The reviewers here at FHR both received Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough as part of our Book of the Month Club and it didn’t disappoint.
The first third of the book unraveled like a train wreck that you can’t take your eyes off the pages and the final section of the book was so gripping that it was impossible to put the book down. Seriously. This ending stays with you.
For those of you half way through, between the fascinating beginning and incredible ending—hang in there. The author is leaving breadcrumbs, but our one criticism is that they could have applied a few more of their powers of engaging storytelling to the middle of the book.
Reading this book is akin to running a marathon: a jolt of adrenaline, in the beginning, an exciting sprint at the end, and a whole lot of just hanging in there in the middle.
