I loved the switch of perspectives between Joanna and Alexandra. Joanna becomes more unreliable as the story goes on. Her part was executed perfectly, she showed every emotion I would expect a mother to display following the loss of their child. I would expect the emotion to totally get the better of her. Alexandra on the other hand, she has something to prove. She’s got everything to lose with Alistair and Joanna’s trip to Oz and she needs to fight. She needs to get her act together
I was left speechless at the end of this tense read, totally stunned by the events I’d read about. When I finished, I felt numb. Normally I can pick up another book within a couple of hours. After finishing The Cry, I couldn’t. The book left me chilled, unable to think about much more than the fate of baby Noah.
The Cry is a very different sort of psychological thriller. As with Viral, I felt it was about “how can this situation get worse?” Fitzgerald shows the chilling side of the lengths people will go to keep the truth from coming out and the extent the truth can damage relationships.
What a brilliant story, the is the second book I have read by this author (& it won't be the last). I think she has such an enormous talent and her descriptive writing is brilliant - I'm looking forward to reading more from Helen.
The author takes you on an emotional roller-coaster of a ride. I didn't want to put the book down and I read it in record time. The characters were believable and being a parent I could empathize with the feelings and strong emotions the author was trying to portray. The story takes on twists and turns and its really thrilling. I didn't end the way I wanted it to but that's not a criticism.
Brilliant book and I can't recommend it highly enough.
It was weirdly written, bouncing from one place to another in the timeline. It was a predictable story as well, and I didn't feel that the characters had too much depth.
The husband seemed your stereotypical controlling older partner and the female lead just seemed like the regular sad sap who does what her husband tells her, but finally snaps.
I am sure many enjoyed it, and I'm pleased they did, but this fell short of the mark for me personally.
To read the continued ramblings of the mothers dazed confusions were slightly unbelievable, boring and miserable, however the plot was good and I find myself wanting a longer more explained ending but I will make do with what was given.
