Review: Strangers by C.L. Taylor
It is always hard to review a thriller without spoiling the plot, however, this is one book that I am glad to have persevered with. I really enjoy the idea of strangers who come together to help one another. The book is quite well written and the characters are engaging.
❀ Slow to start
This thriller starts off at a slow pace because it is really three stories in one. None of the stories are woven together until the conclusion, so there are many characters and events to keep track of. It seems daunting at first, but it does become easier as each subplot moves along.
❀ Relatable and Flawed Main Characters
The main characters are ones that are relatable and enjoyable to read about. Ursula seems to be dislikable at the beginning of the book, but as more of her backstory is revealed, she quickly becomes a favourite. All of the main characters are flawed, actually, and are transformed by the events of the story in their own ways.
❀ A Satisfying Read
Strangers by C.L. Taylor is perfect If you are in the mood for a thriller and have the patience to wait for it to rev up, it is a satisfying read. It comes together nicely towards the end of the story and the characters are engaging to read about. I am definitely interested in reading more of the author’s books.

I also like the idea of strangers coming together to help one another. Especially these days. Of course I don’t know if that’s a good thing in this book? I’d have to read it know. Haha

Ooh this sounds like a fun thriller and I’ve been really loving thrillers and mysteries lately, so this sounds like a good one. Good to know too that it starts a little slow, I’ll keep that in mind if I get it so I don’t give up on it too soon. Sometimes they take a while to get going. 🙂
Definitely! I am glad that I stuck with it!
This sounds good! I like when seemingly unconnected characters and storylines come together in unexpected ways.
Same! It surprised me in the end.
I don’t know if I could handle the slow pace, but I do like a good thriller every once in a while.
