  • An OK read

    The story jumps between the POV of both Kit and Laura, over a 15 year time span, after they stumble upon a possible rape in progress, during a solar eclipse festival in 1999. It is in essence a story about how the same incident can affect people in a very different way, and how a " little white lie" can evolve and eat away at you and those affected by it, like the moon eats away at the sun during an eclipse. The difficult topic of rape and the plight of how the victim is questioned, doubted and 'put on trial' is also a theme of the book. The premise of the book as well as all the rave reviews had me eager to get started on this. Unfortunately, my eagerness didn't last very long as I found I had to keep motivating myself on several occasions to continue reading throughout the first half of the story. It seemed to drag on unnecessarily. I also found myself getting confused , and almost giving up, with the many references to the fact that the couple are in hiding ( for some unknown reason), but with the revelations only happening towards the end of the book, the references had me frustrated instead of intrigued, as I didn't know what they were referring to a lot of the time. It is one thing to keep the reader guessing, but at least give them some crumbs to keep them going. Especially if the story is a slow burner, which this one most certainly is. In all honesty, I prefer a story that hooks me from the start, or at least 25% in, this one failed to do that for me. Once I reached the 50% mark however, the story finally gained momentum and I could appreciate how the author had built up the story, layer upon layer, to reveal twists and then double twists to add an extra layer to the original twist, so that I was left doubting almost all the characters at some point, which I loved. However some of the twists did not correlate with what the author had painstakingly portrayed the character to be, making it unlikely and unbelievable. But I suppose that's why they're called surprise twists. Was it a good surprise though? One can tell how much effort the author put into building the story ( although slowly), to weave a Web of lies and the lengths one would go to to protect themselves from those lies being revealed. That was the makings of a good story. However, the unnecessary fillers,the fact that I was bored until half way through, and some twists being unbelievable earns this book a 3 * from me.

    Thanks for your feedback!
