3.0 out of 5 stars Family, Loss, Secrets, December 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invisible: A Novel (Random House Reader's Circle) (Kindle Edition)
Dana receives a call from her 16 year old niece, Peyton, saying that Dana's sister needs a kidney transplant. Although they haven't spoken in 16 years, Dana immediately drives to their small hometown to be tested, but it's too late, Julie died only hours earlier.
While struggling with Peyton's anger and grief, Dana realizes Julie was investigating a cluster of kidney problems in their hometown, and begins to search herself.
Part mystery, part suspense this novel switched between the POVs of Peyton and Dana.
Each of Peyton's chapters begins with a fish allegory, which I found to be tedious and uninteresting, though other readers may enjoy.
The characters were likable and somewhat sympathetic, although I can't say anyone was endearing.
What I disliked most was the abrupt ending. The story and characters merely seemed to stop, and I felt like a final chapter to wrap things up would have given a better payoff for finishing this novel.
I liked, but didn't love this book. I struggled between rating this 3 or 4 stars. I would read this writer again, her writing style was crisp and clear, but if check the reviews first; there are writers I would read anything from, but INVISIBLE hasn't inspired that loyalty.
