The Mystery/Suspense/Thriller that "The Girl from the Sea" throws at you is truly phenomenal. The novel opens with the girl on shore half drowned and unable to remember anything, even her own name. The various people who come forward to claim her have unusual stories of how her life really is. How will she know who she really is? What's true? What's not true? Who can she trust? She's thrown in one suspenseful thriller after another. It will keep you on your toes making you beg for more! Can anyone stand up to more extensive scrutiny then she endures? Shalini Boland draws her characters to new heights and adventure that is yet again both fascinating and intriguing to say the least. I usually don't read psychological thriller, suspense books but, this book pulled me into every twist and plot making my soul yearn for more. I will definitely read and suggest you should read anything this lady writes. It's a true talent. starts making some changes that surprise people from that life. But there’s where the similarity ends. There is a dark, foreboding menace hanging over Boland’s book that is completely absent from Moriarty’s. Different takes, both engaging.
The plot and twist just seem to come from no where with turns you'd never suspect. You will not be disappointed at all! If you like the intrigue of different and unreliability the author throws you then you'll love this. Often so many books seem to become and you can actually figure out what's going to happen. This is a problem with avid readers over time and you get sort of in a reading rut. This book gives you that freshness you need. Way to go Shalini!
Yes, I actually thought the book was so fantastic it's hard to compare because the writing skills were epic but Gemma was great. I do think that it could be little more heart felt but, it still gave you the chill factor and adrenaline pumping you are always searching for. You would not be disappointed!
Yes! I love this book! It's so immpecable it pulls you in from the start and you can't get it out of your mind! The flow of the book draws you in and you stay glued from start to finish!
The authors skills are phenomenal you will not be disappointed! It's a must read!
Hooked on Books.
Probably a 7
Some of the ending scenes
yeah, use a credit. You won't regret it.
Say something about yourself!
Too many to write about.
See for yourself! Is she for real?
Great story, highly recommend!
The narrator was great in that she didn't try to overdo the male voice roles. The story was thin and in most ways predictable.
It kept me interested, but after it was over I wasn't wowed. It's not the kind of book that sticks with you.
If the story didn't take so long to make an obvious twist.
The twist was boring. So many elements that could have been and interesting development that just petered out. I wish I could bring myself not listen to a complete book when I know it's going to be a disappointment.
Nice, various, likeable
the narration was good.
I totally enjoy a well written novel with a great narrator!
Yes, I totally enjoy a good narrator, and Gemma Dawson is one of the greats. Her voice is smooth and keeps you entwined in her storytelling.
I'm not really sure, I don't want to spoil this however Mia was my favorite in the beginning. Madelia became my hero at the end and Scarlett was a nice surprise.
No I listened to this novel twice actually because I was upset I didn't catch the villain in this story sooner? This means it was well written!
Stop naming novels The Girl in or from ? It's getting ridiculous my fellow Authors! I call for us to be more creative! A Call To Action!!!!!!!!!!!
