That Twist Gave Me Whiplash
🧡 Let’s get one thing straight. This is a great story, but not one for the faint hearted. It’s a tough read. But it’s also smart and well observed with a fantastic twist that crept up on me and then knocked me over.
💚 So, what are the difficult bits? Well, it has a main character with locked in syndrome while her child is m i s s i n g. Unable to move or talk or in any way help her daughter. So there’s that. Add to that some truly despicable characters just going around do all things despicable completely unchecked. My blood pressure is rising just thinking about it.
💜 If you love this, it’ll be for the tension, for the need to see the story through, for the hope that the villains get their comeuppance. And, of course, for that twist. I had a bit of trouble liking the main character - didn’t always make the best choices - but not enough to affect my enjoyment.
