ONLINE, NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM …
Follow Me is a dark and fast paced thriller that takes us into the world of social media.
It’s a story that kept me guessing all the way through as to who was behind the Hashtag murders as well as what happened in Freddie and Nas’s past.
I enjoyed how the chapters have acronyms as the chapter titles. The author has very kindly put what the acronyms stand for as well in the chapter title, so have actually come away from this novel learning something, which is always good. It’s certainly great for anyone like me, who even though on social media, has no clue what half of them mean!
I have to admit that I had a bit of a hard time with the characters in this novel. For some reason they just didn’t appeal to me. I tried really hard to get a feel for them and at times I was almost there but by the end I still hadn’t really gelled with them. Other than that though, this is a dark and tense read that will certainly keep you guessing up until the end.
The author has created a novel which is very current in today’s world and will certainly be reading more of her books.
Many thanks to Netgalley and HarperCollins UK, Avon for and Advanced Readers Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have awarded this book 3.5/5 stars.
Follow Me is due to be published on the 3rd of December and will be available to purchase from Amazon.
