I read the first 2 books in Angela Marson’s Kim Stone series (Silent Scream and Evil Games) earlier this year and gave them both 5 well-deserved stars. These books are in my top 3 reads (maybe even top 2) for 2015, and I have read some superb novels this year. Immediately after reading Silent Scream, I decided I was going to read everything Ms. Marsons writes and downloaded her first 2 books, both nonthrillers. My Name Is is her debut novel. I didn’t dare hope to enjoy it as much as Silent Scream, but guess what? I did!

My Name Is is nothing like Silent Scream, except for its ability to snare me in. This novel is a masterful character study (my favorite kind of book along with thrillers) of 2 young women who become close friends. Kit has recently escaped her life as a prostitute; Fran is a lawyer. These two sound pretty different, right? Yes, but they also have two common denominators: neither one of them has ever experienced love from anyone, including parents; and both are desperately trying to kick their addiction to alcohol.

I was captivated by these women from the start, though I didn’t begin to love them until I learned more about why they acted and felt the way they did. Kit and Fran, on the surface, remind me of some people in my life, and it makes me wonder what is really behind their exterior façades? Why do I find myself not caring for them? What are their stories? It’s tragic to realize that the lack of love in childhood can transform people into miserable unlikeables and can push them into drug and alcohol addiction. What a sad concept to contemplate. The story of Kit and Fran also demonstrates that a human being really only needs one close friend to make life much more bearable, and in some instances, much happier.

I absolutely loved this book. Kit and Fran at 23 have nothing in common except that they are recovering alcoholics – after meeting at an AA meeting, they become unlikely friends. We follow their lives through a six-month period. Chapters are written in alternation, with Kit and Fran giving us details of their own daily struggles with flashbacks to their pasts. The flashbacks, their pasts, have shaped the women they have become and as the story unfolds we can see who they will become.

The writing is so easy to read, this was a book I couldn’t put down. The way they deal with what life has thrown at them and their determination to succeed, to move on - I felt like they became people I actually knew.

This is a book to read – I could not recommend it highly enough and I will be looking out for more from this author.

There was nothing to excite me in this book at all. I purchased it after reading Silent Scream which was excellent. The only reason I finished it was I had nothing else to read and not because I wanted to find out what happened in the end. The proof reader was obviously bored too as there were a few mistakes! It annoyed me that although the book is set in England the writer constantly refers to the mothers as "Mom" or "Mommy". I've never heard that used here, is the author just writing for the American market?

I love Alison's Kim Stone books and have just pre-ordered her 6th in the series. They are gripping page-turners. However this book, which is entirely different is one I can't get on with. It drags, there is nothing to make me want to keep reading and the characters are shallow. I will finish it in case Alison has done what she does with the KS series, and put an unexpected twist in. I hope she has as that is all,that, for me, will make me think my time hasn't been wasted. My view seems totally out of line with that of many other reviewers here, so if you're a fan of the author don't take my word for it - give it a try. I will look forward to April when the KS arrives.

From the author of crime novels the D.I. Kim Stone series, Silent Scream, Evil Games, Lost Girls and Play Dead.
It was an emotional story, rather than the crime novels this fab author is known for.
This was the first book she wrote and was previously published as ‘My Name Is’
Even though this is a different genre I was eager to get my hands on it.

To Friendship!!

I didn’t devour it in one sitting, as the header says.
I fit in bits of reading on my work break or at bedtime, so it took me a few days.
Anyway, I don’t like to rush a book. After all, the author puts in a lot of time writing it so I like to do the same when reading it.

Great writing, I love the two main characters.
Fran, a lawyer and Kit, an ex-prostitute.
They do have things in common though. A struggle with alcohol addiction and a complete lack of love in their lives.
They strike up an unlikely friendship. It proves backgrounds and jobs have no bearing on people’s ability to hit it off.

Fran’s parents are both lawyers. A house with no love. No cuddles, no conversations.
It was like they couldn’t wait to get rid of her.

Kit’s Dad wasn’t around. Her Mum met a new bloke, Bill.
When Kit’s Mum died Bill wasn’t a very likeable chap to say the least. His apology to Kit would never be accepted!

She spiralled down and into prostitution, fled a violent pimp and ended up in Birmingham.

This is where Fran and Kit meet, at an AA meeting.

I found Kit’s character to be very hard and aggressive on the outside. But she was such a lovely girl underneath the armour.
Fran too, was a tough case-winning lawyer.
They both thought they were weak but were in fact incredibly strong.
