Along for the ride with The Passenger

— feeling amazing
The Passenger - Lisa Lutz

Fun and suspenseful, Lisa Lutz's story was an intense experience.  I loved it.  I loved the characters.  I even loved the deeply flawed plot.  There are many things in this story that don't make sense and aren't tied up at the end (despite the impression that they are), and I could go into great detail here, but they didn't spoil the experience for me.  The suspense in the novel depends on the main character and narrator, whose name keeps changing, keeping things from us as she tells us her story.  She drew me into her story, but once she had gained my trust and my empathy, I wondered why she kept hiding things from me.  In the end, though, I came out cheering for her, happy to have lived in her story a while.  It was a great ride.  

I got a free copy of this from Net Galley.
