Reading. Writing. Simply being.
I picked this book up because I read somewhere that it was a creepy novel that couldn’t be put down. It wasn’t a very deep novel. The surface of it is simply a mother with parasomnia disappears one night and her daughter tries to find out what happened to her. It didn’t find it intellectual, but it was intriguing at first because I have little background knowledge about the topic and science behind sleepwalking. The foreshadowing kept me going, but about halfway the book got…..well, weird.
Without giving anything away, I’ll just say I never would have thought so many things would be packed into a novel of this size–yet, I was still bored. The hypotheses that were presented in regards to the missing mother were a little off of the wall. I think I would have liked it better if it had more science or forensics and less love story and family mystery (if you want to call it that). And, sadly I don’t have any quotes to share–and I do not recommend this book.
