I put off buying this book on several occasions because of the readers reviews and finally relented after reading the writer recommendation for the third time. I will admit that if you are an action film type and prefer everyone to state their intention in less than 5 words using no more than two syllables per word, then you will hate this book. If however you actually like reading books, then you will appreciate the authors efforts to paint the scene and express her thoughts and feelings. Although I feel 5 stars is too generous, I wanted to express how strongly I disagree with the other reviews. I am an avid book reader (both normal and audio) and thoroughly enjoyed the book. I strongly recommend it and upon completion immediately bought the follow up book Sliver of Truth.
Dont buy this book before reading Beautiful Lies. It will make little or no sense (hence the negative reviews from the other readers) It does follow on from where Beautiful Lies left off, which helped tie up a lot of loose ends and provided a perfect opening for a whole new twist to the story. The second book is not as well written as the first but I was so wound up in the plot that I didn't mind too much. It IS fiction; very much so. But that is the appeal of this book. The idea that nothing and noone is what they seem keeps you hanging on to the very end. If you are looking for believable, go buy an autobiography instead. The pre-requisite for this story is a little imagination.
