Very different to her previous books

An ok story but I didn’t enjoy the theme and plot as much as her previous books unfortunately. I stuck with it but was left a little disappointed.

The basis of this book is an interesting topic, however for me, it did not feel as though any real authentic research had been done. It was a little fantastical in places, totally at odds with the theme. Most importantly, I just couldn’t warm to the protagonist. Overall, good theme, but it didn’t deliver, part of me felt the author was writing for the big screen, which just made it really ‘off’ in terms of a book.
