Book Review: Testimony, Anita Shreeve

I’ve got a problem rating this book as I thought it was well written, it caught my attention and I wanted to keep reading – the ‘different voices’ proved a great way to tell the story from all the different points of view. BUT I really didn’t like the way the girl was portrayed and the difference that made to where sympathies are clearly being directed to lie. I think her back story would have maybe given a different view.

Can’t really say any more without giving huge spoilers but now I’ve finished the book, I have lots more questions about the motivation of various people and the back stories as you end up getting a tiny glimpse into a wide number of people’s lives instead of more in depth into a few.

I can’t really say I enjoyed this book – giving it a compromise of 3 stars for the writing, which is very good.
