Held my attention at all times amazing ending

Wow. What an amazing book with an attention gripping story line. I liked that they used a woman and a mans voice to portray the 2 main characters. I would definitely recommend this book.

Captivant

This book is amazing. It catches me so badly. I recommend it for who like cliffhangers.

Will recommend...left guessing until the end

Brilliant narration! Makes a good story even better. The book is easy to listen to and story line unpredictable. Would not be surprised if they make a movie...

Astonishingly good

The story starts at a gentle pace and gradually reveals itself to be an astonishingly good book in every respect. I was thoroughly immersed in the plot which is woven so subtly I hardly realised how good it is until it had drawn me in. The characters are developed so well that they feel real to me. Every single one of them relatable , and every viewpoint engenders empathy. He writes simply with a gentle clarity and no wasted words, in a way that is respectful towards the reader, the subject matter and the characters. The plot is at the same time both familiar and surprising. Wonderful narration. Thoroughly enjoyable book. I loved it. And... it feels cathartic in a way that is also surprising. He writes with humility and honesty. I hope his other books are as good, because I am going straight back to buy more. Wonderful book and really good narration. Perhaps not everyone will enjoy it because it is an introspective experience, but it is such a breath of fresh air in comparison to other popular literature that is churned out using the winning formula of sex, money, greed and revenge that leaves me feeling dirty afterwards even if it is entertaining. This book is not like that. It is a gem; a holiday from the smut of popular culture. Read it. Thank Alex!

Excellent and riveting

Amazing story that made unexpected turns! Exactly what you want out of a murder/mystery. The medical aspect to it made it even better!

Great narrators

After getting off to a great start, the climax of the story ses underwhelming. The two narrators however did wonders with the text.

An intriguing Twist

Got book for my book club. This book was totally opposite the boring title. The intrigue and suspense drives you through every chapter. You wont want to switch it off

Terrific premise, Disappointing execution

This book has an extremely compelling premise (a seemingly inexplicable murder occurs and the culprit refuses to speak, who could refuse it?!), and a great twist in the tale. Unfortunately, the middle 80% of the book is drawn out and rambling and contains a lot of - for lack of a better term - psychobabble claptrap. I found myself cringing at a lot of the dialogue and discussion of psychological theories by the characters, perhaps because I don’t subscribe to a lot of those ideas.

I do need to credit the author properly, it’s a well thought out plot and the last 15% of the story moves at quite a clip. But the biggest downfall of this audiobook - and the reason for my two star rating - was the performance. Had the same story been read by an older, more authoritative voice, I might have found it a lot more compelling/enjoyable. But the delivery and the narrative tone just felt a tad pretentious, and I found that very off putting. I had to stop the book regularly to “give my ears” a break. Quite possibly just personal preference, but there you go.

Story okay, Ende unbefriedigend

Diese Erzählmethode war schon bei Agatha Christies: Ein Mord wird angekündigt nicht sehr originell. Als Leser fühlt man sich durch das Ende einfach veräppelt!

Sehr langweilig

Hat mir leider überhaupt nicht gefallen. Extrem unglaubwürdige Geschichte (ich weiß, es ist ein Buch, aber es nervt, wenn man sich immer denken muss "Pseudowissen in Psychologie", "keinen Zusammenhang", "schlecht konstruiert", etc. Ich war mehrfach nahe daran, nicht mehr weiterzuhören...

Warum die Bewertungen so gut sind, ist mir schleierhaft. Das zieht sich extrem in die Länge und mir war einigermaßen früh klar, wie ungefähr das Ende sein wird (so viel zum Thema "plötzliche Wendungen").

Schade - hab mir total viel davon versprochen.

PS: die weibliche Sprecherin fand ich ganz gut, da gab es aber auch ein paar sehr komische Stellen, der männliche, na ja...

Unfassbar spannend und gut

Einer der besten Thriller, die ich in der letzten Zeit „gelesen“ bzw. gehört habe. Die Sprecher sind beide eine perfekte Besetzungen für die Rollen.

Sehr spannend

Ich habe die Geschichte nicht durchschaut und war vom Schluss überrascht. Das sind meine Ansprüche an einen Krimi und die hat dieser hier erfüllt. (Bin eigentlich kein Krimi-Fan)
Keine Weltliteratur aber unterhaltsam und spannend.
Würde ich weiterempfehlen.

Unvorhersehbar

Mit realistischem Blick auf Psychoanalyse
Spannend, kurzweilig, philosophisch - toller Roman der überrascht und inspiriert
