“I See You” is one of the creepiest thrillers I’ve read in a long time (and I like creepy books). The thrills begin right at the starting gate, and continue to the very last page.
In the newspaper one day, Zoe Walker finds a picture of a woman who looks like her; in fact, she thinks it may be her. From then on, she feels as though someone is watching her every move. When she tells her friends and family, no one seems to believe that she is in danger. Zoe is on her own, fighting for her life.
She begins to suspect everyone, including the man with whom she is living. She trusts only her friend, Melissa. She is the one to whom Zoe tells her problems. She is the one who listens to Zoe’s fears. We all have a friend like Melissa, that we can trust with our deepest, darkest secrets. Or do we?
We trust that no one is watching us as we are mindlessly going through our daily routines. Why would anyone care? We all are in the same rut that we know as life.
This book made me think twice about social media, of where I go and the fact that I’m home alone at the same time everyday. I asked myself, do I have too much information in my social media accounts. Is there enough for someone with less than honorable intentions to stalk me; find out all about my life and possibly take it? Can I even trust my friends and family?
If Clare Mackintosh intended to scare her audience, she succeeded. All I suggest is that you don’t read “I See You” alone at night.
