Watching You; Lisa Jewell

Watching YouWatching You by Lisa Jewell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There's stalking, and then there's taking an active interest in what's going on in your little corner of the world. I think that's what Freddie tells himself as he take photos and logs what he sees from his window. It's only later that we (and Freddie) learn that he's an "aspie" and as he claims his label, his world both explodes and implodes. His father's relationship with Jenna, Bella and Joey, and perhaps other women is something he's trying to decipher. And Jenna's trying to keep her somewhat insane mother from hurting herself or others, while also keeping track of Bella (it's not stalking if you're concerned about a friend, right?).

What exactly is going on - is it all misunderstandings? or coincidence? or something more sinister? I did guess the Who and What before the Big Reveal, but it didn't for a second keep me from enjoying how the author drips out that information.

  1. First your review was rather enjoyable I wasn't sure if I should be rooting for the stalker, but I guess that is part of the fun.
    Dear ,

    My name is Benjamin, author of The Monster Next Door: The Adventures of Kid Humpty Dumpty,

    I am emailing you because I believe Killin' Time Reading and its dedicated readers would be interested in learning more The Monster Next Door: The Adventures of Kid Humpty Dumpty. I would be honored if you would consider my book for review.

    By way of a back cover summary, The Monster Next Door: The Adventures of Kid Humpty Dumpty There is mystery coming from Mr. Omelet’s house! First, he receives a big, stranger box with “DANGER” written on the side. Then scary sounds come from his house in the middle of the night. Could he have something very frightening like a monster in his house? Eggden’s brother, Boil, certainly thinks so. Humpty Dumpty and Eggden need to find out what is going on. Is there a monster, or are things not what they seem to be?
