This book is AMAZING. I don’t think I’ve ever been so gripped EVER - not by Christie, nor Sheldon, nor my recent latest pet thriller author Marrs. Lizzy Barber is something apart.
I am not literary in any way but I do love the way Barber strings her words together and makes each and every one count. Sometimes well written books annoy me with their floweriness and frilliness. I often feel the need to just enjoy the language of a well written book and forget the story as I’m not gifted with any ability of multi tasking! To my ignorant eyes and ears My Name is Anna is not only beautifully crafted but the eloquence of the writing is part of the story rather than getting in the way of the story.
I am reading in parts both from the hard copy and kindle but in the main I am listening and both the narrators are the most suited to the novel I’ve heard on Audible.
I am a little cross though as I cannot get on with my day nor sleep at night as I can’t put it down!!
Really sad to have finished this book. Can’t wait for the next!
