HOW I GOT THIS BOOK: Review copy as a part of iRead book tours.
Identity theft is one of those rare books that combines a fun and light genre of chic-lit with something as a genre as serious as psychological thrillers.
The story is three people who find themselves at crossroad when their identities are mistaken. One character is a normal girl with normal inspiration while one character is a super star singer. The third character is another normal person who eventually ends up connecting the super star and the girl. Telling anything more about the story would simply lead to giveaway the plot. That is the very beauty of this book. Every single character, every single thread of narration is very vital to the entire plot that elaborating any further would obviously lead to plot being leaked.
The characterization was an absolute pleasure to read. All the three main characters, Blast, Ethan and Candi are well developed and I felt like I knew them in person. The story line was highly realistic. The writer Laura made perfect use of real life human emotions and aspirations. A case of identity theft is something that has become very common in this cyber generation. Turning that line of thinking into a realistic story was the master move by the writer. The high light of the book would be its ending. I wondered if the writer, Laura would actually give a closure for the characters, thankfully she gave just the perfect closure. The writing was simple and witty and aided a lot in narrating a highly interesting story line.
MY SAY: A good contemporary read! A must read!
