Reading. Writing. Simply being.
I most recently finished Laura Lippman’s, I’d Know You Anywhere, and unlike many critics, I liked it. Yes, the protagonist is passive to a fault and her reliability is questionable, but isn’t that what makes this book nitty-gritty? Those who say the book is not suspenseful seem to be forgetting that the topic is based on a true story. I think Lippman does a phenomenal job making Eliza’s character dynamic and an even better job at delving into the criminal mind of Walter. I do wish we could get more of his thoughts, but the book is more about “getting back to normal” than focusing on the tragic event itself. I suggest this book for anyone who enjoys crime novels, but also for those who are looking for a light-read with believable characters and situations. It’s a story based on reality and one that is completely believable. For this, I think it needs more consideration.
