a thriller set in New Hampshire in the 1960s, March 21, 2014
This review is from: A SHADOW ON MERRIMACK RIVER (Kindle Edition)
This thriller set in New Hampshire in the 1960s looks at one girl, her family, and the shadows of her life that are revealed. The author has done a wonderful job at portraying American life as seen through the eyes of a visitor to this country and the mystery behind the shadow on the Merrimack River is one that’s not easily solved by the reader.
The phrasing was a little hard to understand at times–it’s translated into English from Italian, and obviously by someone whose first language is not English. I would suggest that the author look for a translator who is American and is fluent in Italian for her next book, rather than an Italian who is fluent in English. I believe that would help with the ease of reading.
This issue did not reflect on my enjoyment of the book, however, and I look forward to the next book Ms. Alibrandi has for us.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quick Read- Interesting Journey, January 2, 2014
This book was a bit of a challenge at times {being translated from Italian}some phrases took me a bit to decipher. This did not take away from the main story. It is a tale of being treated as an outcast because of coming from another country, the way some shy away from people that are different. You become very connected to the character because of her treatment. The journey of finding a body within the water, adds the mystery. The building suspense and great character development leads to an unexpected ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mystery-Lover’s Mystery, December 9, 2013

This review is from: A SHADOW ON MERRIMACK RIVER (Kindle Edition)
It has a great storyline and all the ingredients of a page-turning thriller with the suspense building chapter by chapter and then a totally unexpected surprise ending. I liked how we knew what the main character was thinking and feeling throughout and I had empathy for her. I also admired her courage in seeking out the truth even at risk to herself although I was scared for what might happen to her.
The translation could be a little smoother but that did not take away from understanding and enjoying the plot and character development. I didn’t want to put it down until I finished it! And now I’d like to read more!
