I bought this book as I wanted to read something different – I will admit that I thought it would be a quick read as thrillers tend to be but it wasn’t. I felt it took me ages to get through – it wasn’t that I wasn’t enjoying it but it definitely did not move forward as fast I would like.
A bit about the book: A thriller/mystery – One sister is found dead which is assumed to be suicide. Her sister is convinced that her sister would not have committed suicide and is intent on finding out what really happened.
The story is told from the perspective of the sister who is alive, Beatrice. The writing was good – Rosamund Lupton really seemed to get into the mind of a sister and the reader could almost feel her desperation.
I did feel though that the middle section of the book was slightly slow but the end more than made up for it. I really enjoyed the end of the book and how Rosamund Lupton tied the answers together was fascinating and chilling. I still get goosebumps thinking of how it felt to be sucked into the ending.
All in all, I give Sister and 4 out of 5 – if psychological thrillers are your bag then this is a good one. I have the next book by this author, Afterwards ready to read and have been told that it is considered to be even better so will be reading it very soon.
