Imperfect Strangers: A Review

This is another ebook I was gifted by the author, David Staniforth, in return for my review. It’s also another book that’s a departure from the usual genre of the author (honestly something I think authors should risk more often).

Imperfect StrangersI was a little worried about taking this book on as it’s not normally a genre I like reading. I find life can be scary enough without reading stuff that scares me even more, but I’m glad I did. I immediately connected with the main character Keith and what he’d been through.

Although I knew where the book was leading it didn’t make it any less boring to read for the most part, although I felt it dragged a little in the middle and found some of the relationships Sally had with other people to be not quite real. To me she didn’t seem to get along very well with her friends and it made me wonder what had made her like them in the first place, but explaining it might have bogged the story down so… tough to say how that could have been made better.

I must admit there was a part of me that felt very sorry for Keith and kept hoping the book would have a twist at the end and make him the hero, but it was more realistic for it not to so I’m not complaining and I think it’s a credit to the author for making me so attached to his character for me to hope he could redeem himself.

Very interesting thriller with some very realistic messed up characters. Not a perfect story but still well written.
