Die Jungautorin Lowen Ashleigh bekommt ein Angebot, das sie unmöglich ablehnen kann: Sie soll die gefeierten Psychothriller von Starautorin Verity Crawford zu Ende schreiben. Diese ist seit einem Autounfall, der unmittelbar auf denTod ihrer beiden Töchter folgte, nicht mehr ansprechbar und ein dauerhafter Pflegefall.

Lowen akzeptiert – auch, weil sie sich zu Veritys Ehemann Jeremy hingezogen fühlt. Während ihrer Recherchen im Haus der Crawfords findet sie Veritys Tagebuch und darin offenbart sich Lowen Schreckliches ...

Longe de ser o tipo de livro que eu costumo ler, devo dizer que esse daqui foi uma grata surpresa, indicado pelo pessoal do Clube do Livro Canção & Euforia.

A autora tem uma ótima escrita e consegue deixar a leitura dinâmica, sem aquela presença ostensiva de frases elaboradas para ajaezar a obra e deixar o texto com cara de clássico.

É uma ideia muito bem executada e eu fiquei com uma pulga atrás da orelha a todo o instante, desconfiado junto com a protagonista, angustiado junto com ela e esperançoso também.

Difícil superar o clima de suspense e não me sentir na pele de Lowen e embora haja tanto sexo na história, não acho que ele desmereça a qualidade da obra em nenhum momento. Está sempre bem posicionado, não é vulgar e tampouco é sem sentido, se há sexo há contexto e isso trouxe uma outra luz para esse …

Review of 'Verity' on 'Storygraph'

5 stars

What a mindfuck. I stayed up all night reading this, finishing it only hours after barely sleeping for 5h straight. Insane. Usually I had books that are this tense. I get too tangled up in stories. However, I loved this. It's just so on point!

Things I liked:

- The suspense in the first part of the story, where nothing of interest happens but the tension is still very strong.
- The interesting plot idea

Things I did not like:

- The execution of the plot. The final plot twist is really kind of stupid and not believable at all.
- Flat characters. I mean, who is Jeremy, apart from a guy that likes to get his dick sucked? I still have no clue.
- Illogical and unnecessary plot lines. Why the horrific accident in the first pages? Why is the relationship with her agent given so much attention when it says so little?

All in all, this book left me disappointed.

This book is hard to rate for a number of reasons. First off, it's not very good, so there's that. Secondly it does keep you reading to find out what fucked up things will happen next so there is that too. It's like a typical "pot boiler" type, easy enough reading, titillating sexual tidbits, which truth be told, I didn't care for, but I know a lot of women do, hense the popularity of books like 50 Shades of Gray etc... plot twists and a big "reveal" at the end which has you scratching your head going... ???!!! So that's kind of a positive because you end up thinking "wha...? What the hell?"

So, I guess I can understand why some people rate it so highly, because all that I mentioned is what they want from pleasure reading. And that's fine. We all have different tastes. I …

Wow, this was an interesting book.
I read a previous one of hers, but this book was just a spine tingling twisted plot.
When I thought I had it all figured out, I realized no I did not.
I am still trying to process my thoughts about it all, but it was a book I couldn't put down.
I borrowed it from my local library.
