Livro pertencente ao Clube BlogRing do My Imaginarium. Obrigada à Cata pelo empréstimo!

As opiniões que li recentemente acerca deste livro fizeram-me comprá-lo e lê-lo quase de imediato. Caso contrário, muito provavelmente, ter-me-ia passado despercebido.

Desaparecida saiu há 4 anos e penso não ter feito grande sucesso. De tal forma com o consegui por uma preço baratinho na Feira do Livro de Lisboa. Nas livrarias online ele também está com um preço apetecível e acessível a muitas carteiras. E digo isto porque vale mesmo a pena comprá-lo e lê-lo.

Confesso que o livro me tocou bastante

Leitura que nos prende desde o início e que mexe com os nervos de qualquer pessoa, especialmente de quem tem filhos pequenos.
É o segundo livro que leio da autora e uma vez mais fiquei rendida, pois consegue agarrar-nos de tal forma que se torna quase impossível abandonar a leitura.
O final é deveras surpreendente, garanto que não estava mesmo nada à espera de um desfecho daqueles...
Os capítulos não são excessivamente longos e por isso não se tornam maçadores. A autora provou uma vez mais ser uma

It was a pretty good read ... not a straight line story, I guess. It jumped around telling you how you got to this point once you were already there. The ending had a bit of a twist but nothing I didn't see coming after a certain point. Sometimes there's comfort in knowing when the author removes the character's primary suspect, the real person who dunnit has got to be a character you're already familiar with and not some random new person out of the blue - well, I guess that would be far more o ...more

Quando me inscrevi para a leitura deste livro no clube, não me apercebi que a autora era a mesma de “Viagem sem Regresso”, um livro que li como adolescente, e do qual não tinha gostado muito. Convenci-me que era muito nova na altura, que não estava habituada a relatos mais violentos, e foi assim que iniciei a leitura de ‘Desaparecida’.

A organização da narrativa está, na minha opinião, muito bem conseguida. Dá a ideia de que tudo acontece de forma rápida e confusa, tal como a personagem principal

Mel Stenning has been a victim most of her life. Adopted by very conventional parents, she rebelled (but hated herself for doing it), getting into all sorts of situations and ultimately ending up in Australia, pregnant with no chance of having anything to do with her daughter Poppy's father. Returning to England she's a single mother, working for a living, finding it hard to cope, when she meets Simon. Never really convinced that Simon loves her, and constantly obsessed that he's remained involv ...more

Este livro ter-me-ia passado despercebido se não fossem os comentários de outras bloggers a elogiá-lo. Quando li a sinopse fiquei muito curiosa e quando descobri que é da mesma autora de "Viagem Sem Regresso", um livro que li há muitos anos atrás e que adorei, não tive dúvidas que tinha que o ler.
Ainda assim, nunca imaginei que fosse uma história tão intensa e que eu me envolvesse tanto nela ao ponto de chegar a ter medo enquanto a lia!

Looking forward to reading many more books by this author. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The end was confusing just because of how Si was portrayed throughout the book so for him to be innocent was unexpected

Very good. Very suspenseful without being too gory or gratuitous. A little far-fetched but still within the realms of reality at a stretch.

Old locked doors, a fat man appearing on the stairs in the newlyweds creaky renovated warehouse, a missing daughter, a strange neighbour, a new marriage and a new baby, and the old cliche that the truth is not always how it appears no matter how strong the evidence. A whodunnit with a twist.
A.Z. Green
Very creepy thriller. You expect the killer to be someone and it surprises you at every turn. The big twist at the end, I was not expecting and usually I'm good at guessing. It is something you'll probably only read once because once you know the twist, it's not worth reading again, except maybe once more so you can see all the hidden clues. Still, worth a read.
Babete
Um livro que vale a pena! " Excitante e de leitura compulsiva" como diz a critica.
Arttemizza
Apesar do inicio muito pouco cativante o final deu para superar tudo resto!
Diana Barbosa
Não conhecia a autora mas adorei o livro! Tem um final surpreendente!
Patricia
Um final diferente do que esperamos inicialmente.
Dorothy
Good but I figured out the twist before the end
Trina Hollis
Whodunnit with a twist very good.
