Lately, this "multiple personalities" thing has been overused. Anyway, a passable reading for bus stations, waiting rooms or any time you don't feel like using your brain too much.
However, although I have some more books of Mary Higgins Clark, I think I will donate them all to Salvation Army. Not so bad, lately I was looking for space in my library. :)

A little girl is kidnapped at age four. Two years later, she is returned to her family. When tragedy strikes during her college years, those horrible two years come back to her in the form of the alter personalities that protected her during that time. She finds herself charged with murder, and her big sister fights to defend her in the hopeless case.

This book is one of my favorites by Mary Higgins Clark. She keeps you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages until you're finished. As usua

Almost as bad as the other Higgins Clark I read. Characters were made of cardboard and female frailty seems to indicate their inner goodness. Too many "almosts" to make me roll my eyes (as in someone almost does something or sees something or gets something that would reveal the bad guy). All in all a weak and cheap book.

Totally suspenseful! Another great one by Clark. You really can't go wrong with these novels. They are easy reads with twisting, exciting plots...especially this one.

اضطراب تعدد الشخصية الفصامي موضوع مستهلك في الروايات.لكن قليلًا ما يستخدم بشكل مقنع، مما يُحتسَب في صالح الكاتبة.. ليس القصد أن هذه الرواية قامت بتصوير تعدد الشخصيات بطريقة مثالية.. حيث أنها لم تخلَ من بعض الإشكاليات التي تتنافى مع ما تصوّره كتب اللعلم النفسي المتخصصة في هذا المجال.. لكن ذلك قد يُعزى إلى قلّة الأبحاث العلمية المتوافرة في وقت إصدار هذه الرواية قبل ما يقارب العشرين سنة مضت..

I became super obsessed with Mary Higgins Clark mysterys in 1994 -1995(Grade 7 ) Although probably not as obsessed as I used to be, MHC's books are still a warm hug on a cold day. It's my mom's fault, we had previously read "I'll be seeing you "and as a result she went back to the bookstore and bought up whatever was there. I would have to say that no matter how many times I 've read "All Around the Town " it's never dimmed the 5 star rating for this book.. I absolutely loved the multiple viewpo ...more

I've read all of the MHC books that are out on paperback and I really enjoy them and they are a fast read. I did learn my lesson about making sure my husband was home when I read them b/c I got a little creeped out one night when I was home alone and the book I was reading had a character stalking her outside of her house. I just picked a few of my favorites for my bookshelf so it didn't get too crowded.

This story is about a young woman who was abducted at the age of four and horribly abused for two years. The reader is spared the details of this abuse while it's happening (which I appreciated!) and the story flashes forward to when she is 21 and a fresh trauma in her life causes effects from the abuse to surface in the form of the protagonist having multiple personalities. A murder occurs and we are left to discover "who done it." (One of her personalities, the abusers, or someone else?) We al ...more

Mary Higgins Clark weaves a complicated world around her characters, that is slowly unraveled as the novel progresses. I was completely taken in by this sometimes dark and always tense world, and this was a real page-turner for me.

A family is torn apart when their youngest daughter, Laurie, is stolen from the front yard. Parents can't function, and an older sister blames herself. Fast forward to the future, and a family reunited - together but unable to process and put aside the past. New trage

Adoro Mary Higgins Clark da sempre!
Nel suo thriller del 1992, In giro per la città, gli effetti degli anni trascorsi dalla stesura sono evidenti. Si parla ancora di macchine da scrivere che si alternano al computer. Una nota insolita, ma che non compromette la storia che Mary Higgins Clark ci racconta. Una storia molto triste e sconvolgente, fatta di pedofilia e canti gospel, sette religiose e indagini da discutere in aula.

Sembra che il lavoro più diffuso nei romanzi di Mary Higgins Clark sia q

All Around the Town had a lot of different parts. First, when Laurie was 4 years old, she was kidnapped and held for 2 years. When she returned back to her family, she didn't tell anyone about the people she was with or what happened during the past 2 years. Now at present day, Laurie and Sarah's parents have just been killed in a car accident. Laurie is sure that it was her fault, even though it wasn't, which brings out her multiple personalities. Then one evening, Laurie's professor is killed ...more

I could not give to this book more than 2 stars.
I think that it was an easy to read book. I usually love to read thrillers to try to understand what's going on but with this book I understood the most important scoop about Laurie almost 100 pages before the end! I did not understand who the killer was ( because, honestly, it could have been anyone), but when I arrived at the end of the book I was not surprised at all.
What let me finish the book was the phsycology of Laurie. Blonde girl with a lo

This was a riveting story of the after affects of childhood trauma and abuse. It was a chilling reminder of how untreated trauma can affect someone dramatically while they seem to have a normal life.

It was also, in a way, a comedy of errors, as people deliberately didn't pass on comments (I'm not a gossip, says one old lady) or figure something isn't important so it is ignored. In some instances its just plain lack of attention to detail, but it gets our young heroine arrested and charged with m

It was great! As always Mary Higgins Clark never disappoints me! A great mystery writer who holds your total attention without excess embellishments.

The story again had an exciting twist - with good characters . It's refreshing to see the good guy win and to close the book with a smile.

The subject mattter of this book was disturbing. It was difficult to read about a 3 year old child being sexually abused and being subjected to the grown woman living through a nightmare of memeories. I skipped pages to avoid the imagages and concentrated more on Sandra and her love interest. Not a great book and I am a huge fan of the this author. I would not recommend this book to anybody!

Must say, this book suprised me. It's easy to read but still captivating. Mary Higgins Clarks exploration of human psyche through Laurie's multiple personalities disorder was amazing for me. Story itself is fluent and understandable.

The back cover of my edition of this book has a quote from the Los Angeles Times that reads in part “Mary Higgins Clark has become the Grande Dame of American thriller writing” and I must say this book definitely proves it.

This was an engaging page-turner that kept you guessing. The killer was unexpected but not impossible. Like any great who-done-it after finishing the book I went back and reread the clues, silently cursing myself for not figuring it out sooner. (view spoiler)

I picked this up for a quick read, looking forward to a thriller as an antidote to my last book which was a tough read emotionally. The contrast couldn't have been greater - it was badly written, with shallow stereotype characters and coincidental plotting.
I gave it two stars because I at least got caught up towards the end but ultimately unsatisfying. Won't bother with Mary Higgins Clark again. Amazed at the plaudits she has.
