Readable but not memorable

I enjoyed this book in parts and it had the potential to be a captivating thriller. Told in first person, the story flits between events in the past and events in the present. However, I found so many of the actions of the main character completely unrealistic, far more than bad judgement and just ended up irritated. I wanted to read to the end to gather all the pieces of the story but I wasn't wowed by the quality of the language, which as it's told in first person is speech like. Readable definitely but I'm glad it was on sale.

The Girl With No Past

I would say that this book was a little too slow to start and therefore may put some listeners off. The central character, Leah, is a librarian (What *is* it with thrillers featuring librarians?) and quite honestly, even the cheapest smallest flat in Wandsworth would be out of the price range of a public sector worker.

It was a bit like re-living a bizarre dream. The crime Leah and her teenage friends carried out was so serious, one really doubted the outcome?
