Is this a book for adults?
I haven't finished listening to this book, but there is something I just have to say.
The writing, especially the romance, was very juvenile. I rolled my eyes so many times over the romantic thoughts going through the characters' heads I'm surprised I can still see. I kept asking if these were really adults. In checking out the author, I can see that she's an adult. So, why are her characters so immature?
The author also repeats things over and over. Guess what? I'm a reasonably intelligent adult who doesn't need to be bashed over the head with the same details you just mentioned in the last chapter. And the chapter before that. And the paragraph before that.
The narrator did an excellent job. I'm going to search out more books by her.

More twists and turns than a mountain road!
In Dying to Tell no one is the person he/she appears to be and nothing is as it first seems. The story, centering around multiple personality disorder, is actually quite good. Its is a very good suspense/action thriller. It is an excellent psychological thriller. It is also a romance novel with two horribly written sex scenes apparently flowing from the distant memory of an old lady who forgot what it was like.
I would give the novel 4 or 5 stars based on the quality of the story were it not for the pathetically clumsy writing of the sex scenes.
