Publisher's Summary

One of the most tense, gripping thrillers you will ever read. From UK and US bestselling author Taylor Adams.

A KIDNAPPED LITTLE GIRL LOCKED IN A STRANGER'S VAN. NO HELP FOR MILES. WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

Darby Thorne is a college student stranded by a blizzard at a highway rest stop in the middle of nowhere. She’s on the way home to see her sick mother. She’ll have to spend the night in the rest stop with four complete strangers. Then she stumbles across a little girl locked inside one of their parked cars.

There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, no way out because of the snow, and she doesn’t know which one of the other travelers is the kidnapper.

Who is the little girl? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her?

Full of shocking twists and turns, this beautifully written novel will have you on the edge of your seat.

I’m surprised

I followed all the advice of my fellow readers because they said it was a quick and thrilling ride. They were telling the truth! I kept waiting to be disappointed and stop the book, but it kept my attention for the few days it took me to finish it! Really really impressed and satisfied. I do t want to give anything away but if you listen to as many books as I do you Long for the ones that stand out. Thank you Taylor Adams!

Hard to put down

This book was better than I was expecting. In fact I loved it. Liked the premise and the characters. The narrator does a pretty good job as well. This would make a great scary movie

Holy crap I thought it would never end

So it was a good story and the narrator was great but good grief. You know those movies where you think it’s done, but suddenly something goes wrong, and when that’s done you think- ok now it’s done, but no, there’s more- literally about 500 more things. I finished it just because I wanted to know the very end but I did skip some after a while. So incredibly drawn out. Soooooooooooo drawn out.

OMG Excellent!!!

I loved this book. It reminded me of Dean Koontz book intensity. This book has the momentum of a giant boulder sceaming down a hillside. it just keeps coming faster and faster right towards you until you just want to scream. Don't hesitate on this one if you want a wild, terrifying thrill ride

Booklady

Annoyingly written; great story BUT heroine spends way too much time inside her own head, castigating herself over and over. This would have been a first-rate story if the author had a stronger editor.

Mediocre story brought down by atrocious writing

I really struggled to finish No Exit. On one hand, the more violent the story got, the more I managed to pay attention if only to wonder how on Earth Darby was gonna get herself out of this predicament.

but on the other, I really think No Exit has the most terrible writing I've encountered in quite some time, and I'm really not a stickler for these things usually.

The problem with the writing style is hard to describe, but I think I've found a way to adequately do so.

You know how at the start of a TV show's season, there's generally a recap of prior events that takes a minute or so to make sure you didn't forget anything crucial before starting?

Imagine this in a book, and imagine it happening literally every 5 minutes, through repetitive descriptions, repetitive inner monologues, just repetition after repetition after painful repetition. The book drags and drags on because of this. It might go something like this:

"Suddenly, [NAME] entered the bathroom. The killer was in the room with them now. The killer, who had killed [NAME], was now only a few feet away from them."

Not exaggerating, this is the way the ENTIRE book is written. seriously Taylor Adams, we get it, [NAME] has heavy breathing. I don't know why this breathing is described in detail dozens upon dozens of times throughout the book because WE GET IT. MOVE ON.

Overall, by the end of the story, I didn't give a single crap about any of the one dimensional characters and found the entire thing to be a huge waste of time that feels like double its actual running time. But the narrator was pretty decent for Darby, even though a couple other characters were voiced in a way I'd characterize as... strange... but passable.

Either way, there are plenty of good mystery books out there. don't waste your time and credits on this.

I did an "exit" before this book ended.....

What disappointed you about No Exit?

Slow-paced and many of the details were just too unrealistic. A young kidnapped girl is left alone in an unheated car in the middle of a frigid snowstorm. When she is discovered she isn't even shivering?? How can that happen? The way she was discovered was also not plausible. I was unwilling to finish this book so I cannot comment on the ending.

What does Sarah Naughton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Sarah Naughton's narration was excellent.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The narration was excellent.

No Exit

This audiobook started out with a poem which my book did not have… There was a lot of missing words or letters or things or re-phrased in the audiobook… Which threw me off when I followed along. It’s a great book and they did a great job changing voices for the characters… but it was missing key points… Like towards the end they forgot to write the word kidnapper on the message she wrote on her hand. Which was an important fact. If I was not reading my book and following along, I would’ve not known this.

The audio book did not match with the paper copy!

I like to read along with audio books and it was frustrating that the times, locations and sometimes overall paragraphs of the book were different! But other than that the book was amazing!

Too violent

Nasty animal and human cruelty. It will take me awhile to shake off the evil container in this book, and the contrived little twist ending did nothing to help.

What a fabulous read!

This was such a rollercoaster. I just couldn't put this book down. Packed with relentless suspense and great twists it was like watching an action-filled thriller movie. I'm a sucker for thrillers where a bunch of people are stuck somewhere isolated... and then something bad happens. Just my piece of cake. And that final chapter was just perfect. The author actually fooled me. For the faint at heart, I would like to point out that there are some gruesome scenes near the end, but they aren't gratuitous. I think they fit perfectly into the story and atmosphere. Loved it.

Enjoyable Thriller

I really enjoyed this book. It was great and had loads of anxious moments.
I would definitely recommend it.
It was not a 5/5 for me as I felt like there were certain things that just did not connecting/ missing. I still have questions🤣

But nevertheless, a fast paced thriller with a bit of gore (the latter I was not expecting). What more could you want.

Heavily recommended

As an audio book, it was thrilling and very hard to stop listening. It was captivating from beginning to end. However, there are extraordinarily gruesome depictions of scenes and possibly uncomfortable discussions. Come prepared!

No Exit Review December 2021

The story starts slow and may leave you pondering on some details and direction , nevertheless if your looking for an unexpected turn of events and a warming glow of admiration and true grit towards characters this may be the ticket and destination for a brief adventure, once it gets out the traps, worth a read. Read well with good expression and emotion. Thank you.

Gruelling, bloody and stressful

Not the most fun I’ve ever had. It was a long string of one nightmare after the other until I was screaming “oh really?!”. I did see it out to the end with grim determination..several hours of my life and peace of mind I will never get back to be honest. Am exhausted and feeling quite bleak.

Made for TV movie plot

Unfortunately not a good listen, a thoroughly cliched plot, I couldn’t wait for it to end.

Easy listen but doesn't quite reach the mark

Every scene that involved tension seemed to drag on for as long as humanly possible. It was like, come on, either run away or just die already lol. The story itself was not too bad. I wasn't reeling to finish the story quickly as it didn't have me wrapt with needing to know.

Story ✔Narration ❌

The story was great, I loved it, but ALL of the characters were childish and oh so annoying! I think though that this was at the fault of the narrator. I just don't think that the way she portrayed the characters as the author intended. I think I would have enjoyed No Exit (more so) if I had simply read the book.
