Review: Impostor

Impostor - Jill Hathaway

Impostor was not a book I would have picked out for myself. It's the sequel to Slide, which I did not and still do not plan to read.

It's been a long time since I've read Impostor, but, even now, I remember my frustration. Vee's reaction to some situations or events seemed off or just didn't always make sense to me. 

I also felt like, the plot line with the mysterious woman who was apparently following Vee around for most of the book could have been a more interesting one. Instead though, she was forgotten by Vee most of the time (I wouldn't forget some stranger was following me). Furthermore, it seemed like the author had pretty much forgotten about her until the end of the novel arrived. Then it seemed like the author quickly slapped an explanation together that, under other circumstances might have been interesting, but she didn't do anything with it so it fell flat and cliché. Actually, the whole ending seemed kind of slapped together.

I didn't enjoy the motive behind Vee's actions. It wasn't that I didn't think it was realistic so much as I just wasn't a fan. I didn't particularly enjoy that the author used the type of motive she did to propel the story forward.

I did want to know how it all ended though, even with all of my frustrations, so there's something. But the writing wasn't all that impressive to me and there just wasn't anything I liked about this book. The more I read, the worse it got.
