A Page Turner

Kept me gripped until the end. Unravelled quite quickly towards the end but a very good page turner.

Brilliant!

This is well written, with strong characters and a gripping storyline. I’m surprised by the negative reviews. I guess some didn’t stick with it long enough for the story to develop. I loved it!

Disappointing

So far I am 7 and a half hours in and bored out of my brain. I just keep waiting and waiting for something to happen. The murderer is very predictable and the young narrators voice is very good but she’s only a small part, whereas I don’t like the other narrator as I feel she comes across very cocky and thinks she’s superior so I don’t feel sorry for the character like I think your supposed to. Very disappointed so I wouldn’t waste your money on it.

Intriguing

This book was super hard to follow - very dark at times which I struggled with but didn't see the ending that came out of it at all... A lot of twists and turns

what a mission this is to finish

I really struggled to finish this, deciding to keep giving it a go even though it neither inspired me to read on or buy into the storyline and annoying main character. I simply couldnt justify wasting several hours already spent on it to give in.
the twist is not a twist I saw it coming a few hours into the story.
Sorry, not for me!

Hated the Ending - NO SPOILERS

Performance was excellent.

The story was quite interesting but the ending seemed to have some plot holes that were irritating and added to my disappointment in the final outcome which spoilt the book for me.
