I loved it. The story, the grammar, the language, the narration, the accent, the twist and the end. The cover displays a couple made of paper. The cover didn’t really attract me but this book was recommended by a trusted bibliophile, so I went for it. I have no regrets! 😉

The title was quite unusual because the book was under the thriller category while the title was a game we would usually play as kids.
The English language used was very good and understandable. The narration was in a lovely British accent. The fun new word was limerence and many others actually.
I will only give you a gist here because otherwise, I may spoil the twist for you. The story is about a couple who goes away one weekend in the hope of saving their dying marriage. Much to the husband’s dismay, this little suggestion was given by their marriage counsellor. In the middle of secrets, lies and the snowy weather, Adam and Amelia find that their weekend getaway is more than just a prize from a staff Christmas raffle.
*I loved the narration!
*The story had a great twist and a good ending.
*The grammar was impeccable.
*The story shows that our childhood impacts our adulthood in many ways.
*It tells us that every marriage needs effort from both people involved. We should never take love and marriage for granted.
*I learnt about a condition called Prosopagnosia (face blindness).
None whatsoever! I loved it!
Audiobooks are great to listen to while you’re walking, doing mundane house chores or travelling. This was my first try at ‘audiobooks’ and I loved everything about it. I listened to some of the beginning chapters twice just to understand how I had come to certain assumptions. There are words and phrases to throw you off guard in the beginning but after the twist, you suddenly have a change of heart and realize what was happening all along. So, if you are looking to start with an audiobook and you love thrillers, this one will not let you down!
