Reread this gem 23 years after my first reading in year 9. Apart from a few aged references to Telecom and shoulder pads, this story absolutely still translates and resonates. My view of Josie has changed with my age and experience, making this reading different but still enjoyable.

I quite enjoyed this. A nice little mystery in a high school setting with multiple strands weaving throughout the story. A good, tense and satisfying ending.

Loved this book! There‘s just something about Stephen Fry, he‘s brilliant. I‘ve always enjoyed Greek mythology and this book‘s storytelling makes it so accessible. Having it read to me by the author himself was great.

Really liked this! I got an email from a bookstore I shop at, with a chapter to read and a competition to guess the author. That chapter had me hooked and I bought the book as soon as it came out. Then I had a baby and got too tired to read at night 🤦🏻‍♀️ I put the book aside but found myself thinking of the characters and events quite often. When I got some sleep under my belt I picked the book up again and finished it. A great read!

This was an interesting read and I enjoyed getting to know the characters. The idea of knowing the date of your death and the exploration of whether the characters met their end because of what they were told or if their end could have been different were intriguing to me.

I am really enjoying this series! I do wish I had discovered it a few years in the future when all the books have been published because the cliffhangers are killer and the waits have been so long! I‘m thoroughly enjoying the mysteries in this series, I‘m so much looking forward to the next book being published.

MallenNC I‘m looking forward to the next one too! I didn‘t read the first one until book two was out. 7mo
Cammy1 @MallenNC that‘s good timing, you didn‘t have to wait so long between books! This wait for book three is going to be so long! 7mo

I enjoyed all three books in this trilogy by Sara Shepard, author of the Pretty Little Liars books, none of which I have read. Each had a great twist at the end but none outdid the awesome twist at the end of the first book. A decent mystery series with likeable characters. The cliffhangers made me immediately reach for the next book each time. Found the whole thing enjoyable.

I finished this audiobook two hours ago and I‘m still wondering what the hell just happened. I‘m fairly new to the ‘unreliable narrator‘ concept but felt this was extreme, given that I feel that I‘ve been lied to so much that I‘ve wasted my time sticking with this book until the end. I feel hoodwinked, even though the narrator herself constantly told me what a liar she was. The ending told me so little that I‘m a bit angry. A frustrating read.

The third I‘ve read and they all make me laugh out loud. The brilliant narration for the audiobook absolutely adds to my enjoyment of this series, along with the hilarious description of local villagers and the sharp, biting remarks of the main character. #agatharaisin

This book made me cry! It wasn‘t ideal - a massive twist occurred while I was driving to an appointment (I listened to the audiobook) and I bawled my eyes out, then had to explain myself to a couple of concerned reception staff 😂 I enjoyed the writing style and the way the multiple narratives overlapped to come together and become clear in the end. I read The Pearl Thief first, which added to my reading experience. Recommend. #ihavetoldthetruth

readingjedi Yes, I remember that twist well 😲 #floored 2y

I really enjoyed this book on more than one level. I liked the mystery aspect and I kind of, almost, had it pegged correctly... almost. 😏 But for me the self-discovery of Flynn and his developing understanding of exactly who he is and who the missing January is (or was) played out beautifully and I enjoyed getting to know the characters, as each was not as they first seemed. I‘ll be reading this author again.
