Really good, gripping. I couldn't bear for it to finish. -- Olivia Colman
Lisa Jewell's dark and twisty thriller explores the murkier reaches of the human psyche, confounding expectations as it reaches a shocking denouement. ― Daily Mail
I am always reminded of Ruth Rendell at her very best when I read Lisa Jewell. Not only is her plotting masterful, Lisa has the rare ability to make you care - passionately - about all her characters, whether they are important or minor, instantly appealing or apparently monstrous. Invisible Girl is quite brilliant in every way. -- Jane Casey
Dark, gripping, emotionally intense. My heart hurt from being squeezed so tight. -- Tamar Cohen

sorry but it was. There are no other words for it. It was not gripping, it did not twist, it was not unexpected it was plain boring. I always have to finish a book but I wish I hadn’t. It was predictable, nothing ground breaking and I am disappointed that I have read another book which is basically another books regurgitated. Come on Jewell this is unacceptable! I skim read a lot of it because frankly it was full of waffle, so I finished it in a day. I was expectant that there would be something dark, hopeful but it was a waste of paper that the words were written on. There is no plot, it isn’t developed quick enough. A girl goes missing but is hiding. A poor man has been accused just because he’s ‘odd’. A father cheated on his wife (again) and has some weird fetish. That’s it! Why was the father as a character not explored in more detail?!! Normally I pass on books to friends but this is one going straight to the charity shop. Please do not waste your money on this rubbish. I highly recommend, The Whispering Man, The Silent Patient or No one Home. These are far, far better and not from an author or who spits out any old nonsense. I will not be reading anymore Jewell books; it’s a waste of money and time. If I could give half a star I would!
I had to force myself to slow down and really savour this. The story, based around a sad, lonely and possibly quite creepy guy called Owen, grows with a slow, steady pace as tense as a stretched wire.
I found myself walking around worrying about Owen with his crooked haircut and unfortunate expression. Jewell touches on motherhood, incels, abuse, and fear but the tone is never preachy. Jewell has an absolute gift for making her characters spring off the page at you.
All of her books have this. She is so clever you feel a connection with some characters even though you are getting quite worried they might be evil. This is what enables her to explore complicated issues in a thoughtful way as she so humanises her characters. Every one of her novels has this lovely sympathy for her characters, despite their flaws. Jewell always find their humanity so your response to them is always multi-layered.
If you haven’t read Lisa Jewell I STRONGLY suggest you start now. This is SUCH a good book it hurt to read it, wrenched as I was with envy at her talent. But, like watching an athlete at the height of their powers there is something joyful about putting yourself in the hands of a master craftswoman like Jewell. She really does seem to just get better and better. Can’t wait for the next one.
