Review: The Drowning by Rachel Ward

What happens if you've done something terrible? But you can't remember what. And you don't know how to put it right ...When Carl opens his eyes on the banks of a lake, his brother is being zipped into a body bag. What happened in the water? He can't remember And when he glimpses a beautiful girl he thinks he recognizes, she runs away. Suddenly he knows he must find her - because together they must face the truth before it drowns them.

My Thoughts
A really quick little review for this fab little book which I enjoyed thoroughly.

The drowning is a really creepy thriller which starts dramatically with the main character being dragged out of a lake and waking up with no memory about what happened to the dead boy and traumatised girl found with him. What I really liked about this book was that because the main character doesn't often remember everything about what has gone on you find yourself uncovering things along with him. I really liked this as an idea as it kept me guessing about what was actually happening and what was in his head especially when some of the creepy stuff happens where it looks like he is seeing some kind of ghost.

Definitely worth a look because it is compelling and creepy from the first to the last page. A really brilliant story.


This sounds fabulous - great review :)
