Good plot, plenty twists and turns.
The main character a little irritating and unbelievable at times. (*)
Interesting
Needs concentration (*)
Very interesting plot, mysterious characters, gripping from the outset.
Perhaps too confusing in places, maybe slightly anticlimactic. (*)
It is brilliantly written and really does draw you in.
I don't think I've ever read a darker book - it's actively disturbing. (*)

Good plot, interesting ending.
Slow-moving - not one of her best. (*)
Interesting to discover techniques mediums use
First half too much obvious prep for later revelations (*)
A look back in time, wartime London setting, good story and characters I cared about
The pace is slow to begin with (*)
Strong characterisation
No Havers! (*)
Couldn't put it down
None for me (*)

The hero's a bit of a limp lettuce. (*)
Detailed, brings together many different arguments and theories
Goes into a lot of gory detail at times, no definite conclusions drawn (*)
A chilling story, menacing atmosphere
Can be a bit slow at times (*)
Suspense from start to finish
None (*)
