Short punchy chapters that really pull you through the story. I found there was a bit of a slump in the middle, but the ending made it worth it!

"That rarest of beasts: the perfect thriller. This extraordinary novel set my blood fizzing—I quite literally couldn’t put it down. I told myself I'd just dip in; eleven hours later—it's now 5:47 a.m.—I've finished it, absolutely dazzled."

I love listening to books only in the car and feel privy as if its a special performance just for me. The readers of this were exceptional. Not my usual choice of topics but I loved this book.

just finished this book. it is very well written and is able to hold
your interest until the ending. the author did a very good job making
reading and following the plot of the book well. it is a very good
psychological mystery builds the suspense and holds you until
the ending.

I found this slow and figured out what was happening 2/3 of the way thru. Only OK as far as I'm concerned.

This book literally gave me chills! I ripped through it so quickly and was so taken aback at the end. Wow!

I did not like this book. Yes it keeps you guessing however I found none of the characters were fleshed out nor could I develop any empathy for any of them. Perhaps the superficial was what the author was aiming for. When I finished the book I felt I had wasted my time. I kept waiting for something more. It's not the first best seller that I couldn't connect with.

If you want a book that keeps you guessing this is the one for you. You won`t be able to put it down. Which narrator is telling the truth?? Read this book to find out.

Initially I thought it’s not my type of book. But later story picked up. One side you read Theos Faber story another side Alicia .. beautifully written. Five star for this. Very interesting thriller. I could not keep book aside just read finished it in one and half days. Must read if you like physiological thriller.
