i found this book quite creepy actually!It was not at all what i was expecting when i started reading it, but i was quite pleasantly surprised,right up to the end, where for the second time with an ellen mccarthy book i was dissapointed by the ending.but that shouldnt put anyone off reading it, its a bit of a psychological thriller type book for the most part and very interesting plot i thought!

Took me a while to get into, not my usual type of book but part 3 onwards was a page turner and could not wait to get to the end!

I really loved this book. The plot is complex and well made, and the end is unpredictable. I recomend it. It's a bit creepy, but it's one of my favourite books. ...more
