Two women, twenty years of secrets and a man who can’t remember lie at the heart of Lisa Jewell’s brilliant new novel.I Found You, Lisa Jewell
First of all I really enjoyed this book, it is a suspenseful, complex and intriguing must-read! I hadn’t heard of this author before reading this novel but I must say that this book really made me want to read more of her novels. The book was well written and although a complex plot it was an easy read.
The book is full of mystery and touches on some tough topics yet it is a fairly light read. For the majority of the book it is fairly slow paced yet holds your attention. It is quite unique in that way, and something I enjoyed to explore. I felt that this book focused on character development more that having loads f action. The characters in this book have all had some sort of traumatic event happen to them for them to be who they are in the present tense. I really likes the characters in this book and although not all are great people they all add something different to the story which added more intrigue and depth.
The book is in 4 parts each of which is split into various chapters. Those chapters have various viewpoints/timelines. One of which is looking at Lily viewpoint trying to find her husband, the other is from Alice viewpoint after finding the mysterious man on the beach and another is looking at a timeline from Gray and an event that happened in the past. I liked this structure as it split up the book and added some depth, seeing how these different viewpoints and storylines interact and come together at the end of the book. It wasn’t complicated or confusing to read and kept you engaged throughout.
With this book I continuously wanted to read on, see what happens next and where the story goes. I read this book quicker than I thought I would as it kept me engaged. The chapters were fairly small so it was a good way to keep engaged in the story.
Overall, I really enjoyed enjoyed this book and I would definitely recommend it to others. I will definitely need to add more of Lisa Jewells books to my tbr list!
