  • A suspenseful but depressing read

    Terrific plot. DREADFUL ending. I admit I was hooked from the beginning. I was going to give a 5 star review – great suspense and hard to find any plot holes. But then came the ending. Mild spoiler alert *** I hated the ending because I like to see justice dealt. If I wasn’t reading on a Kindle I would have thrown the book across the room in fury. I read somewhere that the author got stuck around the 80% mark and had to get her editor to help her finish the book. I find that very believable.

    I admit to really not liking this book for the first third. I wasn't interested in anybody and I'd been spoiled for a twist. So I trudged along, hoping to see what the fuss was about. I was having a really stressful day and this just wasn't hitting the spot.

    I'm not even sure what point it was where this book grabbed me. All of a sudden, I couldn't put it down. I pretty much finished it in a day.

    I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't read this yet. Basically, it's about Nick and Amy. Amy goes missing and Nick is a suspect. He wants to find his wife and follows clues to her disappearance. The novel goes through twists and turns and ends pretty explosively. I was spoilt for more than that, which really took away from my enjoyment of the story, so I refuse to do that to anyone else!

    I hear this will be made into a movie, but I'm really not sure how that will go. I don't know exactly how they could convey everything in this book on the screen.

    This was a pretty good time killer. The characters were fairly unlikeable but I got over that. I wouldn't read this again, but I'm glad I've read it now. I found the second half to be far more interesting than the first, as that is really where the psychological thriller kicks in. Though this second half was awesome, the first half let me down and lowered my rating. Again, this didn't live up to the hype for me, but it's a good book.
