    One thought on “When We Go Missing”

    1. This was only ok. I found the alternating chapters and names a little confusing at times, and I think on the whole it was a little bit of a muddled read for me. The author has an interesting writing style. And I do think there is promise there for sure, I just didn't get on with this one!Won't be reviewing on the blog!

    2. I received a review copy of this book courtesy of the author.Reading the blurb was enough to sell me on this book. I have long been fascinated (and disturbed) by the ease with which husbands were once able to commit their (sane) wives to insane asylums, so that angle of the story definitely got my attention and made me eager to read this novel.The narrative is told from multiple points of view—Alex Gardinier (referred to as Alexandra Hallow in the psych hospital, which is set in the present [...]

    3. When We Go Missing is a super quick read, the story is told from multiple points of view and it is extremely enjoyable. As the plot moves at a whirlwind pace, we don’t get too much detail and Twardowski doesn’t linger on any one event for too long, but this works well to create a fun read. The plot isn’t too deep, psychologically, despite Alex being in a psychiatric ward.What I really loved about this book was the multiple points of view this story is narrated from – it never gets confus [...]

    4. *I received this book as a gift from the author*The moment Alex fell for Nathan Radcliffe, I knew that something wasn’t right.

    5. (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies)During my time studying psychology in my high school and college careers, there were a number of case studies that freaked me out. Be it because of ethical problems (The Milgram Experiment), animal cruelty (Harlow Monkey Experiment), or just flat out human terribleness (The Stanford Prison Experiment), many studies have told us a lot, but have ridiculous messed up connotations. But one that seems perfect for a horror story is the Rosenhan Experiment, wher [...]

    9. When We Go Missing is a psychological thriller that is a quick read. The book deals with Alex Gardinier, a woman whose husband may or may not be a murderer. If he is one, then she is desperately afraid that he will kill again.Though the description makes it sound like book is told entirely from Alex’s perspective, it actually follows several different women’s stories.
