This book just goes on and on and on and on about the most mind numbing inconsequential detail. It's like a drone that doesn't stop.The actual story could be good,but the book should be about 2 hundred page shorter.ive never experienced this kind of ridiculous detail,ever. The sort of detail that has nothing to do with the story. ie. Talking about radio 1 djs endless rubbish about hairstyles. Random and bizarre. Boring twoddle
The beginning of the story was quite promising but it got worse and worse. I kept persevering for the big twist, but wish I hadn't. Probably the worse book I have downloaded
Ridiculous story line that really dragged and the twist wasn't much of a twist. The voices of the different characters overlapped such that it wasn't possible to distinguish who was who.
I found the narrators voice irritating when she was speaking the men's dialogue. The story dragged on with endless descriptions of how Alison adored her daughter Katherine. It picked up towards the end with the abduction but certainly hasn't made me rush to read more from this author.
Very slow start, main character is so anoying, almost gave up. Gets better in the later chapters if you can stick with it.
The story was good, the plot was excellent and unexpected, however, after we found out the 'big twist' the story just changed and never went into detial, so ending was dissapointing.
