    Interesting concept

    The story feels awkward in many places, but I can understand this as the story must have been quite an undertaking. The POV of several characters, but the narrator's true identity never revealed until the end. Kept my interest.

    Dark Beautifully Written Psychological Thriller

    Lynes novel ‘Mother’ is a dark psychological thriller which is beautifully written. Styled and set in the Leeds in the UK and the 70’s/80’s. This has a strong sense of itself which will not be for everyone but for those that it captures, they will be fully rewarded. The first couple of chapters have their own unique style which will prepare the reader for what is to come. Once you get into the rhythm of the piece, the story flows easily. With its beautiful passages mixed with the dark psychological provides a cocktail of art and sophistication. I am at a cross roads with regarding this review as I think too much information will ruin the exciting discovery of this book. Psychological dark tale with nostalgic passages shows that Lynes is working at the top of her game. This is an author that is one to look out for and a real true talent. This is rewarding dark psychological thriller that will award the reader who sticks with this with its deep dark underbelly which twists and turns at every bend. This is something to really sink your teeth into. Utterly amazing.

    Mother - "had a tough time with this one"

    I have to be honest here, I found this a tough book to get through, but I was determined to finish this book. I found it quite slow and somewhat disjointed. It wasn't until close to the end that it picked up the pace a bit. I did feel sorry for Christopher and throughout, I wondered what Benjamin had to do with the story. Wasn't until close to the end that it became clear to me who Benjamin was and who, actually, Christopher was. Alas, was not a great read for me, it was ok, I read it to the end because at that point I did have to find out who these 2 boys actually were.

    Twisted

    I can't say I liked Christopher or felt any empathy for him. From the start he felt he didn't belong and understandably seeking his biological family. However to cast them aside as if they had mistreated him or not loved him, this I cannot understand. He came to understand very early on that he was not the person he wanted to be, he kept the evil twin hidden until he longer could.
