RATED 5* BY REAL READERS: 'UNIQUE' 'THRILLING...FULL OF TENSION'
'BEAUTIFUL, HEART-WRENCHING' HOW DO YOU SOLVE YOUR OWN MURDER?
Everyone believes Alex is in a coma, unlikely to ever wake up. As
his family debate withdrawing life support, and his friends talk
about how his girlfriend Bea needs to move on, he can only listen.
But Alex soon begins to suspect that the accident that put him here
wasn't really an accident. Even worse, the perpetrator is still out
there and Alex is not the only one in danger. As he goes over a
series of clues from his past, Alex must use his remaining senses
to solve the mystery of who tried to kill him, and try to protect
those he loves, before they decide to let him go. A stunning
edge-of-your-seat debut novel with an unforgettable narrator.

I don't like it
Thu, 18 Jan 2018 | Review by: Sue @ Crushingcinders
In a nutshell, the book is extremely slow and pretty boring. Narrated in the first person by the victim whose unusual unreliable point of view could have heightened the suspense but in reality, just didnít work. I think the addition of a second narrator may have made a difference to the pacing and increased suspense.
I felt the narratorís personality patronising and unlikable and his never-ending circular path of introspection doesnít add anything positive to the story. I just wished he would shut up! To top it off the ending is a damp fizzle.
But, and here is the thing, I finished it. So thereís that. Which is why Iíve given it a second star.
