Never judge a book by it’s cover…as an author this can’t be stressed enough…as a reader, I couldn’t resist! Unfortunately, I was wrong in this case. The cover was awesome and promised a haunting tale that the story just didn’t deliver, and I honestly thought I’d never finish this book!
It grabbed my attention at the beginning, but by the third chapter, I felt as if I had read the same thing over and over. This happens throughout much of the book as Mr. Saul builds to the stories climax. This could have been a very good psychological thriller and a real page-turner, if it had been told in half the length. Instead I found myself putting it down and walking away, waiting sometimes days before I picked it up again then once again becoming frustrated with the same scenario’s, bearing slightly different descriptions.
This is a classic example of once hitting the best seller list, always remaining there…we should all be so lucky!
