Let me first say that I enjoyed this book a lot. I had read “The Silent Patient” by this author previously and had absolutely adored it and went into this novel with high expectations. However, in my opinion, his second novel didn’t quite live up to the expectations I had for it.
While this book was definitely not my favorite read, it was still an enjoyable read. The characters were well developed and the plot was interesting. The writing style and the pace of the novel was enjoyable, but I’ll admit I found the abundance of details regarding greek mythology to be distracting and a bit overwhelming. The author clearly did a lot of research / has a solid background in that field, but I found all the information felt out of place in the novel.
I would recommend this book to someone who doesn’t mind an informational heavy book on an interesting subject, but if you’re looking for an easy-to-read, can’t-put-down thriller, you’ll want to skip this one.
