For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

I loved this book, the third in the series. The narrator was great, exactly how I imagined Louisa Clark, and her accents for other characters were great.
The story is a love story, more or less, and ticked every box for me. Love, travel, intrigue and friendships. Relationships of every kind were beautifully written and it was a thoroughly engaging.

Margot Lewis is the agony aunt for The Cambridge Examiner. Her advice column, Dear Amy, gets all kinds of letters - but none like the one she's just received: 'Dear Amy, I don't know where I am. I've been kidnapped and am being held prisoner by a strange man. I'm afraid he'll kill me. Please help me soon, Bethan Avery.' Bethan Avery has been missing for nearly two decades. This is surely some cruel hoax. But as more letters arrive, they contain information that was never made public.

I really enjoyed this book, the performances were excellent and gripping. The story was unusual with lots of twists and turns, I never knew where it was going to end!
I was a bit disappointed by the ending, as Callaghan had spent a significant amount of time building the plot and the characters, and it was all over a bit too abruptly for me. However still a fantastically creepy book
