Behind Her Eyes
By Sarah Pinborough
Don’t Trust This Book
Don’t Trust These People
Don’t Trust Yourself
And whatever you do, DON’T give away that ending…
Behind Her Eyes was a difficult book to get into but, once there, the majority of our members really enjoyed.
We found the beginning parts quite slow and tedious and it was difficult to keep track of who was who and what time zone we were in. None of the characters were particularly likeable and David seemed an almost shadowy figure compared to the others. However we found the story as a whole unusual and interesting and we all thought the twist at the end was particularly clever and unexpected.
We all thought it was well written but it was suggested that perhaps it had been written “backwards” i.e. the author had started with an ending and then written the rest of it.
We thought it was cleverly marketed and the cover was particularly striking and would have tempted us to buy off the shelf.
All in all we enjoyed it and gave it an average mark of 6 out of 10.
