Since We Fell

Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane

3/5 Stars

I went into this story really not knowing anything about it and I think that is the best way to go into this…well into any thriller really….

We follow our main protagonist, Rachel a former journalist who has a mental breakdown on air, she then struggles with anxiety and agoraphobic tendencies. This story starts out kind of slow and seems like more of a literary fiction/family drama sort of deal .  Then is slowing sneaks up the tension level bit by bit until it ends up completely bonkers by the end. This is the type of thriller where the action is not very believable as an actual real life scenario, but it was so entertaining and suspenseful I just didn’t care. I do think we spent too much time at the beginning on Rachel’s backstory and childhood, we could have spend less time there are more time later on in the action. This was a fun ride of a book that kept me up way past my bedtime…just be prepared to suspend your belief a bit and just go in expecting a fun time.
