You Let Me In
By Lucy Clarke, and and, Laura Kirman
‘The very definition of a page-turner’ Clare MackintoshTweet
This book received very mixed reviews from our group. Most members found it extremely enjoyable and the intrigue and suspense kept the pages turning. Others found the pace too slow, and felt no connection or empathey towards the main character.
When this book was first given out as the book for review this month one or two were very doubtful if they would enjoy or even be able to read it based on the cover “blurb” and that it did not appear to be the sort of book they normally enjoyed. However, much to some readers’ surprise, this really turned out to be a page turner for most of the group – great build up of tension and well disguised protagonist and plot so very much enjoyed by most of us. One or two guessed the “baddie” but not the reason for their actions and all thought it well written with interesting, if not particularly likeable, characters. One of the group had already starting reading another book by this author and most of us would recommend it to others. Good choice for a book club and we gave it an average score of 7 out of 10.
This is one of those books which I found "long-winded" but which I did want to finish. I found the changing to different time-periods interesting and Lucy Clarke's writing style is very easy to read.
Although I guessed "the baddie" I didn't guess the reasoning behind the stalking etc
All in all an enjoyable read which I would recommend.
