Like a chilling shadow this book caught and then engulfed me,
By A Customer
This review is from: Beneath the Skin (Mass Market Paperback)
At first I found it difficult to get into this book, but French's writing skills embrace you, encouraging you to read the next line, next page, until you're a social outcast in the canteen at work, as you blatantly declare you "don't want to talk, I have my book to read". As a woman, I found the novel crept up on me, like a chilling shadow, that this is something that could happen to any one of us in this day and age. The psychological thrill of the book makes it impossible to put down.
Zoe, Jenny and Nadia are all recognisable as women you may know, each individual and yet the same, targeted for a reason they cannot understand. The way in which the killer makes them question their knowledge of themselves will have you hooked, as they slowly but surely succumb, hooked through every last twist and turn. Buy it and enjoy it - you are never quite as alone as you think - I loved it
