Book -Review The Chain

The Chain Book review

A fast paced original read

When I read what this book was about I knew I had to read it. I love books like this and I think it has been optioned for a film, which I am very excited about. The plot is new, original and fast-paced. The Chain is a kidnapping ring; someone kidnaps your child and to get your child back you have to kidnap someone else's. The book is split into two parts. In Part One we follow one mother who has had her daughter kidnapped and in Part Two we learn more about the people who started the Chain. I personally think I would have preferred to go from one to the other rather than have it in two parts, but that's just me. I think I would have liked a little more information about the people who started the Chain a little more interaction between the two of them, as while I understood their motives, I never felt I really knew them. The twist is a good one and I rather wish it had been there from the beginning, rather than introduced so late as it would have been more shocking. I also found the ending a bit predictable, in fact I knew exactly what was coming but nevertheless I enjoyed it and loved the thrilling ride.
