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.

    Wow. That was quite intense. The book itself is well-written, but the narrator brings it to life. I would love to meet this Nora and get a coffee. She seems so down to earth and guarded and vulnerable just like I can be.

    Ruth Ware somehow digs deep into the female psyche creating charcters that are multi dimentional in a setting where everyone is suspect. Narrator Church is the Mel Blank of audiobooks giving each character their own distinct voice and accent giving the read the appearance of a multi-reader cast. Can’t wait for the next Ware/Church collaboration.

    Loved it! Great narration and some genuinely scary moments where I wouldn't recommend listening in the dark. Suspenseful, dark mystery. Highly recommend!

    I love the narrator of the book but the story had very slow pacing. The novel overall was good and the mysteries kept me going. The characters were definitely unique in his/her own way. I found only one character likable and that was Nina.
