Book Review: The Other People by C.J. Tudor

I really liked this one… One of the things I liked about it from the beginning was the uncertainty – was this going to be paranormal? Was it horror? Was it a straightforward thriller? There were elements of all of these woven in the story, and they were crafted together into a whole that left me guessing in a way that I found maddening and enjoyable at the same time. Having your child go missing is every parent’s worst nightmare, and Tudor did an excellent job laying out the stress and the strain that would inevitably follow such an event. I found the characterizations excellent and the pacing to be spot-on.

The secret behind The Other People was presented with just enough red herrings and confusion to heighten the tension, but as things began to clarify, details were rolled out in a way that felt incredible and credible at the same time. This is the third or fourth book with a similar theme that I have read recently, and I have really enjoyed each of them. The underlying concept is a fascinating one, and I think Tudor’s handling of it was managed in an innovative and engaging way.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.
