My Review:

I was really looking forward to reading The Girl Who Wouldn't Die as the synopsis sounded great and I'd been hearing good things about it.


The first few chapters really drew me in and I started to warm to George. Then I put the book down and picked it up again the following day. I found it really difficult to get back into; something that's not usually an issue. I had to read back several pages to find out what was going on. I found that, rather than drawing me in, it was having the opposite effect and it seemed confusing and all over the place.


I persevered to the end of the book, even though the continual changing of perspective didn't help my enjoyment. It's a shame I didn't enjoy this book more butno doubt I'll pick it up again at some point.
