Look Behind You by Sibel Hodge
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoyed listening to this book. There were parts of it where I think the author tried too hard and I did roll my eyes, (I took off a star for this). I try not to do spoilers so I have to leave that you to find on your own. There really wasn't too many times, for me, so it did not ruin the book for me. The bad person is bad from the start and you know it. The other suspects, including Chloe, are not so in your face. This had me believing I had it figured outright away only to question it later on. It is easy to believe the awfully bad person is always the one who did it so these surprises were welcome. The story moves at a fast, smooth pace. I didn't feel jerked around anywhere. My jaw did drop toward the end.
I really enjoyed the narrator on this. I thought she did really well with the pacing and giving voices to the various characters. A big plus, she didn't make me feel sleepy at all. I listened at night on a readathon weekend. Normally I try to balance reading and listening so I don't fall asleep. With this story and narrator, there wasn't a spot I wanted to stop at.
I would tell my friends to give this book a try, especially those with an interest in mental abuse and those who enjoy unreliable character narrators.
Thank you to Amazon for providing a copy of this book to Prime customers.
