After Anna – Book Review
I was putting After Anna on the shelf at the charity shop when something made me read the blurb on the back. I put it back on my trolley and bought it at the end of my shift.
It was a bit slow at first and took me a few days to get through the first half. The second half, however, took me a few hours on a quiet Sunday afternoon to finish.
It played to my emotions and I found myself getting really angry on Julia’s behalf!
Here’s the blurb from Goodreads
The real nightmare starts when her daughter is returned…
A bone-chilling psychological thriller that will suit fans of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, Daughter by Jane Shemilt, and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
A girl is missing. Five years old, taken from outside her school. She has vanished, traceless. The police are at a loss; her parents are beyond grief. Their daughter is lost forever, perhaps dead, perhaps enslaved. But the biggest mystery is yet to come: one week after she was abducted, their daughter is returned. She has no memory of where she has been. And this, for her mother, is just the beginning of the nightmare.
I thought I’d worked it out quite early on but I was wrong! I did work it out about 300 pages in and was shocked when I realised who had abducted Anna.
I’d recommend it and I would recommend it for lovers of this genre. I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.
