This is the type of book that I have a love/hate relationship with. I pick it up, read the first few chapters, and then become increasingly frustrated as I learn facts about the characters lives that occurred several years in the past. These facts do not make much sense until more is revealed as the story progresses, then all is clear at the end of the book. I sometimes want to throw the book against the wall, then the next minute, I realize I am reading faster and faster because I want to find out what happens next.
Actually, I believe these are some of the things that make a good novel, especially a suspense novel such as Indivisible. I would rather be pulled into the story than be wondering whether I should continue reading because nothing is happening. Kristen Heitzmann seems to know how to do this really well. There was enough suspense and intrigue in the plot to keep this reader involved. There were some surprises and a satisfying ending. The romance in the story was not overdone, although I think the main characters were a little too selfish, which made the reading tedious in just a few places.
There were several places in the book where I wasn't sure what was being said until I read further or went back a few pages. I guess I was reading too fast, but this doesn't usually happen to me when I read a novel, so I became frustrated at times. I felt that there could have been more clarification in some of these places which would have made the story flow better.
In spite of that, I liked this book. I would probably give it 4 out of 5 stars.
Here is my favorite quote from the book:
You can download the first two chapters of Indivisible from the Waterbrook Multnomah website here.
And, you can go here to hear an interview with the author, Kristen Heitzmann.
