This book was different in the beginning, starting as a love story and went on to become an uncomfortable read as sexual violence and manipulation were graphically described. After that it reverted to the more psychological thriller I have enjoyed before.
It was a bit too grim for me.
Alice is seduced by Adam's obsession with her. To me it felt as if Alice was living in a fog, under a veil, like there is no clarity when she is with Adam. She knows that she will never be loved like this again, but is it enough, and at what price. Adam leads a haphazard life. Never putting down roots, or settling in one place. Perhaps that's a product of his upbringing. You never get to the bottom of his true history.
The writing is "staccato-style" and takes a bit of getting used to. Also not sure if there was a problem with the kindle version, but sentences and chapters merged into one another without a break, and read a bit oddly.
It was a gripping book, bordering on disturbing and I think the authors got the balance just about right. Read it in one evening.
