When I received the tour invitation, I knew I had to snatch that chance up fast; sci-fi and elite agency looked like a great combo, and I was curious to see how it would play out. For the most part, I have to say I’m satisfied.
Fall and redemption with a twist would be an appropriate subheading for The Fall.
We’re following Eliza and the slow destruction of her entire life. It’s like watching dominoes fall, the inevitability present in every page: whether you’re rooting for her as I did or not, the outcome won’t change, but maybe, after all is said and done, Eliza would be in a better place.
TN follows the journey of Susan, a woman who lost her daughter to a heinous crime. While traveling to North Dakota to witness the execution of the murderer, she comes across new evidence that would clear his name.
I think of PitP as a raw gemstone A ruby or an amethyst pulled from a mine, ripe with potential - and since this is a debut novel, I’m here clapping. Good plot, good ideas and twists, nice and not so nice characters, an oppressive setting: bravo
The Newlyweds puzzles me. Like, a lot. I picked it on Netgalley, intrigued by the synopsis: a good old psychological drama, two newlyweds (hence the title) hiding things from each other, pretty straightforward yet interesting enough to make me anticipate some plot twists. It delivered, in a way, but - puzzled, as I said. Stay with me for a moment here.
It took me a while to read this book, and it might take me just as long to figure out what to say about it in the right way. Truth is, there is no right way, because I had a hard time with this novel. This is my review of Point Roberts by Alexander Rigby. Spoilers are hidden behind white text, but I feel I'm getting better at avoiding them.
