I don’t remember why I got this. Someone somewhere mentioned it and I ordered it from the library. It took eons to get a copy, hence not remembering why I asked for it in the first place. LOL
Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger was unexpectedly brilliant. I read it in one day. Read a bit in the morning while homeschooling the kiddo because I expected it to be crap and then I could add it to my one page reviews for third quarter and move on. Only, it didn’t quite go that way. I almost missed hot yoga I was so intrigued. Read during lunch. And then I took it to with me to get an oil change.
So why is this book so intriguing?
It is well written. No clunky dialogue. No misspelled words. No people talking that aren’t actually in the car. No over inflated description. No head jumping. No time line confusion.
The main characters are compelling. I won’t go into details there because it would detract from the story.
The concept is one that plays on my mind frequently. Technology and just who is out there following you. It’s why I use a pseudonym. Why on some level I’m ok without a publishing contract. I’m ok with being indie. The spot light is not a place I want to be. I jokingly said to the hubs, “It’s hot and bright there.” And I like neither of those things.
The ending is where the book falters in my opinion. I think they want it to be a lady or the tiger type ending, where on some level you wonder if maybe she did really do that. For me, it just wasn’t there. I know firmly what happened. I’m being vague here because I don’t want to give it away.
