Someone Like Me, M. R. Carey

Someone Like Me opening line: Maybe this is on me, Liz Kendall thought as she tried in vain to breathe.

Someone Like Me

My blurb:

Is it possible that some people can see our ‘other’ selves. The parts of us that are not always there. Francine is dealing with her past, and the fact that her memories seem to be dissapearing. When she is befriended by Zac he wants to help her. Francine can see two of Liz, his mother, when she looks at her. And then suddenly there is only one. What happened to Liz and why now does Fran feel even more afraid?

Someone Like Me

Liz Kendall wouldn’t hurt a fly. Even when times get tough, she’s devoted to bringing up her kids in a loving home.

But there’s another side to Liz, one that’s dark and malicious. She will do anything to get her way – no matter how extreme.

And when her alter-ego takes control, the consequences are devastating.

My verdict:

I always give a book 100 pages before making a decision. And I really battled to ‘get into’ this book at the beginning. However, after 100 pages I decided to stick with it. The writing is good but the story line is only OK. As a student of clinical psychology there were parts of this book totally believable. Worth reading if you don’t mind a slow start to a novel. As an aside, I always find it weird when there is a character in a novel with my name!

  1. I think I give books much less time. I give tv shows around 20 minutes which apparently is not much time at all according to my friends hehe.

    1. We give them one full show unless they are totally awful. Then it’s also about 20 minutes.

  2. I have never found a character in a book with my name–perhaps if I could read Danish 🙂
