I Am Watching You Reviews
A teenage girl goes missing after a special night out with a girlfriend. Story told primarily from the viewpoints of the witness, the private investigator, the father, and the friend. I really didn't mind the way this was put together, although at this point it would be positively refreshing to read something that does not employ the use of a multiple POV framework. I enjoyed it well enough, but found myself thinking about what I wanted to read next before getting this one finished.

Δεν ξερω πραγματικα τι να πω για αυτό το βιβλιο. Ασκοπες περιγραφες εσωτερικοι μονολογοι ελαχιστη δράση. Μια ιστορία με πολλούς υπόπτους αλλα με εναν φταίχτη που ενιωσα σαν να μου τον πεταξαν κυριολεκτικά στα μουτρα στις 20 τελευταίες σελιδες απλα για να τελειώσει το βιβλιο. Χωρις επεξηγηση χωρις λεπτομέρειες. Δηλαδη διαβασα 300 σελιδες γεματες σκεψεις και περιγραφες για να εχει αυτο το τελος? Δεν με επεισε. Δεν ενιωσα συναισθημα για κανεναν απο τους ηρωες. Μου φανηκαν αχρωμοι και ανευροι. Γεγον ...more

Well great to join in a buddy read, with a group of us reading this book for January.
Some great points about this book, firstly I do enjoy the stories/chapters from all the different main characters in the book.
A great opportunity to build the story through the characters and plots, build the tension and it does work so well.

I LOVE this author's writing and her previous two novels are among my favourite reads ever so I was eagerly waiting for this book. And wow! With this amazing, unputdownable, suspenseful masterpiece, Teresa Driscoll proves that she is right up there with the best thriller writers of today. This book is genius! What I admire most about this author is her beautiful writing, spare and yet heart-wrenching, and this book combines that wonderful writing with a tense, page-turning plot. A tense, pacy, s ...more
DNF .. don't think I've ever given up on a book so fast! I immediately hated the way it was written, the self evaluation of her naivety and the fact it just didn't feel at all realistic... I mean, come on, would anyone overhear a conversation and then start thinking about ringing a strangers mother to warn them their daughter is associating with the wrong type of person?????
There are elements that are very good in Teresa Driscoll’s book, “I Am Watching You.” At the same time, there are other aspects of the book that were bothersome.
The book is composed of short chapters, with a number of characters relating the story. The main character is Ella, identified in her titled chapters as The Witness. Ella was on a train ride and thus became one of the last people to see Anna before she disappeared. She was also able to describe the two young men who had approached Anna a ...more
This is a well-done, well-paced mystery. The main mystery is what happens to teenager Anna Ballard. She and her friend Sarah are on a train to London when they meet two men carrying garbage bags who admit to just getting out of prison. Mother and wife Ella overhears this and wonders if she should call the parents. When Anna goes missing overnight, Ella is wracked with guilt for not acting sooner and is also vilified in the media—including social media—for not doing something before it was too la ...more
