Rezension zu "No One Knows You're Here" von Rachel Howzell

Didn't live up to my expectations
blessedvor 5 Jahren

The storyline is really interesting and very well researched; perhaps not surprisingly as it is inspired by the Grim Sleeper case, a series of real-life murders in South Los Angeles, which were made public by a journalist.

It took me quite a while to get into the story, about one third actually. I also didn’t instantly warm to the main character Syeeda McKay. In fact, I never really did although admittedly she did grow on me a little.

My main problem with the book was that it’s very busy. There was just too much going on – the murders, the main character battling cancer, a stalker, a complicated romantic relationship, reunions with old college friends… Some of it distracted from the story to be honest.

I really wanted to like this book. But I didn’t. Not as a whole anyway. I did like parts of it though such as the middle part. Then it took an unexpected turn, which to my mind didn’t quite suit the story. It also meant that an occurrence towards the end, which the book led up to and hinted at throughout, was dealt with too fast. In fact, the ending felt a little rushed and was rather abrupt. I turned the page, thinking it was the end of a chapter but found that it was actually the end of the book. It was an unsatisfactory ending. Because of that I am giving No One Knows You’re Here a rating of 2.5 stars. Overall, it was an OK read but sadly the book didn’t live up to my expectations.
