Review: The Thirteenth Tale | Diane Setterfield

I finished reading The Thirteenth Tale last week, and what a page turner!!! I’d seen this book on the shelves at least 12 months before I bought it, and was initially attracted by the cover. I know what you’re thinking, but I always judge a book by it’s cover, and in this case, the cover is of book spines… I know, the perfect lure for a book lover, and ultimately, it met its mark.

So what’s it all about? Vida Winter is a successful author and she is dying. She decides to tell her life story, although she has done so on countless occasions, and each time she gives a different story! This time however, she is going to reveal the dark truth about her past. The story centres around twin girls, and reminded me a little of Flowers In The Attic, 2006 style.

I absolutely loved this book, despite reading several ‘dull’ reviews earlier in the year. I was definitely hooked and got through it in no time.

I am going to recommend it to my sister next.

My rating = *****

That’s my four bucks!
