Every Bit The Stunning Thriller It Promises To Be
THIS BOOK STARTED OFF VERY VERY SLOWLY. So slowly, I began to wonder if this novel was a thriller at ALL, let alone the “STUNNING THRILLER” I’d been promised.
And then, I reached page 163.
You know how it takes just a second for a book to turn itself around and suddenly, all your expectations get thrown out the window and you’re scrambling to see what you missed? Well, that was what happened to me on page 163 of I Let You Go.
The rest of my reading experience was something I can call frantic; in the car on the way to work, on the steps up to the office, on the way back, in the washroom and until 12 a.m. last night – I HAD TO KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING.
And if that doesn’t tell you that this book WAS the “STUNNING THRILLER” it promises, I don’t know what will.
“I was stupid to think I could escape the past. However fast I run, however far: I will never outrun it.”
Told through multiple points of view – the police investigating the brutal hit and run of a five year old boy, Jenna Gray who, in her grief, runs away from everyone and everything she knew and Ian Peterson – I Let You Go manages to be heart-breaking while also keeping you at the edge of your seat.
It truly reminded me of Gone Girl in a way that nothing ever has before, and I LOVED every bit of the movie (I haven’t read the book. Yet.)
Honestly, a huge thank you to Hachette India for sending me a copy because I’m not sure I would have picked this book up otherwise. I should really read more thrillers.
A brilliantly told book that will have you on the edge of your seat, desperate for more, even while you’re reading the book! 4.5 Stars!
