Description

They were all there the day your sister went missing....

Who is lying? Who is next?

Then - In charge of her little sister at the beach, Claire allowed Eleanor to walk to the shop alone to buy an ice cream. Placing a coin into her hand, Claire told her to be quick, knowing how much she wanted the freedom. Eleanor never came back.

Now - The time has finally come to sell the family farm and Claire is organizing a reunion of her dearest friends, the same friends who were present the day her sister went missing. When another girl disappears, long-buried secrets begin to surface. One of the group hides the darkest secret of them all....

If you love Sue Fortin, Gillian Flynn, and The Girl on the Train, this psychological thriller packed full of twists and turns will be impossible to put down.

Outstanding, A Knockout Story

The narrator did an excellent job creating a different voice for every character, which is no easy feat, with as many as there were. I only have the story 4 stars bevause I found the constant ping-ponging of characters/time periods quite confusing at times.
However, that is easily overlooked in light of the overall story arc, plot, and the deftness with which the author keeps you guessing until the end. I'm looking up more of her work immediately!

Waaaaaaaaaay too long.

While the ending was decent, the story could have been told in much less than the 12 plus hours of meandering nothingness contained in most of this story. I actually fell asleep a few times while listening, and, thinking that I had missed something important, re-wound to find out that I missed absolutely nothing. So, if you fall asleep while listening, and you will, there is really no need to rewind. Just pick it up where you woke up...you won’t have missed a thing. It feels as though this so called ‘reunion’ is happening in real time. People sitting around, drinking tea, going to the beach, and taking walks. I didn’t think there were any huge twists or surprises here, as these stories are pretty formulaic. Also, this story is so long, you’ve got plenty of time to figure it out.

Predictable

I guessed every twist. And I wasn’t trying that hard. The red herrings were obvious, and the characters had no real depth. That said, it was easy fun listen that got me through a day of tidying house.

Narration elevates the material

The tag-line promises "an utterly ripping psychological thriller with a jaw-dropping twist ". Sorry, not even close. I saw every plot "twist" early on. The author seemed to think that more plot equals more suspense. The reason this story is entertaining, and it does have some suspenseful elements, is the narration by Karen Cass. She's excellent ! The story, though, is pretty implausible.

Just plain silly

Story was far fetched and characters irritating. completely unbelievable and the main villian's motive was flimsy at best. . Narrator was excellent though.

A hot mess!

A good psychological thriller requires multi-dimensional characters who resemble real people. I didn't find them here; there was no explaining what psychological factors motivated these characters. The whole premise of having a reunion of those present when Claire's sister disappeared decades before made no sense to me. The book was very slow getting started as the many characters were introduced. The "shocking" twists near the conclusion came out of left field--but I guess if you're not dealing with real people, then pretty much anything is possible. I'm surprised that so many listeners enjoyed this.

Really good, but far too long.

I really enjoyed the book overall; there were only a couple things that bothered me.
For starters, the narrator; she keeps a good, up tempo pace, moving the whole thing along, however, she does this strange inflection with her voice, to make (what I assume) is a strained or cracking noise, to provide emphasis on a point, or dialogue. The problem is, it ends up sounding a bit like a weird Christopher Walken impression.
The storyline itself, is good, it’s just far, far too long.

Very disturbing

The Reunion certainly makes Gone Girl look like child's play. At first I didn't like the book and I'm not sure I ever felt for any of characters but the book hooks you and there are so many shocking twists that you can't put it down until you know what happened.

Spannend bis zum Schluss

Ein vielschichtiger Krimi mit vielen Wendungen, die ich nicht erwartet habe! Sehr viele Protagonisten, man kommt aber nie durcheinander, gut gesprochen! Die Geschichte ist ziemlich abgedreht, unwahrscheinlich, aber trotzdem hatte ich viele Stunden schöne Stunden mit diesem Buch.
