Audio Book Summary

What should be a cozy and fun-filled weekend deep in the English countryside takes a sinister turn in Ruth Ware's suspenseful, compulsive, and darkly twisted psychological thriller.Leonora, known to some as Lee and others as Nora, is a reclusive crime writer, unwilling to leave her "nest" of an apartment unless it is absolutely necessary. When a friend she hasn't seen or spoken to in years unexpectedly invites Nora (Lee?) to a weekend away in an eerie glass house deep in the English countryside, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. Forty-eight hours later, she wakes up in a hospital bed injured but alive, with the knowledge that someone is dead. Wondering not "what happened?" but "what have I done?", Nora (Lee?) tries to piece together the events of the past weekend. Working to uncover secrets, reveal motives, and find answers, Nora (Lee?) must revisit parts of herself that she would much rather leave buried where they belong: in the past. In the tradition of Paula Hawkins's instant New York Times bestseller The Girl On the Train and S. J. Watson's riveting national sensation Before I Go To Sleep, this gripping literary debut from UK novelist Ruth Ware will leave you on the edge of your seat through the very last page.

    This is a fantastic thriller. The characters are complex and relatable. It's a great portrayal of toxic friendships on top of being a nail-biter. Ruth Ware is my new favorite author. Imogen Church is an audiobook listener's dream: a beautiful voice with a wide range of emotions and dialects turn easy listening into headphone theatre. Don't miss this!

    It took awhile for the story to get going and I felt as though the plot was very drawn out. The narration was quite expressive but I wonder if I had read it rather than listened if it wouldn\'t have felt so slow.

    I liked the story, but just way too much swearing. It felt like the characters had a very limited vocabulary. The narrator was great. I enjoyed listening to her. If she'd been awful, I would have given up on the book because hearing the swear words is worse than reading them. You can skip over the words.
