Henpicked’s book of the month for February 2019…

Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey on a background of a windowThank you for all your book reviews, interesting discussion about My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante – the writing was beautiful and cleverly done but not everyone’s cup of tea. Deborah Garlick says she’s sticking with the series on Sky for what happens next in the story.

If you haven’t shared your thoughts yet, please do join in the conversation at the bottom of the article on Disqus. What did you think of it? Would you recommend it to a friend? We know some of us haven’t finished yet but we’d still like to hear from you.

For this month we’ve chosen Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey. Thank you very much for your recommendation Carol Hurley.

Here are the reviews:

‘The novel is both a gripping detective yarn and a haunting depiction of mental illness, but also more poignant and blackly comic than you might expect from that description… perhaps Healey’s greatest achievement is the flawless voice she creates for Maud.’ (The Observer)

‘A compelling mystery that capture the experience of Maud, a highly memorable elderly woman losing her memory.’ (Sunday Express)

‘Riveting psychological thriller’ (Stylist’s Best Books of 2014)

We hope you enjoy it!
