On the face of it, this book should have been "my thing". It came across in the product description as a dark thriller with strong lead characters I wanted to know more about - I love those types of stories. The synopsis in the product description was enticing - it was an easy decision to download this book onto my Kindle.

But it promised so much and yet was so difficult to like. The writing style was very disjointed, making it confusing to work out what was going on and even at times working out who was narrating or whether the story was being told in the past or present. There seemed to be some characters who appeared without explanation and seemed to disappear in a similar manner. I feel as if I did not particularly understand some of Julianna's or Scott's actions and for that reason, it became difficult to feel anything towards them, good or bad.

There were some elements of the story that I actually liked, during the (very few) parts I felt I had some sort of grip on the story. I liked the fact it was set around the time of Hurricane Katrina and I felt that came across well. I liked the fact the story was as dark as I had hoped for. But there were several times where I had to flick back to previous bits thinking "hang on a minute, how has this come into the story" or "wait, I don't understand why this is happening" and still not feeling particularly enlightened. I even came back to this product page to double-check the product description to get an idea of where the story was going. As a result, it took over a week to read this and I feel as if I finished the book for finishing's sake. I could not tell you how it ended, just that it was frankly all a bit too weird and it was a relief to finish.

Takes you from a 'boy meets girl' story to some very dark places indeed. Enjoyed how the story unfolded and how it was told from different points of view. Great to see a writer trying to be a bit different with structure and making the reader work and keep guessing about what was happening and what would happen next. Very brave to try to write about such a huge disaster as Katrina but Reilly manages to give a good description of the hurricane as it rolled in. Looking forward to more from this writer and hope that he keeps trying to take chances - very promising writing.

Misisipi by Michael Reilly is a romance mixed with mystery, murder and global issues. It is a work of fiction based on recorded historical events.

Reader discretion is advised.

PLOT

It is 1997. A hot summer's day in Arizona and three girls are stopped at a gas station, trying to fix their car. They've come all the way from Boston, aiming for LA. Julianna Putnam is twenty-one. She's just graduated and wants to get away from home, from her adoptive parents.

While the other girls are occupied, Julianna notices a young man struggling with his car a little ways off. Turns out they're not the only ones with car trouble. She gives him a hand and the two immediately hit it off.

Scott Jameson is also running away. An engineering graduate, he bailed before his Masters exams. He hasn't told his father yet, and is standing at the metaphorical crossroads between home and LA when he meets Julianna. She discovers he's stone-cold broke and lends him enough to get him the rest of the way. Scott wants to pay her back (not just for her generosity, but so he can see her again). With no cellphone and no other contact number until she reaches LA, she has to think of a way to get it to him once she has one. The two devise a plan- a place she can leave a message in LA, so that he can get in touch with her, using Navajo fetish stones- Native American carved stones with special meanings.

Cut to Boston, 2005. August 22nd. Julianna and Scott are married, but not happily. There's a lack of communication that stems from their past and Julianna's- though Scott isn't aware of that. They rarely see each other. Then one day, Scott comes home from work and finds her gone, leaving nothing but a one-line note for him.

I finished the book quite confused and think id need to read it again to fully understand what was going on but at the same time i dont know if i want to read it again. I generally understood the concept of the book and what actually went on but i feel that i missed out on alot of the book. I liked the fact that Julianne had left a long account in what had happened to her as a child but i feel that the beginning of the story didn't really give u a clear indication of who she was. It was like it was talking about 2 different people and didnt fit in to who she was. It took me about a week to finish the book as i felt it was hard work in places.

I found the story to be too confusing, too much forward and back with the characters' lives. unbelievable. I was hooked to start with but found myself more and more frustrated with the action. There seemed to be no reason behind some of the husband's actions in searching for his wife, why does he decide to go there, or there? Maybe I missed something but I certainly lost the plot .
