Original, haunting and utterly gripping, Kiss Me First is The Talented Mr Ripley for the online age and the literary thriller that everyone will be talking about. Leila has never met Tess, but she now knows more about Tess than anyone in the world. She’s read all of her emails, researched her past and asked Tess for every detail about her friends and family. Tess has never met Leila. But if she wants to slip away from the world unnoticed, she needs to trust Leila with her life. At first, Leila finds it easy to assume Tess’s identity, and no one has any reason to distrust her. But as Leila is soon to discover, there is much more to a person than the facts and there are things about life you can learn only by living it… For fans of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, Before I Go To Sleep by S. J. Watson and Notes on a Scandal by Zoe Heller, Lottie Moggach’s Kiss Me First is an electrifying and unputdownable debut from a phenomenally gifted storyteller.
Kiss me First; Original and beautiful dark
This really is an amazing listen. The book is unarguable very different and well written. It takes you to some dark places of the human heart. The reader is also exceptional. The book is almost entirely a two hander between two characters that the reader portrays beautifully, to the point you will think its two different actresses. i can not recommend this book enough especially if you like me are a little bored with the predictable formulaic novels that seem so ubiquitous at the moment.
Kiss me first
Boring. The narrator sounds like a 10 year old reading very carefully so as not to get her words wrong. The storyline would have been good had it not been for the abundance of useless information given such as the size of carrots being chopped - yawn
The basis of the story is ok - could have far more depth and twists & turns.
For such a seemingly intelligent girl - Leila - she came across like a halfwit.
I understand she had led a somewhat sheltered life, but was more than competent on the Internet - so why not be more savvy with the world of today?
My main grip was the awful voice of the narrator - really ruined the book for me.
