Not one of her best

All Around the Town is predictable and lame. The mystery is easily solved in the first fifty pages, the identity of the kidnapper is figured out after one or two clues. This makes the rest of the book boring and, to be honest, very irritating. The mystery can be solve...
All Around the Town is predictable and lame. The mystery is easily solved in the first fifty pages, the identity of the kidnapper is figured out after one or two clues. This makes the rest of the book boring and, to be honest, very irritating. The mystery can be solved by a reasonably smart chimpanzee and therefore this book has no suspense.

    I LIKE IT

    Around The Town is a mystery book. The author purpose is that teach the psychological problems that a person can have when they were raped as a kid. The story take place near New York it was at Laurie house, she was a friendly girl and consequence of that she was kidnapped when she as just a little girl. She was sexual abused and psychological by a couple. During two years they have not another alternative to let her go because someone recognize her by a TV show. She was threaded if she say something about them. After all of this she returned to her house she never anted to talk about what had happen because she was afraid to remember because she as thread and if she say something they will kill her. While the days had happen she tried to had a normal life with her family help. After her parents pass way in a car accident her psychological problems started to rise and stared to have different personalities. Her sister decided to sale her house and move to another city because she wanted that her sister forget the past. She was accused to kill her English professor because one of her personalities feel attractive with him but later on discovered that the wife was the one who kill him. I liked this book because the author created suspense in the whole story. I agree with the message because any person who has in the same situation have the have problems even worst . The part I liked the most was when they were investigating who was kill the professor. The author did a good job because she always keep my attention. I recommend to all the people who like to read mystery books

    It's hard to review this book Mary Higgins Clark is one of my fa

    It's hard to review this book Mary Higgins Clark is one of my favorite writers but,don't continue reading to read the reviews if you are thinking of purchasing
    this book. Ever been watching a movie and someone comes in and tells you the end of it? Well if you continue reading the reviews 
    M_SANCHEZ not only tells the first & middle of the book they also tell you who murdered the professor. This totally ruined the book for me because now I will not buy it,
    Come on guys give your opinion but, don't give the suspense of the story line and ruin it for others.
