This is one of those books I would never have picked up if it hadn’t been a book club selection, and readily available from the library when I was looking for my next read. It is advertised as
Gripping. Heart-Breaking. Unforgettable. Discover the Most Captivating Crime Read of 2020. Hmmmm1
Look, it is fine. It’s well written, has a good pace to it, and kept me turning the pages. But heart-breaking? and unforgettable? sorry I don’t think so. I don’t think I every invested in any of the characters and without that investment how can a book ever make you feel?
I really don’t want to damn this book with faint praise, but I don’t understand the rave reviews I saw on the library ebook page. What is it that people were so gripped with?
that’s the sound of my doubtfulness ↩
