5.0 out of 5 stars Disappear
Talitha really is a talented writer. This is a terrific read, and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I love the way she uses dialogue to evoke a scene. Feels like you are right there with the characters. She's seen some stuff in London many of us just aren't aware of. Very thought provoking and interesting novel. Highly recommended!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull, unconvincing read
Have just struggled to the end of this book and cannot believe it was published. Characters completely unconvincing, dialogue leaden and just dull, situations so unlikely. I rarely give up on a book and had nothing else to read at the time so kept going to the bitter (boring) end but it really was a huge waste of time. Avoid at all costs!

1.0 out of 5 stars I wish this book would disappear, 10 July 2011
This review is from: Disappear (Hardcover)
I can only presume that the two reviewers who gave this 5 stars (yes , that's FIVE!) are friends or family of the author. Tired , predictable prose , a tired , predictable plot and characters so one dimensional that they are errrmmm...one dimensional. If previous reviewers gave this five stars , then they best steer clear of proper authors such as Ian McEwan, Sebastien Faulks etc as they may simply explode.
If you like airport pulp then buy this, if you like a well written novel, then buy something else.

Disappear

Stevenson is an exeptionally good writer. Disappear is written in a very vivid way that effortlessly transported me in the world of the characters. It is a snapshot of real life with in depth exploration of the characters involved and I loved the way that their inner story is also reflected in the surrounding environment that often expresses the less conscious process and feelings.
Simply brilliant and highly enjoyable.
