This book reminded me of "Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine".. as a mystery...this is the second book I read by Liz Nugent...I enjoyed both if them. ( )

This is kind of an extended version of [Room]. What would have happened to everyone involved if psychiatrists and pedophiles were given free rein? It's very disturbing, and I couldn't stop reading. I'll probably read it again at some point because I'll recommend it to enough people that I'll want to join them again. ( )

A woman locked up, pedophile, two children, other family and friends make this a good read. ( )

Oh boy, where to begin. If you are not into disturbing content then put this book down and walk away. I know I don't read a lot of mystery anymore, but was curious about this book feeling it could be the next "Crawdads". I think it actually could be, but would be hard to adapt into anything else due to its violent nature and long story. The twists in the story are great and the writing is good. I'm just not sure who to hand it to next to read. ( )

This was a gripping read until, a few chapters from the end, it ran out of steam. I was so disappointed in the ending, and this is the reason for the 3 star review. ( )

Despite the grim subject matter, Sally is an appealing character - strange, yes, but also engagingly literal. Nugent hits exactly the right tone of empathy and optimism, but she can't fully banish the darkness.
adicionada por Lemeritus | editarKirkus Reviews (Jun 15, 2023)
 
Nugent fashions an unforgettable protagonist in Sally, and never loses sight of her character's fundamental humanity, even as she piles on twists and steers the narrative into exceptional darkness. Inventive, addictive, and bold, this deserves a wide audience.
adicionada por Lemeritus | editarPublisher's Weekly (May 15, 2023)
 
Nugent writes relatable, imperfect characters, and her portrayal of Sally's neurodivergence allows a look into the struggles of daily life that most take for granted. This well-written, engaging novel isn't for the light of heart, but it will find a home with readers who thrive on intricate plotlines and character development.
