    2. Shockingly poor, with an increasingly preposterous plot and an awkwardly abrupt narrative, Don t Wake Up is comparable only to the misery of a six hour wait in AE surrounded by inebriated football hooligans For me, this novel sums up everything that is wrong with the over populated female friendly psychological thriller market far fetched scenarios, unlikely occurrences to satisfy the twist component and inane decision making by unconvincing characters devoid of both consistency and logi Shockin [...]


    3. The opening to this book actually made me feel a little sick imagining myself in the same predicament as the main character, Alex It was scary, definitely started off with a bang While I was impressed with the sick feeling the author managed to induce, it took me awhile to get seriously into the book but once I was, I didn t want to stop reading I found this book to be nerve racking and unpredictable, and the last 25 percent is a complete roller coaster and actually stressed me out.Alex is The o [...]

    6. This was a fast read for me, in many ways your typical psychological thriller but it was superbly menacing and I give it extra points for being quite unpredictable not necessarily on the whodunnit level, although Liz Lawler does a great job of obfuscating things but because it didn t feel at all like things would necessarily work out for our main protagonist Did all come good in the end Well you ll have to read to find out.It has that addictive quality that I look for in this genre, This was a f [...]
