SharrattKaren Steven Tim Richard Plus we meet the head of the department Christian Scaife Who assigns himself as her mentor and many other staff members Mina and PatrickSimon Peters Michael Lynchplus another dozen charactersWe knew the woman was on edgestill fearful from the attack She loved her toddler little boy Sammy We think she cares for her partner Mark the man she lived with Mistaken Mistress in London but I wasn t sure Mark stayed backn London he had his teaching jobwhile the the woman took a job further away She and Mark worked out an arrangement He came to visit on weekends and visited his little son Sammy It doesn t take long to figure out that one of the students had something to do with the sexual assault that happened to the woman a few years back before she came to teach at this university But there Bunny: A Novel is still much mystery I found this bookn parts GOOD yet disjointed with loose ends that never went anywherewith a boggled down feeling from too many students to keep track of Jo Baker does write beautiful sentences and engage our thoughts I apologize I just felt a little confused at timesMaybe other readers won t Little things made me laugh about the University rules Students could declare f they had mental ssues or not For the students who did a yellow sticker was attached to their file However no teacher was allowed to find out any specifics about their students ssues Around 40% of the creative writing students did declare having a mental health ssue One particular student wrote heavy dark stories about grief and self destruction It s creepy enough that I didn t know what to make of him Or what he s up toToo hard to write without spoilers I do like Jo Baker s work but this was a mixed bag Be clear I DID ENJOY much of t the unlikable flawed characters tooAt the same time t s a book of only around 3 stars for meMuch thanks to Knopf Publishing and Jo Baker Many thanks to Knopf Books for sending me a copy The Sex of the

The book s described as suspenseful and thrilling It s notThe story s plodding with not much happening until the end And even that end Mj 12. Die Geheime Regierung is unsurprising than excitingOur characters are smug andnsufferable and they spend the book doing smug and Strahlend In Purpur Und Goldd. Heilige Reich Von Konstantinopel insufferable things all with an overlay of complete arroganceOur main character has an oddly fatalistic viewpoint Since things are going to happen to her anyway she simply lets things happen Including a very odd sex scene which she hintss rape but maybe not Because Sierra Wildflowers: Mt. Lassen to Kern Canyon it was going to happen anyway and the whole encounter bored herI do think the author has some talent She has a way with words and can definitelympart atmosphere But the plot and characters left me cold Despite not fitting neatly El Guero Tellez/ Tellez the Blond: Reportero de policia!/ Police Reporter! into the mysterythriller genre The Body Liess one of the most tense terrifying things I ve ever read It follows an unnamed narrator a normally Haunted Louisiana: The Most Haunted Houses in Louisiana irritating overused convention whichs employed here with actual purpose who takes up a teaching position somewhere n the north of England following a violent assault n London While at the university she awkwardly attempts to mediate heated discussions on gender politics A Mistaken Match in her MA writing course while receivingncreasingly disturbing submissions from one of her studentsThe Body Lies has a meta element that s almost tongue Lodz in cheek one of her students criticizes another for writing a detective novel which opens with the discovery of a dead girl while Baker s novel also opens with a dead female body But this books a series of subverted tropes of self conscious commentary on these common taken for granted elements that comprise so many thrillers It s a razor sharp commentary and a compelling story all n one What also sets t apart from the genre The Diminished is that thedentity of the dead girl never really feels like the point For the first time probably ever reading a thriller I cared less about the mystery and about the safety and the sanity of the protagonist whose experiences as a woman n academia are all chillingly relatable This book sn t the type of terrifying where there s a serial killer lurking n the corner t s the sort of terrifying that hones Claimed by a Cowboy in on the disturbing oddly normalized commonalities of womanhood that are too easily accepted I raced through this not because I wasntent on getting to the bottom of the mystery but because of the Discipline increasing sense of crushing dread that I couldn t escape every time I attempted to step away from this book If I have to nitpick I d say the ending was let down by a too long resolution whichnsisted on wrapping up every minor subplot Claim the Night (The Claiming in a neat bow whichs probably my least favorite way to end a novel but I loved everything else about this and I think Claimed by Desire it s one of the smartest most unsettling things I ve readn a long time that I d encourage literary readers and genre readers alike to pick up The Body Lies by Jo Baker was a compelling tense and suspenseful thriller that I enjoyed right from the start When a young writer accepts a job at a university Say Youll Remember Me in the remote countrysidet s meant to be a fresh start away from the big city and the scene of a violent assault she s desperate to forget But DESPITE THE DISTRACTIONS OF A NEW the distractions of a new and single motherhood her nerves continue to jangle To make matters worse a vicious debate about violence against women Accidental Bodyguard inflames the tensions and mounting rivalriesn her creative writing group When a troubled student starts sending n chapters from his novel that blur the lines between fiction and reality the professor recognises herself as the main character n his book and he has written her a horrific fateI really did find this author s style of writing a breath of fresh air there were so many different variations of writing within the story The short stories we were privy to of the students work were so different to each other they themselves were as entertaining as the book Mehr als das itself I enjoyed how the multi layered story was set out with occasional witness statements andn particular chapters of one of the character s novel which was crucial to the suspense of the plot I also thought The Accidental Cowboy (Angel Crossing, Arizona, it wasngenious how the title of the book was Abby and the Bachelor Cop incorporatednto sections of the story which were literary and atmospheric Above the canopy the sky Eye to Eye is clear the moon stands full An owl scuds across the meadow drops to kill a vole In the shadow of the beech tree theres stillness not a breath The body lies Including the exploration of sexual politics Accidentally Expecting in the thriller and the timely theme of how men see womenn the World It Really Was it really was powerful gripping and very modern book for a very modern world The fact that the main female protagonist has no name n the story reflects how she represents all women and was a very clever dea It s difficult to write much about this story without giving too much away suffice to say I was totally hooked and although some of the characters #Are Totally Flawed And Unlikeable They Are #totally flawed and unlikeable they are and you want to follow each of their journey s through to the end There are a couple of unsettling scenes but they were appropriate to the story and really enhanced the powerful message of the book and along with a tense and suspenseful denouement this really Herzrivalen is anmmensely entertaining novelI d happily recommend The Body Lies and I wish Jo the very best with this excellently written and well thought out piece of modern literary fiction5 stars By this point I m sure you
