Scattered, jumbled storySorry to say that I couldn t connect to this one at all There s something about the writing style that made it difficult to get into the story, and though there are elements of the plot that had potential, the execution was lacking that special something to make it work. The story follows Stella, a former child star, as she meets a guy and they begin a relationship that may or may not be healthy Marco recognized Stella immediately upon meeting, and they shared one drunken night together that turned into Somehow Stella has found herself in a relationship, still not all that happy, and with a dependence on pills to get through the day. It s told exclusively from Stella s perspective with a lot of internalization and I think that s partially to blame for the scattered feel Essentially, the stor The story had good premise but the writing style was lacking Flashbacks are all good when used properly, but shouldn t be used as an oh wait this happened too after the story jumps a week into the future It was like when someone is telling a story and has a relapse and says oh wait this happened before that now where was I again and jumps back to where they left of Was also hard to feel the connection between the main characters. So compelling I read this book in one dayI am an avid reader and can plow through books very quickly in a few days if on vacation I downloaded this at the airport in Newark on my way to Frankfurt and could not put it down Once I arrived at my hotel I continue reading instead of taking a nap I really needed after a red eye flight and finish the book because I needed to know the ending I was so captivated in this story I hope she writes books soon I m sure her topics resonates with me because I have had girl friends find themselves in similar situations and I m glad I was able to help them escape
I had this free as an First read book and I thought it was very good Once a child tv star, our heroine whose name escapes me meets an older man and gets involved in a relationship with him Gradually we see him taking control of her life Half way through I found myself wishing that the plot would move on it did as I couldn t bear to spend much longer shouting at the heroine, no, don t do that, don t let him Towards the end, I found it hard to put down, just so I could know what was going to happen I do t usually have such strong reactions to books I don t care for but this book drove me insane Not a single character was in any way like able or relatable The story was disconnected and confusing at times The supernatural element, in my opinion, was completely unnecessary and did harm than good Also, I m going to point out this is yet another story about an unreliable narrator, made unreliable by substance abuse Which, frankly, I am sick of. Absolutely tore through this book over one late night and early morning I love the stuttering time jumps as Stella loses grip on reality because of those damn little gray pills The haunted little ocean cabin was very creepy and vivid I loved the creepy chicken house The best part about this book is the way that you start to suspect every character of messing with Stella, you even suspect Stella of sabotaging herself Really great book, I would read again and recommend it to others. ò The Silence ò read this in one day Quick pace, easy to get through, writing style is easy to follow. I love a book with twists and turns but unfortunately this wasn t it, easy to figure out what was going to happen from the beginning so there were no surprises. Still, an enjoyable read, would read others from the author.

No major spoilers Gaslighting at its most extreme and a ghost made this confusing to read, but in all the right ways This book definitely left me feeling creeped out all the way through, and while the full plot was predictable, the details, or perhaps the questions, are what kept me reading.
