The Night She Disappeared By Lisa Jewell is a great page turner with satisfying ending. The story in this novel is gripping. Brilliantly acknowledged characters, and fabulous sense of place. However, mostly it is truly intricate and smart plot. I read alot of spine chillers and this is the best one I have read in a long time. Similarly as with numerous other of her books she goes back in time filling us in with the foundation to the tale going to be unfurled (once in a while it does seems difficult to follow). But, additionally it keeps us all occupied with the story.

Tallulah, who is a Young mother, goes for a night out with her boyfriend, Zach. They leave their child, Noah, with Tallulah’s mom, Kim. The young parents have Kim’s approval for a night out and not to worry over hurrying home early. However, when the morning comes and the pair have still not returned, it becomes clear that everything isn’t well.

The story happens across a variety of points in time, somewhere in 2016 and 2018. The time period does jump around quite a bit, yet the specific moment when the events are occurring is in every case unmistakably signposted. It simply implies that you do have to pay attention as you are reading specific sections.

Tallulah and Kim are fascinating characters. Despite the fact that Kim plays such a vital role in the novel (she is Tallulah’s Mum after all) we don’t get a lot of details about her. We learn of her as a mum and a grandmother and we realize that she has had this dreadful thing happen to her yet that is about it with regards to details concerning her. We are given much more information about Tallulah, but as always this information is uncovered gradually. I love the way that we have queer representation in this novel, and I liked the part that views on people’s sexuality have a significant impact on the plot in this case.

I loved the structure, the detailing and the intense pressure. The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell will make you question what you know and turning the pages to discover the appropriate responses that you need.
