OK, I liked this less than Seddon's second novel and I'm not a fan of the unreliable narrator style. The story similarly switches from present to past. the present moving chronologically, the past less so. The exposition, at times, is as slow and painful as Chinese torture. There is a brave literary but unrealistic element in Amy's first person account. All told, it's an above average read even though the barely functioning characters technique is growing a little tiresome.

Pretty good read, a little unrealistic, but a good fast paced read no the less.

What a disappointment!!
Poor characters, boring & unrealistic plot...who believes a person can be in a coma for 15 years???

One of those books that you just don't want to put down. Will definitely look for more of her work.

I was so disappointed in this book. The trial consisted of less than two pages and was so far from reality that it was difficult to finish the book.

This was a good book! Easy to read and fast paced. I finished it in just a couple of days (probably would have had it done in 1 day if I would have had more time). I enjoyed the fact that I was convinced that I knew who the "bad guy" was but was wrong after all! I love books that make you think you know what's going on but flip on you at the end!

What a great read! Became such a page turner as you became more invested. Will be looking out for more books from the author.
