How do I even begin to talk about this book? I’m still in shock from not only it’s ending but from it in its entirety!
This book is so different from anything I’ve read in such a long time, it’s done in such a brilliant way that it had be hooked from the very beginning. Truth be told, it had me hooked just from its description and from the reviews I had read about it. The way this book is written and the way that the storyline is set up in such a way, is amazing and keeps you guessing, right up until the very end. How everything all links back to each other! It’s very cleverly done. The characters are written so brilliantly, their interactions and even though (with no spoilers) they are meant to be the same character, they are so different and it’s highlighted and executed brilliantly.

The most inventive debut of the year twists together a mystery of such unexpected creativity it will leave readers guessing until the very last page”
I have been wanting to read this book for a while for several reason and omg did it hold up. This is one of the few books where there was so much hype surrounding it, for me anyway, and it didn’t disappoint me. I had been seeing this book everywhere and I needed to see why this book was so exciting, plus my surname is Hardcastle, so there was also that aspect that made me pick this up. Like I said, I was not disappointed that I did!!
This book is so creative with writing to match and it doesnt let you down. With an action filled book, and with so much going on, the author does an amazing job of bringing it all together in the end. The way that every character is brought together and create their own individuality, it’s so clever. The way that Aiden Bishop, the main character in this story, uses each day, uses each of the bodies, the characters, their minds, their traits, and how it’s all brought together, is amazing. This book had me thinking the entire time, wondering who, when and why? And so many more questions. And thankfully, I got my questions all answered by the end of the book. Now I just need to know what happened after the book left off… Sequel anyone? But will that also spoil this book because I can imagine my own future for these characters now.
And to think I bought this book because I share the same last name as Evelyn and that doesn’t happen often…. and because of the amazing reviews and hype I read about the book. Of course! I am so glad that I did!!
