Joan Ellis clearly has an excellent ear for dialogue and has developed an intriguing plot that hooked me from the start. She also made it very difficult for me to put it down - fascinated as I was by this car-crash of a life that Sandra, the heroine, finds herself in.
The three main characters, Ben, Sandra and Carl, are not the kind of people most of us bump into every day - thank goodness - which contributed to making this read an uncomfortable one, for me. I generally lean towards amusing and likeable characters. But the very fact that I felt on edge, reading this, makes the book stand out.
So, I'm torn between four and five stars because five stands for 'I love it' which I didn't - I actually found it quite disturbing and some of the characters unpleasant or at least, difficult to warm to. Which is, in itself, a remarkable feat by the author. And I give her a standing ovation for generating an edgy and troubling world for her heroine to inhabit, and applaud the fact she doesn't cop out by wrapping the story up in a pink-ribbon ending. So, for writing a book that gave me a whole different experience from the norm, I give it five.
