requestupcoming thrillers and if your fairy godmother NetGalley likes your credit score, wow sorry reading performance, they may send you some better stuff Or you may choose better stuffs dumbass And stop dancing This is not celebration You hit your head at the 3 starred nope it s not even 3 star worthy, let s say 2.5 and rounded it up for honoring the memory of the previous book of the author mediocre train which moves to Switzerland At the beginning I was so sure I found something so intriguing, delicious and exciting A man opens his eyes at the seaside, having no idea who he is and what he is doing there So the authorities bring Dr Emma Lewis for solving the mystery and bringing the man s memory back Wait a minute Maybe he knows somethingabout himself Hey, could he also knowabout doctor s past, the secrets she kept about her childhood and her family Well, I think first half of the book was crazy train ride I didn t want to stop reading I carry this book glued to my body like a regular internal organ My appointment with dentist was so entertaining because I was laughing so hard with excitement and flipping the pages without hearing anyone My doctor forgot me locked in his office but I didn t care I had my laughing gas and this great book But when we move to the second half I started to hear the alarm bells blaring in my head This book could end in a twisted and surprising way or shit hits the fan and it loses its direction and makes you curse about the nonsense ending Unfortunately second option happened The ending arrgghhkk yes the ending made me bring out the inner green giant of course I consumed 4 cups of Americano so I was green giant with shaky hands and I kept punching the wall and screaming What did you do Why did you screw things up And yes my dreamy, riveting reading turned into semi disaster 5 starred reading turned into one star So my average score fell to 3 stars It was really promising start and disastrous ending journey for me Like going to honeymoon at Turk and Caicos Islands and trapped in your hotel room because of never ending rain Wow Sorry that s my honeymoon but at least I had a freezer full of alcohol and my husband watched at least 30 soccer games so both of us were so happy, delighted, over the moon Yes it was not as bad experience as the book gave me Overall I was so close to love this book and gave so many shiny stars I planned to buy a star and name with this book after my third glass of Malbec Thankfully in the morning I reconsidered my decision but end of the book hurt my feelings I still want to readworks of the author because I enjoyed something in the water and of course first half of the book, two POVed story telling were great It s normal to expectfrom a talented author but fingers crossed I know I m gonna love the next book.Special thanks to NetGalley and Random House Ballantine Books for sharing this ARC COPY in exchange my honest review.bloginstagramfacebooktwitter I take no pleasure in writing reviews for books I found less than thrilling, but unfortunately Mr Nobody by Catherine Steadman ticked only a few of my boxes Perhaps it is having read too many books in the genre, but I found the pacing to be slow to the point of crippling, and the climax lacked the twists and turns I expected based on the author s previous novel, Something in the Water If you enjoy psychological thrillers that feature amnesia storylines, this might work well for you, and I enc I take no pleasure in writing reviews for books I found less than thrilling, but unfortunately Mr
