There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I'm putting this book on my list of "worsts" along with "We Built This City on Rock and Roll" and the movie "Toys". So bad. Full of cliché and uninteresting characters. I agree with everything stated by the other 1 star reviewers. I had to force myself to finish it. How could the Nightingale be so good and Night Road be this dismal? Did Hannah write this for Seventeen Magazine? If 100 pages of droning, repetitive description of a mother's completely narcissistic grief is for you, then maybe you will like it. As for me, I think I'll have to read Anna Karenina next. Either as punishment or therapy or perhaps both. I think I'll skip Hannah's other books.

Tells the story of Lexi, a teenager who has not been dealt the greatest hand in terms of family life, who meets up with Mia and her twin brother Zach. Mia and Lexi's friendship is cemented very early on in the book. From the outset you see that the twins are very much loved (and controlled) by their mother - living an idyllic life with a "functional" family setting....or so it seems.
The story skips on 3-5 years and then a further 5 years.
I cannot explain too much without spoiling the book.
Yes, there are 2 parts to it. The Before and the After, I think are mentioned in the book.
All the characters are wonderful, I found myself liking them all.
Initially I found it hard to relate to Jude, the mother of the twins. But I have a close relative who has gone through her turmoil and it made me more understanding of her personality and what she had to go through.
There are lots of references to motherhood. I particularly loved the angst regarding that time in your life when you are teetering on the cusp of teenage and adulthood. The author totally got all the personalities and genders and characters spot on - so clever to be able to write about life through the eyes of a diverse range of ages - from a confused 5 year old, who has taken on the character which is moulded by the adults around her, to the middle-aged adults who are suffering their own miseries with life. Just shows that even though from the outside looking in, that all seems perfect, quite often, it is far from it.
Will be looking out for similar by this author.
