Boring

I couldn't wait for it to end. Long drawn out story line with an awful ending. I loved his first book 'before I go to sleep' but not this one, not at all....I only finished it because it was a gift.

Starts well then becomes ludicrous

It’s hard to believe that this over-blown tosh is by the same author as Before I go to Sleep. The latter had an imaginative theme, even if medically unlikely, and gripped the listener throughout. Second Life starts reasonably well and I thought it might turn out to be a well-crafted story, even though I soon realised it would depend on the main character, Julie, making errors of judgment: par for the course in many novels. However, Julie soon behaves so idiotically as to be totally unbelievable. She keeps saying that she mustn’t do this or that and proceeds to do it. The writing becomes more and more dreadful in its extravagant physiological descriptions of Julie’s fears and anxiety that sound more like the description of a volcanic eruption than human emotions. She boils, explodes, floods, implodes etc., etc. It’s the kind of writing one hopes to grow out of. There’s some gratuitous sado-masochistic sex thrown in perhaps, because of the success of Fifty Shades of Grey, which I haven’t read but get the gist from all the publicity. I persevered in the hope that the overwrought writing would tone down but it didn’t. The story in the end is preposterous and I feel I’ve wasted hours of listening but at least I was always doing something else at the time.

The narrator is very good and I sympathise with her having to read this badly written and ill-conceived book.
