Oh wow I could not put this book down, or should I say my kindle as I decided to download this one. I would also say that it is a page turner but with said technology it got my finger swiping like mad instead.
Imagine yourself on a busy commute home, travelling on the underground you happen to be reading a newspaper where you suddenly see a photo of yourself and a phone number underneath. You would be really freaked out eh? Well this is what happened to Zoe in the book and then she notices a different women the next day and this goes on and on. All these women become victims of different crimes and it's only a matter of time until Zoe faces hers. It's as if someone is watching these women and tracking their every move so with every commute home or anywhere that Zoe travels she seems to be in danger.
The lead character is a divorced mum of two and settled in a new relationship. She has a good friend and neighbour who owns a string of cafes, a concerned boss and she is still in contact with her ex. Is it a stranger following her or someone she may know? It really has you thinking and trying to work out why someone should target her, just going along with her normal life.
It is one of those stories where you do start questioning everyone she knows and then think 'no it can't be'. If you like a gripping thriller of a book then this is definitely for you. The theory of what is happening is quite a scary one and I don't want to give too much away. The ending is just amazing with a huge twist so it is well worth a read.
This is the second novel by Clare Mackintosh and is a number one bestseller. Her first novel 'I Let You Go' was a Sunday Times bestseller and also selected on Richard and Judy's Book Club. It was a winning title as part of Loose Women's readers vote for summer 2015 so her novels are really quite popular. I am reading her first novel now and yep it is really good so far. I will let you know what I think of that one too.
Don't have nightmares though, no it's not that bad but it 'I See You' is pretty tense, you will just keep reading to find out what happens. Let me know what you thought if you have read this book. I will pop a link (affiliated) at the end of this post for the book at Amazon.
Thank you for reading today. I haven't reviewed a book for a while, mainly because I haven't had a lot of time to read one so I really enjoyed having some book time. I find reading so relaxing, yes even in the middle of a major crime going on, weird eh? I think reading just takes you away from the hustle and bustle of life and transforms you in to fiction world which I just love even if just for a while.
I will be back tomorrow with a Verse for Thursday but until then please take care of yourselves.
Here's the book.......
