APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Lisa Jewell’s masterful, London-set psychological thriller Invisible Girl is taken to new heights in this utterly engrossing audiobook. For that you can thank its rotating cast of narrators, who take on the three main characters that this compulsive, almost always unsettling novel centres around. There’s Saffyre, a young woman who experienced terrible trauma aged 10 that she’s never quite dealt with. When she goes missing on Valentine’s Day against a backdrop of disturbing assaults on young women in the local area, suspicion immediately falls on Owen Pick, a “creepy” loner who’s all too easy to paint as a predator. Then there’s Cate, who has recently moved in opposite Owen with her husband Roan—the therapist who once worked with Saffyre but who discharged her before she was able to reveal what happened. This is a fast-paced listen where lives become interspersed and dark secrets and hidden pasts abound. But more than that, it’s about our willingness to make assumptions about the people who live around us, but who we barely know. Expect shocking twist after shocking twist—and to be hooked in from the moment you press play.
A great twist
Couldn’t stop reading it. A great twist
Compared to her other books I found this really boring and unimpactful.
I love how I only listened to the sample and it is great!
I would like to know more about this book soon🤗
