Description

This wonderfully perceptive new audiobook is about the lines we'll cross for love. It's about the murky areas between right and wrong, and the complexities of modern relationships.

The Hypnotist's Love Story is about the mild craziness that lurks behind the facades we present to the world, especially when it comes to love.

Ellen O'Farrell is an expert when it comes to human frailties. She's a hypnotherapist who helps her clients deal with everything from addictions to life-long phobias. So when she falls in love with a man who is being stalked by his ex-girlfriend she's more intrigued than frightened. What makes a supposedly smart, professional woman behave this way? She'd love to meet her!

What she doesn't know is that she already has. Saskia has been masquerading as a client, and their lives are set to collide in ways Ellen could never have predicted.

Entrancing, mind- shifting!

What made the experience of listening to The Hypnotist's Love Story the most enjoyable?

The character development is exquisite and I came to love all the main characters even the "bad" ones. Such a balanced view on each drew me into each twist and turn and finding myself with divided loyalty.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved both leading ladies actually, but it think the hypnotherapist wins out.

What does Caroline Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Caroline Lee allows one to savour the beautiful, lyrical nature of the writing and fully absorb the characters without rushing to keep up with the action.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending was realistic and yet serendipitous, love those endings.

Very enjoyable

Liane Moriarty is one of my favourite authors. Her characters are believable with understandable moods, motivations, and actions. They are real people who find themselves dealing with an unusual situation. Caroline Lee's narration is pragmatic and well paced so she is a perfect match for the book. The story line is quirky and interesting. It may not be gripping but the story develops at a good pace so it is always easy to listen to. I smiled and laughed as I listened and felt sad but satisfied when it ended.

Marvellously original characters

Ellen, the central character of this delightful, funny and elegant story, is refreshingly different. Caught in a relentless self-awareness that therapists must find so hard to shrug off, she is charming, disarming and sometimes very funny. Here are people who, like so many of us, try to live good and careful lives, but run adrift without really knowing why. But Ellen collects herself and presses on, finding a way through with her mix of philosophy, restraint and willingness. The very wholesomeness of her expectations keeps us taught with fear of their failure.
The stalker in this story, Ellen's opposite, is skilfully and compassionately drawn and remarkably real and familiar to us as readers. Who among us has not been at least some way down the path of the stalker? We are taken into her world of pain and injustice but not left to find our own way out.
Many levels of emotion, humour and philosophical exploration in this clean, gracious story,

Quite boring

I cannot recommend this book. It is childish and boring. The characters mind set is psychological off and monotonous

This was truly boring

I waited for the book to start, but it never did. Then it ended. Thankfully.

Interesting save the repeated self-talk

If you could sum up The Hypnotist's Love Story in three words, what would they be?

The human condition

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hypnotist's Love Story?

The moment the stalker ex is in their bedroom. She is hard to sympathize with until you get the whole picture.

Have you listened to any of Caroline Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The fact we are in the minds of more than one character means we are seeing the world through their own lens - a good approach for this type of story. The truth is there are different perspectives on love, loss, and life and even on the reasons there is a relationship struggle. Each character's lens differs from that of another player when describing the same event. It allows us to do what we are loath to do: consider all sides of an issue we may be facing too.

It is a book about family, how precious family history is within the context of community. It is also about the impact and longevity of the written word

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Nothing - she is fantastic. My only problem was that the book I listened to before this one was also narrated by her, but the shift to a different story did not cause concerns, attesting to her strength of characterizations.

Any additional comments?

This is a story for someone wanting to reflect on the promises we make and break in relationships, and how a loss of a partner can leave the survivor with a sense of responsibility all out of proportion. Or does it? It asks some tough questions and even answers some of them. It is a book worth exploring in a book club or with those willing to reflect on these characters and life more generally.

Good But too long

I liked the theme but really got bored w the over-long stuff in the middle. Just not necessary. Total of 28 chapters where the first ten and last four are required. Rest absolutely not needed.

Long-winded and without a plot

This story is a far cry from 'What Alice forgot' (a great story, funny and witty), 'The Husband's Secret' (less funny and witty, but still not bad), and 'Nine Perfect Strangers' (with a good idea at the start, that then turns into a weird, surreal story): there is no real plot, it's like a never-ending story with a happy ending (and they lived happily ever after haha!). I was half way through listening when I expected the story to finish, but - surprise - it didn't, it continued as if the author was not sure about when to stop, and kept adding bits and pieces. Caroline Lee reads the story very well, but that does not make up for the total lack of suspense, fun, and plot. No need to add that this kind of sweet fairy tale where everybody is happy at the end and they all get what they deserve is totally out of sync with modern fiction. If Liane Moriarty now publishes this kind of fiction, I will refrain from listening to/reading her stories.

Eine wahre Lebensgeschichte. Spannend und dennoch herzerwärmend.

Ich kann es einfach nicht anders beschreiben- ein Buch von dieser Sorte kann man nicht einfach aus der Hand legen- in diesem Fall die Audiowiedergabe stoppen. Ich habe mein Wochenende damit verbracht und am Sonntag als es fertig war ging es mir als ob ich einen guten Freund verabschiedet hätte. Ich war sehr traurig. Liane Moriarty ist meine Lieblingsauthorin! Die Geschichte ist das Leben und so wunderschön erzählt, dass es kein bisschen langweilig ist- ganz im Gegenteil. Man entdeckt so viele Gemeinsamkeiten mit den Charakteren und lacht über deren/eigene Selbsterkenntnis, dass es einem schon komisch vorkommt. Aber das genau macht das Buch zu einem Freund. Ich liebe es!

Mal was anderes

Es war interessant, etwas über Hypnose zu erfahren. Die Story war ganz gut. Kann man empfehlen.
