that read myread my of that book it "and for those that read my review of that book it not a compliment
i just ended up losing interest in everyonejust ended up losing interest in everyone only kept reading to see if I was right about the villain in this one I was off but honestly the author Mars Journey doesn t even lay out any clues for you to get this is the bad guygirl being vague on purpose It comes out of left field and the wrap up is just ham fisted Ella The Witness is taking the train and noticed two young girls She immediatelyecides she should keep an eye on them when two young men board the train and start talking to them She eavesdrops and realizes the two men are fresh out of jail and the girls and the men end up talking and Beating the Odds - From shocking childhood abuse to the embrace of a loving family, one mans true story of courage and redemption drinking together She overhears the one girl s name Anna and is able to piece together that she lives on a farm Ella is tempted to call Anna s parents or warn the girls for talking to these men When she walks to get something and overhears one of the girl s having sex in the bathroom Sarah she gets upset that she thought they were nice girls and washes her hands of them When Ella wakes the nextay after getting blitzed she is afraid she may have Climax (Double Alchemy, done something like call the girls mothers Turning on the TV she is floored to see a broadcast talking about one of the girl s she saw on the train Cue a year later Driscoll follows several people throughout the book The chapters are titled The Witness Ella The Father Henry The Friend Sarah The Investigator Matthew and Watchingno spoilers to who that is Honestly the whole book reads as repetitive as anything Ella s sections are just herefending why she Peace DeLeos Action Thriller Singles didn t get involved she brings up Sarah having sex in the bathroom and her own son watching porn and reading magazines with aisapproving air and then realizing she needs to get some help when she starts receiving mysterious postcards in the mail blaming her for Anna s Roots and Blossoms disappearance Matthew isealing with the fact he s about to become a new father amd is still adjusting to his life after leaving the police force Henry keeps going over the last thing Anna said to him And Sarah is hiding a lot than you would think about her home life Driscoll chooses to tell Ella s sections in first person and the other sections except for the Watching sections in third person It s hard to keep adjusting to the shift in narratives Especially because each chapter is only a couple of pages long I m baffled that Driscoll just The Humanities, Higher Education, and Academic Freedom didn t stick with Ella Maybe sheidn t cause there s not a lot there Ella is a florist happily married and has a son Her focus on Anna would make sense if we got to see any semblance of the things that Driscoll Shakespeare describes after the fact Ella apparently got harassed when her name as a witness was released People blamed her for not intervening In theay of social media I can believe that something like this could have happened It would have made sense if Driscoll showed that Because a year later it seems most people have forgotten her except for Anna s family and the police The writing was so so I realized after finishing this the main reason I got annoyed is that there is literally no clues to who the killer is and why I think the main reason I loved The Tokyo Zodiac Murders is that the author makes sure that there are real clues for you to follow as a reader You can solve the crime The author for this book throws out a twist that is ridiculous and you get no hint of who the killer is at all Heck I BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) don t care for The Girl on the Train but at least the author left enough there for you to connect theots The flow isn t great The book has bright spots here and there I liked Matthew and that was about it I m realizing now maybe him being the main character would have worked better Heck Driscoll could have turned this into a series if she had him be the lead The ending was just the author trying to tie up loose ends I honestly think there was a lot left to explain but I was just glad to be one with this At least I got it as a Kindle First pick for Septembe. Anniversary appeal reveals that Anna’s friends and family might have something to hide Anna’s best friend Sarah hasn’t been telling the whole truth about what really happened that night and her parents have been keeping secrets of their ownSomeone knows where Anna is and they’re not telling But they are watching Ella. This is a well one well paced mystery The main mystery is "What Happens To Teenager "happens to teenager Ballard She and her friend Sarah are on a train to London when they meet two men carrying garbage bags who admit to just getting out of prison Mother and wife Ella overhears this and wonders if she should call the parents When Anna goes missing overnight Ella is wracked with guilt for not acting sooner and is also vilified in the media including social media for not Caveman Alien’s Riddle (Caveman Aliens, doing something before it was too lateEveryone has secrets which we know because the story is told from multiple points of view Sarahoesn t tell the police
The Whole Truth Swhole truth Anna s isn t the whole truth Ella s son has secrets What s initially ominous to Ella however is the series of threatening notes she receives and also Teaching white South African literature in high school doesn t tell the police about Sheoes let a private investigator know Matthew uit the police force to become a PI for reasons that are kept secret to the reader for most of the bookI had a little trouble buying that everyone would blame a mother who A Wish Your Heart Makes didn t call the parents on the fact the girl went missing Other than that though I really liked the characters of Matthew in particular Ella s guilt seemed misplaced but I m not a mother and happily I ve never been in the position of watching a teenage girl make terrible choices and then go missing I thought this was fun and an easy fast read Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to review this bookFor of my reviews please visit 3 StarsAnna and Sara lied to their parents and instead of going to watch a movie they were seen in a train That night Anna was missing and Sara couldn t remember what happened But there is a witness who saw them in the train with two men who got out of prison Ella the witness heard their conversations and wanted to call but she wasistracted at that moment and sometime later she saw Anna s picture as a missing girl One year later Anna s still missing Sara still can t remember and Ella feels guilty and blames herself for not calling And let s not forget about nasty notes she receives like WATCH YOURSELFI DOIt was an okay read for me It was real slow But my main complaint is the author wrote about the characters personal life and less about Anna s missing or the mystery It s told in multiple POV both in 3rd and 1st person and one of them was a private investigator that Ella was hired but I really Agricultural Development: An International Perspective (Johns Hopkins Studies in Development) didn t understand his role in the story because until the first 70% he was with his wife and his newly bornaughter like all the time Anna s father most of the time thought about his past with his father and his past with his girls Ella was stressed out about her son The Watcher s POV was too short and actually it Loves Abuse Warrior Camp didn t have anything to say it wasn t even thrilling Sara was involved with her personal life So there was less about Anna and her missing The characters personal life was a bit too much in this story for me But it was unpredictableThanks to Teresa Driscoll Netgalley and Thomas Mercer for the advancedigital copy in exchange an honest review Sothe secrets each character held kept me intrigued but it was all for naught I HATE books like this and resent the shitty lazy unfair Contemporary African literature device the author uses to wrap things upSwitching between 1st and 3rd person narration was just the cherry on the crap cake A teenage girl goes missing after a special night out with a girlfriend Story told primarily from the viewpoints of the witness the private investigator the father and the friend I reallyidn t mind the way this was put together although at this point it would be positively refreshing to read something that 120 Content Strategies for English Language Learners does not employ the use of a multiple POV framework I enjoyed it well enough but found myself thinking about what I wanted to read next before getting this one finished This was a Kindle First offering and Io appreciate the opportunity to read it at no charge Unfortunately this was a it of a meh read for me So many people and POV s which I usually enjoy and shifts between first and third person muddled up the plot for me and even though the writing was good I never felt the characters Making Me Crazy (Multicultural Romance Series: NHL Billionaire Meets African American Beauty Book 1) developed very much apart from Ella I wasefinitely intrigued by the story but by the half way point found myself a little confused and not terribly invested Still I wanted to know how it would end and what had actually happened to Anna the missing girl The resolution felt a little rushed after such a long build up and a little unsatisfying at that All the same I Alt 38 Environmental Transformations didn t think it was a bad book just not a great book either Find reviews and bookish fun at A fast enjoyable read that held my interest but ultimately left meisappointed The. What would it take to make you interveneWhen Ella Longfield overhears two attractive young men flirting with teenage girls on a train she thinks nothing of it until she realises they are fresh out of prison and her maternal instinct is put on high alert But just as she’s ecided to call for help something stops her The next. Final reveal lacked excitement for me All the "build up and backstories were suspenseful and they efinitely served their purpose but the resolution was rushed and "up and backstories were suspenseful and they Before the Door Closes definitely served their purpose but the resolution was rushed and Every character had something they were hiding which made for a good suspect list I had to keep reading because the next chapter might be the one where the really big secret was revealed While I was able to pick up some little things here and there Iid not figure out the story behind Anna s isappearance Some small elements of the story seemed unnecessary they idn t add anything to the plot Sal s pregnancy is one exampleI enjoyed this book
AND IT WAS A SOLID 4it was a solid 4 read until the isappointing ending I struggle now with how many stars to give this it was I struggle now with how many stars to give this it was enjoyable read and just because I idn t care for the resolution and I They Left Great Marks on Me didn t see it comingoesn t mean I should rate it lower In fact maybe I should rate it higher because I Deans and Truants didn t see it coming I ve settled on somewhere between 35 4 so I will round up to 4 stars A riveting thriller that sees Ella on a train bound for London seated near he two teenage girls Two young men enter the carriage and it soon becomes apparent that they are fresh out of jail Thisoesn t Talking About Trees deter the girls however and they soon strike up a friendship Ella becomes increasingly worried about them but then stops herself from intervening at the last minuteThe nextay one of the girls Anna is reported missing and Ella is beside herself wondering if she could have helped the girl instead of turning away Anna s friend Sarah is saying much about what had happened to them the previous evening and the police soon run out of leads But what is Sarah hiding Who else in the girls families are keeping secrets And who is sending Ella anonymous postcards I found myself frantically racing through this book in one sitting trying to work out what had happened and kept coming up with what the police Alien Contact didead ends I will The Rules of Engagement for Overcoming Your Past definitely be looking for of this authors work and recommend this book to all lovers of mysteries and psychological thrillers I listened to this audiobook at the beginning of January As soon as I wasone I typed my review into a Word Bibliographia Aethiopica II document However I can t find it anywhere now I alsoeleted all of my notes since I was Hair Raising: Beauty, Culture, and African American Women done my review So I am going to try my best I am still relatively new to audiobooks but I m starting to enjoy them I find them perfect to listen to whileoing chores or when I m in the car It s also nice to give my eyes a break sometimes I was really intrigued after reading the Say It Plain A Century of Great African American Speeches description for I Am Watching You If I was on a train or other public transportation and I saw young women getting ready to head off with men just released from prisonwould I intervene First of all I would probably have earphones in and wouldn t hear their conversation But if Iid hear it I m honestly not sure what I would Saving Spring doThe story was told from multiple points of view and I normallyon t have an issue with that We had Ella The Father The Friend The PI and With so many characters and their individual stories there was a lot to keep track of and at times things Making the Corn Belt: A Geographical History of Middle-Western Agriculture didn t seem to fit For the most part I was able to keep up but I occasionally found myself gettingistracted thinking of everything but what I was listening to The multiple characters and story lines left me feeling a bit Rightsizing the Academic Library Collection disconnected from the story but I was still intrigued and really wanted to find out what happened to Anna Though Iid have a few issues with the novel overall I enjoyed it There was a Neglect-The Silent Abuser decent amount of mystery and suspense and I was very surprised by the ending I never saw it coming I Am Watching You is a thrilling suspense novel by Teresa Driscoll There is a reason it has been on the Bestseller charts it is a very gripping well told tale Ella watches on a train as two local girls on their way to London get mixed up with two unsavory men just released from prison She wants to say something butoesn t The next Academia Dream day she finds out that one of the girls has gone missing Consumed with guilt she goes to the police but of course it s really too late This however is just the beginning of the harrowing tale The girl is missing the two men are missing Ella is receiving threats and everyone has secrets Perhaps because I too live in a small community but all aspects in this story seemed uite real The inter connectedness of everyone the secrets and lies Told from multiple view points we the reader see how each person s involvement overlaps and the butterfly ripples were created I also now see that there were so many clues along the way that I completely overlooked Most likely I will re read it just to spot them all Day she wakes up to the news that one of the girls beautiful green eyed Anna Ballard hasisappearedA year later Anna is still missing Ella is wracked with guilt over what she failed to o and she’s not the only one who can’t forget Someone is sending her threatening letters letters that make her fear for her lifeThen an. .
