did not like it
bookshelves: contemporary-fiction, most-disappointing, read-in-2011, suspense, secrets
Read in September, 2011

I was looking forward to this, hoping it was going to be the "stunning piece of modern gothic" that John Connolly claimed it was on the book jacket. In my view it did not come close to living up to that description.

There is nothing of reality in this story, this is purely escapists fiction, there is an element of suspense that kept me reading but the climax, as well as much of the story, was not realistic. It was an easy read, with a lot of dialog and can be finished in a sitting or two. But honestly I would have preferred spending my time reading something else.
