Review – The Passenger by Lisa Lutz @lisalutz

The Passenger - Lisa Lutz

I read Passenger by Lisa Lutz some time ago and it’s one of those reviews that just got lost in the shuffle. So…let’s get started.

MY REVIEW

 

The mystery has begun and Lisa Lutz kept me guessing until the end.

 

Tanya’s husband falls down the stairs and dies. When she finds him, she runs. Why?

On the run, she hooks up with Blue…WHOA. She is a badass and could definitely teach Tanya some lessons. Wonder what her story is?

 

Trouble comes looking for them and bodies fall.

 

How would you go about creating a new identity….a new life?

 

Their life keeps getting more complicated and I wonder what will become of them. My curiosity and Lisa’s pacing and suspense keep me tearing through the pages, wanting answers, but…

 

Lisa Lutz is not new to me. I have checked her books out from the library and enjoyed them. Passenger is full of a lot of words and some took me on long convoluted paths. Were they there to just lengthen the story or were they essential to the character development and suspense? I don’t expect fiction to be ‘real’ but, to me, a suspense novel like Passenger doesn’t need events just to have them. Know what I mean? It just slows the pacing and lessens the suspense and I like the white knuckled, breath holding, must know what happens next feeling.

 

I don’t quite get what’s going on and don’t find out why she is running until the last 20%. I do love that I didn’t know the story and had to read to the end to find the answers I was seeking.

 

Blue kept popping in and out and I loved it. There are no heroes here. All in all, I enjoyed the story. 

 

I read an ARC, so I hope Lisa trims the fat and makes this the top notch book I feel it can be.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Passenger by Lisa Lutz.
