Although I don’t live in England, I keep an eye on book sites there. When I saw this title at Blackwell’s, I knew that I wanted to read it. I had not yet ordered the book, however, so was pleasantly surprised to see A Narrow Door on NetGalley as an e book. Thank you NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions below are my own.
In my opinion, this is one seriously creepy book. A woman with grudges and history becomes the head of a school that has recently gone co-ed. A body is found. That is just one of the dark events. It goes from there. Throughout, the book has a gothic flavor. It can be riveting.
The narration of this one is spot on. Each narrator has a clear voice and both do an excellent job of bringing their characters to life.
This book will appeal to those who like their stories to be the opposite of cozy.
Have you read this one? Will you? Let me know.
