I Am Watching You Reviews
I read this for "Free Space/Creepy Raven". "I am Watching You" by Teresa Driscoll which is a thriller/mystery.
Eh where to begin. Besides the poorly developed characters, the switching from first to third person, and the slut shaming that was thrown in for good measure, I don't know what to think of this book. The initial premise intrigued me, too bad that Driscoll decided that instead of sticking with one character throughout which would have made the book stronger, she jumped around to four ot ...more
This is the story of Ella, who was sitting on a train listening in on a conversation between two girls and two young men that they have just met. She considers phoning someone as the men are newly released from prison, but then something happens and she changes her mind. The next day she finds out that one of the girls, Anna, has gone missing.
This story actually starts a year after the disappearance, and is told from different viewpoints. Only the chapters from Ella are in first perso ...more

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
Ooh, what a gripping thriller!
I'm not normally one for a classic 'page-turner', but for this book, I'll happily make the exception. It's an absorbing, deftly crafted suspense novel, with twists and turns a-plenty, minus the hackneyed cliff-hangers featured in so many other books of this genre.
It starts with two girls on a train, and a woman observing them as they chat away to two older lads (who have just been releas ...more
So....the secrets each character held kept me intrigued but it was all for naught. I HATE books like this and resent the shitty, lazy, unfair device the author uses to wrap things up.
Switching between 1st and 3rd person narration was just the cherry on the crap cake...
I listened to this audiobook at the beginning of January. As soon as I was done, I typed my review into a Word document. However, I can't find it anywhere now. I also deleted all of my notes (since I was done my review).
So I am going to try my best!
I am still relatively new to audiobooks but I'm starting to enjoy them. I find them perfect to listen to while doing chores or when I'm in the car. It's also nice to give my eyes a break sometimes.
I was really intrigued after reading the descriptio ...more
Well great to join in a buddy read, with a group of us reading this book for January.
Some great points about this book, firstly I do enjoy the stories/chapters from all the different main characters in the book.
A great opportunity to build the story through the characters and plots, build the tension and it does work so well.
