My Rating: 3 out of 5
I really like the overall idea of this book, but I wasn’t very impressed by it. I found it difficult to connect with the book, as it felt like the author was listing facts about the main character rather telling their story. I also found most of the book difficult to read as it is written in past tense and I prefer the events unfold as I read about them, as it makes me feel like I am experiencing what the characters are, which in turn helps me relate and identify with the characters.
Once the book returned to present tense I enjoyed it a lot more as it picked up and the plot started to come together, so I saw it through to the end. I did enjoy the ending as it made me think about what the future had in store for the character, but I did feel that the author tired to cover their tracks too much by explaining how the final event played out.
Overall I would say that the book is OK and if you enjoyed reading it I would recommend you read the Girl on the Train.
