I m no longer taking s recommendations for suspense novels I was recently disappointed by A Discovery of Witches, and now Sister is getting a big push Two boring thrillers are hard to imagine Sister follows snobby, racist Beatrice as she investigates the disappearance and possible murder of her free spirited sister Actually, Beatrice has already solved the crime, and is telling the story to a policeman in a series of sessions which is as annoying a narrative structure as I have ever encountered [...]
Sister is a psychological thriller from the viewpoint of Beatrice Beatrice communicates to her missing sister Tess through a letter or diary like entries The plot is centered around her attempts to find out the truth about Tess s disappearance I loved this book Another reviewer described it as a crime fiction novel for people who don t like crime fiction and I agree with that description I ve read a few crime fiction novels and really enjoyed them e.g the Millenium trilogy but it can be a diffic [...]
A very enjoyable debut from Rosamund Lupton, Sister follows the narrator, Beatrice, as she attempts to uncover the truth about the disappearance of her free spirited sister Tess As other readers have commented, the blurb on the back cover is a tad misleading it suggests that slight spoiler alert what follows will be a straightforward search for a missing person In fact, Tess s fate has already been decided, and the novel instead charts Bea s determined search for the truth.The plot is very cleve [...]
What rating do you give a book that definitely holds your interest and keeps you reading any time you can snatch a chunk of time, however small, yet leaves you disappointed and irritated when it ends Which is important constantly being kept pulled into a story or coming away at the end of the book a satisfied reader I do not recall where I read the review that led me to queue up for this book at the library and the line was long, believe me , but I noticed that most of the reviews are 4 and 5 s [...]
So, Sister by Rosamund Lupton I know I m a few years behind the times with this one and, in truth, I d not come across this author before but I was sat in the hairdressers enduring the endless wait for my hair colour to take when I noticed a girl across the waiting area whose hair was a shock of foils sticking out in every direction only she didn t look anywhere near as bored as me In fact, she was completely devouring a dog eared paperback, absolutely engrossed I squinted across the room and co [...]
This isn t a roller coaster ride, rather than a thriller I d call it psychological suspense Even rather than fast paced with a pervading sense of menace, an uneasiness that quietly builds Beatrice the successful level headed older sister arrives from New York to unravel the mystery surrounding Tess s death Her flighty artistic kid sister who in her own condescending and slightly superior fashion she deeply loved.Beatrice undergoes a journey of self discovery when she moves into her sister s seed [...]
This is a great summer read Not because it is light and fluffy, quite the opposite, but because it is the kind of book that keeps you up very late at night to finish and it s good to be on vacation and not need to get up for work or to get kids ready for school the next morning That is how I read it In one night Stayed awake til after one am to do so Something about the way the author constructed the plot and the unfolding revelations kept me turning the pages The shifting tenses and backwards w [...]
Initially, I really enjoyed this book It opens up and immediately grasps readers with its unique perspective the book is narrated by one sister directly to her deceased sister, catching her up on what has been happening since her death It really gives an interesting frame to the novel and its actions There is a lot of emotion in this book and Lupton does a wonderful job of conveying a realistic relationship between these two sisters.Unfortunately, the ending spoiled the entire book for me It is [...]
I loved this I put this book on my mystery thriller shelf based on its blurb, but there s SO much to it than that Yes, the question of what happened to Tess is its central thread, but that s only one of its many layers and complexities.I was absorbed by it, confused, compelled It s an emotive read, looking at every kind of human trait, and I was moved to tears than once It s one of those books where the full story is only revealed right at the very end, and even then you have to think, digest, [...]
Oh my gosh, what a fantastic book I really loved this one and am looking forward to reading Rosamund s other two novels I loved the suspense throughout, and the ending was a massive shock The final page made me cry big fat tears Finding out why the main character was writing a long letter to her sister was absolutely devastating The things we do to try and cope Can t say too much without giving the whole story away This is definitely one that will stay with me for a long time to come.
I thought this book was silly and beyond that insulting in its treatment of depression and suicide Having said that, it was a lot better than any book I ve ever written none Stillh From the first page, I winced at the over blown tone of the main character s voice I felt like I was reading a thirteen year old s idea of what an emotionally distraught person should sound like I was seriously relieved when the gasp ending at least revealed the name Mr Wright was not totally an intentional pun The wr [...]
The story is told from the perspective of Beatrice, and is, in a way, written as one big letter to her missing sister I struggled to get into this one I was never in a hurry to get back to reading the story and I often found at times I was reluctant to read it There was a fair bit of repetitiveness which really slowed the pace of the novel down and I felt that every little movement or life event was documented and probably didn t need to be I think Rosamund Lupton did convey Beatrice s grief and [...]
This book was astonishing The blurb does not do the book justice and from what I read on the cover, it was certainly not what I expected From the start, the book was quite a page turner and it was filled with intrigue I thought that the way it was written through a letter conversation with her lawyer sister was very different and effective The realisation of what the message was and who Beatrice was talking to all along was incredible and quite shocking The concept of this book is amazing.The bo [...]
This was one of those books I really wanted to like there seemed to be such a general buzz around it and I hoped it would live up to the hype Unfortunately, I just found it average overall.On the plus side it was certainly compelling and the plot had me hooked from the start Most impressively, particularly for a debut, I was kept guessing all the way through and didn t work out who the culprit was until the end of the story was very near I did have an inkling what was going to happen when I reac [...]
My mum always describes mediocre films and books as quite entertaining or diverting This book quite simply sums up both these statements it was ok and it did keep me entertained for a couple of days, but it is no great work of fiction.The story revolves around Beatrice who, once she discovers that her sister has gone missing, flies to England from New York in order to find her When her sister, Tess, is found dead, Bea is certain that there is far to the case than at first meets the eye Tess fam [...]
Grief is love turned into an eternal missing Upon turning the last page of this book, I felt as though I got the wind knocked out of me Sister A Novel by Rosamund Lupton is flat out powerful, riveting, and an emotional wallop of a read From the first page, I was plunged into Bee s despair and rage over her sister s death Unlike what the synopsis might indicate and although Bee does attempt to uncover her sister s killer, even when those around her doubt she had even been murdered, Sister, is fir [...]
Grief is the ultimate unrequited love A different way to think of death, to be sure Bee s upwardly mobile lifestyle is thrown to the winds as she digs into the circumstances of her younger sister s disappearance Her grasp on sanity seems a bit fragile, and as the story unfolds, she steps into Tess shoes and moves into her flat in an effort to learn The morphing of Bee from her safely staid life into the bohemian leanings of her sister is interesting Every person attending a funeral has his her [...]
Beautifully written Heartbreakingly sad Potently emotional Brilliantly executed Terrifyingly realistic Happy ending You decide.Undeniably one of the best novels out there It is absolutely amazing that this is Rosamund Lupton s first novel I was so riveted to the pages that I lost three hours of time before coming up for air I m looking forward to reading novels by this undeniably talented writer Highly recommended
I found a lot to like in this psychological thriller about an ordinary person seeking justice for her murdered sister Bee gets called to London from New York because her sister Tess has disappeared Soon she is found dead, and the police judge it suicide in her despair over the birth of a stillborn baby Yet Bee just knows that her free spirited sister would not kill herself, and step by step she does her own form of investigation.The art of the book comes from how it draws you in from the fundame [...]
This book is a debut novel by the author That said, all I can say is I will definitely be reading by her This book was a gripping page turner, with some of the most heartfelt writing I have come across in a long time I really can t say enough about her writing Phrases that made me catch my breath For example being depressed would be so welcome compared with the pain of bereavement I d rather feel guilty for the rest of my life than for her to have felt a second s fear mother talking about her d [...]
I really enjoyed this novel which was a relief as I haven t been getting on that well with some of my recent choices It is outside of my usual genre being fiction and non Christian.The story is told by Beatrice whose sister Tess has gone missing whilst pregnant Beatrice is writing a letter to her sister and tells the story through her writings The author jumps backwards and forwards in the time line from the perspectives of the various characters Maybe that sounds confusing Normally I would agre [...]
This was a book club choice for my mystery book club I know this book has had good reviews, was chosen for some awards, but for me it was a struggle to read on I think it had potential and certainly the mystery within the pages could have been gripping, but it never enticed me in I think it was because I did not care what happened to the characters none of them were stellar, I was not able to attach myself to any of them They all left me with no feeling toward them Therefore, it was difficult t [...]
With Rosamund Lupton, I started wrongly by reading her second book firstly Sister, her debut novel didn t disappoint me at all Written as a letter to her deceased sister was an excellent choice I was hooked to it from the beginning, especially with Bee s prose talking it is also an emotional read, with great twists especially at the end I totally recommend this book to those who like a good psychological thriller.4.5 stars

This is a psychological thriller It was not for me I was not ever scared I thought it felt totally fake, with NOT a smidgen of reality Maybe I should avoid psychological thrillers in the future, but heck I did enjoy Th r se RaquinA I also hated the complicated narrative voice which the book uses Bess is writing a letter to her sister Tess, whom she believes has been murdered relating how she figured out who her sister s murderer was Suicide or death That is one of the central questions Bess cons [...]
Sister is perhaps the best debut thriller I have ever read.It is written in the form of a letter from Beatrice In this letter, Bee as Tess always called her tells her sister Tess everything about the things that happened after Tess disappeared without any known reason Throughout the whole book, you can read the text messages and e mails sent between the two sisters.Bee s voice is very distinctive From the start of Tess disappearance, she believes there has been a crime, because she KNOWS Tess wo [...]
I am giving this book a 2 1 2 to 3 stars For me this rating means it was ok, I liked it, but feel kind of wishy washy about it While reading it I really wanted to know the ending so that was good, but I felt it was a bit repetitive, which is not so good I liked how the author described the relationship between the sisters That s pretty true to life I m a big sister I did have suspicions about the culprit and I was right for once I ll be willing to try another book by this author.
