I don't know Having already read the second short The Burning Girl , I think Agatha could have made an early appearance in this book.
But globally it was good, especially for a story being told in such a short number of pages. Also, not only did it leave me curious about the author's other works, it made me realize that I haven' read a full length Lisa Unger' novel in awhile. Shelves: net-galley , ebooks. I would like to thank Net Galley and Simon and Schuster Pocket Books for an advanced copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.
This is my first Lisa Unger experience. The Whispers: A Whispers Story is the first installment of a trilogy of novellas. I am not a dedicated fan of novellas nor do I consider myself having any interest in the paranormal genre. Despite these two strikes in my opinion against the book, I loved it! I can point out several positive features.
The writing is su I would like to thank Net Galley and Simon and Schuster Pocket Books for an advanced copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review. The writing is superb. Unger is a seasoned professional author, and it shows. The story grabbed me on page 1 and didn't let go till the final page.

Despite the short length of the book, the character development was excellent, particularly in the case of the protagonist Eloise. The paranormal aspect of the story surprisingly drew me in and was almost believable this is a compliment. The Whispers was solid; by that, I mean despite it being only pages or so, I did not feel short-changed in any way.
All the ingredients of a very good book were there. I also give Ms. Unger kudos in making it clear that this is a novella with 2 more parts. It seems these days, authors will cliffhang the reader by surprise, leaving the reader frustrated.
Of note, this part of the trilogy can actually stand alone, which makes it less painful to wait for the subsequent installments. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a superior fast read.

Based on this short story, I definitely plan to finish this novella trilogy, then delve into Ms. Unger's full-length novels. Jul 11, Petra rated it really liked it Shelves: series , audible , paranormal , short-stories. My first book by Lisa Unger. I listened to the audio version narrated by January LaVoy.
Excellent narrator. It's a short story introducing Eloise who discovers she has psychic abilities. Well written, featuring interesting characters, and considering its length, a remarkably solid story. Moving on to the second of this trilogy. Dec 01, Taylor rated it really liked it. I'm definitely intrigued. The Whispers is like a murder mystery, but with a twist. It's both haunting and touching. I'm already invested in the characters, even though this first installment is only 66 pages long. I'm interested to see how the rest of the series unfolds!
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for this ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is a short story of a woman named Eloise whose perfect Happily Ever After world has been forever changed by a tragic accident. After she recovers from her injuries, she discovers that she has developed an unusual gift. She begins to have visions of young girls who are apparently victims of accidents or crimes.
Sometimes the visions she sees leaves small clues that can help save the victims. But, sometimes she's too late. It's always a race against the clock! This is one of thos 3. This is one of those "life can change in an instant" stories. I think in Eloise's case They lost their lives but in exchange maybe she will be able to save others from losing someone they love. It's a nice premise for a story. This is a type of story I've read before or seen portrayed in the movies It also reminded me a little of The Sixth Sense Even though it is a familiar storyline, I don't think seeing dead people ever really gets old.

In The Whispers Unger takes us through the beginning as Eloise comes to terms with her ability and decides to help those in her visions. I love how strong a character Eloise is even as her own world crumbles she puts herself out there. Her visions and the story line were fascinating and had me reading this through in one sitting.
Despite it being a novella, it was satisfying and I look forward to reading the next ones; The Burning Girl and The Three Sisters, scheduled to release in November and January Of course, now I want to read Fragile the first book in the Jones Cooper series. It takes place in the Hollows, where readers first met Eloise. Copy provided by publisher. This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Book Reviewer I love short stories because I don't always have all the time in the world to sit down and read a book, so with a novella, it gives me a chance to get through something relatively quickly!
