Dieci anni cambiano una persona. A dieci anni dalla fine del liceo Leonora Shaw, Nora, ne ha fatta di strada: è diventata una scrittrice, la sua vita è scandita dal lavoro alla scrivania nel suo monolocale dell’East End londinese, dalle tazze di caffè e dalle corse nel parco. Della vecchia Leonora non resta più nulla, nemmeno il nomignolo di allora, Lee. Tutti possono avere mille buoni motivi per non frequentare gli amici di un tempo, per troncare con il passato, per incominciare una nuova vita. E Nora ha un ottimo motivo. Eppure, quando riceve l’invito all’addio al nubilato della sua ex amica del cuore, si fa strada in lei un assurdo senso di colpa unito a un assurdo sentimento di riconoscenza verso Clare per essersi fatta viva dopo dieci anni. Sebbene con riluttanza, accetta di trascorrere un weekend in una villa nei boschi del Northumberland insieme ai vecchi amici, e di colpo si trova catapultata indietro nel tempo di dieci anni, in quel passato che ha meticolosamente cercato di cancellare. E capisce di aver commesso un errore. Il peggior errore della sua vita.

I don't think I've disliked a protagonist as much as Nora, the main character in In a Dark, Dark Wood , in ages. Earlier this year, I found Rachel, the protagonist of The Girl on the Train , to be annoying and very unlikable, but I didn't hate her. To be fair, I didn't hate Nora so much as find myself Leggi tutto
Honestly one of the worst books I have read this year, and I definitely cannot recommend it as a tense crime novel!!! In a Dark, Dark Wood is the antithesis of what a thriller should be. It's hugely predictable, very slow paced, has big plot holes, and was downright boring. I found the writing style t Leggi tutto
this is a truly beautiful ARC, one of the nicest i've seen: it's all textured and graphically pleasing and nice to touch and hold: but the story didn't really meet my expectations. i'm giving it a three, but it is a low three. it is an incredibly fast read, and if you are looking for somet
3.5 stars It was growing dark, and somehow the shadows made it feel as if all the trees had taken a collective step towards the house, edging in to shut out the sky. Ten years ago, Leonora ("Lee" "Leo" "Nora") broke up with her boyfriend (James), ditched her best friends (Clare/Nina) and skipped t
**3.5-stars rounded up** Who needs friends, when you can have frenemies?! Frankly, In a Dark, Dark Wood doesn't get the love I think it deserves. Sure, it has a standard Thriller format and a slightly predictable plot, but it also has an intriguing, unreliable narrator, a creepy atmospheric setting an Leggi tutto
3/3.5?!?!!! This book left me in such anger. The beginning was so fast and I was so sucked in and then the middle left me feeling lethargic and as if I were reading as I was walking through mud. Then the end.... The end totally blew my mind. I couldn't believe it happened the way it did... Would I r Leggi tutto

Ten years ago, following the breakup of a young love affair, she left a school in which up to then she had been very happy, lost touch with all her school friends and now lives alone in a small flat in Hackney, in which she devotes her entire time to writing.

This was a mediocre story that had all the makings of something better than it was. I would describe it as a light mystery. It wasn't a thriller. It wasn't dark or scary. The voice of the narrator was lovely, the music at the beginning and end creepy but the story itself was slow and a bit clunky at Leggi tutto
2.5 stars. This was a quick and easy read. I feel that my lack of enthusiasm for this book was largely affected by my expectations being set too high. I really wanted to like this book more than I did. I really enjoyed this author, Ruth Ware's, second novel "The Woman in Cabin 10". I was expecting m Leggi tutto
