The plot of Restless is very interesting, especially because of its historical backdrop. The idea of the main character (Sally) having a secret identity seemed very promising at first and I was expecting non-stop straightforward action, a hefty dose of mystery and a heart-stopping conclusion. However, the book felt more like a love story than a thriller. The events that took place leading to the first big revelation felt hurried and contrived. Even the style with which some parts of the story were written sometimes sounded juvenile. Sally's story provided much of the action and excitement but whatever momentum the reader gets from reading Sally's story is lost when the story shifts to Ruth. There was just too much detail about Ruth's life that seemed irrelevant to Sally's story, which is the main theme of the book. The conclusion was also a bit of a letdown. The book was not bad but it was not great either.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
