Try Not to Breathe by Holly Seddon – verdicts coming in: 4

Review published on January 23, 2016.

Journalist Alex is an alcoholic who is writing the story she believes will save her. Amy is in a coma in a hospital ward and has been for years. Jacob, Amy’s boyfriend at the time of her accident, appears to be her only visitor yet his wife knows nothing about the former girlfriend even when telling her could save his marriage. Alex is determined to solve what happened to Amy in order to save herself.

The story bounces backwards and forwards over years culminating in the present day when the truth is finally revealed. It is told by the various parties involved both at the time and present day including Amy, lying in her hospital bed, listening to the people around her.

A good story, well told and one I would recommend particularly to anyone looking to be introduced to the genre of phsycological thrillers as it’s not too tense or chilling.
