"A creepily effective thriller. Nail-biting, spine-tingling." (Observer on Before We Met)
"A fiendishly spun tissue of lies and charm eventually gives way to a bloody showdown." (Independent on Before We Met)
My name is Julie and I'm a middle aged woman who enjoys good writing, and good narration.
Prolly was fine at narration, but didn't care for the writing.
No I wouldn't recommend it, I found it quite pedestrian and the characters unengaging.
Non of them , that was the problem.
No it wasn't, it's a "who done it" with the usual twists and turns, but despite a few surprises it left me cold, I picked it because of the Oxfordshire setting but wish I hadn't.
If you enjoy good writing and in depth character studies, this isn't for you, I was left not caring who killed who, why, where or when.
A very slow suspense type story, like a psychological thriller, but the characters lacked depth and I found it easy to guess who the 'baddie' was before it was revealed. Also for a psychological thriller the storyline was totally unrealistic.
