LoveReading Says

One of Our Books of the Year 2017 |   Oh my word, this book is devious, twisted, and an absolute knockout! The story, revolving around love, passion, suspicion, and deceit, kept me teetering on a razor sharp wire of uncertainty. Sarah Pinborough’s writing is sublime, it’s shrewd, artful, cunning, and as the story sucked me in, I felt the manipulation of the words warping and writhing as they entered my consciousness. I found myself sitting in stunned silence when I reached the very end, then wanted to jump and down and recommend ‘Behind Her Eyes’ to the world. Start reading just as soon as you can so you too, can experience the deep, dark, dangerous depths of this truly bone-chilling and wonderful novel. Make sure you enter with a clear mind, and try not to get too confident as the story will quite happily trip you up and stamp all over you. Sarah Pinborough, I salute you! ~ Liz Robinson

 

The considerable buzz building around Pinborough's new novel (following the already mightily impressive The Death House and 13 Minutes) is led not only from her respective publishers' camp but also, more importantly, from advance readers, and is fully deserved. This could well become a massive commercial success along the lines of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train and it held me in thrall from beginning to end. The tale of a dark, puzzling and twisted affair that goes horribly wrong for, seemingly, all parties, it's unpredictable, tricky, immediate, gut-gripping and difficult to summarise without giving out any of the shattering spoilers and seduces like no other, with viewpoints changing in front of your eyes as you turn the page, putting all you've read before into question in a most clever way, sowing constant seeds of doubt the moment you begin to identify with one of the characters and sympathise with them. Imaginatively wicked, ingenious, and 'that' ending will leave you open-mouthed. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

A very credible thriller with THE most incredible finale. Remarkable story telling.

Louise has ‘history’ with her new (and married) boss, David. They had met at a bar and drank but separated at the end of the night...just. Neither knew that just days later he would enter into her life again, this time as her direct manager. And then a second meeting occurs which truly throws her life upside down and roundabout. Adele is David’s wife. Louise knew this prior to literally bumping into Adele in the street having dropped her 6 year old son off at school. What seemed to have been an innocent meeting (Adele not admitting initially that she knows her husband is Louise’s boss) turns out to be the start of a second secret she needs to keep....

Wow!! I don't think I have ever read a book that has took me on so many twists and turns. The ending will knock your socks off. This is one of the best books I have read for a long time.

The ending will knock your socks off, as I know you will not be expecting it. The characters are really well written and draw you in to believe them.... Read Full Review

‘Behind Her Eyes’ is a deep, intense and disturbing psychological thriller that will grip you from the beginning to the completely unexpected and shocking ending.

‘Behind Her Eyes’ brings you on an emotional rollercoaster as you are drawn into the lives of the book's central characters and the love triangle that is central to the plot.

 Louise is a bored, divorced secretary with a young son. She meets a man in a bar who turns out to be her new boss. David is unhappily married to Adele who is portrayed in the book as completely dysfunctional. The story skips back and forth in time, filling the reader in on their past lives. Adele befriends Louise who she bumps into when she was out walking. All however is not what it seems. Rose wants to tell David about their friendship but she stays quiet and starts to have doubts about him based on what Adele is telling her.... Read Full Review
