This was purchased on the recommendation of Jen Campbell, who has impeccable taste in books, although i dont always like everything she recommends, this one was a winner.
Its published by Salt Publishing and is quite a short read of just 159 pages but each one of them is packed with beautiful, lyrical writing.
I think its deserving of an acrostic review
The Book Collector is simply brilliant
Hard to tell fact from fiction, truth from reality, skillfully plotted
Exciting storyline, impossible to predict, just what i like
Betrayal, love, passion and madness are all in here
Obsessive is what Violet becomes about the book
Once I began this book I hated putting it down for anything
Keeps the sinister feelings going until the very end
Crazy is what Violet is accused of being, but is she?
Obsession with fairy tales is just the beginning
Love for Archie is Violet’s downfall
Like the best thrillers I was entertained on every page
Enticing, poetic and full of delights
Creepy, gruesome in parts but so readable
Terrifying and genuinely frightening moments with Violet in the asylum
Obsession I felt with the characters who were beautifully drawn
Reality mirrors fairytale ending
