About the Book
Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath.
Beckford is not a suicide spot. Beckford is a place to get rid of troublesome women.
Okay, so I finally got started. The beginning is interesting although it reminded me of Girl on the Train... and it wasn't until I was putting together this post that I realized it's the same author and I am dumb. Anyway, I was instantly pulled in because I wanted to know what in the hell was going on and why all the people were doing the things they were doing. Although there's a whole lot of characters being introduced in a short period, and so for a little while I had a bit of trouble keeping them differentiated.
I think it was a bit after 60% in when everything finally started clicking in place for me, character-wise. Also story-wise, because that's when all the things became more obvious. But that's another point entirely.
For the majority of the book it's pretty good. The ending and beginning were most definitely the best bits, but the issue was with a good chunk of the middle. It fluctuated between keeping my attention and me struggling to give a fook about what was going on.
