Alice Salmon è piena di passione e di vita. Ha un lavoro che la appassiona, una città come Londra ai suoi piedi, molti interessi e molti amici. E Alice, come ognuno di noi, ha un segreto. Solo che non può più tenerlo per sé. O forse non vuole, anche se rivelarlo sarebbe pericoloso. Un giorno Alice fa ritorno alla cittadina in cui è cresciuta e dove ha studiato, e la mattin ...more

"O que ela deixou" não é , quanto a mim, uma leitura viciante. É sim , uma leitura que ronda o factual; que tem tudo a ver com o tipo de comunicação que flui hoje em dia!
Nos tempos que correm, a internet é um gigantesco Fórum, onde se conta, comenta e partilha -- fala-se do que se faz, do que se fez e do que se há-de ou não vir a fazer!
São dores que se libertam, alegrias que se celebram, opiniões que se trocam...

Aprendemos! Mudamos! Melhoramos! Pioramos! Evoluímos! Involuímos!.

I gave up on this one at 40%, just couldn’t go on any more. 25 year old Alice Salmon’s body was found floating in a river and her story is told “mostly” by University Professor Jeremy Cooke who tries to rebuild an image of her life by collecting her digital footprint. At the start of the story we don’t know the connection between Jeremy and Alice, although as the book goes on it does become apparent.

The whole story is told by way of emails, blog posts, texts etcetera from many different viewpoin

Thank you, NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review.

Review also on Fiction Jungle

I just find it incredibly pleasing when an author can so easily pull you in and yet deliberately not show you an absolute picture of a story. In a intricate way we discover what happened to ordinary Alice, who she surrounded herself with, how we are led to believe, it was mysterious death.

You shouldn’t hesitate on picking this one up because of its format

Who is Alice Salmon?
Student. Journalist. Daughter.
Lover of late nights, hater of deadlines.

That girl who drowned last year.

Gone doesn’t mean forgotten.
Everyone’s life leaves a trace behind.
But it’s never the whole story.


We’ll all have to be strong for them now: your lovely dad with his mad sweaters and that way he has of saying Al-ice, pausing between the ‘Al’ and the ‘ice’ as if he’s asking a question, and your mum, your gorgeous mum, a one woman dynamo, who you’re an absolute spitting image

This novel takes as its starting point the death of a young woman, called Alice Salmon. It demonstrates the way people communicate now via the internet; feeling utterly free to comment about the most personal events. In fact, the book virtually begins with tweets, speculating on the fact that police are down by the river and, gradually, we learn that the body found is that of Alice. Alice was a student at Southampton University and had recently began working in the media, as a journalist in loca ...more

An absolutely brilliantly constructed story, compelling and actually really quite scary when you can see, all in one go, how much of our lives are just out there in the ether for people to see. The little things and the big, the people who know you and who do not but will speak as if they do, even the smallest of details that you would not think twice about. When Alice Salmon dies, Jeremy Cook starts putting together her life and death through a series of interviews, online information and perso ...more

Alice Salmon is a twenty five year old journalist. She dies. We follow various accounts of her, some first person diary entries, others are twitter posts, phone messages, online forum chatter, letters and all kinds of other third party accounts of her. We hear from her lovers, her friends and family. Her old professor, Jeremy Cook takes it upon himself to investigate what happened to Alice. He looks at her online presence and accounts of her from the real world. Over the course of the book, with ...more

Some books are easy to review and the words come naturally... unfortunately not this one... I feel like I need a thesaurus just to start the opening sentence.! Firstly the primary narrator Cooke (Cock) made my skin crawl.. the most unpleasant, predatory slimy man with a pompous attitude didn't help matters much. All the characters were pretty unlikeable in their own unique way, and whilst in other books I have actually enjoyed reading about characters I despised... this one is not one of them. A ...more

Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for an opportunity to read an advance copy of What She Left. Closer to 2 1/2 stars. I was attracted to the concept of this book, but I didn't feel particularly engaged as I read it. Alice Salmon -- a 25 year old journalist -- drowns in a river in Southampton on a night of heavy drinking. What She Left is meant to be a reconstruction of Alice's life and death as seen through the writings of many people in Alice's life -- including tweets, emails, diaries, ...more

"Wer war Alice" ist mir bereits vor dem Erscheinungstag ins Auge gesprungen und somit stand für mich sehr schnell fest, dass ich dem Buch unbedingt eine Chance geben wollte. Da die Kurzbeschreibung einfach großartig klang, habe ich hier eine spannende und ereignisreiche Geschichte erwartet und muss sagen, dass ich dies zum Großteil bekommen habe - wenn auch etwas anders, als zuvor erwartet.

Die Geschichte ist nämlich kein klassischer Roman, sondern eine Zusammensetzung aus Briefen, Emails und Co.

This review appears on Happy Indulgence! Check it out for more reviews!

What an absolutely frustrating book with deplorable characters! My emotions ran high while reading What She Left, a thriller where a girl has died drowned in a river. What results is a media storm, social media commentary and the vested interest of Professor Jeremy Cooke who collects all mentions of Alice’s life and death, which frankly, wasn’t that interesting.

I do enjoy a story told using creative mediums, and this one fea

This novel is written quite differently: telling the story of Alice Salmon's life and death through diary entries, blogs, twitter posts, emails, letters, text messages and police interviews. One of the main characters in the book, Professor Cooke, is putting together all these pieces of information to publish an account of Alice's life. He comes across as being obsessed with Alice and is a little creepy and quite clearly crossing the line between appropriate teacher-student relationships.

This book opens with the discovery of the body of Alice Salmon, a 25 year old journalist. The police treat her death as suspicious, not ruling out suicide, murder or accidental death. The narrator, a professor at the Southampton university that she attended, decides to reconstruct her life from her online posts, text messages, photos, friends posts, diary entries, etc. The book has a slow start and is somewhat difficult to follow, as it switches back and forth between the various entries and let ...more

This was a strange read. Interesting. But strange nonetheless. The entire book is told through news articles, tweets, texts, voicemails, and letters. There is absolutely no narrator due to us only getting this story through ad hoc modes of media. The, I guess you call him, MC (Old Cookie) is an anthropology professor who makes it his goal to recreate Alice's life before her death, and unearth previously unknown facts and secrets about her and those close to her.

I almost put this book down several times and struggled with it on MANY levels. So I’ll be blunt.

1. Quite frankly Alice’s life wasn’t all that interesting.
2. Given the first point, Professor Cooke’s interest in Alice’s life is incredibly creepy. His interest becomes obsessive and it’s almost difficult to know how much of his narrative to believe given the way he justifies his interest. As for their ‘relationship’, I would have preferred suppositions about Alice’s parentage to be true.

When I give a low rating to a book that some of my GR friends loved I fear appearing an awkward & nit-picking churl (nits of course being something you’d expect churls to have a lot of) or an old pedant, especially when the nits involve health-care or sailing. But it’s even more discomforting when I want to promote a book to field-marshal status that some of my discerning friends gave but a star or two @ most. But that’s my response to What She Left.

I usually like multiple POVs, and I don't even mind jumping around in time, as long it's made clear, but I just felt that was taken a step too far in WHAT SHE LEFT. I read a lot of crime fiction, and can generally follow the flow of a story quite well, but I felt rather confused with this book at multiple points, particularly the ending.

I think the premise of What She Left is good and I was excited by the idea of the epistolary format, yet somehow the story didn't quite live up to it's potential for me. There seemed to be more focus on Professor Cooke, Alice's former tutor, than on Alice and her life. I also struggled with the scattered timeline and fairly slow pace

A special thank you to Simon & Schuster and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

T. R. Richmond delivers a clever contemporary psychological suspense, WHAT SHE LEFT, centered around social media—love, obsession, and revenge. What happened to Alice Salmon? A mysterious, dark, and intriguing debut.

Alice Salmon is a journalist. Twenty- five years old, her body is found washed up on the riverbank in Southampton, south of London—creating a media frenzy. A music fan, bookworm,

Den här boken blev jag sugen på direkt när jag såg den, förra sommaren. Mitt intresse svalnade något när andra skrev att den var uppbyggd med brev, dagböcker och liknande. Ett grepp som jag inte alls gillar. Till slut bestämde jag mig ändå för att jag ville läsa den. Läs mer på min blogg

When I finished this book and logged into Goodreads to leave my review, I was shocked to see the low rating. I almost wondered if I had somehow built the book up to be more than it was, but after taking a day away from it I can say, without a doubt, this was a phenomenal book. Easily a 4.5 star book for me, but it may just be one of those books that you either love or you hate.

What She Left is a very original crime novel. Recommended to fans of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl and Jane Shemilt’s Daughter, but still unique enough to be almost in a field of it’s own.

The book is made up entirely of letters, diary entries, essays, police interview transcripts, social media exchanges, emails, newspaper articles, blog posts, etc. It isn’t your typical dialogue and narration. Because of this, you feel like you’re a part of the investigation and being given clues piece by piece,
