Wow this book is some piece of work. It feels somehow wrong to admit how much I enjoyed this book as the main character is so disturbingly evil but so, so real. Eva’s story is so scary and the fact that ‘this could happen to anyone’ is so pronounced it just adds to the horror.
I couldn’t believe how detailed the last chapter was as I thought the author was going to leave the details of the shooting to our imaginations as it’s quite a touchy subject in most parts of the world but no she gave an intimate description of how nearly every victim dies. In my opinion I thought this made the book not just good but fantastic, boundaries are there to be pushed after all.
Shockingly good book. Yes its terrifying and even more so for being a fictional take on real life incidents but wow….I loved it!
