Ripe for the plucking.
Come on then, boys.
Goodness, gracious me. This one grabbed me by the jugular and would not let go.
Tuesday is just a tiny waif of a goth girl, or better still a goth ghost. She lives and manoeuvres in London's underground, hidden in a network o ...more
Oh wow! What a total surprise this book is. Absolutely fantastically brilliant and definitely one of the best books I have read in 2016 so far. This one really intrigued me on every level and really touched on some new plot ideas that are so original. I absolutely freaking loved it.
So basic plot for you. We meet a "ghost" of a young woman who makes the hidden tunnels under London her base and home, she is super technology savvy and u ...more
Fast paced and easy to follow, so has a bit of a feel of Young Adult fiction to it, but not being a huge fan of YA, I still loved this, and would say it can be enjoyed by those who love adult thrillers too.
Although there is heavy subject matter covered, there was also a hint of dark humour too, so I felt the overall ...more
Metropolitan police detectives Loss and Stone can barely believe what's going on, when a gang of rapists and drug pushers is taken down - effortlessly and in seconds - by a tiny wisp of a Goth girl, who films the encounter and posts the footage to social media. Her name is Tuesday.
In the days that follow, Tuesday emerges from the shadows like a wraith, strikes with the deadly accuracy of a cobra, and then vanishes ...more
I got this a couple of years ago so I'm really late to the party but now I see what all the hoopla was about. While I try to shape my thoughts into something vaguely coherent, just know this was brilliant. Read it in a day because I could not put it down. Where, oh wher ...more
I need to come down from this book. What an exceptional story and brilliant writing.
Tuesday is living in the hidden underground and tunnels that hide beneath the streets of London. She is not your average girl sleeping rough, though! She is seeking vengeance against the likes of men that have contributed to her horrible past.
I don't want to give any spoilers - you can read the synopsis.
All I can say is - READ THIS BOOK! Fast paced, brutal, page-turning, and an amazing storyline.
It blew me aw ...more

It is a revenge thriller. It is also book full of social commentary done in a way that challenges the mind. There are thrills and spills, dark violence (hence I imagine why it is marketed as an adult book despite the young adult main protagonist) but also an awful lot ...more
Tuesday is not your typical protagonist. She is an anti hero who you find yourself immediately drawn to. A broken soul with a kick-ass drive for retribution, you cannot help b ...more

Tuesday looks like a goth, someone who the gangs think will be easy prey. How wrong they are. She shows them that true strength comes from wisdom, planning and resourcefulness. Not snorting/injecting drugs or raping girls for fun. She shows these gangs that actions have consequences and that punish ...more
It's not just a story about a vigilante extraordinaire (I saw a bit of Daredevil in her) but it's an brief education about hidden London which was enlightening!
The book is addictive, I just wanted to keep reading to find out what happens next ...more
I really, really enjoyed this novel. I found it very engaging and it was great to enter another world. Woven into this story was the concept of the possibility of a society living underground in London whom the ordinary population living above the surface are blissfully unawar ...more

and then once in a while, something comes along that is genuinely fresh and sparky and alive and utterly, breathtakingly compelling and I find I’ve run out of adjectives…

The story to start with felt more like a book that a young adult audience would like but as the book went on I think young adults and adults a like will really enjoy it.
The storyline in itself is very intriguing as the question on everyone's lips including the reader is who exactly is Tuesday and why has she taken it upon herself to become some sort of vigilante a ...more
Who is Tuesday? She is a sharp witted, kick ass anti heroine.
Why she does what she does is revealed in short snappy chapters as well as her back story, you have a fantastic description of London on a level you don't often get to read about.
I was drawn in straight away by this book, and she got under my skin...it's a well paced, great thought out plot.
The characters were just brilliant. Tackling difficult subjects without being too morose.
Tuesday is a character that I will carry with m ...more
