I have loved many of Chris Bohjalian’s novels but with this one I found the book good but not like his others that I’ve read. The elements regarding sleepwalking were very interesting and the ending did surprise me.
I thought the characters were interesting as well. When Annalee goes missing her daughters struggle to cope with the sudden loss of her especially as their father isn’t too supportive. Annalee had sleepwalked many times but never disappeared completely. Her older daughter narrates the story and for me it was quite slow until closer to the end where it picked up and I felt I had to know what would happen.
I listened to the audiobook which is narrated by Cary McClain and Grace Experience. I haven’t listened to either narrator before but I did enjoy their telling of this story. So while this may not have been a favorite of mine I’m still very much looking forward to the next book from Chris Bohjalian.
