This review is from: In the Woods (Paperback)
Though well-written and thought provoking in spots, the author has a tendency to go off on tangental flights of fancy as though she's writing in the midst of delerium. Whenever the story stays on track, it is interesting and there is a heightening sense of expectation for the "who done it" moment. However, only one of the mysteries is solved and the reader is left hanging as to the result of the other. I thought as I proceeded through the last few pages that at last I was going to get my answer. So, imagine my surprise when I didn't get it! Hugely let down, I felt like tossing the book away--something I almost never do. I looked at the synopsis of her next two books, hoping to discover that this mystery was being carried forward. Apparently, not. Perhaps she'll circle back to it in her fourth, or fifth book, but I'm not certain I will stick around and see.
