Review ~ Last Seen by Lucy Clarke

Book: Last Seen


Author: Lucy Clarke

Genre: Psychological Thriller

Format: Kindle

Published: Harper, June 29, 2017

Source: Publisher

While one half of the main voices tear at my heart, the other, Sarah, the mother of the surviving child, tells me of the mystery of the story. I looked forward to both of them, but also dreaded knowing the truth. I kept guessing possible outcomes, reasons for what’s happened, but also was not in a hurry to know. It was a scary tumble into the human psyche, it showed what’s it’s like to be a family and then shattered it with what it’s like to be human.

There isn’t much I can say without giving anything away. Everything is connected in such a way, I can’t talk about one detail without the other. And besides, I honestly think that the book itself-and Isla and Sarah- should tell its story anyway. It’s the best way.

I’m adding five spoonfuls of this story into my hodgepodge, and wonder in what other ways Lucy Clarke can rattle my mind with her stories. I’ll be looking forward to them.
