's review

bookshelves: dnf, 2017

DNF @ 34%

I've been trying for several days now, to get into this book, but I found myself bored every time I picked it up.

I honestly can't pinpoint one specific thing that made me not want to pick up this book, it honestly, was the whole thing. I couldn't connect with any of the characters and even though we were a third of the way through, nothing seemed to have happened.

I also didn't like the way it would switch between characters. Rather than doing it via chapters like most books do, it happened during the chapter, with no indication that it was going to happen. Granted, I did had an ARC copy of this book so maybe that was just an issue with the copy I got, but even still, it made my reading experience bad.

Thanks to Netgalley and Penguin UK - Michael Joseph, for giving me the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review. Sorry I didn't enjoy it!

Jo OMG, I felt exactly the same way about this book. It had all the hallmarks of a good thriller, but it just bored me to tears.
