Audio Book Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Our Kind of Cruelty by Araminta Hall, read by Nick Hendrix and Eleanor Matsuura.

'Simply one of the most disturbing thrillers I've read in years. In short I loved it, right down to the utterly chilling final line' - Gillian Flynn, author of GONE GIRL
Our Kind of Cruelty is:
'Astonishingly dark.'
'Chilling. Disturbing. Addictive.'
'Gripping, unsettling, and brilliantly constructed.'
'The year's best thriller.'

Things were difficult with Mike by the end. He was too much, too controlling - sometimes, I was afraid of him. But I've moved on now. I'm getting married to the man of my dreams - he looks after me, but he doesn't stifle me. Mike and the games we used to play - that's all in the past now.
It's time to move on.
Mike and I are finished.

It was just a matter of time until she came back to me. After what I did, maybe she's right to make me wait. But Verity knows how sorry I am. And the messages she sends me, the way she calls me, the way she acted last time I saw her - no-one acts like that if they've stopped caring.
She'll be mine again.
No matter who stands in my way.

    I have tried to finish this book several times but at 80% complete, I have given up. It is an overly analytical monologue of a guy obsessed with his ex-girlfriend. This book is just not for me but I found it slow and tedious without real meaning. Hopefully others will get more enjoyment from it.

    The book is well written but the narration did not grip me as much. At some point It become quite predictable.
