I See You by Clare Mackintosh


Book Description:

You do the same thing every day.

You know exactly where you’re going.

You’re not alone.

When Zoe Walker sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper, she is determined to find out why it’s there. There’s no explanation: just a website, a grainy image and a phone number. She takes it home to her family, who are convinced it’s just someone who looks like Zoe. But the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that.

Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make . . .

I See You is an edge-of-your-seat, page-turning psychological thriller from one of the most exciting and successful British debut talents of 2015.

My Thoughts:

I let You Go had to be one of the most talked about books last year due to the belter of a twist that left most readers reeling in shock. I for one absolutely loved it and was extremely excited when I saw that she was bringing another novel out.

I have to admit I was slightly worried whether the author could write another novel to the same extremely high bar that she set with I Let You Go, well after reading it I can confidently say ‘oh yes’, boy has she gone and done it again.

The story feels like a cross between a psychological thriller and a crime thriller. There’s Zoe who seems to be some sort of victim to some strange goings on that make her feel paranoid and a nervous wreck, then there’s also Kelly, a police officer who manages to wangle herself onto a case that she thinks has something to do with what is also happening to Zoe.

I really liked Kelly and I think because of her character it leaves the door open for more books following her in her career in the police force. What I loved about her is how passionate she is to get justice. Sometimes she over steps the mark but you can tell she means well and I liked the closeness between Kelly and Zoe and how much trust they both put in each other.

I See You is a brilliant edge or your seat, whilst biting your nails read. It’s one of those novels that will have you second guessing everything and questioning every characters intentions. I honestly didn’t know whether I was coming or going and by the end I felt exhilarated and exhausted as I had been that wrapped up in the story.

If like me you loved and were blown away by the authors debut, then make yourself comfortable and hold on tight for yet another heart pounding roller coaster of a read.

My massive thanks to THE Book Club on Facebook, Netgalley and the publisher for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.

I See You is out on kindle and hard back on the 28th of July and you can pre order a copy now on Amazon.

  1. I really enjoyed I Let You Go but it confused me as I read it the twisted way from the start so I couldn’t see for ages what the twist had been. It was so well written that it didn’t spoil the book for me at all though and I can’t wait to read her new one. Your review has made me even more excited to read it – I think I’m going to pre-order it for Kindle so that I can have it on release day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Sandra, there seems to be quite a few people who haven’t read I Let You Go, it has got to be one of the best twists ever in a book. I See You is quite different but still a brilliant book. x
