Description

In the summer of 1999, Kit and Laura travel to a festival in Cornwall to see a total eclipse of the sun. Kit is an eclipse chaser; Laura has never seen one before. Young and in love, they are certain this will be the first of many they'll share.

But in the hushed moments after the shadow passes, Laura interrupts a man and a woman. She knows that she saw something terrible. The man denies it. It is her word against his.

The victim seems grateful. Months later she turns up on their doorstep like a lonely stray. But as her gratitude takes a twisted turn, Laura begins to wonder - did she trust the wrong person?

Fifteen years later, Kit and Laura married are living under new names and completely off the digital grid: no Facebook, only rudimentary cell phones, not in any directories. But as the truth catches up to them, they realize they can no longer keep the past in the past.

From Erin Kelly, queen of the killer twist, He Said/She Said is a gripping tale of the lies we tell to save ourselves, the truths we cannot admit, and how far we will go to make others believe our side of the story.

Critiques

"A tour de force - a gripping, twisting, furiously clever read that asks all the right questions, and keeps you guessing until the very end. I loved it." (Ruth Ware, best-selling author of The Woman in Cabin 10)

"The dual narrators, Helen Johns and Jonathan Broadbent...are versatile in tone and theatrically fitting as the drama of the story builds to its climax." (AudioFile)

"Haunting. Mesmerizing. Unforgettable." (Gillian Flynn)

Narration ok but could not finish the book

What disappointed you about He Said/She Said?

It was so boring. DNF at 30%, It was all about eclipses and little else

What was most disappointing about Erin Kelly’s story?

It was boring, I couldn't finish it. I didn't buy it to learn about eclipses. I don't know how it got categorized as a thriller.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Both narrators were okay. The female was better but the male was not bad.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

You've Got To Be Kidding Me

This book has such an idiotic circular plot and makes absolutely no sense to me at all. The characters are completely impossible to relate to. Four hours to go and I can't stand one more minute of this nonsense. The only mystery for me is why the characters would do anything they have done up until this point. Further, if this is the state of what publishers consider worth while current fiction I give up.

Not Good

First few hours were incredibly slow with lots of backstory and very little anticipation or preview of the thriller this is supposed to be. There's a "twist" but it's unbelievable and honestly the story line that should propel the mystery left me with much to be desired. This was my last credit and so I hung in there...wouldn't recommend it unless it's on sale.

No There There

What disappointed you about He Said/She Said?

The story (zero), the people are wimps. Waste of my time

What could Erin Kelly have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Nothing

What didn’t you like about Jonathan Broadbent and Helen Johns ’s performance?

Helen John's voice always quavered-maybe right for the character but couldn't stand it.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from He Said/She Said?

The entire book.

Huh

I couldn’t even get past the first hour due to the horrible robotic voices narrating the book. No idea what it’s about.

Not my favorite

Story got better toward the end, but ended rather abruptly. Felt like so much work up for not a huge reward

Loved it!

What did you love best about He Said/She Said?

To be completely honest, I thought this book had some pretty serious lulls and the beginning was a little confusing to me. BUT I love books that go back and forth in time, so i stuck with it. I am soooo glad I did! Although there were some boring parts to this book and it did seem to drone on a bit, those parts were not wasted, it weaved an interesting and compelling storyline that all came together in the end. Lots of twists here. Don't give up on this book!

Unfortunately flawed

I thought the performers were terrific and the writing itself interesting and well done. The problem was with the story. I found the story to be implausible and artificial. Events that were known to the characters early on were not disclosed until way later, making the flow seem dislocated and unbelievable. I had to repeat some passages several times before I could put it all together.
I loved all the British expressions and terminology. I still wondering what some of them mean.

So much potential that fell short.

I wanted to like this book so much. I feel that it became completely predictable and I found myself so bored and just wanting it to end.

Narration was the only part saving me from turning it off after chapter 5.

Kept my attention, but a bit too soapy

I read the other Erin Kelly books - which I enjoyed - but somehow, this one was just too much like a soap/serial that went on and on. That can be great if you are into that, but perhaps I've just heard too many great great books to be into this type of story. Pretty much - the book follows a pattern - one chapter its from his perspective, the next is from hers. Its a great concept, but thought his side of the story wasnt fully told until the very end. (whereas, hers was told basically in even bits throughout). Plus the ending seemed to be unrealistic given that these people were supposedly soulmates. Again, that's my own prejudice showing through here, but if I were her, I would not have chosen to do what she did in the end. Trying to avoid writing a spoiler review. Bottom line, if you are over 40, and not into 'girl power'-type stories, read a different book by Erin Kelly.

Perfekt gewählter Titel, spannend

Ein spannendes Hörbuch mit tollen Sprechern und einer ungewöhnlichen Geschichte, die mich gepackt hat. Der Titel ist perfekt gewählt - aus zwei Perspektiven werden die Ereignisse von heute und ihren Ursprüngen 15 Jahre zuvor erzählt - jeder hat hier etwas zu verbergen und kleine Lügen können über Jahre fürchterliche Auswirkungen haben. Lange weiß der Hörer nicht, was sich wirklich zugetragen hat! Es ist zwar manchmal etwas extrem, aber während des Hörens war ich trotzdem gefesselt. Sicher auch durch die tolle Stimme von Laura! Nur das Ende hätte ich mit anders gewünscht. Aber es passt!
