    This is a fascinating book about dysfunctional characters who drink too much and can t settle down to trying to solve their problems The book is a little hard to get into, but once you are involved in their lives, it is hard to put it down The settings are interesting, too I especially enjoyed being in the southwest part of the US via the book.

    This is another psychological thriller chosen by a Goodreads group to which I belong, and which kept me engrossed for several weeks this summer It s a long book, but well worth the read It journeys deep inside the mind of Mara, a complex, disturbed woman with a truly shocking past What you see is what I am This is me, Mara says in Chapter 3, but even by then we know nothing could be further from the truth She s like an iceberg with its deep, secret depths.Mara s tragic story does not make This is another psychological thriller chosen by a Goodreads group to which I belong, and which kept me engrossed for several weeks this summer It s a long book, but well worth the read It journeys deep inside the mind of Mara, a complex, disturbed woman with a truly shocking past What you see is what I am This is me, Mara says in Chapter 3, but even by then we know nothing could be further from the truth She s like an iceberg with its deep, secret depths.Mara s tragic story does not make easy reading and just when you think you ve understood why she is what she is, something evenshocking is revealed about her past, to make you wonder just how she survived to present a relatively normal fa ade to the world She isn t easy to get to know or understand, but it s impossible not to feel some sympathy for her, despite the flawed way she exists and treats everyone who tries to love her Mara is a fascinating character and one who will haunt me for a very long time I feel strangely empty now that I ve finished the story and no longer inhabit Mara s world.I enjoyed the parallel account from Jack almost as much as Mara s story Here is another disturbed character that is so well presented by the author He strives to atone for his unforgivable past deeds, putting his life on hold for many years as he watches and waits for the right moment to act The depth of his remorse makes him sinister and unpredictable, but strangely noble.Carolyn Young s writing is beautifully executed, her prose almost lyrical at times, but the editing lets it down just a little Throughout the story, missing words kept tripping me up, making me re read sentences A book of this quality deserves to be flawless and the publishers have not done it full justice in my opinion The pace of this story makes ita psychological drama than thriller, but whatever its genre, The Perfect View is a fascinating, well told story and I would readfrom this author

    Being a fan of thriller novels a lot of times they are the only genre of books exciting enough to keep me interested , I was excited to give this one a try I can also say that I have some mental health issues of my own depression and anxiety , though I don t suffer from it quite as badly as Mara.I know some readers have a difficult time with overly detailed writing, but please don t misunderstand what other reviewers are saying It s not the detail itself, I think it s that the pacing of a Being a fan of thriller novels a lot of times they are the only genre of books exciting enough to keep me interested , I was excited to give this one a try I can also say that I have some mental health issues of my own depression and anxiety , though I don t suffer from it quite as badly as Mara.I know some readers have a difficult time with overly detailed writing, but please don t misunderstand what other reviewers are saying It s not the detail itself, I think it s that the pacing of a thriller novel is expected to be quite fast, and sometimes the details feel like it s slowing things down BUT that s NOT the case in this book I personally thought the pacing and details were balanced quite well, which is not an easy thing to do.I love Dan Brown s thrillers, and this book really falls into the same category obviously just without all the historical influence Try it out, you won t be disappointed

    This book entertained me One thing that I spotlight from this reading is that how descriptive a person can be when it comes to describing things It may not be a good thing for some people, but not for me I am the kinda person who loves detail The Perfect View is a thriller novel with psychological touch The author has done a wonderful job in setting the plot and building the characters The plot stays on track, no useless scenes or fluff The story reveals itself naturally, through action a This book entertained me One thing that I spotlight from this reading is that how descriptive a person can be when it comes to describing things It may not be a good thing for some people, but not for me I am the kinda person who loves detail The Perfect View is a thriller novel with psychological touch The author has done a wonderful job in setting the plot and building the characters The plot stays on track, no useless scenes or fluff The story reveals itself naturally, through action and dialogue I enjoyed the many twists and turns this dark tale takes, driving the reader mad until they too have solved the mystery
