Quite a disturbing book to read. Some of it was a little contrived and far-fetched.

Boring. No thrills for me. I did not finish it. Too many good books out there to waste time on this rubbish.

I bought this book on the back of the many positive reviews that I had read. I am new to this genre and was keen to lose myself in a thriller. The general storyline seemed very appealing, and although good enough to keep me reading, I thought that maybe I could of done a better job myself! I was disapointed and read on believing that the 'twists' would soon arrive, but they never really manifested into anything that warranted the rave reviews. After reading this I put it in the bin, rather than passing it on. I have given it two stars as the general idea was great, maybe this would be better played out in film, a little like sleeping with the enemy.

Wanted to read this story before seeing the film. Enjoyable but a bit predictable.

Gripping, thought provoking and more than a little scary. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The idea of this book is certainly an interesting one and the beginning of the book draws you in. However by the middle of the book I had grown tired of the same routine and couldn't wait to get to the end. And overall that's the issue with this book; it ignores the journey and encouraged readers to focus on the ending and finding out what is really going on. Yet the 'big plot twist' was glaringly obvious and so the end felt lacking. It was like watching a horror film and the person you suspected was the killer really was the killer all along, not very exciting right? Mix that in with some poor characterisation and I feel I've summed up the book.

I read quite a lot, but very rarely go and buy a 'bestseller' or a book that everyone is reading- I quite like to find hidden Gems. I bought this book based on the reviews here but the book is so terrible I can't bear to finish it.

Terrible use of language, very dull and almost like a ' draft' or magazine-type story.

Each to their own on types of books and taste etc but I personally found it embarassingly poor! A lot of the 'plot' doesn't make sense, found myself skipping paragraphs just to try to get to an 'interesting' part of the book. Very bizarre writing style.

Waste of money for me I'm afraid.

This book is not unpleasant. The story is intriguing enough, and I suppose one shouldn't look for meaningful stories in a thriller, but the author does touch on some important themes. However, the style of the writing and the characters left me unmoved. The repetitions and the fact that the narrative never goes beyond the usual dialogue/action/descriptions to convey ideas tether this book to the realm of average. In spite of the millions of copies sold, I don't think this book deserves its fame. A much more compelling alternative to this story is Karin Altvegen's Betrayal, which at least has been written in a more compelling style.
