She sees through the eyes of a killer…
Everyone thinks Vee is narcoleptic, but her secret condition is far
more terrifying. When Vee passes out she slides into other people’s
minds and can see the world through their eyes. It’s been happening for
long enough that she thinks she’s gotten a handle on it. But nothing
prepares her for sliding into someone holding a bloody knife, standing
over someone’s body.
Vee wishes she could share her secret, but who would believe her? She
can’t bring herself to tell her best friend, let alone the police. But
when someone else ends up dead, Vee knows she must find a way to unmask
the killer before they strike again.
Slide is a killer read written with a brilliant and super-slick style that will leave you breathless.
The book cover does a good job. It’s appealing to me. And I might add
that the cover is a UK one. I think it’s my first time to like a UK
book cover version. I’m pretty impressed- it’s nice in a way, the eye is
sort of hypnotizing you or something, haha!
Once you turn the page to chapter one, it started off – a little bit
confusing to me at first but as I carried on reading, the pieces of how
her ‘sliding’ works is coming together well enough. I liked the book.
I’m thinking about giving it 3 to 3.5 ratings. The story was not really
something I found strikingly creative. Somehow it is – where the mystery
solving comes in really is cool to me. That’s one reason why – I love
mystery solving. Characters that may have the capable of having a motive
to target innocent people/ do bad stuffs. I love being part of the
whole book seeing from another’s perspective. Who you kidding? That’s
Slyvia, is a good character. Using her ability to ‘slide’ into
another person not for her benefit to get revenge on people who hurt her
in the past but simply carry it and help others – she finally found a
purpose to make good use of her ability where justice is served.
And through Sylvia’s ability she discovered beyond what she sees with
her own eyes and come to grasp every thing that she never come across
before. It’s all new to her.
I personally like to learn to come up with good questions like Sylvia
when she was doing her independent investigation, she pretty much… well
I can say that she’s got lots of very good questions. I would like to
have that kind of mental power..hmm probably it has to do with her
‘sliding’, eh? I’m jealous. Oh yeah, not that she’s real. So, it’s fine.
Do check this book out or even better purchase it to any local
bookstores where it’s available!! I’m planning to read the sequel! Now, I
Happy reading to all bookworms! Cheers!
