I really loved this book 🌟 so real, so honest, funny and very relatable. The first part was a little bit slow to me, probably because I‘m not used to read these kind of books (changing that), but the second part was so predictable and, at the same time, really unpredictable that I read it in a few hour. Wouldn‘t even think this is a debut (!!!) Thanks Gail for this book 🌔

My first Ruth Rendell. Do you like her books?

Autumnlong I love her! But I find that I‘m a bigger fan of her Barbara Vine or stand alone novels. I‘m also not the biggest fan of detective fiction & am personally more into the dark psychology and wayward mindscape genre, so I‘m not the best judge in this instance! Hope you enjoy it (: 1y

It‘s not a pan because I cared about the story of one character, and it was almost a bail at the first 30 pages for me... I know lots of you loved this book, but I find so many problems with the plot, too predictable at times, confusing ideias, too many subjects not explored very well. I don‘t think I‘ll read another Celest Ng book 🤷‍♀️🔥

Dolly This was far from my favorite book although I gave it a “pick”. I‘m not a fan of knowing “who done it” in the beginning of the story. 1y
bobregina @Dolly I think the general ideia was good, but not worked out so great. 1y
shadowspeak17 I totally agree that there were too many subjects that weren‘t explored very well. That was one of my complaints as well. 1y

It‘s rare to see a book with a hardcover edition in Portugal. There is only one edition for each title, not three like in UK or USA. I actually used to prefer paperbacks. Now I can‘t get enough of hardcovers, and this one is pretty 🔥

Already finished! This book is so intriguing, so well thought and written. Maybe the end is not the most satisfactory, but I think it‘s perfect for this kind of history and it‘s the first time I read something like this... #womensprize totally worth it!

Starting IT today, with excitement but also scared... not because of the story, because of all the hype surrounding this book. And being a portuguese reading in English (there is no translation in Portugal), I feel like I sometimes miss some of the meaningful parts of the story. And this will take an eternity to read, but I‘m expecting to love IT!! 🎈

Unbelievably good, and scary, and humanitarian. I‘m really interested in true crime but, somehow, I don‘t read a lot of true crime (for no particular reason). After this, I have to expand my bookshelf! 🌗

Sending love and hugs to you from Tarly and Tommi🐱🖤

JanuarieTimewalker13 So beautiful!!! I often think my black and white female has a lot of Siamese in her. The texture of her fur is different from my Tux. Her meow is reminiscent of a Siamese, also. 1y
bobregina @JanuarieTimewalker13 I think Tarly is the perfect definition of a Siamese, a totally crybaby 😹😹 and more photogenic than my black Tommi 1y
JanuarieTimewalker13 Oh you have to hear how my black and white screams if the Tux gets a little too rough for her tasting...it‘s sounds like someone‘s murdering her. Lol I think Black cats are gorgeous!! Tommi is stunning!! 1y

So good... so complex, but simple at the same time. I didn‘t read this kind of books for a long time because they are too ‘childish‘ or not credible enough in my mind. Exception made for Harry Potter 😍 but this is such a good story, with excellent and believable characters. I have to see the movie now 🎥

2BR02B I'm a little nervous to see the movie. Public opinion has not been kind. 1y
DivineDiana @bobregina @2BR02B I enjoyed the movie! Not the same as the book but a fast paced world filled with visual enchantment! (edited) 1y
bobregina @DivineDiana I have to see the movie, I have great expectations! 1y
