Successful journalist Erin Kelly has electrified readers and critics alike with her debut novel The Poison Tree.

    Story
    "I couldn't stop listening the book."

    Loved it. I loved how the main character became a lot like her friend. I felt so bad for Rex the entire book.

    Story
    "The most important character is unconvincing"

    The story is good. It has element of Barbara Vine, concentrating on the bohemian life of young people on the edge of society in London.

    But.... we are supposed to love and root for one of the major female characters. And I didn't. She was just annoying, flirtatious, and shallow. Needed a full re-write to fix that person.
