Right from the very start this book was incredibly gripping. We begin with a couple being involved in a dreadful car crash but what happens from that moment on is incredibly chilling. The fact that people start filming the scene on their mobile phones is horrifying enough but then incredibly those clips are posted on YouTube and Facebook makes you realise what an unpleasant society we now live in. Once she recovers from her appalling injuries, Beth is naturally incensed about finding her terrifying ordeal plastered all over the internet and reluctantly feels drawn to watching them to try to piece together the sequence of events that she can not remember due to her injuries and the length of time she spent in a coma. All she is aware of is that her husband survived just long enough to utter the word “sorry” to her and the fact that someone kicked her in the face while she lay on the ground struggling to get out of the wrecked car.
As if this isn’t bad enough, what follows is a gripping and horrific account of her attempts for find out what exactly her husband whispered to a paramedic while Beth was trying to stop the watchers from filming events. We are then taken on a terrifying journey which ultimately ends in her near death and the final twist, when she eventually finds out exactly what happened, is unexpected and as much of a shock to the reader as it was to the character herself.
I love Richard Parker’s imagination and the way he manages to instil a sense of fear into the reader which keeps you turning page after page until you reach the conclusion of what is always a rollercoaster of a ride through his wonderful narrative. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a gripping good read.
