I've read over twenty books so far this year and this book was the most emotional book among them. It's well written, with characters that are well constructed and easy to picture and understand. The book flows well and kept me constantly page turning. I finished the book in a day as it was fascinating to see her life and how she coped with what can only be described as quite traumatizing events. The theme of the book is hope and it stands out clear, with a strong emphasis on the importance of family and friends. From the outset the book looks depressing and sad, yet this image couldn't be further from the truth. The writer develops Annabelle into a character who sees the good in all situations and overcomes impossible barriers in her life. I would easily recommend this book.
No book is perfect and there are a couple of small things I wish could have been changed. I wish the writer had spent more time writing about Annabelle's childhood as we see a great deal of her as a teenager and beyond but relatively little as a child. Towards the end of the book the description of scenes almost doubles to the rest of the book, overloading the pages. The book is nicely ended but it could have been shorter. I am literally talking the last seven pages, with the other 203 with near perfect description of scenes and feelings.
This book is really well written, and I would love for the writer to write more books, perhaps writing Annabelle's future and if she achieved her dreams or not. I have never really read a book like this one and it's uniqueness has stayed with me and I am almost frustrated that I cannot read another novel by Siobhan as `The Broken' is pretty darn good. It's hard to fault the book and I hope that I shall soon be reading another novel by her.
One of the best books I've read all year, easily worth the £11.91 price tag.
Fabulous work and such a good read! Recommended for all.
