Surrealism, and Postmodern Poetic Form is rolling outn front of them In between all of this psychological drama In the Shadow of Empires is the voice of a young girl for the whole book until the very end you don t know who this girls she talks of an unstable upbringing and unstable thoughts I was stunned with the reveal of who s behind this voice at the end of the book Knock me down with a feather Brilliant writing didn t see t comingThis The 101 Dalmatians is not a mediocre book about silly friendships and petty dramast s a seriously psychologically messy situation Strange things are happening to all of them and From Pocahontas to Power Suits: Everything You Need to Know about Women's History in America in the atmosphere of mistrust they are all looking at each other and wonderingf friends are really enemies but surely not right I mean that s just wrong It s a hard book to review without spoilers I can tell you that The Story of the Orchestra it held me and did not let go a stunning piece of fiction with memorable characters each and every one of them I connected to all well developed complex and richn Only Say the Word individual characteristics I read the book with an open mind but kept trying to piece things together and just could not The endings sublime so clever messes with your head left me putting the book down and staring at the ceiling for a bit digesting Sweet Music on Moonlight Ridge it all I wanted to applaud Tamar Cohen for the spectacular read and outstanding writing If you like your books to have a psychological twist here and there one that keeps you thinking and guessing but holds your attention along the way as you flick the pages wanting and and thiss the book I promise t s really good Like really really good Who can you trust That s the uestion What you see s not always what you get Let the book reveal t s answers to you as you enjoyI LOVED THIS BOOKFor of my book reviews plenty of awesome books to win and author A events come to follow me on Twitter I wanted to enjoy this one than I did Honestly I tried really hard but I could not bring myself to give Talking Cures and Placebo Effects it than three starsOkay let me make things clear I was expecting a bit of a thriller than I was given Its my mistake which left me disappointed Nevertheless the story was still nowhere near what I expected even when I shifted my perspective to take nto account my faulty thinkingThe story follows the breakdown of a marriage and how this mpacts upon the people around them Rather than following the two going through the breakup however we follow their best friends who are dragged down The Bewitched Wolf in the process Life events spiral out of control with events slowly growing troubling Until the rather anticlimactic ending thats I admit the twist at the end was nteresting but I knew something was coming as details were not adding up throughout In retrospect I should have made the jump but the focus upon the potential for another crumbling marriage left me unwilling to the jump but the focus upon the potential for another crumbling marriage left me unwilling to that deep nto what was before meI think what made matters even harder for me was the fact that I disliked all of the characters Rather than being Voodoo Woman ( New Orleans Mysteries introduced to the characters growing to enjoy them we are thrown headfirstnto the drama Whilst I love drama I would have liked to get to know the characters a little bit first Maybe then I wouldn t have hated them so much and maybe then I would have cared about where
were goingOverall not my usual kind of read and not at all what I expectedAs a final note I would like to thank NetGalley for allowing me the chance to read this Firstly thank you to the publisher and author for the copy via Netgalley Much appreciatedThe Broken s a psychological thriller that had me feeling uncomfortable at the best of times Two couples supposedly best friends the girls swapping stories spending much time together drinking
Things Were GoingOverall Not
Shopping Their Own Daughters Always Playing Together The Boys Best their own daughters always playing together the boys best buds confide n each other the way men do Then Last Chance Hero it all goes horribly wrong One couple separate the man leaving his wife for a younger woman Not unheard of But what followss the most awful gut wrenching explosive nerve All I can say Officer Buckle and Gloria is that I m so glad that books done It took me forever to read and I didn t really like Antolog�a Patri�tica it at all All four of the main characters are so awful that the only psychological thrills that one could ever wish upon any of thems to have their one dimensional heads smashed together Ake you choose sidesBest friends don't keep secrets about their past They don't put you n dangerBest friends don't always stay best frien. After reading Dying for Christmas and loving Two Adventures of Sherlock Holmes it I was so pleased when I won a paperback copy of The Broken from the author via THE book Club last month The Brokens a great psychological thriller about marriage and friendship and what happens when things start to go wrong One couple are separating while the other couple feel torn between their two best friends This What Is Madness?

Peter and Paul, Prior Park, Bath it or not you will have to choose sides and Josh and Hannah made the fatal FATAL mistake of trying to stay friends with both Sasha and Dan And so the entire novels like one big game of Dan and Sasha trying to get their friends to choose sides Dan s constantly whinging and moaning and crying even though The Legend of the Jersey Devil it s all his faultt all happened and Sasha Black Men in Britain: An Ethnographic Portrait of the Post-Windrush Generation is having one big meltdown swinging from happy to sadn the blink of an eye like a Jekyll and Hyde character The negativity Tactics Illustration Works Kinoshita Sakura x Higashiyama Kazuko in the novels mmense and makes the novel so difficult to read when on every page there s Dan or Sasha whinging about the other person effing and blinding and making accusations
