I know that it has been the longest time since I have posted anything, let alone a book review, so I am finally getting myself together and have one here for you today!
About the Book:
Title: I See You
Author: Clare Mackintosh
Published: July 2016
Source: Audible Subscription
Length: 10 hours, 59 minutes
Narrator: Rachel Atkins
Synopsis: Every morning and evening, Zoe Walker takes the same route to the train station, waits at a certain place on the platform, finds her favorite spot in the car, never suspecting that someone is watching her…
It all starts with a classified ad. During her commute home one night, while glancing through her local paper, Zoe sees her own face staring back at her, a grainy photo along with a phone number and listing for a website called findtheone.com.
Other women begin appearing in the same ad, a different one every day, and Zoe realizes they’ve become the victims of increasingly violent crimes—including rape and murder. With the help of a determined cop, she uncovers the ad’s twisted purpose…a discovery that turns her paranoia into full-blown panic. For now Zoe is sure that someone close to her has set her up as the next target.
And now that man on the train—the one smiling at Zoe from across the car—could be more than just a friendly stranger. He could be someone who has deliberately chosen her and is ready to make his next move…
Rating | ♥♥♥♥♥
I came across this book quite a while ago, and the synopsis got me, I knew I had to get it. I was hooked from the first chapter, by not only the words themselves, but the narrator reading me the story.
This book was right up my alley from a crime thriller point of view. It was suspenseful with twists and turns all over the place. At one point I thought that I knew who was behind all the events that were happening to the women, but I was completely off base. All I will say is, THAT ENDING!
From a character perspective, the main character Zoe did get on my nerves a little bit by being super paranoid, but when I thought about her circumstances, her paranoia did make sense.
The characters were all multi-dimensional and exciting. There were a few, however that I didn’t trust in the beginning. The more the story went on, the more their true personalities came to light and the more layers were uncovered. I really love that about characters in stories.
This story was fast-paced and exciting, there was always something happening which kept me intrigued, I did not find myself getting bored at all, which was fantastic!
I have see a number of books by Clare Mackintosh, but I thought that I would wait to finish I See You before deciding on whether or not to read more of her books, I think it is pretty obvious that I loved it, and will definitely be picking up others, and I cannot wait to get them onto my shelves!!
I gave this book five stars! It is definitely a new favourite 🙂
