So today is my stop on the blog tour for The Other You by J. S. Monroe, a big thank you to Victoria from Head of Zeus for inviting me to take part, let’s just get stuck in I’m super excited to share this one with you!
Is he who you think he is?
Kate used to be good at recognising people. So good, she worked for the police, identifying criminals in crowds of thousands. But six months ago, a devastating car accident led to a brain injury. Now the woman who never forgot a face can barely recognise herself in the mirror.
At least she has Rob. Kate met him just after her accident, and he nursed her back to health in his high-tech modernist house on the Cornish coast. When she’s with him, the nightmares of the accident fade, and she feels safe and loved.
Until, one day, she looks at Rob anew – and knows, with absolute certainty, that he has been replaced by an impostor. Is she right? Have her old recognition skills returned? Or is it all in her damaged mind?
Ahhhh I just want to start writing a massive essay about every single thing in this book because it was so good! It’s my first 5 star of the year and I’ve decided this year that I’m not going to be throwing them around very lightly.
This plot is so intricate and complex with lots of little twists and turns which are done so well and they all link up. I can’t even tell you anything about the book, just know that everytime I thought I knew which direction the book was heading in a curve ball was thrown my way! I had to keep updating my partner because I needed to talk to somebody about this and I kept shouting at the book and at one point I think I actually swore.
I went into this book not knowing much, I lightly skimmed the synopsis and knew that it was something I wanted to read, I recommend doing this as it makes the reading experience so much more shocking. I really wish I could tell you more about this but I want you to experience it for yourselves. I actually stayed up until 4am Saturday morning to finish this book as every chapter something would happen and I just couldn’t put it down.
Don’t start reading this book until you have a free schedule and you don’t need sleep!
