WHAT’S IT’S ABOUT
Who do you believe?
In the hushed aftermath of a total eclipse, Laura witnesses a brutal attack.
She and her boyfriend Kit call the police, and in that moment, it is not only the victim’s life that is changed forever.
Fifteen years on, Laura and Kit live in fear.
And while Laura knows she was right to speak out, the events that follow have taught her that you can never see the whole picture: something – and someone – is always in the dark…
We stand side by side in front of the speckled mirror.
WHAT I THOUGHT
I thought He Said/She Said was brilliant and I loved it. I found it compelling, disturbing and the kind of book you can’t put down and stays in your head for a long time. I thought I knew what this book was going to be. Somebody sees something, completely misinterprets it and bad shit happens. I was so very wrong. I really liked the characters and how, in the end, they are all different than you’ve been lead to be and even the villains aren’t clear cut or black and white. There are plenty shades of grey in He Said/She Said. This book has lost of twists and turns. I was led down one dark, twisting alley after another – I thought I knew what was going on only for the author to pull away the ground beneath my feet and leave me in a confused heap on the ground. I was pulled in about three hundred different directions. This is a good thing. I love those kinds of books. In the end, I’d no idea what was really going on and who the bad guy was. The revelations at the end of He Said/She Said left me reeling. All in all, He Said/She Said is amazing. Loved every word.
