What You Wish For - Mark Edwards
Reading Challenge Category: £1 from Amazon
Marie Walker has vanished from the face of the earth... Her besotted boyfriend, newspaper photographer Richard Thompson, vows to find her, convinced that Marie's unusual beliefs hold the key. But a shocking discovery makes him question if he ever really knew his girlfriend. And when people around him start to die, Richard is plunged into terrible danger. Drawn into the world of a sinister cult and the darkest corners of the Internet, Richard finds himself increasingly out of his depth as he discovers just how far people will go to protect what they believe in...
I’m really annoyed by the official blurb for this book as nowhere does it say that it is about aliens! Or more to the point fanatics believing in aliens! I know it says that the missing girl had strange beliefs but if I had realised that the book was going to be spouting on about UFO sightings, abductions and little ‘grey’ men I would not have picked this book to read in a million years! Also (SPOILER AHEAD), only one person dies after his girlfriend goes missing and that is a bad guy, so that is a slight stretch of the word ‘people’ in the official blurb as well. I kept thinking he’s only known this girl for four months just get on with your life and move on! I think the whole story may have been a bit more believable if he had been with her for a couple of years with how far he went to try and find her. It is fair to say that I did not enjoy this book at all and felt very misled by the blurb before reading.
