5.0 out of 5 stars Great short story 11 Feb 2014
By optic
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bought this book today to try. Firstly I don't really enjoy reading as I suffer from dyslexia but having seen these quick read books advertised for people like myself I thought id try one. Naturally I didn't know what sort of book would be for me so I took a chance and bough Blackout. I have to admit it, I read it in one day and I honestly couldn't put it down. Fantastic story about a lady who comes to find herself in Paris but has no idea how she got there. It had me guessing the plot all the way along and I loved it from the start. Having tried my first quick read book I'm excited to try my next and for only 1 each you cant moan if they really don't suit you still.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely unpredictable - hurrah! 17 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Don't you just love it when you read a thriller/mystery and you haven't got a CLUE how it's going to end? That's what happened when I read this!

Waking up in a strange city, in strange clothes, without even your handbag - a marvellous start to any book! Ms Barr has done something with Blackout that I love - the dotting between past and present so that the gaps are filled in and the picture builds up gradually. Very effective. As often with this author's heroines, there are hints of a less than easy past from quite early on, but nothing is predictable. I love stories that don't explain everything too clearly. I was completely surprised by the ending, and hadn't seen any of it coming at all - I'd already written my own in my head! I know people reviewing books often say 'this would make a brilliant film' - okay, okay, I'm going to say it too! Not so much a film, though, I didn't think, as a four part TV drama serial. Come on, BBC - this would be a winner!

I really enjoyed this. Very quick read, but still with substance, this was an engrossing read. I do like Emily Barr's writing and this was to her usual high standard. Very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling 3 Feb 2014
By C. Colley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Sophie wakes up in a strange room, in a strange city and she has no idea how she got there. As Sophie's head begins to clear, she quickly realises that getting home to her family is a priority.
Flash back to a year ago and Sophie is looking forward to having her first baby.
What a great Quick Read! This thrilling story moves along swiftly and makes the reader anxious to know the outcome.
Can Sophie piece together everything that has happened before it's too late?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read & Price 20 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kept my interest all the way through. Didn't guess the ending, despite trying very hard to. For a quick read at less than 1 it was excellent value.
