Sending to loopyl in England.
sent to loopy1
I found myself looking at it from a writer's point of view as well - I was very impressed with the adept way the atmosphere and situation was told very skilfully in the first few pages, but was irritated by the occasional POV jumps from one character and back again.
Still, well worth the read, a nice entertaining evening or two. Thanks for this :-)
Now going in the UK mystery/thriller bookbox.
I have never read anything written by Mary Higgins Clark. She is one of those authors that hovers on the edge of my peripheral vision (kind of like Margaret Truman did) willing me to try one of her books. I will definitely give in to the temptation now!
I am also registering this book to find out what happens to it once I send the book box out again. If anybody would like this while the book is still in my custody, it will be available for trade (I will replace it with an equivalent mystery book in the box if that should happen).
I will be back!
I read this very quickly as I am kind of going through an insomniac phase at the moment and this novel was very easy reading.
This was my first Mary Higgins Clark book and I have to say I felt slightly let down by the blurb on the cover promising that Stillwatch would be a "chilling" read. Chilling, unfortunately, it was not, at least not for me. The book was written in 1984 and I think, perhaps, that I have just become used to more gruesome fare. The story was intriguing enough to keep me reading to the end, though. There were some good twists and I did not predict exactly how it was going to end, although I was not too far off the mark!!
As I said above, this book will be available for trade until such time as I send the book box out again. Thanks bodesoda and loopy1!
I enjoyed this one and it kept me hooked to the end, but perhaps not as much as some of the other MHC books I've read recently.
I'll take this along to the forthcoming Hants meet-up & see if it finds a new home there.
It's a fast read, and a good story.
Released at the BookCrossing meet at Pizza Express last night
as described on the cover, but it was a good read nonetheless.
Left with all the magazines on the table.
