3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 29 Sep 2013
This review is from: The Paradise Trees (Kindle Edition)
I was looking forward to reading The Paradise Trees by Linda Hueber as I enjoy psychological thrillers and thought what better than a suspense novel written by someone who has studied methods of behaviour and how people react under stress. However, the book turned out to be a disappointment. The characters of both Alicia and The Stranger lacked depth. Very little happened in the chapters narrated by The Stranger and the author simply regularly repeated The Stranger's mantra about 'the Helens'. I found the author's need to head each chapter 'Alicia' or 'The Stranger' extremely irritating. Unfortunately by the end of the book I didn't much care who The Stranger was, which rather defeated the whole object of the book.
