If you are someone who enjoys books about relationships & character studies, then this is the book for you. It’s about what happens when a relationship ends, one party refuses to accept it, and how this affects the other persons new relationship.
Saskia and Patrick dated for 3 years. When he broke up with her, she simply refused be left and begins stalking him and his son. It’s not with any violence–she just refuses to let him forget her, them, what they were. When Patrick falls in love with Ellen, she wants to get to know Ellen, as well and proceeds to, under the guise of a new client at Ellen’s hypnotherapy practice. It’s a story with lots of layers–Saskia and Patrick, Ellen’s burgeoning interest in Saskia, Patrick and his family, Saski and Patrick’s son, Ellen and her family, Saskia and her mother, Saskia and her lack of friends……they all play into the why’s of how this 3 year stalking begins and ultimately what ends it.
It was funny, sad, interesting and insightful. Liane Moriarty really let’s you get into the heads of Saskia and Ellen and what drives them and how they view their relationship with Patrick. She somehow made Saskia’s stalking seem innocent and funny and a mind-game all at the same time. I felt for her and was appalled by her behavior at the same time.
Tamara Lovatt Smith’s narration was excellent! She somehow walked the fine line between making Saskia likable and just short of manic. She really captured all of the characters well–so hard to do, especially in a book with many characters of different ages.
Review 2: The Hypnotist’s Love Story audiobook by Taryn
I love Liane Moriarty and I loved the narration by Tamara Lovatt Smith, I also loved, The Husband’s Secret and What Alice Forgot. This book was not as good as the other two but not without some entertainment value. The plot was predictable, not all the characters likeable and we had to hear endless psychoanalysis of each character. However, the narration made it all easy to listen to and it wasn’t a total waste of my time. I am sure I would NOT have enjoyed reading this book, but to listen on the treadmill, it was fine. I wouldn’t rush out and get this one but if you need to use a credit, its not a total waste.

Have you ever met a character you want to smack? This is “the hypnotist”, Eleanor. She is so sickeningly sweet and the storyline is so “over-the-top” smultzy, I found myself talking out loud to my iphone “oh come on!” The poor reader is tortured by Ellen’s never-ending stream of thoughts and analysis about every single happening and every word spoken by every character. A silly novel with little to offer.
