Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Watching You by Lisa Jewell. Gripping psychological suspense from the number one best-selling author of Then She Was Gone, as what begins as an innocent crush develops into a dangerous infatuation.

You’re back home after four years working abroad, with a brand-new husband in tow.

You’re keen to find a place of your own. But for now you’re living with your big brother, camped out in his spare bedroom.

And then - quite unexpectedly - you meet the man next door.

He’s the head teacher of the local high school. He’s twice your age. And he’s devastatingly attractive. Soon you find you’re watching him. All the time.

But what you don’t know is that someone is watching you.

Or that what has started as an innocent crush is quickly turning into an obsession as dark as it is deadly.

Family secrets, illicit passion and an unexplained murder lie at the heart of Lisa Jewell’s gripping new novel.

A compelling listen!

Very enjoyable. Twists and turns in the story; some of which I saw coming, but that was ok. Couldn’t put it down. Good narration.

Good Story - twists and turns a bit.

Easy listen as always for Lisa. Well narrated. I enjoy psychological thrillers.
I've listened to all her audio books and each one kept me captivated. More please.

A slow burner

I found the beginning sounded a bit too light hearted for a thriller, maybe because of the narrator’s accent BUT I stuck with it and it turned out to be a good listen in the end. I read Lisa Jewell’s first novel and loved that.

Loved this

Narration one of the best I have heard and a great storyline. I guessed who did it half way through but that didn't matter as there was an extra unexpected little twist at the end. Thoroughly recommend and will be downloading her other works and looking out for Gabrielle Glaister narrated books in future

Naration was good, but too mature.

The story was enjoyable though I wouldn't listen to it again. While well read, the readers voice was too mature to do young voices and was not always clear when doing male of female characters. These is a LARGE amount of 'He said.' 'She said' which became noticable with the over use of the phrases. A good story but a little distracting with launge used.

Fantastic

The thing that sets Lisa Jewell apart is her characterisation. I found this book utterly compelling especially Freddie the teenage boy who is “on the spectrum”, very well done. I think it’s not as easy as it looks to create “ordinary” characters who are interesting and engaging but Jewell is a master at this craft. It sets her apart from all those novels where the author feels compelled to give characters high powered and/or interesting jobs for example.

All in all a great read with a zinger of am ending.

Jewell's metamorphosis into crime writer is utter perfection. A little reminiscent of A Casual Vacancy.

A bit confusing but just okay

I listened to the full thing and it confused me because at the beginning there were so many characters that got thrown at you but I kept listening and overall I found it not as shocking and exciting as her other books I’ve read. It’s not too bad but I wouldn’t read it again.

Couldn’t finish it

I tried to get into this story cause it cost me a full credit and several times I thought enough but kept going hoping it would get better it didn’t so I finished it after 68 boring chapters 😩
