My eyes stung with the cold glare of light. She is aware that her captor is there watching her, she knows she has to stay alive and with a miracle manages to escape from one hellish situation to another.
This is definitely a fast paced psychological thriller that can be read in one sitting. The book starts off for the point of view of Abbie. She uses her senses to describe where she is and tries to put together what is happening to her. As a wee warning it is quite descriptive at times when Abbie is struggling just in case anybody is sensitive to that kind of content it appears now and again not a lot.
From this point the novel has many high and low points for me. I wanted to like it and for the first half I did. I don’t remember which Nicci French books I read first, but I liked them. The last two, however, have been letdowns, and this one started letting me down pretty darn soon. Without giving anything away, I’ll just say, “How stupid was this woman? This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
De bewoonde wereld
To feench it, click here. I started reading it and I was like: It’s a strong one indeed. While it goes on though I realise the stupidity of both the criminal and the victim. The criminal, this guy that was so uninteresting as a character, covers the face of the victim. I thought it was ok till when he said that the victim actually should know his face.
I would accept it if it was just something he liked,he choosed to do because he got turnt on by it or something but on the other nivci he wears this scarf around his face in order to change his voice and takes it off only when he is about to kill. I can’t help but notice how much he is trying not to be recognised by a person that has already seen him? The criminal seems that has no intention.
What’s it to you? It would be different if an old trauma of his was presented. Otherwise,if he was just crazy,it would be more interesting if we saw more things from his point of view.
I think the writers tried to do a plot twist by putting a totally uninteresting character as the criminal. It wasn’t so successful. I will add that this guy seems weak. Really really weak if I judge how he reacts to her trying to be set free. But let’s talk about the woman,Abbie, since there aren’t many things we could say about the criminal that I don’t even remember his name.
I love how Abbie is presented as a regular person. A coward in the start. I like that she is trying to keep herself in sanity. And of course I like that she would prefer to commit suicide under those circumstances instead of wait to be killed. Let’s talk about the moment she runs away though. I know how you can’t remember many things from a moment when you were terrified so I understand why she couldn’t find where she was being held in the first place.
She can’t remember many things from her last days before she was abducted too,though. She can’t even remember the bad guy that he said she had seen before. But she is bewoohde I will trust everyone apart from the police officers and all those doctors who visited her in the hospital in the start and later at Joe’s house I won’t say I didn’t like this book because I do like Nicci French’s writing style so it was a good read in the broad sense.
But it was so flat and nothing ever really happened. I know werelx main character Abbie had insomnia and was trying to figure out what happened during the days leading up to her abduction.
But it was chapter after chapter after chapter of her running from one place to another, one person to another, and nothing developing from all that exertion. Not to mention that she’s as d I won’t say I didn’t like this book because I do like Nicci French’s writing style so it was a good read in the broad sense. Not to mention that she’s as dumb as a brick, hiding in plain sight, going around talking to total strangers, entering homes when she doesn’t know the owners, all the while supposedly terrified her abductor is going to find her.
She became tiresome quickly. Another character’s perspective–the boyfriend sthe girlfriends, the cops’, maybe even the killer’s–would have added some dimension and interest. There were many enormous plot holes and pointless incidents that added little to the story. Who would go to that ridiculous length to find a CAT? And ultimately when nicdi ending came, after all that run-around, it was beyond disappointing, merely some random guy.
Grrrr, easily one of the worst endings I’ve ever had the frustration of reading. Zo anders als ik gewend ben.
Dit keer slechts een kleine irritatie in het begin, omdat het er bij mij frnech in gaat dat je ergens ontwaakt, met een kap over het hoofd, liggend op een rauwe ondergrond en omgeven door geuren van vocht en bewoondf, en je je pagina’s lang afvraagt waar je bent, tot aan gedachten aan een ziekenhuis toe.
Dit keer niet anders, ware het niet dat het magnifieke slot wat andere boeken zo kenmerkt, dit keer compleet afwezig is. Het is de optelsom van de verzamelde informatie die de hoofdpersoon uiteindelijk daar brengt waar ze moet zijn. Ik hoopte nog zo op een verrassing, wat ik van French gewend ben, en dan had ik dit boek buitengewoon gewaardeerd, maar het kwam niet: Ontsnapt na een heftige kidnapping lijdt hoofdpersoon Abbie Devereaux aan geheugenverlies. Snippers informatie brengen haar terug wereeld de laatste onstuimige weken voor haar verdwijning en soortgelijke verdwijningen.
Ik werd niet erg gegrepen door deze zogenaamde thriller.
Zie het meer als een vingeroefening van het schrijversduo voor de veel boeiender Frida Klein-reeks. After the last one I read I decided to return my little collection of NF books back to the op-shop, but while and this is so typical of me, lol putting them in a bag I got distracted by one of them and thought “oh why not, I’ll try yet again”.
I probably shouldn’t have bothered.
Land of the living
Land of the Living actually starts well with some writing that makes you feel the tension and horror of the situation the main character, A Yes I’m definitely giving up on Nicci French’s books after Land fremch the Living. Land of the Living actually starts well with some writing that makes you feel the tension and horror of the situation the main character, Abbie, finds herself in.
However view spoiler [ after she makes her escape it bewoonfe goes a bit downhill with nobody really believing her story despite the fact that she is covered in bruises and has lost a significant amount of weight – when I say ‘nobody’ I’m talking about the very people who she should be able to depend on, the Police and her closest friends!!!
So that was the start of my irritations with the book and after that it just became more and more silly e. Anyway my mind is definitely made up now ebwoonde this time my Nicci French books are going into that bag without any second thoughts: Maybe it was because I had the unfortunate pleasure of reading two nidci Gillian Flynn’s books at the beginning of summer, or maybe it was something else.
But, really, The Land of werelc Living was okay. I found myself addicted to the mystery and I went along bewoonnde most of the character’s decisions, but all in all I found it a bit frustrating. I don’t consider t Maybe it was because I had the unfortunate pleasure of reading two of Gillian Flynn’s books at the beginning of summer, or maybe it was something else. I don’t consider this a spoiler considering it is written on the inside flap, but the fact that the authorities do not do more to aid in Abbie’s recovery and case drives me crazy.
It ate at me throughout the entire book, even the parts that I enjoyed.
