She suspects Lillian's and Dave's explanations about the other crash survivors aren't true. And now, Genevieve's determined to get the real story, no matter how many lives it destroys. In this intriguing tale of survival, secrets, and redemption, two everyday people thrown together by tragedy must finally face the trutheven if it tears them apart.

A story about survivors of a jet plane that crashed into the ocean. It reminded me a lot of the movie Castaway. I couldn‘t stop listening as the story switched back and forth from their time on the deserted island to after their rescue and returned home. The lies and secrets were enthralling! #MountTBR #ReadingUSA2019 #Missouri (one survivor lived there)

Feel bad for how low this is scored on here. I enjoyed it and how it all wrapped up. I definitely think there were some far-fetched bits while they were stranded on the island, but they didn‘t ruin the book in my opinion. Not a thriller really, more low-key.

Slightly nervous about this one because of the current Litsy rating, but we‘ll see how it goes!

Alfoster I have this on my kindle but have read it yet! Let me know what you think! 2y
Airforcesister @Alfoster I listened to this on Audio. It was ok. I liked the fact that the story plot went from past to present. For some reason I like those types of books. I really couldn‘t get into the characters though. But overall it was a 3 out of 5 stars for me. 2y

This was a book that I read then checked the Litsy score of and was shocked. I loved this book, from page 1 to page 300! I‘m not sure why it got so many “Pan” and “So So” reviews. I thought the writing, characters, and helplessness were executed flawlessly.

Just read 50% and was enough... 😒
The book, for me, is really bad and got no connection at all with the book or characters

Just finished this one. It wasn't my favorite, never was able to connect. I think because I wouldn't respond to ANY of the situations the way the characters did was part of the problem. It seemed unrealistic to me. On to the next read!!

Told in alternating points of view, & moving from past to present, this is the story of plane crash survivors & how they survive the wreckage of their lives. A fun, if predictable, read. I'd like to rate this a "pick lite": between a pick & so-so.

jessberk13 Yes, I enjoyed this one too. Interesting story! 3y
Eliza-beta I would agree - between so so and a pick 3y

I read Emily Bleekers " When I'm gone" and was really excited to read another one of her books. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy wreckage. Maybe my expectations were too high.

Yeah, super boring. Not the thriller I was promised. It's a romance.

This was supposed to be a thriller and we'd have to piece together the secrets of two survivors. Still waiting for the thrilling part.

I thought it was a good book. It was a quick read for me. The only thing I would say is I don't think any of the twists or reveals were all that shocking. It was all pretty obvious to me.

A story of survival and lies, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The twist at the end totally took me by surprise, but in a good way. The alternating timeline and POV really gave depth to the story, and I'm finding myself more and more drawn to these types of novels. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

beagle.mama I recently read her new one titled When I'm Gone and it was good, though I didn't love the end. 3y

Discussed this at my book club last night. This book was an enjoyable one, but not of the highest quality writing in terms of how the ending was tied up in a neat little bow. All the tragic events in the book were hinting at a much darker ending. It would've been more realistic. This is a fun summer book, but not one that would hold up under critical scrutiny. Although it does make you wonder what you would do if you were stranded on an island.

Well I finished it, even if technically the early AM of the day of the book club! 😜😜 Review to come after sleep! I have a lot of feelings! These 451 characters won't be enough to fill them all! I'll have to put the link to my Goodreads in the About Me section!!

LisaJo I so love Sleeping Giants. And I was pretty shocked because I am not a firm lover of sci-fi. Be prepared it's the first of the trilogy. And the second one is not scheduled to come out till April 2017. Perhaps, Oprah can make it up Oprah book club selection and they can publish it early. 3y

I love deserted island survival stories. I found this compelling with several twists + reveals throughout the story (not just at the end), which is great. I guessed some of them but not all and was surprised by the way everything ended. Audio read by Luke Daniels & Kristin Watson Heintz = 👍🏻
