Could not put this down!,
This review is from: Give Me Everything You Have: On Being Stalked (Hardcover)
Lasdun's writing is enviably sharp, edgy, succinct. No wasted words: they simply sing from the page. Ordinarily I would not be interested in reading an account of a stalker, just not my thing, yet I simply could not put this book down. I finished it over the course of an evening.
Perhaps even more chilling is the ending - well, there IS no ending...
I now find myself wondering, what has happened? What has happened to Nasreen?
If only all writers had Lasdun's talent: to take the facts of a personal story and then weave them into a gripping taut account that takes on mythic emotional proportions.
Lasdun's gift is to beckon us into his world. His writing demands that we become part of his landscape, part of his unremitting struggle to free himself from his stalker.
