The Cry - Book Review


Firstly I want to say that I did not receive a free book or ebook of this novel from the publishers as is often the case for my reviews.

I saw it on Amazon.co.uk and it was at a good price.


I was intrigued

  • by the cover and 
  • by the title and
  • by the description
and that is something that rarely happens to me.



So from my opinion

            Is it worth reading or not?

Yes it is!  If you like mystery novels and families.



Happy that ebooks are available almost instantly I downloaded it from the cloud into my kindle and my kindle app for the ipad and was ready to read but of course I didn't get to it straight away because too many other things had been going on in my life so it had to wait a few days.

Well we were getting ready to go on holiday!


I was hooked from the very start of this novel!


Perhaps because of the fact that we have travelled a lot and I'm always so careful about having all my liquids in my checking luggage as opposed to my husband who having travelled for his work for many, many, many years still always has that little clear plastic bag to bring out of his carry on as he goes through security even when he has a bag checked in.



There you are your first hint to the incident that starts off the narration of this novel.

It is always refreshing to read something that is different and to me that is exactly what this book was. There were things I didn't like about the people and the relationships and the events; but without these this book would not have been the different one I so much enjoyed.

Perhaps another reason I was hooked is that we were travelling when I started reading it and also I love babies and mysteries. Normally I am not keen on sad stories because I don't want to waste time on something that will depress me and would much rather be amused, uplifted or challenged to solve a mystery but this time I wanted to read on through the sadness because

I wanted to know the "why?"

  3. That sounds intriguing! It actually sounds like just the sort of book I like to read. I like to read books that are a bit dark, they don't depress me, they get me excited as I'm desperate to know what will happen next!
