This guide drew me in proper from the start. We see Aidan and Caroline’s affair by means of each of their views. Each have utterly completely different variations of occasions so that you’re getting two completely different tales which was so intriguing. The story was written in two parts- earlier than the storm and after the storm. I used to be sort of disillusioned that one of many factors talked about within the blurb on the guide didn’t occur for ages. Actually 300 or so pages in. I’m not a fan of that as a result of I knew it was taking place and I used to be ready for it. There was no shock. I used to be additionally disillusioned that we by no means acquired Caroline’s perspective as soon as it acquired to the second half. I might positively suggest this guide, I actually loved it and located the entire story so addictive. I believe that the primary half was positively higher. The second half was lacking Caroline’s voice which had been the primary one partly one. I additionally assume it was a lot too apparent what was going on- I had guessed it instantly as soon as half two started. Extra thriller would have been good however I nonetheless cherished it!
