Summary

Author Heather Gudenkauf won instant acclaim for her USA Today and New York Times best-selling debut, The Weight of Silence.

Once the golden child of tiny Linden Falls, Iowa, Allison Glenn watches her reputation crumble as she is sent to prison for five years—convicted of a terrible crime. But what really happened that fateful night? Allison’s younger sister is the only other person who knows the truth. Now out of prison, Allison is more desperate than ever to set the record straight, but the revelation of the truth could have far-reaching consequences.

Well told but incredibly sad story

Would you listen to These Things Hidden again? Why?

No, it made me cry. It was a good story but I got too emotional. I would recommend it if you are not as soppy as me.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

There was several narrators which worked well for the most part although one of the narrators was not great at doing the child's voice and he did not have a dedicated narrator.

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

Yes but I obviously can't elaborate.

Any additional comments?

I would definitely recommend it.

This is a truly terrible book

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This book could never be a 4 or 5 star listen.

What could Heather Gudenkauf have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Everything. The story was totally unbelievable, totally impossible and the self pitying, victim bearing characters were enough to make me want to throw my iPad out of the window. Ridiculous, morose and deeply irritating.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Well read if you like an earnest miserable book. Too earnest for my liking.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger!

Any additional comments?

How this book ever got published defies belief. Sometimes I admit a book is just not for me, but this one should be for no one. Horrible.
