Review: Daisy in Chains

Daisy in Chains Daisy in Chains by Sharon Bolton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! Twisted and I almost never guessed what will happen next.
Also a different style of writing with presenting handwritten letters, emails, newspaper cuts. Only the handwritten letters are graphics and cannot be zoomed so I had a hard time reading them. Short chapters and a lot of them help this to be a fast page-turner.
Also I did not see plot-holes, but maybe that is just me.
Good use of social media, Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, email, well integrated but not too much.
Really liked the heroine.
Some may view the past when Hamish Wolf and his fellow students and what happened then, toned down and more or less excused as normal Student-Behaviour near the ending. This was not punishable (too long ago), but still Hamish Wolfe gets painted in a wrong light, imho, he is a bad guy, no matter what they say in the end.

Highly recommended fast read, and I for one really liked the ending, others did not.
Also not too bloody or brutal, some abuse, for a long time you did not know how the victims where killed. Hints of darker deeds, which never where described in detail and did not surface in the plot.
