Not mysterious enough for me.

I liked the manuscript/beta-reading angle and the characters in the manuscript, but there were too many plot holes.

I went into this thinking it was a mystery/thriller. Although it starts with the discovery of a hand, the murder mystery only seems to be a background story and not the focus.

This book features a large cast of characters. I would recommend the print version to keep things straight. The audio made it difficult.

The author has written a book about small towns and small minded people making this more of a character study.

So creepy good! Family trip to an Australian island to see indigenous animals turns into an accident/nightmare/kidnapping. This one kept me on the edge of my seat for hours! Had loved his novel The Chain so I knew this was worth it!

The narration is alternately from Noelle & Daniel's pov, giving the reader a look into both the characters. Noelle is an MC who is quite engaging & easy to root for, but Daniel is a bit of 'bad boyfriend' cliché. No animals were harmed in the story though, which is always a good thing. I rate this a solid 3⭐ stars as it was fast-paced, with several twists & turns, but there is nothing about it that really stands out.

OutsmartYourShelf My thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Bookouture, for the opportunity to read an ARC.

Vauhini Vara has written a unique, genre-bending novel packed full of a variety of characters following different timelines. At first, things were a little difficult to keep track of, but once I got the feel for it I was hooked.

The core of this novel grapples with humans and technology. King Rao is a genius who uses his computer skills to change the world. But the ultimate question is did he make things better or worse?

This was such a great read! 💚 I binged the audio today while cleaning. Once I started it I didn't want to stop. It's more of a thriller with supernatural elements than purely horror.

Teddy has an imaginary friend. When his new babysitter starts asking questions about this friend things take a creepy turn. The action and suspense build throughout and reach a satisfying ending that I didn't have fully figured out beforehand.

vivastory This sounds great! Will definitely be checking it out 2d
