This book wasn’t great, but it wasn’t horrible either. I found myself confused at times, and some of the author’s language choices felt out of place. With that being said, there were nice twists, and she kept me guessing what would happen next. I gave it 3.5 stars, and if you enjoy psychological thrillers, you’ll probably like this one. To be honest, I’m still not sure what to think about this novel.
Let me start by saying that this isn’t a genre I normally read. I found myself pleasantly surprised by the immediate action and compelling story. Barloc is an interesting character who finds himself stuck in the worst of circumstances. I thought about this book when I wasn’t reading it, and this is the type of book that could be turned into a movie or TV show. I give it 4.5 stars and look forward to the next one.
I really didn’t enjoy this book all that much. It wasn’t horrible, but it definitely wasn’t good either. My biggest problem was the dialogue, particularly with the junior high boys. Their speech was not what you would actually hear from real kids that age, and some of it was so repetitive. I give it 2.5 stars and as I reflect on the book and where it ended up, I still don’t see the point.

I really enjoyed this book. They did such a nice job of mixing mystery, suspense, and even a bit of romance. While I did catch on near the end of the book, I found myself sucked into the story throughout. The characters came off as likeable and real. I give it 5 stars and recommend it for anyone who likes a good thriller/suspense/mystery.

I enjoyed this book, but I found myself confused at times. I liked that it had so many different layers, yet I finished the novel feeling incomplete. I won’t give away any spoilers, but the ending did not provide me with the answers I was looking for. Still, this was an intriguing and well-written novel that is worth reading. I gave it four stars, but I still feel like I need to know more about the main characters.
