Read it in two gulping sittings. There's no explanation: just a website, a grainy image and a phone number. And now she doesn't know what to do. This is currently me and I feel so betrayed. Many people say this is the most moving part of the greeting. Zoe contacts the police, but is not really taken seriously.
There's a false sense of security because there are so many potential witnesses, but everyone is caught up in their own lives and gadgets, oblivious to the world around them. If you're writing a mystery or thriller, evaluate each word, each sentence, each paragraph, and determine whether it moves the story forward or slows it down. I was impressed too, with the descriptions of the police operations in the Underground and above. Mackintosh's writing style felt flat and awkward to me. It's part of an ad for FindtheOne.
But she never forgot him. It puts me on edge! The bad boy who tells her this is a one night stand. McAdams has won my heart again with Aurora, Jentry and Declan's romance in I See You. Oh and just happens to be her now-boyfriends adopted brother. Kelly's partner, Nick, also becomes a big part of the storyline and really gives a balance to the story.
Thankfully, I See You fell into the latter. Sorry, we can't mix titles or languages. Jentry and Declan are both beautiful men, and I love both of them in different ways. Clare Mackintosh is an extremely talented writer, she has crafted a fast-paced, well-developed plot. I found it on sale since her newest novel just hit shelves so maybe you'll get lucky! Would you be able to sleep at night? I was rooting for Jentry the whole time and I loved everything about him!! You can also find this review on my blog at. And sometimes I even like to start on one side of the triangle and be swayed over to the other side. I can't say any more to avoid spoilers.
This book had mystery and had me not wanting to put it down. But along comes 'I See You' and it just darn well blows my socks off! In my opinion, this novel was not as good as the author's debut, 'I Let You Go'. In this case it wasn't that the time periods were not interesting although I did not care at all for the scenes from the night in the past where Rorie met the stranger. But, there is just something about Molly McAdams writing that makes me want to read her stories. We follow an average forty year old woman, a commuter living in London with her family. It's an advertisement for a hook-up website with her own photo staring back at her. Some of them will attack your perceptions directly, to make you more vulnerable.
Instead i ended up feeling for both Jentry and Declan and didn't want to see either of them hurt. Routine makes you feel safe. Took me a good 200 pages for the story to pick up steam. That scares the hell out of me actually. And the story unfolds from both their points of view.
The story grabbed my attention right away. Want some thrills in your life? The entire story is built on a naive idea that stalkers would pay big money to join a website that would do the stalking for them. Think about all the people being watched-- especially women. Even now that she's so happily living with her boyfriend Declan. While still a great book, I did not get anywhere near that dramatic reaction from this one. I See You starts with middle aged mother of young adults Zoe seeing a photo of herself in the dating service section of a newspaper. Glancing suspiciously round at fellow travellers in case they are watching you just makes you in yourself look rather suspicious.
I See You was a good read. If there still was a East Germany. She's tortured by this and unable to share this secret with anyone but him, Jentry. Review written and posted on our themed book blog: Two Sisters Lost In A Coulee Reading Coulee: a term applied rather loosely to different landforms, all of which refer to a kind of valley. I See You is a novel you can breeze through easily in an afternoon. I can't bring myself to give I See You 4 stars.
