2.0 out of 5 stars Missing - any sense of suspended disbelief -, 4 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Missing (Kindle Edition)
Oh dear, the first two chapters were good - I suspect that the synopsis for the book was OK too, which probably explains why it ever got past the publisher's readers. The problem for me was, that having created Sybylla, a complex edgy character who had learned to survive by remaining aloof and anonymous for years, the author goes all touchy feely and reduces her to a pathetic whimpering victim who unburdens herself to the second character she actually has real contact with. What was worse, so far as a credible plot was concerned, was that this character was a 15 year old boy, who, by a stroke of luck proved to be just the person who could help her prove her inocence of all alleged crimes. Contrived - yes. Full of cliche in terms of plot - yes. Worth reading even when you have nothing else to read - don't be silly. The joy of a Kindle is there is always something else to read. I chose not to finish the book.Missing
