Editors' pick: Reading like the secret love child of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express and Big Little Lies, Foley stuffs this book with affluent people with axes to grind, sticks them on an island, and lets nature take its deadly course. Agatha Christie could only dream of a novel this fun."—Vannessa Cronin, Amazon Editor
"An Agatha Christie-like thriller."-- "Huffington Post"
"Wedding season means a thrilling web of mystery in The Guest List."-- "Parade"
[Foley's] puzzle is solid, she plays fair with the reader, and overall her story is swift and entertaining."-- "Seattle Times" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Next, as horrible as this location sounded, it seemed that at least 2 of the guests actually preferred to sit in a partially subterranean cave subject to flooding, too dark to see the back, full of weird noises, damp, dank and with unknown inhabitants and AT NIGHT !! ... than any other comfortable indoor place.
THEN, there was this odd disconnection where the author apparently forgot that she had said that only a select few would be staying in the Folly overnight, but then had hundreds of guests arriving for the day, events merging into the evening and night and no way for them to leave the island! where were they all going? was there a secret submarine evacuation planned, or a bridge she forgot to mention? as it happened, suspense was created by a violent, unpredicted/totally predictable storm which would have made a sea evac by anything other than a Naval destroyer impossible anyway.
Forgetting the logistics, the characters were so awful, I hoped they would all murder each other. All the suspenseful storylines were childishly obvious, the awful secrets eked out a child could have guessed and the villain I guessed about 5 pages in. I really liked the character Severine, because she said nothing and did nothing and was apparently part of the scenery.
