DNF at 80%
I was so ready to love this book! I’d been wanting it forever! So when I finally got my hands on it I got straight to it and starting reading, but oh dear god, how wrong I was to be excited about this.
Now I’m not saying this is a badly written book, or the characters are boring etc etc, I actually find the writing style of Ware really nice to read but I thought the plot was so incredibly predictable it was honestly hard to keep my eyes from rolling every 5 pages. I know I’m not the only one who thought this because I spoiled the ending for myself by reading some of the answered questions relating to the book just so I wouldn’t have to put myself through the last 20%.
The ending is the biggest load of crap ever (sorry to be so harsh). It’s ridiculous! Plus I totally guessed it as soon as we found out about Clare & James.
Personally, my recommendation to you is don’t waste your time or money on this. If you’re looking for a thriller go read Behind Closed Doors instead. It’s so much more tense and thrilling than this novel that I can assure you, you’ve probably read 5 times already because it’s plot is so over done.
You might be wondering why I gave this 2 stars when all I seem to be doing is hating on it, but Ware is a good writer and her characters are well developed and interesting…. she just needs to work on her plot development.
