    Description

    The Christmas season offers little cheer for Eileen Dunlop, an unassuming yet disturbed young woman, trapped between her role as her alcoholic father's carer and her day job as a secretary at the prison.

    When the charismatic Rebecca Saint John arrives as the new counsellor at the prison, Eileen is enchanted and unable to resist what appears to be a miraculously budding friendship.

    In a Hitchcockian twist, her affection for Rebecca ultimately pulls her into complicity in a crime that surpasses her wildest imaginings.

    Commentaires

    "Fully lives up to the hype. A taut psychological thriller, rippled with comedy as black as a raven's wing, Eileen is effortlessly stylish and compelling." ( The Times)
    "Excellent...a taut, well-written, and completely engrossing novel...culminating in a dynamite ending." ( Boston Globe)

    Wonderful, bleak and raw

    It's been a while since I read any Faulkner and this book is probably quite unlike his style but somehow his name kept lurching into my head as I listened.
    This is an incredible piece of character development. Eilleen, told in hindsight in the first person, is the story of a young woman with some pretty full on self esteem issues, a morbid fashion sense and an admin job in a juvenile detention centre in the mid '60's.
    It's also a cliffhanger with tension building subtly from the outset. Overall it's the best read I've had in a year :-) the reader wasn't to my liking but the story is so powerful it shone through.

    Story of a disappearance

    Eileen doesn't make it easy for us to feel sympthetic towards her. But, as we listen to her telling the story of her disappearance, we slowly get into her head, and while we may not agree with her decisions or behavior, we begin to understand what makes her tick and why she may have made certain choices.

    This is a rather dark audio book which increasingly drew me in, also thanks to the great narration.
