The Woman in the Reflection by Avi Friede

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A very interesting and enjoyable read...

Salted with mystery and peppered with intrigue, The Woman in the Reflection by Avi Friede is a superbly written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn characters and settings. The threads of storytelling are expertly woven in this rather peculiar romance that had me turning the pages from beginning to end.

I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the story in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much.

In many ways The Woman in the Reflection, a first novel written by Avi Friede, is a classic, albeit unusual romance. The author pays as much attention to his sentences as he does to his plots, shifting or consolidating meaning with the use of a single word. His writing is impeccably honed, full of juxtapositions and qualifications that help to create an almost prurient atmosphere.

Different from the writing style that I’d normally be used to, nevertheless, made this a very interesting and enjoyable read. I’ll be looking forward to reading more from this author in the future. Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
