    Description

    A 2022 Audie Award Finalist

    The instant #1 New York Times bestselling mystery and Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick that’s captivated more than a million readers about a woman searching for the truth about her husband’s disappearance…at any cost.

    “A fast-moving, heartfelt thriller about the sacrifices we make for the people we love most.” —Real Simple

    Before Owen Michaels disappears, he smuggles a note to his beloved wife of one year: Protect her. Despite her confusion and fear, Hannah Hall knows exactly to whom the note refers—Owen’s sixteen-year-old daughter, Bailey. Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child. Bailey, who wants absolutely nothing to do with her new stepmother.

    As Hannah’s increasingly desperate calls to Owen go unanswered, as the FBI arrests Owen’s boss, as a US marshal and federal agents arrive at her Sausalito home unannounced, Hannah quickly realizes her husband isn’t who he said he was. And that Bailey just may hold the key to figuring out Owen’s true identity—and why he really disappeared.

    Hannah and Bailey set out to discover the truth. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen’s past, they soon realize they’re also building a new future—one neither of them could have anticipated.

    With its breakneck pacing, dizzying plot twists, and evocative family drama, The Last Thing He Told Me is a riveting mystery, certain to shock you with its final, heartbreaking turn.

    "Rebecca Lowman's methodical performance will hook listeners until the very end of this contemporary mystery. Hannah wakes up one day to find her husband of one year, Owen, has vanished, leaving her a puzzling note: 'Protect her.' Hannah assumes that 'her' refers to Owen's teenage daughter, Bailey, who has despised Hannah from day one. While this is a typical story of two individuals who are at odds being forced to work together, Lowman's portrayals of the characters and the mystery surrounding Owen's secret life will intrigue listeners."

    Confused

    I don't underetand all the high ratings for this one. The narrator did an excellent job, but the story was preposterous. There were too many plot holes, unexplained threads, and convenient revelations that seemed forced on the listener rather than developing organically.

    The worst book I have ever heard

    I have read and listened to some pretty terrible books. This was by far the worst book I’ve ever listened to in my logs. Legitimately so bad. The plot holes, the terrible characters, the fact that the whole story and the ending did not make a bit of sense? Why are there so many good reviews? Did everyone listen to a different book?? I cannot wrap my mind around how bad this book is.

    It was going so good....

    First 1/3 of the novel = “This is so good, I’m glad I tried it!” Second 1/3 of the novel = “Ok, this sounds like the author had to create an abrupt plot twist because she realized her deadline was looking, but I’d still recommend the book.” Last 1/3 of the novel = “This is utterly ridiculous and annoying and honestly, don’t waste the credit.”

    Grating writing style

    First Laura Dave novel I’ve read/listened to. Don’t like the writing style that seems to be popular and “critically-acclaimed” for this genre. Saying everything in multiple different ways to prolong the story - for example, “then I did it. I did the one thing I knew I had to do all along. The one thing that ....” making the reader wait through a few more sentences or paragraphs until making the point. It’s almost as if the author has to reach a certain word count or something. I find Marisa De Los Santos’ novels are like that too. May be fine as a quick actual book read, but listening to this writing style got grating.

    She Wasn’t Wrong...

    No spoilers:
    “She wasn’t wrong” is certainly the favorite line for the first 2 chapters. Sister loves using using repetition. “She called me a hypocrite. She called me a hypocrite, and she wasn’t wrong.” “A chair, a deep leather chair.” “I am alone. So very alone.” “I put my drink down. Very gently, I put my drink down.” So much repetition throughout. So much repetition. So so much.

    I am honestly surprised the reviews aren’t more mixed. It’s not that I didn’t like it. This book is pretty good, interesting, unique, mildly entertaining, but I’ve heard better. I really enjoyed the last few chapters, but I’m not sure if that makes it worth it for me.

    I’m thinking Lowman tells a mean bedtime story, because I liked this most right before bed. She just makes me feel so relaxed and sleepy, which isn’t what I’m going for while doing chores and listening to entertainment. I would suggest speeding up to 1.1. The book probably would have been about 2 hours shorter if it weren’t for the looooong sleepy passion-free narration and all the repetition.

    I’m also confused about why books like this keep showing up in the psychological thriller section. My reviews would probably be better if the expectations were appropriate.

    good story, great narration, poor writing

    Really enjoyed this narrator, and the book is easy to get through. It's a good thing it's fast paced and plot driven, because the writing isn't great. Most overused phrase - "that stopped me". It became comedic to hear it again and again. Overall, entertaining but nothing particularly special.

    Well performed!

    The story itself was very similar to a John Grisham novel. It’s very simply written. With that said I couldn’t stop listening. It definitely held my attention and kept moving.

    Re(a)lationships

    I loved this novel for it‘s different approach to relationships between people and the way the story unfolds. Unexpectedly expected or hoped for but walking in another direction. Guess everybody should be just a little more selfless.

    Ganz okay

    Also: von einem Sieger des Goodread-Choice-Awards hatte ich mir mehr erwartet. Die Geschichte war interessant, einfühlsam und recht glaubwürdig. Und gut gelesen. Aber vom Hocker hat sie mich nicht gehauen.

    SOSO

    I liked it the narrator. She did an amazing job. The story had potential but that missed between chapters, so at the end I couldn't figure out who he really was Owen. This character seems important for the story but at the end is not relevant. There was a few moments when you think something exciting is gonna happen, but at the end nothing happen. Is a soso for me.

    I was hooked from the start

    There are stories, that are told in a way I get sucked in immediately. This was one of them. I couldn't stop listening.

    Just right for a busy mum who loves a good book!

    Just what I was looking for, the right amount of love story but with a great plot, some twists and turns and a bit of a mystery... Loved it!

    Ganz schön, aber eher kein Thriller.

    Es war schön. Ich hatte leider aber andere Erwartungen an das Buch. Aus meiner Sicht ist es eher ein Drama und kein Thriller.
