Book Review: I See You by Clare Mackintosh

What’s it about?

You do the same thing every day.

You know exactly where you’re going.

You’re not alone.

When Zoe Walker sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper, she is determined to find out why it’s there. There’s no explanation: just a website, a grainy image and a phone number. She takes it home to her family, who are convinced it’s just someone who looks like Zoe. But the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that.

Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make . .

My thoughts

This is going to be a real mini mini review as I read it on holiday which was in July! I know I’m such a bad book blogger and I’m so behind with reviews.  I suppose I could have just left it and not bothered (which I have done with others) but because I loved Clare’s first book I Let You Go and therefore had high hopes for this one I wanted to share that it didn’t disappoint at all.

The thing that I took away most from this book and bearing in mind I read it 2 months ago, is how realistic I felt it was.  The social media culture allows us to put our whole lives online if we so wish so when you get scenarios in books like these it’s easy to think, shit yeah that could happen!  The characters are down to earth regular people and feel like people we all know which makes it all the more creepy.  From the outset it gave me the chills and didn’t really let me go till the end so I was able to read in a couple of days.

It would seem that Clare Mackintosh is going to be among the queens of twists and I will impatiently await book 3.

    I loved this book, I still haven’t read the first one But I’m sure it will be just as good, as everyone who I know who has read it says its great, including you. I’m glad you reviewed this one, as Clare is as you say the queen of twists. I hope there is a book 3 soon too.

      I rated both as 5* reads but I do think that I Let You Go has the edge! 🙂

    Clare Mackintosh is fast becoming one of my favorite thriller novelists.
