  • I enjoyed it!

    If you’re looking for a good mystery/thriller to entertain you during the long winter months, look no further. In The Survivors by Jane Harper, a man returns to his hometown to assist his parents, but also ends up revisiting a haunting past. Kieran Elliott’s life changed that day almost twelve years ago when a big storm hit his hometown on the coast of Tasmania. Tragedy struck the family and a young woman went missing leading to an investigation of the death that was never resolved. Indeed, the small community members speculate on what they believed to have happened that day. Kieran has moved away shortly thereafter but has returned to help his parents move when his father show’s signs of early dementia. Little did he know that another young woman would be found dead on the beach during his stay: an event that has Kieran reexamining the mystery of what happened that day more than a decade before. The book had me guessing on what happened on the day of the big storm and to the woman on the beach, leading me down several paths. The geography of the area is very well described and creates the perfect setting for a mystery. I found the characters to be well developed and the story flowed quite well. The conclusion of the book was surprising and satisfying. The book has a large cast of characters and much of the book is a slow burn setting the stage for a reveal of the true events. This felt a little too long at times for me and I found my mind wandering. Moreover, it should also be noted that the book shifts quickly between different points in time and this isn’t always readily apparent to the reader. Having said that, I enjoyed this book and would not hesitate to recommend it. I listened to the Audiobook version of the book which was narrated by Stephen Shanahan. His Australian accent was lovely to listen to and he provided an articulate, enjoyable performance. His voice did not change when narrating different characters, but I did not feel this was necessary in this book. I listened to the book at my usual 1.25x speed, which felt comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend the audiobook version of this story to those who enjoy this format. Thanks to Netgalley and Macmillan Audio for the ARC of this book in exchange for the honest review provided here.

  • When you do go home again...

    I hadn't read a Jane Harper book before this one, although I'd been wanting to. So I was happy to have the opportunity to listen to this one, and even more happy that I wasn't disappointed. I love a good story with some mystery and some family drama, and that's what this was. There's an old saying that tell us "You can't go home again". This is what happens when you do. Indeed - people have changed, and things are indeed different and difficult for Kieran when he goes back to the town where he grew up and memories and feelings from the past are dredged up for him and his wife. His relationship with his parents is rocky. His friends seem happy to see him - mostly - but the incident from his past that haunts him haunts them as well and colors their current relationships. And when a body is found on the shore, suspicions and memories from the past just come back stronger. Excellent on audio, I thoroughly enjoyed the narration by Stephen Shanahan and the story. Thanks to Netgalley and Macmillan Audio for providing a copy for an unbiased review.

  • Great read!

    Jane Harper weaves a tangled web of intrigue in The Survivors building suspense and giving nothing away until the end. My favourite so far.
