It had me guessing until the end I will give it that. Friends who have not met in years meet up for a hens do in a secluded home in the woods. Everyone has their hang ups and secrets but who arranges a murder?
Not as good as I had hoped, but still a page-turner.
In A Dark, Dark Wood is split into two story lines, but not the way we’re often seeing with novels today — something present and something circa World War II. The story of the bachelorette party is in past tense, and interspersed are scenes with Nora in the hospital, written in present tense. The hospital scenes are few and far between at first, but when the story hits a climax, readers spend most of the time after in the hospital, a fact I found annoying. Nora couldn’t remember everything that had happened, so she goes on and on about her lack of memory and how bad that is.
As a whole the story was intriguing by itself. However, the main character Nora was one that I found to be a tough pill to swallow. Just like people you will not like every character you encounter but this one was different. Several times I almost put the book down completely. The way the novel ended wasn't the finale you were hoping for as you dredged along with Nora. This was one novel where I felt cheated that the main character didn't evolve to a better state. The plot line however, is very interesting with the setting described in wonderful detail.
Not a bad read...just got good in the middle the ending was so so...
I think the story line is interesting but the plot and character development could be improved. It was a fun book to enjoy in a quick read. I enjoyed Ware's book The Woman in Cabin 10 more.
As a first book, it was okay but not great. The 'mystery' was not too mysterious and it did seem almost YA. A quick read, can't really recommend it, later books improve.
I LOVED it!!
An excellent book, I couldn't put it down.
I thought it a bit boring and all the characters unlikeable.
