Book Review: While My Eyes Were Closed by Linda Green

While My Eyes Were ClosedWhile My Eyes Were Closed by Linda Green

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this “read” (I listened to the audiobook). I was concerned that the subject matter of a four-year-old going missing would lead to a dark and horrible ending, but I had no reason to worry. This book is my favourite balance of Thriller and Women’s lit. It’s full of emotion and pain, but also, there is strength and love within these pages. I’m not talking romantic love, but family love.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good thriller. Also, I would encourage those who are concerned about the subject matter of a missing child to give it a go, because they won’t be disappointed.

  1. I’ve seen this one in the bookshop recently and it intrigued me. I wouldn’t have minded if it took a darker path, but that might be my fascination with thriller and horror speaking. Anyway, a good book is a good book. It doesn’t need to be dark, as long as it’s a good story and you seem to be convinced that it is, so yet another one I might read. I’ll never get old enough to read them all, though.

    1. I’m a fan of dark fiction too, love a good grizzly murder most days. When I read this I was struggling with my mood as I suffer with depression, so I was a little worried it would exasperate the situation. Thankfully it did the very opposite 😊. There are so many good books out there, it’s wonderful. I just wish I didn’t have a day job!
