I'm speechless... but this time I'm not sure it's in a good way this time.
If I have to rate this book only for the twisted idea, I would give a 5! For that I know now that nobody can exceed Courtney Lane! I don't know where she finds her book ideas but there are the most disrupt for sure. After the prologue I wanted to scream at how genius and original her story was going to be!
But somewhere along the way she lost me. And to be completely honest I don't know exactly where. I read the whole book waiting for the end and to know the truth. Opaque Mirrors is a sort of a suspense thriller. I would compare it to Seven for the suffocating atmosphere I felt. The more you read, the more you become crazy.
Whitney is trying to escape her less than ideal life and a mother who make her do things she doesn't want. Whitney has also a dark and twisted craving to watch people have sex while they are being tortured.
She thought to find refuge in Bebletown but she quickly realizes that murders are happening every time she is in a place.
Why I didn't rate the book
By GR standards , a 2 stars rating means it was ok and a 3 stars rating means I like it.
Did I like it? I don't know.
Was it ok? I don't know.
It's really unsettling for me to not know what I felt towards the book. I don't want to say I felt dumb most of the time but it's the only way I can put it.
I was waiting to know what would happen. I was waiting to understand the characters better. I was waiting for some sort of real connection between the MC, someone I could understand and relate to.
And I didn't have it. So I can't rate it.
This book won't deter me from reading Courtney book again. You can't love them all...
