3.0 out of 5 stars Not my normal genre... but perfectly acceptable, 2 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Girl on a Train (Kindle Edition)
I downloaded this book recently on my continued quest to find new authors and experience different writing styles and genres. Overall I did enjoy this book and would have given it 4 stars but due to the, in my opinion, a slow and potentially confusing start at the beginning of the book I have only given 3 stars.

I'm not sure that the concept of the book was totally believable where a total stranger (Elly) deposits a keepsake in another persons bag (Anna) which then takes Anna on somewhat of a journey of huge discovery.

The style of writing was extremely competent and clearly the author has devoted lots of time in research to complete this book but I just find that some of the relationships are a little tenuous. The reader however is kept on their toes as twists and turns ensure throughout this book, which can lead to a little confusion, but really keeps the reader engaged.

As the reader nears the final third of the book, things start to become clearer and the confusing start of the book now is in context. The author skilfully changes the perspective from Anna through to Elly during the book which allows the reader to view the whole episode from the perspective of Elly. Once this is done, the reader gets a much fuller understanding of how the book actually hangs together.

I never try to give anything away for the reader of reviews but try to give an overall opinion of the book. So on that basis, I'm glad I downloaded the book and would be encouraged to read another of A.J.Waines books. I would recommend you purchase the book as it is very well written and cleverly concluded.
