The story had me guessing what Sophia's problem was i.e. a mental issue, something darker and more sinister. But I could not quite figure out what it was. When it did all come out in the end, it was definitely not what I was expecting, certainly a twist in the ending.
Classical musicians will appreciate this book. But, even though Sophia is a concert cellist, that is not the main focus of the story.
I recognised many of the places used by the author in this novel. Especially around North London.
Sophia is powerfully written and might even disturb some readers in places.
A fascinating story, not the norm for sure.
I enjoyed getting to know Sophia from the beginning and felt I really knew her as I went further into the book. Her personality and it's many changes really kept me guessing and I needed to know what happened to her in the end.
Sophia was one of those books where you felt the character's emotions and, for me, I sometimes felt I related to her.
All in all, a very good read which keeps you guessing right until the end, and leaves you wanting to read it again!!
As a classical concert cellist myself and with Nigel's attention to detail, I could really relate to Sophia. When horrible things were happening to her and her cello, it felt like it was happening to me and my cello and I could really feel her pain. I will not include any details here, but there was a point in the book where I actually shed some tears (and I don't ever cry when reading!). At times like this, it was even harder to put the book down!
Having read Email From A Vampire, I was quite surprised with the different genre of this book, but it is just as amazing as the first one. Classical musician or not, it doesn't matter, everyone should read it! :)

This is not my normal read and I think I said that after "Email from a Vampire" (excellent). I love how Nigel has your interest from the first page. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Sheila Camp
