Dec 29, Gordon McLean rated it liked it. I'm still not sure if I enjoyed this book or not. The book starts out with what seems to be a fairly straightforward, if sad, tale of a woman who is struggling with life and her increasingly beligerent, Alzhiemiers ridden mother.
At one point it seems to veer towards horror, only to quickly retreat towards chilling thriller. That's not to say it's not a good story, but it doesn't feel particularly well paced and, without exploring the main character more in the earlier parts of the book, it's hard I'm still not sure if I enjoyed this book or not.
That's not to say it's not a good story, but it doesn't feel particularly well paced and, without exploring the main character more in the earlier parts of the book, it's hard to fathom some of her decisions. A lot of the reveal in the last third starts to brings things together but, by that point, I'm only really reading to confirm that my guess at what the 'twist' was was correct it was. The last third of the book is briskly paced and provides an intriguing end for sure, but by then I'm not reading because I care what happens to our main character and it all falls a bit flat.
Some clever ideas, a few too many leaps of faith suspension of disbelief required but perfect for a lazy day with low expectations. Jul 21, Shalini Boland rated it it was amazing Shelves: suspenseful , mystery , thriller , psychological-thriller. This is a complex psychological thriller that gets under the skin and unsettles. There is mystery, suspense, and much creepiness - the hallmark of a Denzil novel.
So many interesting characters that I ended up suspecting them all, but then the story twists and you're like. Loved it. Now that was, my cup of tea!!! Now you. Dec 01, Sharon rated it liked it. This was good except for the end. I enjoyed the mystery of who was doing all these things to poor Sophie. While I didn't figure out who was doing the stalking, I sort of figured out what memory Sophie was suppressing.
And then the plot twist happened and I was like Whoa didn't see that coming. This is getting real good now, But then it was like okay, time to wrap this book and things moved too quickly.

When I turned the page and it was on the epilogue I was like, Wait. I think the author wanted the readers to maybe come up with their own conclusion, but I would have rather have had more info as to what happened from the last page to the epilogue.

I listened to the audiobook This book is a psychological thriller in which we follow Sophie, the daughter of an abusive 55 years-old woman who has Alzheimer.

Some "twists" were pretty transparent but this is a case where the writing and ambience drew me in anyway. Sophie was interesting to me.. I was rooting for her. I'd recommend this to someone looking for a dark domestic thriller, and I'll definitely read another by this author. Feb 21, Pamela Crane rated it really liked it Shelves: thrillers-suspense-mystery.
This was my first foray with Denzil, and I was glad I took the chance with her. This psychological thriller moves along with a steady gait as we follow Sophie, a woman broken by her abusive mother who now suffers from Alzheimer's. When strange happenings begin threatening Sophie and convincing her delusional mother to harm herself, Sophie begins wondering who is behind the shadow she keeps seeing. It reads almost like a ghost story, with dark shadows and a lot of uncertain events, as the plot un This was my first foray with Denzil, and I was glad I took the chance with her.
It reads almost like a ghost story, with dark shadows and a lot of uncertain events, as the plot unfolds. Denzil's writing is simple yet compelling, and the mother is utterly detestable and the daughter someone we can sort of empathize with. After all, it's not so easy to turn one's back on our family, no matter how badly they've hurt you. My biggest concern was with the lack of forensic logic behind some of the events, and also the lack of Sophie's memory.
Without giving away the ending, it seems highly unlikely that a girl her age years old would have no memory whatsoever of a major life event that would forever change her life. This was a big red flag for me as a reader, but it wasn't enough of an issue that I couldn't enjoy the book or the twist ending.
Overall, I've added Denzil on my list of authors I'd definitely read again. Jul 01, Agnes BeaderBubbe rated it really liked it Shelves: a-kindle-unlimited.

This book is a thriller. It's about a woman, who cares for her something mother who has advanced, early-onset Alzheimer disease. Frankly, I can't say much more without hinting at spoilers. I'd recommend this book, but some will want to know prior to reading that the stress of living with and caring for a family member who has dementia is a central theme of this story, and it doesn't go easy. Mar 14, Renny Barcelos rated it it was ok Shelves: audible. Just meh, really. It is well written and got me engaged but for anyone who has been reading mysteries for a while this one will feel short and perhaps a bit far fetched.
Loved this book. Was looking for something suspenseful and snagged this and was delighted to find out not only was it a great thriller, but one of the main characters is a daughter dealing with a challenging mentally unstable mother. I have a background in Psychology so this was an awesome read. Mar 26, Sammy Jackson rated it really liked it. A fab read, couldn't put it down, took me less than 24 hours to read.
Aug 16, Lisa rated it it was amazing. I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review,thank you very much Sarah. This is an unsettling psychological thriller that unearths shocking secrets and explores broken relationships. This had me on the edge of my seat and twice I actually got chills reading it! Will be reading more from this author Oct 27, Erin Gillean rated it it was amazing. If you are looking for a book with lots of twist and turns this one is it!
Shelves: read-on-kindle. Her shadow knew all the answers. You know, that imaginary friend you makeup in your mind to mask over your loneliness? Or maybe not? From the clothes she wore, to the way she carried herself, there was something wrong with her and there was only one person who could give her the answers she was seeking—her mother.

A broken soul of the worse kind. She mistreated Sophie and berated her just because she existed. Hmmph, I would have left on the first thing smoking, but not Sophie.
She had something to prove. Speaking of proving something, Sophie was more determined than ever to find out what was missing in her life. A man perhaps? Mum took care of ending that relationship for her. A career perhaps? Mum also took care of that too. For as broken as Sophie felt, her mother was in a worse state of affairs than she. The caretaking of her mother became so overwhelming, she had to hire a nurse to oversee her care while she worked.
Her mother set out to destroy that as well. Whatever Mum set out to do, she systematically set out to destroy Sophie, and poor Sophie could never figure out why? If you ever wondered how to write a psychological thriller, Denzil certainly wrote the instructions for it in this novel, The Broken Ones. What an interesting story and one so intriguing, you will not stop turning the pages until you figure it out. I absolutely love when an author does that. What an exciting read! This one will do it for you! I know you She felt like a part of her was missing. Sophie stayed with Maureen all her life, putting her own life on hold for someone who has had little love for her.
Sarah used many examples to drive the point home how cruel Maureen was. This psychological thriller has me keenly aware of all the clues. After reading Silent Child I noticed a pattern, therefore I redirected my attention in other areas and began to search for hidden clues. Her constant need to address the unusual behaviors is thrilling. There are some chilling moments as well. There were unexpected twists and turns that had my mouth hanging open in shock. The execution of past events connecting the current events was fantastic.
Control was a powerful element in this story with characters directing the other characters behaviors by influencing their choices from the circumstances of events presented to them. I got through a third of this book but then packed it in. I wasn't enjoying it. It's all a bit too farfetched for my liking and I'd totally lost patience with Sophie altogether by then. Her mother is an unpleasant old bitch who has Alzheimer's although it seems she's always been a nasty piece of work. Sophie is a teacher so you'd credit her with some intelligence but she's in her 30s and still takes all this attitude from her.
She needs to sprout a backbone.
However, all we hear about is how she H I got through a third of this book but then packed it in. However, all we hear about is how she HAS to think about her mum all day long, which is cobblers as while she's working her mum has a careworker with her all day. Then she finds a button in her garden and it HAS to mean someone's been intruding there, which, if I were in her position, would be the last thing that sprung to my mind. She leaves work early one day and tells her pal she'll square it with their boss on her way home but then heads into the school to see I made a note at one point when Sophie tells us how exhausted she is that I'm exhausted too by how often she appears to be.
