5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless, 6 July 2014
This review is from: Her (Kindle Edition)
With many novels, it takes a couple of chapters for me to feel at home and settle in to the book. With Harriet Lane's writing, the minute I begin reading, I fall through a trap-door, straight into another world. The habits of the characters and the detail of their landscapes are served to us with such skill, I feel as though I'm already a part of their lives before the story begins. Her use of words, and her control of language is completely faultless.

The book exposes the subtleties of an unquiet mind, and it does so in such a gradual, chilling way, it's impossible not to be hypnotised by Nina and her fractured view of the world. As Nina's character evolves, there is an almost dark fairy-tale element to the story which is so utterly compelling. As I reached the last few pages, I couldn't understand why I felt such a sense of dread about what Nina might do next ... or how the story could possibly end. As it is, the end is just perfect. I felt a wave of goosebumps roll across my flesh, and I actually put my hand to my mouth. And then, of course, I realised that it couldn't have ended any other way. This book is a masterclass in the art of storytelling.

This is a true thriller, and absolutely, without doubt, my book of the year.
