2.0 out of 5 stars More like a study than a story. Disappointing and predictable., 22 July 2014
This review is from: The Book of You (Hardcover)
No spoilers, but some references to the plot.

I enjoyed seeing the escalating stalking play out, but felt this book's sub and main plots didn't gel. The subplot didn't pay off. I was expecting a surprise turn in which the sappy Clarissa outsmarted her stalker using what she'd learned during the court case, but it never came. The comparisons to fairy tales could have been more fully realised, and really, must a man save our poor heroine?

The predictability was the only surprising thing about this book. I didn't buy the police work being so lacking, nor did I appreciate the colourless dialogue. Only Rafe had a distinctive voice.

Despite a couple of punctuation and grammatical mishaps, the prose is fluid but uninspired.

If you accept this book as a study of one womans experience of being stalked, it might be better, but as a work of fiction it shortchanges the reader to a massive extent.

There is nothing clever about it. What a shame. Oh, and the cliche half a woman's face on the cover? Purlease!
