For the most part, “The Unravelling” is a moderately-paced read, prodding the reader forward with a lengthy back-story about a couple in love, who deserve a happy and complete life together, mixed in with the unsavory details of the actions of a ruthless father truly deserving of a horrible end. But from beginning to end, the author scares the heck out of her readers as she relates the sordid tale of how Hollins nurtures Ryan from a lonely, out-of-place, and confused child—deeply affected by the death of his beloved mother at the hands of his cruel and narcissistic father—to an unemotional and unaffected killing machine. Northwood’s ability to line up all the players—both innocent and deserving of punishment—gives Ryan a playing field on which to release his tremendous rage, giving the reader a nail-biting, eyes-wide-open, edge-of-your-seat experience that refuses to die.
I have to hand it to Sarah Northwood … This is one author who knows her readers well. “The Unravelling” is a journey into psychosis, boasting a madness comparable to that of Hitchcock’s famed character, Norman Bates. By the end of the story, Ryan’s journey to become who he believes he wants to be—and who Doctor Hollins desires him to become—is complete, but true to Northwood’s writing style, his true purpose has yet to be revealed in this breath-snatching cliffhanger.

The perfect life of the story’s victim felt a little oversold at times, but that will vary from reader to reader. But it does help to drive home just how much Jennifer has lost as the stalking takes hold.
The early part of the story is somewhat slow, but the story really finds its legs at around the halfway point. The motivations of all the characters start to crystallize there, and we can see where the story is going and just why things are developing the way they are. That’s where all the seeds of this story start to come together into one and things start getting very interesting.
While the text could’ve used another polishing run to smooth things out, the story kept me guessing and the twists and turns kept things very interesting
Ryan is a very disturbed young man, due to witnessing his mother's death & his father's abuse. He is "treated" by Dr. Susan Hollins for PTSD after it is suggested by his school in the aftermath of a teacher's death. However, is Dr. Hollins' treatment for Ryan's good or for her own personal gain?
Ryan's teacher, Miss Ranger, is truly concerned about Ryan & thinks that she can help him. When she starts getting anonymous threatening notes, her life is turned upside down. The scenes describing Miss Ranger's feelings while being stalked are so descriptive that I found myself looking around the house while I was reading!
This is a disturbing book in many ways & I would advise people who are easily bothered by scenes of stalking, a disturbed young mind or things that go bump in the night NOT to read the book. However, if you like delving into a good psychological thriller, I would highly recommend this one!
