Very hard to write this as Katherine Webb is one of my favourite authors but I did not like this book at all. I found the book to be boring and it didn’t grip me at all. The characters had no depth and I felt like the whole story was just narrating though. Even though the tragedy is immense I just felt that it didn’t go deep into it. Frances bored me; I was shocked when I found out she was 24 I thought she was a teenager. There were so many plot holes. I felt like Johanas just didn’t tie in and while I get why he was found guilty immediately was just meh. No OMG what happened next. Was he, or wasn’t he? I looked back on my written review for this book and that was all I had written so yeah; this book is a huge no for me. Please follow and like us:
I absolutely loved this book. It was one of those books that I could not put down and I had to finish it. I found the characters interesting, believable and with a personality. There were neither saccharine nor distant. The plot I felt was good and kept me intrigued until the end. I did guess what had happened, but I wanted to see how it would pan out. The book had just the right amount of story, mystery and emotions. I loved the ending as well. It was one of those rare books where none of the characters annoyed me. Amy, I felt was a reliable, believable character. Her story had tragedy but not pity. Aurelia, I loved her character, she was dramatic but loveable. She also had a weakness, but she didn’t let it slow her down and she did what she wanted. Again, no pity here. Mrs Rivertorp, I am such a fan of hers. I think she is one of those dragon type ladies but has a heart underneath. The ending was good, I loved how in the end the backstory story of Amy’s didn’t matter.
