Book Review: All My Lies by Sophie Flynn

Rating: 4 out of 5.
All My Lies: The twisty, gripping and suspenseful psychological thrillerAll My Lies by Sophie Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sophie Flynn’s debut novel has a great storyline and some interesting characters. She certainly shows a lot of promise and I look forward to reading much more of her writing in the future.

As the title suggests, there are many hidden secrets, which are gradually revealed like the layers of an onion. Those secrets are not the sole property of the main protagonist, Anna. At least three other characters have much to hide.

The book gets off to a cracking start but loses pace middle regions. Anna spends far too much time reflecting on her past. Her naivety is very frustrating. However, the story wraps up well in the end and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone to pack in their holiday baggage this Summer.

I admit that I hovered between awarding three and four stars as I read through this book, but settled on four in recognition of a good underlying story and some very interesting characters.
