  • (4/5)
    Although it was easy enough to figure out who did it by the middle of the book, it was an enjoyable, easy read.
  • (4/5)
    Well narrated, some surprises, just loved the little plot twists.
  • (3/5)
    Nicely narrated with all the intonations, but quite implausible and predictable.
  • (3/5)
    Good listen, a little predictable, but had one of the best "love to hate them" characters I've read in a while.
  • (3/5)
    Saw most of it coming. I was not overly impressed.
  • (2/5)
    Every plot twist was there to be seen. Some of it read like a bad screen play. It was a great idea that wasn't handled that well.
  • (3/5)
    The story was a bit simple, the characters underdeveloped. I didn't love the narrator. She spoke as if she was speaking to kinder-gardeners. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this read.

    Great book, full of suspense. Really makes you think about the complexity of human nature and relationships.

    I found this book very interesting in the beginning but the last 10 chapters or so were slow and tedious. I wish the protagonist was more likeable and definitely more intelligent. Over all I enjoyed the book. The reader did a superb job.

    Enjoyable book, good twists -sometimes too long spent on Julia’s thoughts. A good storyline, I recommend this book

    Hmmmm book was average, plot thin, obvious and unbelievable. Too easy to guess who the bad guy was. Didn’t like the writing style either. Verbose is ironically the only word I’d use :) all that said, I still listened to the end, so it had something!

    After Anna by Alex Lake was a Sunday Times bestseller in Britain last year. I picked it up based on the publisher's description: "A bone-chilling psychological thriller that will suit fans of Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn, Daughter, by Jane Shemilt, and The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins."Julia is running late to pick up her five year old daughter Anna from school - and her phone is dead. She hopes the school will understand - again. But when she finally arrives......Anna is not there. She's vanished without a trace.The first half of the book details the search for Anna and the guilt and blame Julia is subjected to - by herself, the public, her husband Brian and his mother Edna. The actual police investigation is a bit thin - the focus seems to be on the three main characters and their dysfunctional relationships. Despite what has happened, I found it hard to like Julia and empathize with her. She's mercurial, all over the map with what she wants from life, from her marriage and belatedly - from motherhood. There's no question about Brian and his mother however. Edna is quite opinionated and Brian is happy to agree with her. Negative social media coverage provides a realistic look at how the media influences opinions and public judgement.Cut into the narrative are the kidnapper's thoughts...."It was easier than you had expected. The girl came without complaint. You spotted her as she left the school, alone, looking around, clearly bereft of a parent to pick her up. Who would do that? Who would be so negligent as to leave a five-year-old in so vulnerable a position? It was appalling, it really was. But it was good for you."This is not a spoiler - it figures prominently into the publisher's description. In part two Anna is returned unharmed. Where was she? Why was she taken? And why is the kidnapper still interested in this family? I think this plot turn would have been better if the reader could have discovered it themselves, rather than having it already laid out. It certainly detracted from the search for Anna in part one as we know she is going to be found.There is a paucity of suspects and I found the whodunit fairly easy to suss out, despite the large red herring in the room. After Anna didn't quite live up to the comparison to Gone Girl, but I found the book entertaining for a lazy day's reading.

    A parents' worst nightmare....four little words: "Your Child Is Missing."Anna disappeared without a trace as school was being let out for the day.Anna's mother, Julia, was late picking her up and blamed herself. She and other family members were hoping that another family member had picked her up. Well....someone did pick her up, but they never brought her home.Anna was missing for a week, and then surprisingly returned. Very strange in a kidnapping case, but she was safe and unharmed. But was she and were other family members really safe in such an odd turn of events?AFTER ANNA had me on the edge of my seat as the kidnapper narrated what was happening and as we flashed back to the ongoing police investigation and daily lives of the characters.AFTER ANNA is a must read for anyone who loves thrillers, chilling situations, a unique story line, and an evil, manipulating villain. Mr. Lake did a marvelous job of keeping me guessing even though a few folks said they guessed right away who the kidnapper was.I would consider this one of the top thrillers I have read this year. As I neared the end, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to see the outcome.ENJOY if you read AFTER ANNA. 5/5This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation in return for an honest review.
