Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for the incredible Someone Like Me by the phenomenal best selling author M. R. Carey. Thank you to Tracy Fenton and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read and review this fantastic book.
About the book:
THERE ARE TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY.
Liz Kendall wouldn’t hurt a fly. Even when times get tough, she’s devoted to bringing up her kids in a loving home.
But there’s another side to Liz, one that’s dark and malicious. She will do anything to get her way – no matter how extreme.
And when her alter-ego takes control, the consequences are devastating.
About the author:
M. R. Carey has been making up stories for most of his life. His novel The Girl With All the Gifts was a word-of-mouth bestseller and is now a major motion picture based on his own screenplay. Under the name Mike Carey he has written for both DC and Marvel, including critically acclaimed runs on Lucifer, Hellblazer and X-Men. His creator-owned series The Unwritten appeared regularly in the New York Times graphic fiction bestseller list. He also has several previous novels, games, radio plays, and TV and movie screenplays to his credit.
Someone Like Me is a difficult book to review without giving anything away. I think the less you know about it when you start reading the more you will enjoy it. It has many twists and turns along the way, with some genuinely shocking moments that take the story in directions you never would have expected.
Suffice to say I absolutely loved this book! M. R. Carey is a fantastic story teller and his characters are complex and fascinating, making you want to read long into the night. In all honesty I struggled to put this book down, it kept me enthralled from beginning to end!
To say more would risk giving something away and this is a story you really don’t want to spoil. All I will say is that if you’re already a fan of M. R. Carey’s work you will not be disappointed. And if you’re new to his work this book will completely blow you away! A highly recommended and brilliant read.
