The Taking of Annie Thorne
It's my turn on the Blog Tour for The Taking of Annie Thorne by C.J. Tudor. This is the second novel by this author and my very good friend and guest reviewer, Julie Williams, has very kindly reviewed this one for me.
The Taking of Annie Thorne is the second book by
C J Tudor and I found it just as enjoyable as her debut The Chalk Man. This story has a very dark feel to it and no doubt will haunt my mind for a while to come.
Joe Thorne returns to his hometown Arnhill to settle old scores with his former school pals. With no good childhood memories due to his Dad and his beloved sister Annie dying there and a somewhat strained relationship with his Mother, his return is not a welcome one.
This creepy tale certainly made me use my brain in understanding as I found Joe to be a deep, loner and weird type. My eagerness to find answers had me desperate to read on in to the early hours.
A fabulous well written psychological thriller that was a pleasure to read. My thanks to Net Galley for the ARC digital copy. This is my own opinion of The Taking of Annie Thorne
