Book Review: Never Knowing by Chevy Stevens

Book Title: Never Knowing

Author: Chevy Stevens

Genre: Mystery, Thriller

My Rating: 4/5 stars

 

Just over half way through this book I abandoned it for about 2 weeks. Finally got around to finishing it today, and I’m glad I did. The ending was pretty interesting and had a plot twist that I hadn’t anticipated.

Basic summary of the plot:

Sara was adopted at a very early age and never knew her birth parents or anything about them. Some things happen and she decides to start the search for her birth mother and father. She manages to locate her birth mother, but when she goes to meet her she discovers something terrible about her conception. Her mother was the only surviving victim of the Campside Killer who, as it turns out, is Sara’s biological father. If you want an idea of what happens in the book just look at the words on the back cover of the book: “Sara soon realises that the only thing worse than finding out your real father is a killer is him finding out about you…”

Overall it was a good book, the only reason I had to stop reading it is because I was getting seriously annoyed at the stupidity of some characters. So much so that I actually almost threw the book at a wall in frustration. I swear the serial killer was the only decent character in the bloody thing. For those who don’t like spoilers I won’t go into any more detail about why they’re all so f-ing stupid.

In conclusion: Liked it, however don’t think I’m going to be reading any more books by this author.
