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.Read more ›
Angela Marsons never ceases to amaze me how different her books are. How well researched and her knowledge.
Was unable th o put this book down threat, hurry up with the next please.
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
