Today’s book review is Sleep by C. L. Taylor, my 12th book of 2019. A big-big thank you to NetGalley, Avon Books UK and C. L. Taylor for letting me read and review this ARC. Sleep will be published in hardback on 4 April 2019, and you can already pre-order it from Amazon.
Sleep – C. L. Taylor
I’ve already read The Accident (see full review here), so I knew I wanted to get my hands on Sleep as soon as possible. I was fortunate to have my request approved and here we are today.
Sleep touches the delicate subjects of mental health, grief and loss. The main character, Anna, is coming to terms with the loss of her two colleagues after the car she was driving was involved in an accident. She decides to leave everything behind and escapes to the remote Scottish isle of Rum to start fresh. Then the storm comes, and with it 7 days of absolute hell on earth.
Again, the chapters are kept short, the writing flows and the storyline is twisty enough to keep you going back for more. There’s just enough of mystery and paranoia which keeps the narrative so engaging.
Thoroughly enjoyable 4 out of 5 star read.
I’ve also answered the reading group questions, so make sure you are subscribed to not miss that post. Coming Monday!
