"For anyone who has ever suspected something sinister lurking behind the craze of new-age spirituality, Jessica Grose has crafted just the tale for you. With the delicious bite of satire and the page-turning satisfaction of a thriller, Soulmates is a deeply compelling, funny and sharply observed look at just how far we will go to achieve inner peace."—Lena Dunham



  • At first, I found 'Soulmates: A Novel' quite captivating, but it eventually lost its momentum, lacking a compelling climax or a meaningful storyline to hold my interest. In the end, I found it to be predictable and uninteresting.
  • I'm a new fan of this author. The narration was good. It was shocking to have a deceased character's perspective shared for both past and present events. It was confusing at first, especially with the timelines. The criminal activity wasn't clearly explained either. The publisher's summary grabbed my attention without giving away too much. No spoilers here. Some editing would make the book shorter as there was some repetition. Also, the brief description of sexual intimacy was unnecessary. The ending addressed many of the questions I had throughout the story. It almost feels like the ending was written first and the earlier chapters were added later.
  • I found this quite gripping as it takes you through a psychological ride. I remember several years ago reading about this Yoga guru who had a very large following and how people who ended up leaving it, claimed that it was a cult. Members became consumed by it, paying every cent they had to it and eventually cut ties with family and friends. Women stated how the leader beat them and sexually assaulted them. I'm not sure if this story was inspired by that same Yoda guru and his following, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is since they parallel so much. I found this to be such an interesting look into how something can be manipulated by a single person in order to have power over others. As we see with both Ethan and Dana, the changes they made weren't over night, they were gradual and when change is at that pace, it's hard to see the dangers until it has already swallowed you. This was great in audiobook form and I definitely recommend giving it a listen.
  • This was not a book of great literary fiction but it is a highly entertaining story. I listened to it while traveling and it was perfect; not requiring my full attention. The narration was captivating, which I fully appreciated.
