“Sister” by Rosamund Lupton
Brilliant! This was a gripping “unputdownable” book! Absolutely compelling, with the pace cleverly increasing until the climax. A really good read for evenings by the fire. If you like suspense, read this!
Although the story is about solving the mystery of what happened to the protagonist’s sister, it doesn’t feel like a “crime” novel as such. There’s some fine writing and powerful emotions in there, and relationships are examined alongside. I really felt as if I knew Tess – the sister who had disappeared – through her sister’s thoughts.
The ending was ingenious… I like a book to have an ending, as I otherwise feel deflated, and this one didn’t disappoint.
I will definitely make a note of Rosamund Lupton and intend to read her second novel “Afterwards” that came out this year.
