This was a completely disturbing book... I didn't really read the precis so as I began the book, and as a mother of 4, i was vaguely sympathetic - sleep deprived, trying to juggle everything, feeling a bit resentful of having to time to myself, no privacy etc etc as I read however I could feel the chill, that something was off, and then the horror dawned. I read this book the entire way through - couldn't put it down. I have no idea is she was truly narcisstic/psychotic or in the grip of post natal psychosis but either way a truly disturbing character. Do not read this if you have children under 2 or are pregnant - you will scare yourself silly. I hate to sound supercilious but I think motherhood might be a prerequisite for reading this book to get into the character at the beginning, its that recognition and sympathy that makes the book so provoking and gripping and chilling. I hated the ending though - thought it was lame. ( )

As a mother of four children I found this book very disturbing.I can't believe a mother would do such a thing to their own child. Sure as a mother you can relate to the emotions and feelings that this mother went through. This is a chilling read and once you start reading you can't put the book down. This story did leave me feeling a little down ( )
