Victorian based GP turned writer Susi Fox has made her presence known on the Australian publishing scene with her debut novel, Mine. With the main crux of the novel revolving around a possible stolen a baby and one new mother’s fight to reclaim her baby, Mine is one emotional based tale. I am going to say straight up this one of the best psychological fiction based novels I have read for this year and I do not think Mine will be leaving my side for quite so

This is the story of Sasha and Mark, who have been married for many years. As the story begins Sasha has given birth to a baby boy prematurely, and her and her baby are being cared for in a hospital that Sasha didn't want to use. As the story progresses Sasha begins to believe that her baby has been switched, but the doctors and nurses dismiss her claims, telling her she is mentally ill.
Sasha becomes distrustful of everyone around her, even Mark,bur is determined to find out the truth.

Flipping heck! I was so not prepared for the rollercoaster ride of emotions ‘Mine’ took me on!

Sasha wakes up in hospital after an emergency c-section. When she is finally shown her baby, she’s convinced this tiny infant is not hers. Nobody believes her, not even her husband. With everyone against her, what can Sasha do? Let herself be convinced this child is hers? Pretend to love a child she feels isn’t hers? Or keep searching for the baby she believes truly belongs to her?

O pior é que nada disso aconteceu e Sasha viu-se no pior hospital da cidade numa cesariana de emergência. Não se lembra de quase nada do parto e pior...não reconhece o filho que teve.

Assim que li a sinopse do livro de estreia de Susi Fox, "Meu", fiquei ansiosa por lê-lo. Haverá mulher que já foi mãe ou pretende sê-lo que nunca pensou que o seu filho poderia ser trocado na maternidade? Eu, quando tive o meu filho, não tirei os olhos de cima dele um único momento. É realmente aflitivo pensar que os bebés podem ser trocados... E é precisamente este sentimento de aflição e desespero que a autora consegue incutir tão bem ao longo das páginas, de tal forma, que se torna im

Wow I really did enjoy this book. It was a heartbreaking read, it was certainly one of the saddest books I’ve read. I felt terrible for Sash throughout the book and how no one was listening to her. I didn’t know what to believe and my opinion on whether she had the right baby or not changed throughout the book. I did find it really sad at the end and really felt for Sash but I’m glad despite it all she did get her happy ending in the end. I’m glad she got the chance to finally be a mother. It wa ...more

Já é raro ler um livro em 2 dias, mas este foi. Gostei imenso, manteve-me sempre intrigada, enervou-me um bocado, mas isso só me agarrou ainda mais.
Sendo uma estreia da autora, deixa-me muito curiosa com o que vem mais por aí.

I was rather unprepared for how completely absorbing and incredibly unsettling this novel was. I thought I was in for an emotional read – and it was! – but the psychological thriller aspect caught me by surprise in the very best of ways. I’m pretty fussy with thrillers, particularly the domestic drama/psychological ones, but Mine ticked all of my boxes soundly. What a literary talent Susi Fox is! This is a cracking debut that is not only engaging but also intelligent, both in terms of its themes ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Netgalley.

Mine is written by Susi Fox who is medical in background. This really showed through and to get all the details correct, I think it was important.

Sash gives birth via an emergency C-section, and when she goes to see her baby, she is convinced that he (the scans said she was having a girl) wasn't hers.

But staff in the hospital don't believe her, neither does her Dad, neither does her partner. We, as readers, just aren't sure!

Bueno, lo cierto es que ha sido un thriller que se me ha quedado un poco corto. En mi opinión le falta trama, que brilla por su ausencia. El 90% del libro es Sasha, la protagonista, dándole vueltas a la idea de que el bebé que le han dado no es el suyo, pero no avanza hacia ningún lado, simplemente se obsesiona y no ocurre nada más, ni pruebas, ni giros ni nada. Hay recuerdos de su pasado que han tenido momentos algo más interesantes que la trama en si. Además el giro final (el único que hay en ...more

I've read some bad books this year but this may just be the worst of the lot. The initial premise is solid but the way it plays out is so so ludicrous. I did not believe one bit of the hospital experience described in the book (I can't believe this was written by a GP!) and after dragging on for an eternity with nothing happening it winds up in the last 50 or so pages with enough ridiculous plot twists to make an episode of the Bold and the Beautiful seem realistic in comparison.

Un libro que desde el principio te engancha, aunque creo que se repite mucho en varias ocasiones y da la sensación que lo hace para rellenar. Al llegar al final es cuando se pone interesante y creo que lo hace de una manera rápida y predecible. No es un gran libro pero entretiene. Si te gustan las típicas películas de domingo tarde de Antena 3 seguro que te gusta.

4/5: Empecé con miedo este libro tras las opiniones tan dispares que escuchaba sobre él y a mi el libro me ha sorprendido gratamente. Es una historia espeluznante, escalofriante y en el que hay que demostrar entereza para ponerse en la piel de la protagonista. Es un libro que si estás embarazada o próxima a ello, recomiendo que no lo leáis porque puede dar una mijilla de trauma. La historia transcurre en un hospital durante una semana en la que vemos como Sasha, le han hecho la cesárea antes de ...more

Full disclosure -- I read Mine in a very early manuscript form. However, this version is so different! The end twist is different, and several storylines that occurred at the mother-baby unit no longer happen. Here we get to see Sasha's husband Mark's POV as well. I felt like I was reading a new book. The only thing that was the same for me between both versions, was they both gripped me totally. Which is saying something the second time around as I thought I knew who'd 'dunnit'. What this adds ...more

Wow, what an utterly gripping, chilling and thought provoking read this was! I like twisty books that keep me guessing and this book certainly did that. I thought this was well written and it kept my interest from the first page to the last, all I can say is, it makes you wonder what is really going on in other people's lives and minds.

Me daba un poco de miedo este libro por el tema, pero al ver que a dos buenas amigas les había gustado decidí animarme a leerlo.

La narración es en primera persona a dos voces, lo que me parece un acierto. Sasha nos irá contando todo lo que sucede desde que da a luz, y de la mano de Mark se nos irán desgranando hechos ocurridos en el pasado.

El libro me ha gustado mucho y me ha mantenido enganchada e intrigada durante toda la lectura. Según de iban conociendo datos variaban mis ideas sobre lo que

Mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand it was a fairly interesting psychological thriller with a good storyline. But on the other hand it was slightly repetitive in the narrative for the first third of the story and too many parts were implausible.
It was hard to know whether to feel sorry for Sasha or whether to feel totally unsympathetic due to her lack of feelings for her newborn. So I found it hard to connect with her character.
The pace was steady but for me it lacked excitement an
