back to the Charity Shop! I picked this up the day before my trip to Albania to read on the plane. In the end I was busy knitting and chatting and looking out of the window down. I finally read it when I got back.
I'm pretty late to the party here. I imagine lots of you have already read this one and/or seen the Ben Affect and Rosamund Pike film.
"A book you'll be begging other people to read, just so you can discuss it with them "says the blurb on the back cover.
Well, no. I am not! In the beginning I thought it was a an intriguing read, with a clever bifurcated plot. Then I got irritated by both main characters. Then I ceased to care! I understand the author rewrote the ending for the film.
Some parts were just a bit too contrived, other sections not at all credible. Maybe the film is a little better.
Perhaps you enjoyed it. But I am not sure I'd recommend it, if you haven't read it. Rating this one just **
