The Last to Know Reviews
The plot being far from ideal, one would at least hope for some depth in the characters, some sophistication in their psychic world that would bring a minimum of meaning. Unfortunately, the narrative fails at this aspect as well. Despite this being a novel relying almost exclusively on characters, Candida Crew fails at delivering. The characters are unrealistic, difficult to relate to or even sympathize, and their woes appear as meaningless. There is very little to expect from such a setup, and despite some interesting moments here and there, these are too few and, in the end, pointless to rescue the novel.Read More: http://www.litreviewmonthly.com/2016/...
I think everyone has probably at some time or other wondered what it would be like to disappear to be someone else - this book, in a simple way, makes you think a little more about disappearing and about the consequences it would have on you and those around you - I really enjoyed this book, the subject matter was different and good, it was simply written and simply told but it got right under my skin, I couldn't wait to find out how it turned out and couldn't put it down once I got into it - would like to read more of her books
This book was unusual in that it deals with a husband nipping out to buy ice-cream, then making the momentous decision not to bother going home! Then we read the book from his eyes and his wife's..He annoyed me with his selfishness, yet you could feel how trapped he obviously felt.I empathise with her obvisouly, being a woman, but sometimes she annoyed me too..It was a good read - ideal for taking on holiday so you can read it undisturbed!
Not a great book
