Blind Side

By Jennie Ensor

Can you ever truly know someone? And what if you suspect the unthinkable?

I remember reading some of this on Authonomy and thinking how good it was then. It’s even better now!

An excellent psychological thriller and love story – with all the twists and turns that involves. Although, not your everyday love story – the detail of the Russia/Chechnya conflict and the terrorists attacks in London in 2005 were very well done. It conjured feelings of abhorrence, frustration and helplessness. How useless one is in the face of war/terrorism. It takes a good writer to create those emotions.

Good characterisation. Georgie is a well-drawn main character – just the right amount of edge to make her interesting. Nicolai a good support with baggage of his own. Julian is a brilliant antagonist – loved his part in the story, real on-the-edge-of-your-seat stuff.

Descriptive narrative is nicely done, a great sense of place – I could smell London. 🙂

Plot mechanics are excellent and there’s a good twist at the end that I thought worked really well.

Overall, a good story, well written. A very enjoyable read.
