“The writing in Madame Tussaud is so good that I felt like I was in Paris, experiencing the events firsthand for myself,” writes SuperRIFer Mary Jo. “The second half of the book flew by, and each night I couldn’t wait to jump into bed and open the book to read a few more chapters before sleep. I think it’s the mark of a true writer when, after reading one of her books, a reader looks up more by the same author. That is exactly what I did. I am a new Moran fan and recommend this book to everyone!”
Sister was an instant bestseller in the U.K. and quickly climbed the bestseller lists in the U.S. as well. The New York Times compared Rosamund Lupton to Kate Atkinson, Patricia Highsmith, and Ruth Rendell, and called Sister “both tear-jerking and spine-tingling.” But don’t just take the New York Times’ word for it! We all know that a recommendation from a friend is the best way to find a great new read. Your fellow RIFers are smart, voracious readers like you, and they have great things to say about Sister. Enjoy excerpts of just a few of the amazing reviews RIFers shared with us. Read It First and Pass It On!
“The Informationist is a thriller, mystery, and Africa travel guide (to the places you do not want to visit) all rolled into one,” says Marisa of the book blog MarisaReadsItAndWritesIt. “It is amazing, and I could not stop reading it.
