I swear the suspense and thrills are elegantly crafted in an average episode of Scooby Doo than in this piece of crap book And literary?? I think it was

    MOBI The Double Bind Kindle ✓ The Double ePUB Ë ✓ stroyki.pro double kindle, bind mobile, The Double kindle, The Double Bind MOBII just noticed I didn't write a review on The Double BindHow did that happen? I must have either read it before I joined Goodreads or was such a 'newbie Goodreads' member I just didn't write reviews yetI've told dozens of people to read this I've bought this book as a gift several times its THAT GOOD Completely unforgettable I 'could' write much about this story but some books are best knowing very little about and just trusting you'll have an 'extraordinary' reading experience Laurel Estabrook is attacked while riding her bicycle through the Vermont back roadsHer life is changed foreverMaybe my favorite psychological thriller books of all times

    MOBI The Double Bind Kindle ✓ The Double ePUB Ë ✓ stroyki.pro double kindle, bind mobile, The Double kindle, The Double Bind MOBII would highly recommend this book to all book clubbers out there because after you read it you just want to talk to someone else who's read it Kind of like after seeing the movie the Sixth Sense There is a prereuisite that comes with this novel and that is to read or re read The Great Gatsby This is a must in order to understand all the references and parallels with Fitzgerald's novel Bohjalian brings the characters from The Great Gatsby to life From reading the other reviews of The Double Bind I see that people either love it or hate it Yes sometimes the language and word choice can be a bit bizarre but I don't think that takes away from the story at all I really think the story works and even if you have an inkling about the big shocker ending Ummmm SO WHAT? That's what's part of the suspense of reading a novel like this to find if what we suspect is true That's why I couldn't put it down at least Besides I don't think that anyone cou

    MOBI The Double Bind Kindle ✓ The Double ePUB Ë ✓ stroyki.pro double kindle, bind mobile, The Double kindle, The Double Bind MOBIThis is a very creative premise but egregiously flawed Most of this book chronicles an investigation that the main character is conducting that links an old box of photos with a homeless man her own troubled past and The Great Gatsby She was a lot interested in where this all was leading than I was I was sort of lazily interested in the Gatsby thread because I just read it but the rest of it was so repetitive and tiresome I could only read 5 10 pages at a time I did not like the main character or any character really and I felt that I knew where it was going to end up Around the last 14 of the book though you start to get a feeling that something else is going on and only then did I become invested in finishing it Unfortunately there's a big M Night Shyamalan ending that was partially cool and partially incoherent and frustrating It made me feel like I needed to read the book again which I would never do unless under gunpoint This also made me permanen
