"A psychological thriller that explores whether evil is born or made
Is evil born or made?
This is a shocking thriller but also a deeply moving and poetic story. Throughout the novel poems are quoted as the character Grace develops an interest in poetry which helps her to cope with life. The novel itself uses poetic imagery throughout that adds depth to the story.
I love the authors style:
"There was something deliciously intoxicating about squirreling yourself away for a while and letting your thoughts take flight."
"If something is written beautifully, it can spark something special in us, make us feel a little bit more alive"
I never expected a thriller to make me love the words and to make me want to quote the book!
Although as I've said it's a poetic story it's chilling when it needs to be, some of the scenes are so shocking that at some points I've wanted to turn away and stop reading. But the story is so riveting that I couldn't stop. This story shows you the inner workings of a psychopaths mind, it's very interesting if disconcerting.
Wonderful read from beginning to end. Will have to read more by this author.
