More About the Author

Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home, but she went into teaching - and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the 'Superwoman of Great Britain' Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst books I have ever read! 6 April 2012
By Dee
Format:Paperback
I was given this book as a present and looked forward to reading it as Josephine cox was a new author for me. I am astounded that it actually got into print as I believe a child could have written better! It seemed to break every rule of writing and was stuffed full of repetition and cliches. The part where one of the characters was given the good news that she only had 'psychosis' made me laugh out loud!? I can guarantee this will be my last book by this author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Time :( 14 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
This was probably the most boring book I've ever read and I really didn't enjoy the style of writing. The first 380 or so pages could easily be condensed into about 50, there is a LOT of repetition. I persevered in reading to the end and the book was rushed to the end and resolved in about 15 pages. I couldn't even bring myself to take it to a charity shop, it's gone straight in the recycle bin.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Special 3 Mar 2011
Format:Hardcover
Slow but entertaining with a predictable story line and plenty of padding. Some characters have been given unimaginative names. Ideal for a fast reader on a long train journey.

1.0 out of 5 stars Breaks all the rules 18 Feb 2012
By Rosie
Format:Paperback
As a writer I've been told there are certain rules you have to abide by to attract and keep a reader's attention: develop realistic characters, a strong story line, don't over-explain everything, let the reader draw their own conclusions, don't keep on skipping from one character's head into another, write interesting, realistic dialogue that moves the action forward, do research into the jobs your characters are doing. Midnight seems to break all these rules. This book shows why you should obey them.

1.0 out of 5 stars awful book don't buy it 9 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This was the first josephine cox book I've bought,and it was awful enough to prompt me to review it online. The writing is attrocious, the characters contrived and stereotypical and you can virtually predict what will happen next in the story. Absolute rubbish, don't waste your money!

1.0 out of 5 stars Gave up! 1 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't normally write book reviews but this one was so bad it was almost laughable. I downloaded it for 99p in the Kindle sale but I would have been better off spending my money on a bar of chocolate - much more satisfying!The book description made it sound like it would be a really good read, but honestly, page after page of waffle, padding, and overly long conversations using pretty much the same words over and over without ever actually saying anything. Got to about 17% through on my Kindle and gave up so I have no idea if it got any better later on. Have just started Breaking the Silence by Diane Chamberlain (also in the 99p sale) and it is much more promising. If you want a proper psychological thriller then you can't go wrong with Karen Rose, Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardener or the earlier Nicci French books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Midnight Disaster! 6 Mar 2011
Format:Hardcover
As a fan of Josephine cox I was looking forward to Midnight.

It was absoulutely terrible, the story was weak the characters where confused. If she wrote it once, she wrote in a thousand ways how much Thomas loved Eileen total waffle padding out the pages.

A shame as she usually churns out a decent story. Divorced and Deadly was hilarious.

So no idea what happened here.

I found myself skipping bits out of boredom and repetitivness. The book is poorly edited, with characters names mixed up and mis-spelt words a plenty.

A total waste of money would not recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars average read 6 Nov 2011
By mocha
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed reading this book , however it does contain a great deal of repeat reading and feel this was to pad it out to actually make the 400 pages in paperback - it could have been written equally as well in 300 pages - certainly not one of her best books, but an enjoyable read all the same.
