Inhaltsangabe zu „Exposure“ von Susan Andersen

Port Flannery is a harbor town - just big enough to hide in for a while. At least that's what Emma Sands hopes when she takes a room above the local cafe. In Port Flannery, no one knows why Emma and her daughter fled New Orleans. No one can guess how terrified she is that the danger she and Gracie left behind is drawing nearer every day.

Reflektierendes, biografisches Sachbuch über die eigene Herkunft und die möglichen Gründe für eine USA unter Donald Trump! Sehr lehrreich!

Das Buch hat mich sehr bewegt, denn wir wissen immer noch wenig darüber, wie das Gehirn funktioniert und woher unser Ich-Gefühl kommt.

    Let me start my review off by saying that when I bought this book, I had no specific expectations - I'd never read anything by this author before. The blurb promised a nice thriller with a healthy dose of romance, but the book left me vaguely disappointed and even a bit bored in some parts. Susan Andersen is NOT a terrible writer, don't get me wrong! The plot has a decent structure, there are no glaring errors, nothing that would make this book a chore to read. But most characters seem sadly flat to me; you don't get to know them beyond their stereotypes or what you absolutely need to know for the plot. When the end rolls around, what do I really, truly know about the hero, for instance? All too often, it feels as if he is reduced to his disability. And the villain? Well, he's rich, successful and has a lot of influence... He's devious. And that's about it. Why is he the way he is? What drives him, deep down? The author throws in some tidbits towards the end of the novel that feel somewhat forced to me and don't really add anything to the story. But to be honest, in the end I don't honestly care to know more about any of the characters, anyway - they don't grip me, emotionally. I simply can't bond with them at all. A lot of reviewers have already mentioned the sugary-sweet toddler. Her way of speaking and her behaviour don't ring true to me. It could've been cute, but it's just a bit too much. The story itself is rather predictable; in my opinion it never generates much suspense. And some things strike me as not entirely logical. For example: the hero and heroine move out of the hotel they've lived in so far, specifically in order to lose their pursuers. They move into a remote house where they can lay low and hide - and what does the heroine do? She goes shopping with her daughter, smack in the middle of the small town where her enemies lurk! She's portrayed as more intelligent than that. All in all, it was an easy read, but it was a bit like eating a bag of marshmellows - kind of nice but without any real substance, so it leaves you unsatisfied.
