Even though it’s been a few months since I finished The Other Side, I haven’t gotten around to writing a review untill now.
I read this book between Christmas and New Years last year while visiting my parents who live faaaaaar away from me, and whom I only see about twice a year, maybe. I think they hardly noticed me visiting as most of the time I was swallowing every single word written by ms. Tyler’s sharp, observant and humorous pen. It reminded me so much of Marian Keyes who has a big fan in yours truly.
I must admit I found The Other Side a bit slow to begin with, and having to start over with a new character for the first four chapters and having to remember who did what, where, when and why was a bit confusing. But then it all became much clearer, and I kind of figured out what it would all boil down to. But I still felt thoroughly entertained and still the author managed to whip up a few surprises, and I practically devoured the last half of the book in record time.
I gave it 4 stars on goodreads.com to begin with, but as time went by and I found myself still thinking about it, I changed my mind and decided to award it 5 stars.
Thank god that there are more books by Terry Tyler!!
