What disappointed you about Into the Light?
I have not finished the book and will send it back, I have endured it to Chapter 16 and it seems to be developing into a 50 Shades scenario, where the abused woman is bonding to her abuser. ( I have not read 50 Shades but have heard more than I wanted to about it.) I expected a thriller type book but this is not at all shaping up to be the type of book I enjoy.
Has Into the Light put you off other books in this genre?
Absolutely .... sexual perversion is not my thing ....
Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?
I expect the narrators would do better with better material.
What character would you cut from Into the Light?
Any additional comments?
It is possible that the series of 3 books improves and does not develop into a story where sexual abuse is ok if you are 'in lurve' but it bears those hallmarks at this stage and I am not willing to subject myself to any more of this awful book.

I thought I was buying an intriguing mystery, but it turns out to be a bodice ripper featuring sex with impaired consent and brainwashing. I hope in the end it turns out that the perpetrator and his conspirators are brought to justice, and the woman who is brainwashed and then raped is able to break free of her captors, but given the steamy romance novel treatment of their "love making" I am guessing this is not the case, and I won't be finishing the book.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?
I think all of the narrators gave an excellent performance.
Any additional comments?
Wow. This is one of those books that makes you sit back and think "What would I do?". It is so realistic that it stays with you after you have completed the book. It's kind of like the Stepford Wives meet a religious zealot. The story unfolds through Sara, her "husband" Jacob and reporter Stella whose friend went missing a year earlier. Sara and Jacob live in a community where wives are whipped with a belt for infractions of the rules - like asking questions about their husband 's decisions. About half way through I thought I had it figured out but I was WRONG!
Book is Excellent and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
