The Book of You Claire Kendall
Wow – what a page turner! Gripping, and excellently constructed – the parallel narratives (Clarissa’s and the trial) worked really well – very clever! The author managed to convey suspense, emotion and drama. The bits about stalking were very good, if not downright disturbing.
Some readers were not convinced that the recurring theme of dark fairy tales added to the appeal of the novel. The plot may have been a little over-the-top: a stalker who was also a serial killer, a gruesome court case and two bad boyfriends! Perhaps a bit of overkill? A case of the author trying too hard?
Overall, people enjoyed this book. The average mark was 7/10
