Summary

From acclaimed film producer and novelist Galt Niederhoffer comes another no-holds-barred examination of the American domestic ideal. Poison is a literary psychological thriller audiobook about a marriage that follows minor betrayal into a bubbling stew of lies, cruelty, manipulation, and danger.
Cass and Ryan Connor have achieved family nirvana. With three kids between them, a cat, and a yard, a home they built and feathered, they seem to have the modern family dream. Their family, including Cass' two children from previous relationships, has recently moved to Portland - a new start for their new lives. Cass and Ryan have stable, successful careers, and they are happy. But trouble begins almost imperceptibly. First with small omissions and white lies that happen daily in any marital bedroom. They seem insignificant, but they are quickly followed by a series of denials and feints that mushroom and then cyclone in menace.
With life-or-death stakes and irreversible consequences, Poison is a chilling and irresistible reminder that the closest bond designed to protect and provide for each other and for children can change in a minute.

meh

it was a very predictable book, you could tell where it was going the whole time and i felt that it was a rush to wrap it all up at the end

Slow moving

this book has bones of a great plot, but any dramatic tension is completely destroyed by tedious sections of verbiage, ridiculously over the top metaphors, and pointing out the blindingly obvious.

Couldn’t get into the story because of the narration

The story had promise even though it was disjointed. But I couldn’t listen for another second. The narrator (Hillary Huber) used a pseudo sexy voice that made it unbearable. I couldn’t stand her various voices. Hard pass and if I think of completing this book I’ll wait for the print version on the bargain rack. I keep forgetting to preview narration but I didn’t this time and she seemed ok in the sample. But it was tedious!!!

Excellent Thriller

Highly recommended! The book title is more indicative than it lets on and the summary doesn’t do it justice. The story seems like it will unfold under standard, everyday events and circumstances - whether or not pleasant. However, it takes a razor sharp turn early on and accelerates until the end. I wish it was a little more subtle in the “plunge of thrill” in the sense that we knew more about their lives and why the characters take such drastic measures so soon. Nonetheless, this was a great thriller with twists and turns, an unusual dynamic of how families are formed and why.
