I finished this book a few days ago and once again, for reason unknown to me, I could not connect with the story nor the characters. Here’s the thing. Ruth Ware is a very talented author. Her writing is good. Her plot line moves along. Her characters aren’t particularly unlikeable. But for me, I have a hard time connecting to her books.
The story takes place in Oxford and is about a girl who is strangled one night, and her former roommate is now questioning if she’s sent the wrong person to prison. Ware writes the characters in such a way that you really do suspect each and every one of them. It was not clear who really was the murderer until the end. I like that she made each a viable suspect.
If you like edge-of-your-seat, page-turning stories, you will enjoy this book. Personally, I had a hard time relating to the characters, but that doesn’t mean you won’t.
