This is a well written book that keeps you wondering and guessing about what happened and will happen right to the end.

The only negative for me was that I didn’t particularly like the main character, the narrator of the whole story. It’s still worth 5* though!

I don’t know how typical she is of someone who is bipolar and how much her occasional rather stupid behaviour can be blamed on her being bipolar. I wish that had been clearer but if she’d behaved more rationally, there wouldn’t have been much of a story!

Worth reading.

Interesting read, the unreliable narrator feels very authentic and it kept me guessing. I was however disappointed by the ending

I read few books, but after reading “Mine” this will perhaps read more often. Well written, it holds the reader from start to finish, with turn after turn, twist after twist. I read it in two bites on consecutive days, finding it hard to put down.
