Today I’m reviewing Strangers as part of the blog tour. This is actually the first book I’ve read by this author but if this is anything to go by then it definitely won’t be my last.
Many thanks to Sanjana at Avon books for having me on the tour and sending me a copy of the book to review.
Ursula, Gareth and Alice have never met before.
Ursula thinks she killed the love of her life.
Gareth’s been receiving strange postcards.
And Alice is being stalked.
None of them are used to relying on others – but when the three strangers’ lives unexpectedly collide, there’s only one thing for it: they have to stick together.
Otherwise, one of them will die.
Three strangers, two secrets, one terrifying evening.
My Review: This book, as the blurb says, introduces us to Ursula, Gareth and Alice. We then follow their stories through the book seeing the decisions they make, learning about their lives and how they came to be where they are at the point of the book.
The story moves between all three characters and shows how very different their lives are which adds to the intrigue of the beginning of the book when they appear to have been working together. There’s a lot of suspense and intrigue throughout the book. There were quite a few points where I was concerned for them and, in some cases not wanting to read the next few lines because I didn’t want to see the consequences of what they were doing.
It’s a book in which no words are wasted, everything that the characters go through/consider, etc is shown and while you might not agree with everything they do the reasoning behind their decisions is understandable given what we know about them.
This story shows that it doesn’t take a lot to change someone’s life, small actions can sometimes have huge consequences and we should not judge people because we don’t know what they are dealing with behind the face they present to the world.
I really enjoyed this book, it kept me coming back to find out more, even when I wasn’t sure I wanted to know the consequences. As a result of reading this I’m now looking forward to reading more by this author.
