    Great Read

    Enthralling and exciting. I loved the way the book moved around the world, whisking the reader from situation to situation. And the ending, while it made sense after I read it...was totally surprising.

    creepy not scary

    The Only Child revolves around the character of Dr. Lily Dominick, a forensic psychiatrist, who became obsessed with the human mind after witnessing her mother's death at the age of six. Lily's newest patient, however, shakes her to the core: not only does he claim to be 200 years old, but he says he knew her mother. Lily struggles between what is real and not real, both in the memories of her mother and the stories this "man" tells her about his life. The patient/man/monster quickly establishes a hold on Lily that keeps both her and the reader in suspense and looking over a shoulder until the end of the book. Elements of the characters of classic horror, including Jeykll and Hyde, Dracula, and Frankenstein are present in this storyline, so it definitely had the potential to be terrifying. However, I found the book to be more creepy than scary. I was able to determine a couple of plot twists way in advance, which also helped reduce my fright (and our hydro bill). Overall, I would give The Only Child a 3 out of 5.

    Easy read. Not what I was expecting

    I could not put it down because I was waiting for a big twist. Unfortunately I was disappointed and it was not what I was expecting or hoping for. Easy read though.
