The Child Reviews

  • Sue

    The Child by Fiona Barton is a brand new novel of twisting psychological suspense from the author of the New York Times bestseller The Widow. While I enjoyed he Widow, I liked this one much better, as I found the characters more fully developed in The Child. Many twists and turns with a surprise ending.

    I absolutely adored Fiona Barton’s debut novel, The Widow, so I was all-too eager to get my little hands on this one when I heard about The Child. Of course, that’s the problem with not reading blindly, isn't it--with already being familiar with an author’s previous works: you go in with expectations, undoubtedly heightening your expectations on the author, and it doesn’t always pan out. When that happens, those reads seem to fall harder than if you’d never met their predecessors in the first pl ...more

    I liked this a lot better than The Widow, but I did guess the ending quite early on, so an aspect of suspense was missing a little. Still, an engaging story and I would certainly read this author in the future!

    I had read The Widow by Fiona Barton and was really looking forward to reading her new book The Child and I was not disappointed. I really, enjoyed this book, it had quite a few twists and turns. I thought that the story was well thought out and kept me engrossed. It was a real page turner. I would like to thank NetGalley for my e-copy in exchange for an honest review.

    I was in the minority last year when Fiona Barton’s The Widow was published; I didn’t dislike it, but I felt it was another case of the media hyping up a book to unrealistic expectations and touting a killer twist that wasn’t there. None of this is the author’s fault; it was simply a mismatching of book to reader. When I saw The Child being promoted in a similar form this year, I decided to shut my eyes, close my ears, and go in blind. I avoided all reviews, spoilers, media packets, et
