Publisher's Summary

This wonderfully perceptive new audiobook is about the lines we'll cross for love. It's about the murky areas between right and wrong, and the complexities of modern relationships.
The Hypnotist's Love Story is about the mild craziness that lurks behind the facades we present to the world, especially when it comes to love.
Ellen O'Farrell is an expert when it comes to human frailties. She's a hypnotherapist who helps her clients deal with everything from addictions to life-long phobias. So when she falls in love with a man who is being stalked by his ex-girlfriend she's more intrigued than frightened. What makes a supposedly smart, professional woman behave this way? She'd love to meet her!
What she doesn't know is that she already has. Saskia has been masquerading as a client, and their lives are set to collide in ways Ellen could never have predicted.

Where does The Hypnotist's Love Story rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best, everytime I had to pause my Ipod, I did so reluctantly! It was quite a fast pace and I always wanted to listen more to find out what would happen next.

What did you like best about this story?

It was interesting throughout. Each of the characters were different. Some of the lines made me laugh out loud. The storyline was excellent and just when you think you know what's going to happen next, it takes a different turn.

Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favourite?

Both were good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Don't want to give anything away, but I finally felt sorry for Saskia and was glad when she found that there was life after a failed relationship and other people actually liked her!

Any additional comments?

Have listened to and loved each of Liane Moriartys books that have been available to download through 'Audible' I have listened to them all and am disappointed that there are no more. I think she has written more, but some are not on 'Audible' Liane Moriarty is very witty, sometimes her characters come out with some hilarious comments. The different personalities are very intriguing, and others can remind you of somebody you know. Her books are a must for women in their 30s, 40s + 50+ Liane Moriarty really brings the personalities to the fore and she certainly knows how womens minds work.

Credible and very well observed characters.

Would you listen to The Hypnotist's Love Story again? Why?

This book has the ability to enthrall and grip from the very beginning. As a Hypnotherapist I approached it with some misgivings, but enjoyed another book from this author so gave it a go. The story has real credibility and unlike many others it does not gloss over real issues and leave you feeling that it could never happen to real people. The emotional responses are totally believable and very well observed.
I am not crazy about the narrator but she does a good enough job on this, although she does "grate" on me a little.

What did you like best about this story?

I felt that the Hypnosis elements were well researched and totally credible. Good story.

What aspect of Caroline Lee’s performance might you have changed?

Its difficult to explain her shortcomings, as this is a very subjective view, but I do find her voice a tad grating.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No, but I did enjoy the emotional challenges.
