Any additional comments?
Loved this story. I heard an interview with the author on radio and thought I just had to have a listen, especially as the author is a newscaster the same as her main character.
Well, here's another psychological drama with a female protaganist labelled as the next 'Gone Girl' and I am really tired of listening to them. Very few of them live up to the hype and this one definitely doesn't. The writing is unimaginative, the plot is tedious and laboured and I am afraid I gave up halfway through. By that point I had given up hope that things would improve and had no interest in the characters or in discovering what had happened to Clara. I enjoyed this book more when the narration was based in the present and found the writing became increasingly tedious when it moved to the past and Rachel and Clara's teenage lives. I also found Penelope Rawlin's narration increasingly irritating, her immature, sugary voice really grated on me. If you are looking for the next 'Gone Girl' I would suggest Lottie Moggach's 'Kiss Me First' or Sabine Durrant's 'Under Your Skin'. Both excellently written, compelling novels. Give this one a miss.
