NEW YORK TIMES AND INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
Boldly plotted, tightly knotteda provocative true-or-false thriller that deepens and darkens to its ink-black finale. Marvelous. AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window
My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:
1. Im in a coma.
2. My husband doesnt love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.
Amber wakes up in a hospital. She cant move. She cant speak. She cant open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesnt remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it's the truth?

I spent most of the book thinking Amber and Taylor were different people then it all swapped around and suddenly Amber and Taylor are the same person and Claire enters the equation as the friend who had become the sister! Sorry if I'm confusing you but I was confused. Maybe I had it all wrong but I guess I'll never know and I don't enjoy not knowing!
I don't consider this to be a psychological thriller, I have read many far better. This wasn't thrilling at all. I appear to have missed the 'killer twist you'll never forget'.
There are no less than 3 plotlines in this novel but this was never confusing and I actually like it when there’s a lot going on as was the case here, it keeps me turning those pages. One of the plotlines follows Amber when she’s 11 years old, another one follows her in the present a few days before she finds herself in the hospital and the last one is the one with Amber in a coma. Well she isn’t actually in a coma, she can hear perfectly fine what is going on around her, she just can’t react in any way. As if that’s not enough, she also can’t remember what happened to her. It’s all rather terrifying and her paranoia towards her husband and sister really rubbed off on me :-). It’s not easy to figure out who to trust when you can’t ask any questions. Someone did this to her and I was ready to crucify them myself!
It made sense that there’s a plotline leading up to ‘the event’ but it was puzzling what the plot about her younger self had to do with the story and how she ended up there. It focused largely on her family situation and her friendship with a girl named Taylor when she was a young girl and I had no doubt there was a meaningfulness that totally escaped me; Taylor wasn’t mentioned in the present at all.
The author built up the tension in the days and hours towards her hospital admission and surprised me with a major twist of category 5 (I know, I just decided to have my own rating for twists and this one is of the same order as being told the earth is flat). So many things are actually connected but invisible to see at first sight. The past did have an effect on the present and to understand the present you have to know about the past. I might sound as if I’m talking in riddles but you just have to read it for yourselves if you want the full detail! I’m impressed with this author’s clever writing and I seriously had to wrap my head around that twist.
In conclusion: a wonderful debut that will keep you guessing for a very long time. Read it, it’ll keep you very entertained!
It started off well enough, and the 'sometimes i lie' gives the story a great edge - that is, if it hadn't of descended into farce. The plot twist are clumsy and forced, and in the end you think - the whole story is a lie, so why did I bother reading it. It had so much potential , but in the end I was really disappointed.
However, what is really worry is the publishing of a book from an author unable to punctuate accurately or use prepositions correctly. At one time the standard of literacy would have failed this candidate at O Level English Language. In addition, names of key characters are misspelt, though this is more likely the result of sloppy proofreading. Nonetheless, there are flashes of the imaginative use of language, even though much of the writing is flat and uninspiring.
There is potential in the material, certainly. In the hands of someone with a more disciplined approach and finer linguistic skills, this could be a very fine novel.
