REVIEWED BY Becky Cox
For me, Author Anonymous is a journey that I am glad I took. EK’s writing is impeccable as always. Do I like the heroine? Could we be friends? I don’t know but I do know I don’t have to like the heroine to appreciate the story. I sympathise with her struggle. Her decisions were not necessarily ones I would have made, or maybe I would have, maybe I have, but they are her decisions and they are what made the story. A tale…I guess it is, but all while reading I kept in mind this is a true story. Someone lived this struggle, this pain, this heartbreak and that made it so much more for me.
The ending blew me away, and I won’t lie, made me cry. I thought of the butterfly effect. Had she just taken a different path things could have been different. Had she not…well never mind don’t want to have any spoilers.
Author Anonymous is not likely to be appreciated by a conservative reader. It will probably scare a few readers as their thoughts may run to close to the story line and no one wants to look inside themselves and see something they think they shouldn’t. I like a darker story, one that makes me think about ugly things. In makes me introspective. But I have a feeling that is the reason Anonymous wanted the story written and why she chose EK to tell it.
