Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane

To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure how I feel about this book.

It's not promoted as a mystery or thriller--just a novel.

The first half is definitely that as it explores the psyche of a woman named Rachel, her mother, and the father whom she's never known--not even his identity.

Of course, the whole book is wonderfully written, literary, as are all Lehane's books. I was compelled to keep reading--though as I got into the second half--I read much faster. Because the whole story takes a turn around, becoming mysterious, sometimes outlandish, and definitely thrilling. There are so many twists and turns, at times it was hard to grasp.

However, I was terribly disappointed by the ending--unless of course, Lehane plans to write a sequel.

I read some of the reviews written by others on Amazon--most readers gave it five stars, some only one or two. 

As for the writing, I'd give it five stars, for the complete story, I'm not sure.

I'd love to hear from other readers and see how they felt about Since We Fell.
