increasingly preposterous plot and an awkwardly abrupt narrative, Don t Wake Up is comparable only to the misery of a six hour wait in AE surrounded by inebriated football hooligans For me, this novel sums up everything that is wrong with the over populated female friendly psychological thriller market far fetched scenarios, unlikely occurrences to satisfy the twist component and inane decision making by unconvincing characters devoid of both consistency and logic That Liz Lawler s narrative is unwieldy adds to the overriding feeling that Don t Wake Up is an amateur attempt at capitalising on the relatively unexplored territory of dark and unsettling medical mayhem When twenty eight year old Bristol based doctor, Alex Taylor, wakes up in theatre with only drapes covering her modesty, strapped to the operating table with her ankles in stirrups and two large cannulas inserted into her arms, her medical training kicks in Struggling to drag herself from a sluggish lethargy obviously induced by anaesthesia she finds a masked figure looming over her who she assumes is a doctor, although she fails to recognise the voice As the mystery voice threatens to staple her lips, she is told that her coil has been removed and that she is due to undergo a vulvectomy removal of the vulva Her only chance to halt the planned treatment comes when she is asked the question, what does no mean , the intimation of which is that saying no whilst dressed like a strumpet is equivalent to saying yes and leading a man on.When she reawakens for a second time however, Alex finds herself greeted by two of her closest colleagues her boss and senior consultant, Dr Caroline Cowan and her best friend and senior nursing sister, Fiona Woods, who are insistent that she was simply discovered in the hospital car park and suspected of being hit by a falling branch in the gale force wind They attribute her confusion and panic to concussion and are mystified by her assertions that she has been raped Despite their reassurances Alex insists on reporting her alleged abduction and rape to the police, for which no supporting evidence is found Riddled with inconsistencies, the first fifty pages were enough to show me that Lawler s developing plot owed to being selective with the information she presents than overtly up front about the circumstances Naturally no one believes Alex and whilst several close colleagues connect it to the unprocessed trauma of an incident a year back, knowledge of which is a closely guarded secret.Despite this harrowing event Alex is convinced by her arrogant boyfriend of a year, vet Patrick Ford, to hightail it to Barbados for a week s respite during which time she fails to mention the incident and is intimate with her partner, which is laughable Back on home soil and Alex s claims return with a vengeance and it becomes clear that both Patrick and her colleagues think she is losing the plot and suffering from post traumatic stress As she attempts to return to her demanding job, her colleagues reticence to engage with her and their obvious disbelief exacerbates her paranoia and as she struggles to cope she turns to both alcohol and diazepam to manage her fears Two weeks later the emergency admission of a pregnant nurse and the young woman s death bed words lead Alex to believe that she has been a victim of this same attacker Reporting the death as suspicious, the police start questioning Alex s sanity and after the blame for near fatal drug error is laid at her door and she is present at another suspicious death, Alex wonders whom, if anyone, she can trust, and how to establish her own innocence As she begins to suspect that the only answer is to proactively search out the psychopath intent on destroying her life the stakes become ever riskier.As a central protagonist I was convinced by Alex s insistence of the initial episode but it is is the rapidity of her swings in mood and distress that smack of unconvincing From sitting fully clothed in the shower addled by vodka and taking daily doses of diazepam in order to keep some semblance of calm, Lawler manages to follow up each tale of woe with Alex needing very little persuasion to go to a nightclub or evening out with colleagues, and her seamless transference of romantic interest does nothing to make her situation believable The characters were largely one dimensional, and the police and medical staff largely unprofessional, from SIO DI Greg Turner who goes weak at the knees over Dr Taylor and is unwilling to even countenance her potential involvement, to immature DC Laura Best and her attempts at a single handed character assassination of a talented medic, going out of her way to dig dirt and intent on claiming her scalp From biased cops to doctors under the influence, the moral of this story seems to be steer clear of anyone working for or operating under the guise of the emergency services The premise of Don t Wake Up on which the novel is marketed makes it sound like the plot has some element of substance, so despite the woefully inept opening chapters I persevered Comically bad, the plot and execution is dire but nothing can mask the fact that there is little sleight of hand in evidence and for readers to even imagine these incidents are the work of a increasingly delusional Alex takes a massive suspension of disbelief Seeing as these incidents did manage to confound the entire CID personnel I was clearly alone is seeing through this transparent plot and whilst clear medical know how is evident and well researched the police response personal wild goose chases, hours of navel gazing and muck racking is risible.When the elaborate motive is revealed it feels desperately unlikely that a person would go to such extraordinary lengths to destroy someone s career and sanity and stretches the bounds of credibility immensely, given that the risk reward ratio is stacked against a successful execution and that it relies on the perpetrator having superhuman powers and infinite resources to hand Apart from the early insight into how rape crisis victims are handled and what an utterly degrading experience such a process is, Don t Wake Up, has few redeeming aspects and my rating reflects the neatly tied up loose ends which by and large answered most of my remaining questions, although one or two still admittedly linger Although Alex is belatedly referred to a psychoanalyst to help her tackle her problems, this line of thread is largely untapped despite its obvious potential and felt like a missed opportunity Abysmal writing, inane plot and come year end, a reading lowlight flag 79 likesLike see review View all 31 comments Oct 06, 2017 Sarah Joint rated it really liked it review of another edition The opening to

was, I didn t want to stop reading I found this book to be nerve racking and unpredictable, and the last 25 percent is a complete roller coaster and actually stressed me out.Alex is a very accomplished person at the age of 28, a well respected doctor She s intelligent, driven, and successful She is the kind of person people look up to so when she suffers from an attack and no one believes her, it s harrowing Though she s been tied to an operating table and taunted, maybe violated, she s found dumped in the hospital parking lot relatively unharmed No one believes her crazy story because she doesn t have any injuries or any injection marks even though she insists they should be there.When a young woman who d been missing is brought to the hospital, she says something to Alex that makes her think she went through a similar experience Her colleagues and partner are worried she s losing it She has started drinking than what could be considered healthy maybe her story is true, but maybe she has simply snapped and needs psychological help More incidents start to happen without explanations, and she finds herself alienated from nearly everyone.More alone than ever, she s easier prey for the psycho after her or is she unknowingly her own worst enemy I received a copy of this book from Net Galley and Bonnier Zaffre, thank you My opinion is honest and unbiased. flag 72

intriguing layer to Don t Wake Up, I also give points for the fact that the characters mostly behaved reasonably given the circumstances If I had one bugbear it was one police officer character that was way too caricature but I won t say because everyone reads differentlyOverall Don t Wake Up is a great read, especially as a book to sit down with when you just need to read totally in the comfort

night, performing badly at work and becoming convinced that there are other victims like her Did something really happen to Alex, or is she going crazy This was one of those books that I won on Librarything and then totally enjoyed being introduced to a new author It was a little wild and crazy in places, but it kept me engrossed and reading, which I really appreciated I was amazed that absolutely no one seemed to believe Alex I understand that she had no real evidence to back up her story, but it seemed tragic to me how quickly her friends and family abandoned her to sadness and despair I wasn t sure I would like this book at first, because I m not a huge fan of the unreliable narrator to begin with, especially the self pitying alcoholic one, which seemed to fit Alex quite well But, I won t lie, she definitely grew on me This was even with the fact that something else had happened in Alex s life thirteen months ago something that her friends and co workers felt she had conflated with her pretend attack, and everyone, including Alex, referred to incessantly But, of course, it took forever for anyone to tell us what had actually happened, which drove me a little insane There s dragging something out for suspense and then there s annoying your reader to no end However, I really enjoyed the fact that we couldn t trust any of our characters even the policewoman investigating Alex s case, Laura Best, who was only out to further her career, not actually seek justice for Alex My favorite character was Laura s boss, Greg Turner He was a great detective, and I could totally root for him in his own series Not being able to trust anybody else, though, was kind of fun It kept me constantly guessing The book was surprisingly compelling truly a page turner There were some great twists and turns in this one I guessed a couple of pieces, but not all of them In the end, I stayed up late to finish this book, which is always a sign of a winner for me my sleep is a precious commodity Overall, this was probably a 3.5 star book in many ways, but I was impressed that this was the author s debut I also enjoyed how it kept me madly flipping the pages, trying to figure out what happened In the end, a 4 star rating I see Liz Lawler has another book out now, and I ll definitely be checking that one out at some point I received a copy of this novel from the

she answers this one simple question correctly What does no mean When she wakes up again in the ward of the hospital in which she works, after being found unconscious in the hospital car park, fully clothed and with a mere bump on her head, her version of events seems far fetched to the police, her colleagues and even her beloved boyfriend.Soon, there are questionable and suspicious incidents and we are left wondering if Alex is having a breakdown or is someone intent on destroying her And if so, why.From the outset, this captivating read had me feeling anxious with my heart in my mouth during this original and oh so frightening opening, playing on ones fears of waking up helpless and unable to move on a operating table.This read will keep you on your toes, having you wonder what is real and what isn t, having you speculate whether this will turn out well for the protagonist.With the many twists, turns and red herrings, everyone was a suspect at one stage I was delighted that the who in the whodunit took me by surprise as the author slapped me in the face with it With the suspense building as a result of a disturbing and seemingly unstoppable person pulling the strings, I drank up the intense, nail biting and unpredictable ending, it s conclusion hitting the sweet spot.The only niggle I had was that I found I had trouble believing Alex s loved ones and the police were so quick to dismiss her version of events, so quick to think the worst of her.Despite that, I am so pleased I got to read this clever, disturbing, tension filled medical psychological thriller, and I look forward to reading of Liz Lawler s work in future.Thank you to Netgalley, Bonnier Zaffre Twenty7 and the author for an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion flag 22 likesLike see review View 2

the reader that she isn t telling the truth It s a bit of a disappointment because that could have been an added component to keep a reader guessing and nervously turning the pages.Right around the half way mark I correct figured out the whodunnit part of the story, which only left the why for me to look forward to I still found the book to be a page turner even as the action unfolding became and outlandish Had the author played up the unreliable protagonist idea, this could have been so much nerve wracking By the time we finally get to the climactic reveal yep, I was right , the why and how was just friggin ridiculous It lost a star for me right then and there It just felt that the author had such a great what if but no real idea how to fully execute it with a strong story Instead, this ending came across as cobbled together, rushed, and in the end not satisfying This was a likable never good or great book for me throughout, but one that ultimately took a nose dive with its endingC provided by NetGalley flag 20 likesLike see review View 2 comments May 10, 2017 Sara M Abudahab rated it really liked it review of another edition Recommended to Sara by Holly B Shelves

at least a couple of years Killing Monica springs to mind and the next most recent, next most painful read.So much didn t make sense, through lack of conviction Characters were dull, flat, and hard to believe, the plot was hard to believe, it would possibly best be looked at as a parody social commentary on the Me Too and Time s Up movements, on the different ways people react to it, and the ways that women from one camp treat women from another But the writing here is too poor to make it worth reading for the social commentary alone.________________Okay at 50%, I am no longer going to quote typos and grammatical errors in statuses, because it s all too much.I m still going to point out where the character does or says or thinks stupid things, but again, maybe not every instance Ugh Can

refused to loosen its grip no matter how hard I tried to shake it off I defy anyone to not be affected by the nightmarish scenarios that Alex has to live through here The question is will Alex be believed and if not, how much danger will it take to change everyone s opinions Her lover, her colleagues and her friends all think she s having a breakdown so, slowly and surely, they slip by the wayside as Alex loses their support and possibly her own mind.Liz Lawler is going to be a name to look out for in the future I loved her easy going and engaging writing style and her ability to totally immerse her readers in the lives of her characters There were so many twists and turns here I was dizzy with indecision about who to trust and have to admit I had no idea who was behind this vicious campaign against Alex, or why, until it actually slapped me in the face It then kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat even to the very end.I loved experiencing this nightmare in book form and feeling unable to wake myself up from the hold it had over me Some of the graphic and realistically described hospital scenes had me crossing my legs in fear you will understand why when you read it and at times I wanted to put this book down but it became physically impossible to do so until I found out the truth.A thoroughly enjoyable and highly satisfying psychological thriller flag 11

empathized with her, wanting to reach into the book to help her In addition, there were some sections of the book told through other characters perspectives In some cases, these points of view added depth to the story, but others only served to add to the length of book without furthering the plot These transitions also weren t always clear right away, which disrupted some of the reading flow.Ultimately, I did like this story It was a unique take on the currently all too common psychological thriller While the overall story was satisfying, it was slower paced than I prefer and probably could have used additional editing to tighten everything up As this is Lawler s debut novel, I see promise for her future work and look forward to seeing what she does next Thanks to the

and the worldbuiling and atmosphere were exceptionally enthralling I found that the concise chapters made for easy reading But what I did love was how heart thumping each page was The first chapter itself reeled me in and I found wanting to know what was going to happen next For me being invested in a storyline is key to a good novel or plot.Our story starts with the abduction of the MC Alex Taylor who is a renowned doctor However, the circumstances of the crime she was involved in appear to be very strange Thus, we are taken on this rollercoaster of a story where no one believes what has happened to her Her reputation gets shred into pieces, she loses her friends and heads toward a mental breakdown Told from various POVs, as a reader you get a clearer picture of how things are playing out Plus you get a deeper understanding of who the characters are, their emotions and motives I felt that this was especially the case for it being a really emotionally charged book as it deals with sensitive issues I found every character to be fleshed out well I could see their virtues and vices With the plot, being set against the personal and professional lives of doctors, this added for a richer context and reading experience In addition to this, we also get a look at the lives of the investigating officers Their power moves, family life and so on I especially enjoyed reading the character of DC Laura Best It was engaging to see the unconventional detective who might even break rules and be so arrogant that it makes them want to close cases with the least amount of information on a perpetrator I personally felt these kinds of details lent the book with a certain authenticity which I found refreshing.Overall, I would say I really enjoyed the storyline The plot twists and devices were engaging and kept the story progression on the straight and arrow My only fault with the novel would be the ending as it left me a bit disappointed I would have preferred real closure However, I do get the understanding of the author for this and the reveal did come as a surprise though not as shocking Besides this, I would still recommend reading this novel It is one heck of a
