    For my full review, visit me at have read books covering many fictional scenarios rape, graphic murders, paedophiles but this novel left me with a constant sickening feeling in my stomach I predicted how the story would unfold but, despite feeling so horrid, continued reading in the hope that the mood would lift If the topic of gas lighting makes you feel uncomfortable and is an unpleasan

    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

    I don 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 didharm than good Also, I m going to point out this is yet another story about an unreliable narrator, made unreliable by

    Stella, a former child star, falls for an older man Stella is in her thirties and her life is in a downward spiral She believes her new suitor will help save her, but he may be part of the problem A predictable psychological thriller with unlikable characters I had zero sympathy for Stella, and could not get into this story.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here It s taken me a bit of time to get to this review because I found the central relationship quite hard to stomach due to past experience Daisy s depiction of gaslighting is spot on But The Silence is what they call a total banger and I read it in one sitting I m awed by the author s turn of phrase which elevated the book and while some of the

    This was myFirst Reads pick for the month of February.It s one thing to be a broken individual that someone could easily prey on It s quite another to be that AND painfully stupid That s the reason I could not finish this book Not only was it glaringly obvious from chapter one as to what was going on but we had to deal with a protagonist who is mentally and emotionally blind It was so frustrating that I had to put the book
