Plodding and ultimately unsatisfying

  • Jun 8, 2009
I began reading this book with high hopes, for the idea of the plot (a woman leaving her home for unkown reasons, and being determined to possibly have some sort of mental problem) seemed very interesting. Unfortunately, the longer I read the book, the more boring it became. The action (if you could call it that) moved at a snail's pace, and the underlying "mystery", the deaths of several young women, was capable of very easy solution.

When the plot finally came to an end, and the suspected murderer was unmasked, it was just "ho hum, I knew it all along". Rather than end the book on the note of discovery, the author had to attach a very sappy ending, which made a poor book even worse. I definitely do not recommend this book, but I will say that my wife enjoyed it very much, and were she a reviewer, would give it 5 stars. Perhaps it's just a woman's thing, and I "didn't get it".

What did you think of this review?
