved it- this author has yet to disappoint me and I am addicted to her style.

Great narration!

This was a good mystery, very well written and the narrator is flawless. I actually think the narrator bumps up the ratings on this book. The reason I say that is because I hated the main character, I almost stopped listening because I found her whiny and difficult to sympathize with. The narrator saved me from that, she’s delightful, and toward the last quarter of the book I was glad I did. It got much better, things started to fall in place and the ending was solid. The jumping back 3 years to present just about every other chapter was difficult to keep up with and contributed to my 3 star on the storyline but others may not feel that way. Overall this is a solid 4 star book when you consider the excellent narration!

I got a lot done.

I got a lot done because it was so hard to put this book down. It's interesting, the reader is excellent, and the ending was fine. as a result, my bedroom closet is now organized and my silverware drawer has been thoroughly sanitized, and several other projects were finished. I definitely recommend this book.

I thought it would be more suspenseful.

The storyline was alright but the end seems a bit forced like the author wrote themselves into a pickle and didn't know how to properly unravel the mystery. I like the performance of the narrator. As far as mysteries go I wasn't bored, but I don't think I'd recommend.

Very Slow Moving and silly ending

This book was slow and rather confusing... The ending was ridiculous and ended very abruptly.The idea of the twist was good because it lead you away from the main characters that you would have suspected, but when the twist is explained it was silly and rather far fetching... The book itself moves painfully slow and quite boring. It had potential but the premise of the twist killed this book. The narrator does a good job. I wouldn't waste a credit on this book....

Ok . . I didnt enjoy as much as I hopes

I found I didnt bond with any of the characters and I was not gripped. I got to the end but there were no surprises or reasons as to why

To confusing, not very interesting. Wish it had started out better. I would not listen to it again, or read the book.

Well ...

The main character is so unbearably dumb and stupid, I gave up around the middle of the book. It made me actually aggressiv listening to that story.

Absolut fesselnd

Ich habe ziemlich viele Thriller gehört und dieser ist einfach hervorragend. Das Buch kommt ganz ohne brutale blutige Szenen aus und ist für mich umso packender. Ich finde es klasse, dass die Geschichte so realistisch ist im Bezug auf Manipulation von Kindern. Die Geschichte ist super aufgebaut und ich habe die ganze Zeit versucht herauszufinden welche Person es nun getan hat. Die Sprecherin macht einen guten Job und ich höre Lucy Price-Lewis sehr gern.
