KtMac Reviews: I'd Know You Anywhere

Author: Laura Lippman

The Good: The novel is intriguing. It follows Eliza Benedict in modern day as she unravels her understanding of her past, including the traumatic kidnapping she endured, the strange "relationship" she had with her kidnapper, and her undeniable sense of survivor's guilt. 

The Bad: It is melancholy, but otherwise, seems to be in line with the behaviors and thought processes I would guess a survivor of a kidnapping would display. Especially given her desire to leave the past in the past. 

The Verdict: I recommend. It's not a light-hearted beach read, but it is definitely worth reading.
