The Couple Next Door Reviews
Shari Lapena has tapped into a universal fear among parents.
Just imagine, your 6 month old baby is sleeping upstairs, the babysitter has cancelled at the last minute and the dinner party you have been invited to attend is literally just next door, one shared wall away. You can take the baby monitor with you. No problem.
It is in keeping with human nature I think, that once tragedy strikes we are all inclined to sit back and say “How could they have possibly?” Don’t misunderstand me, I am ...more
Pues oye, lo he disfrutado un montón.
No soy mucho de leer novelas de este género, pero he de decir que cada vez estoy leyendo más y estoy encontrando una vertiente más que interesante que de primeras no era mi favorita. He leído varios comentarios respecto a la voz narrativa, porque no es muy utilizada en este tipo de novela: es en tercera persona, sí, pero narra en presente. La verdad es que yo estoy acostumbrado a leer novelas en presente, aunque en esta ocasión había alguna cosa rara (como si ...more

I still haven't listened to very many audiobooks. While I prefer to read on my e-reader or read a book, I really do like having the option to listen to an audiobook now and then. It's a nice change and I can close my eyes (as long as I'm not driving). But I don't close my eyes often as usually it doesn't matter how exciting the audiobook is, I could very well fall asleep.
However, I didn't have that problem with this one. I w ...more
The first 75% of the book was terrific--lots of twists and turns, well-paced, interesting character development and relationships, I was eager to return to my audiobook every time I was away from it. I also loved that contrary to most thrillers that save the big reveal for the end, in this book, you find out who kidnapped the baby halfway through the book--so you get to watch everyone scramble and unravel from there on out. I liked it so much that I was mentally composing my 4-star revi ...more
Este libro me ha FLIPADO. Increíble. Hacía tiempo que no me enganchaba tanto a una lectura.
THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR is an outstanding debut psychological thriller novel from author Shari Lapena, and one of the best reads I have read this year! This novel, a child-abduction case, races along at an amazing speed, full of twists and turns, totally gripping the reader for the suspense ride from beginning to end. I kept flipping the pages as I had to know what had happened. I loved it!

Then all the secrets...gotta have secrets. Mom is struggling with post-partum depression. Could she have done something to the baby ...more
3.5 Stars. This book turned out just meh for me. I was completely sucked in from the start and then at about the 65 % mark the characters started annoying me and I wasn't thrilled with the ending. Some other people might like this more than I did. I read a lot of psychological thrillers so now very few are 5 Star reads for me.
A special shout out to Kirsten Potter the narrator. She was awesome!!! This is very easy to follow on audio.
