Summary

As their holiday unfolds, Colin and Maria are locked in to their own intimacy. They groom themselves meticulously, as though there waits someone who cares deeply about how they appear. Then they meet a man with a disturbing story to tell and become drawn into a fantasy of violence and obsession.

The most awful book I ha e ever read.

Why I kept going I don't know. Not a likeable person in it. Fortunately totally unbelievable and you would not have gone a million miles near these people let alone stay in their company. No understanding of domestic violence at all. With a broken spine apparently she still enjoyed it! Dreadful. Please don't waste your time. Very two dimensional.

How Weird is this ?

I enjoyed listening to this audio book and love the reader. It was an interesting story- but can I say I enjoyed it? I am not sure. I felt the couple to be very naive and so the ending should not have been such a surprise. It was. I have no idea why it should end like this :(
