    Not Worth The Time

    I almost never quit a book, but I wanted to with this one. Shallow and unlike able characters and a ridiculous storyline made for a read I couldn’t wait to be over. I kept waiting for it to get better but it only got more annoying as it went along.

    Exciting. Brilliant. Full of Twists and Turns.

    This is a brilliantly written book which had me gripped and one I would normally have binged on and read in a single day however I was reading this on ThePigeonhole app which meant that I was only permitted access to one instalment per day over ten days. That was hard! The author has expertly given us a story told from various perspectives, including twitter and WhatsApp messages. It is an interesting insight into motherhood, secrets, relationships, friendship and shows we never know what is really going on behind closed doors. What starts as a small lie leads the reader on an emotional rollercoaster with unexpected twists and turns. I would happily recommend this and I will be reading it again - in one sitting - just to see what I missed the first time around as there is honestly so much going on in this book I am sure it deserves to be read more than once! My sincere thanks to HARPER COLLINS and THE PIGEONHOLE for the opportunity to read and review ‘The Fallout’ by Rebecca Thornton. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

    Powerful & Dynamic

    A dynamic, engaging story that quivers with tension and edginess. The theme of this contemporary thriller is motherhood and the thing that stands out for me in The Fallout by Rebecca Thornton is the author's engaging writing-style, along with her wonderful characterisation and the tautly written narrative. The story itself is powerful, along with the usual tropes of secrets and lies and the voluminous resulting consequences, but so are the (terribly unlikable) characters who effortlessly lift this drama to new levels. The plot is driven by the fallout from the accident of a child and the lies told in its wake, but it is also a tale about motherhood in the social media era - the unsparing judgement of women and the mightiness of gossip, rumour and hearsay. Highly recommended for those who love dramas about motherhood and female friendships. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my request, from HarperCollins via NetGalley and this review is my own unbiased opinion. Thank you also to Pigeonhole and Rebecca Thornton for giving me the opportunity to read this book!

    Interesting dilemma

    This is an interesting dilemma faced by Sarah when she checks on her friend’s son and notices he is climbing a pole which she realises could be unsafe yet fails to stop him when she sees someone she is keen to speak to and gets distracted. When her friend asked if she checked him she fails to mention what he was doing and is terrified of admitting what happened when he falls and seriously injured himself. I enjoyed this overall however I found Sarah's character very difficult to understand, she had suffered a trauma a year ago which she had repressed rather than deal with however I still found her extreme and she just totally unravelled. Liza was a nicer character however it was difficult to understand her relationship with her husband until the end. As a dilemma this worked really well, I just found the characters difficult although the plot was solid..
