    2. It would have earned 4 stars but for the ending The ending was VERY disappointing What happened to Tom, Gretchen and Alice The story left too many loose ends.

    3. SPOILER ALERT I intend to discuss this book as if all readers have read it If you have NOT read this book and think you will sometime down the road, I would stop here SERIOUSLY.This was a rough read, folks The book has some issues, the characters have issues, the editing has issues I m reminded of a line I once heard by a comedian, something along the lines of Let s get them a magazine rack they ve got a lot of issues That would definitely apply to this book.OK, the book plot first I am not a fa [...]

    6. I SOOOO wanted to like this book It had so much potential but after the first few chapters where we are introduce to this dilemma and circumstances and my mind was going OMG what happened what can have possibly happened I finished it out of curiosity than anything, I wanted to see how good or bad the end was going to be It was bad I really liked where the story was going, or where I thought it was going , the first pages got my attention but as the chapters went on, I felt at times, I was readi [...]

    7. Another cracking read by Lucy Dawson sort of spoiler alert I really enjoy this author s books She has a fantastic way of leading you immediately into the story with very believable and realistic characters and an ability to describe the everyday situations of life in a way that you feel like you are absolutely right there This was a brilliant read and the only reason I didn t give it five stars is because I don t like loose ends in novels or movies, I prefer to know what happens next and unfortu [...]

    8. This one was weird The writing was great, the people were enjoyable to read about But the extremes that were taken to reach the endpoint were just ridiculous It was a breath of fresh air to read about how nice and down to earth semi famous Gretchen was This was spoiled by the unravelling of her character over the chapters that followed.It ended up almost undoing the good of mental illness awareness In the final pages, you have no idea what went next, and how bad it got So, to me, it really demon [...]

    10. I didn t enjoy this at all, I found it very hard to get into I kept thinking it would pick up after a few chapters but i honestly couldn t wait to finish reading it just to get it out the way.

    11. I am cross at this book It seemed to be flowing well I was enjoying the storyline then the end came, and went I am cross What was the point

    12. Pensavo ad un noir scritto un po meglio Invece si potrebbe benissimo trovare nella serie Harmony, collezione psyco Evitabile.

    13. Happy New Year The first review of 2011 I could have started off the new year reviewing a joyful tale, but I don t really have anything like that on my TBR pile We re starting off the year with What My Best Friend Did by Lucy Dawson The description on the back compares it to the movie Single White Female While a path of death and destruction doesn t follow best friends Gretchen and Alice in this book, but it will make you take a closer look at your own friendships.When the book opens, Alice is i [...]

    14. Lettura scorrevole, la storia carina anche perch un po finisci per immedesimarti chi non ha incontrato qualcuno che alla fine non si rivelato proprio un amico Il finale per non va proprio, ti lascia con una certa insoddisfazione Tutto sommato un libro piacevole.

    15. As I read the synopsis of this novel I was drawn into it s exploration of the darker side of female friendship, as well as mental illness and the web of destruction it can weave over everyone it touches The reader is swept right into the drama as Alice discovers her friend has tried to commit suicide by overdose However Alice s strange behavior reveals there is to the story As Alice waits to see if her friend will live the story switches between the present and the past tracing her path up to t [...]

    19. This was a little outside my usual favorite types of books, and it was an interesting although unfulfilling read This is a tale of a friendship gone horribly wrong Neither main female character is particularly likable Alice is meek and needy Gretchen is manipulative and a manic depressive who keeps going off her meds Gretchen is every bit as needy as Alice, and over the course of the book, we come to find out how she uses everyone around her, including Alice Alice is no innocent in all of this S [...]

    22. If there is a textbook for How to Write a Suspenseful Novel, then Lucy Dawson has surely read it Her book opens on a suspenseful scene of Alice calling an ambulance for Gretchen, who has apparently tried to commit suicide by drinking and taking pills But the reader is clearly not getting all the information After a couple of chapters that build the suspense of what really happened and whether the truth will out, the action jumps back to when the main characters met Chapters describing how the re [...]

    23. This story was horrible I don t usually put it out there like that I m usually very optimistic about everything I read That s just the kind of person I am but this was not good at all I think what disappointed me the most was that it had so much incredible potential to be a brilliant novel It had intrigue It had a like able and relatable protagonist The novel s antagonist was a character that I would have loved to have hated The situation was set up for a great plot base So what was the problem [...]

    25. Firstly, the positives This book is very well written, and the characters are believable and relatable we ve all been in the Alice Bailey new love scenario and that made the book easy and enjoyable to read.However, I expected this book to be much better than it was, and was disappointed to find that it wasn t the dark and creepy thriller it was made out to be I felt that the psychotic side of Gretchen could have really been exploited, and that none of the things she did in the book were particu [...]

    26. For Alice, life s a bit too boringly grown up lately weekends at weddings and baby showers celebrating friends transitions to a life she isn t quite up for yet and a sweet, stable boyfriend she suspects she s outgrown So when she meets Gretchen for the first time, it feels a bit like falling in love Gretchen, with her air of impulsiveness and intuitive style, is that rarest of treasures a true friend who knows how to have fun Plus there s Gretchen s gorgeous brother, Bailey, who might turn out t [...]

    27. Two stars, because personally I expected of this book.It was not as thrilling and dark as I would ve hoped The book started out great with a shock and after the first chapter you knew Alice was holding something back I liked the fact the story shifted in time to show the reader how Alice and Gretchen got in that situation together, but halfway through the book I began to lose interest and motivation to keep on reading because of the slow pace it was written Closer toward the end everything happ [...]
