Lost interest, poorly written characters with backgrounds that read as more fiction then fact
I notoriously begin many books and finish few. I could not put this book down. It is beautifully written and a must read.
I haven’t read a book in years, I was just scrolling threw messing around and stumbled across this. Read 2 pages and I was sold. Say up countless hours reading this amazing book!
Trite. One of the imitations of Gone Girl whose ending is predictable and, ultimately, boring.
An Uncommon Reader
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading. I didn’t read a summary. I read the sample and then decided I MUST know where it’s going. I loved this book. I hope they make a movie so my husband can know what I’m going on about. (Since he won’t read..)
The end doesn’t even matter in this book (as surprising as it is), it’s the journey that will make you read all night long: the mystery, the silence, the sadness, the psychological quest to understand “why” or even more ...”what is redemption” . There is the curious mind of a psychologist, there is the emotional hurt we feel present in the book from the beginning to the end (but can’t understand why we feel it). We sense there is something tragic that lays beneath the story but we can’t quite put our finger on it, one dead end after another. When is it that we “lose” someone, is it when they die, before, after? and what happens when we “lose” the one person who we thought loved us unconditionally. It’s not a book about grief per se, it’s a book about the horrifying realization and actions we take when we realize we are alone.
