3.0 out of 5 stars Good - but not as good as I'd been led to expect, 22 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sister (Paperback)
This is a fairly dark and emotional book about the relationship and differences between two sisters: the older and more sensible Beatrice, and the younger and more carefree Tess, who is pregnant and has been reported missing.

I read Sister quickly, in just a couple of sittings, keen to find out what had happened to Tess - but along the way I found some of the characters rather unbelievable, particularly some of the 'professional' medical staff who I just can't imagine behaving or communicating in the way depicted. There are also sections where the novel seemed to flag a bit, and I found myself trying to race through those sections towards a more interesting part.

Although overall I enjoyed this book, I was left feeling a bit short-changed. I think that's partly down to one of the twists at the end, and partly down to over-inflated expectations of the book. With so many glowing reviews of Sister, combined with the label 'psychological thriller', I was set up for a read that the book just didn't quite deliver.
