The Invisible Ones – Stef Penney – (AUDIOBOOK) – 28.10.22

I was very quickly drawn in to this story and became gripped by the missing person mystery set in the gypsy traveller community. I loved the language and character development and was having a lovely time until about half way through the book, when I suddenly worked out the mystery twist completely. I know it’s nice to work out some bits of the mystery, as it makes the reader feel clever, but because I worked out everything so early, the rest of the book started to annoy me because it seemed so obvious to me and I couldn’t understand how the characters didn’t see it themselves. It is true that the reader gets several points of view, and the characters don’t all have all the pieces of the puzzle that the reader does, but still. On the whole though, I did like the book.
