Would not listen again
And the ending was a bit strange, unclear and perhaps disappointing
A generally good listen; intriguing plot, but the pace was too slow. The narrative bouncing between different times periods was confusing at times.
Eh. Good beach listen I guess but really nothing special. The author had this odd need to talk about dead animals, animals and bugs dying and being killed. It didn’t lend to the story so not sure what the point was.
I was completely enraptured by this book.
So I listened to the whole thing, so that means it was interesting enough. But the ending sucked, and the plot has some holes. Forbidden love murder mystery. Oh yeah there’s a rape scene.
A little slow....
I could not stop listening. As an abuse victim I could have done with less vivid realism. I enjoyed the book but I think Elle made a BAD decision at the end!!!
Interesting book. Negatives: Were there any redeeming characters? the author used the F word way more than necessary. (Do you not know other words to describe sex?). Did the author have to describe the child molestation so grafically to get the point across? ( Hard to erase the image)
Plus side: author has good description of the natural setting . She describes Eleanor's response to molestaion well( not telling, being
Should have a gentle warning about the abuse that takes place. Ending was unclear.
Not great .
Slow. Backstory a bit difficult to listen to. Beware child abuse. Too much dirt and betrayal. Too little love and beauty of the location. Not the beach read for me.
I understand what other reviewers are sharing with the style of the back and forth in time periods but that’s the joy of reading/listening to different authors. A little slow in the middle but I enjoyed hearing the buildup and description of the different locations.
It really wasn’t all that exciting.
Too much foul language otherwise good story
The writing was not impressive enough to put readers through some of the graphic impressions of the author. Couldn’t finish the book and that rarely happens to me.
Fun read. Great narration.
