    5? Intoxicating! Page Turner! Wow oh wow what an opening. The first few pages of Someone Like Me had me gasping for breath. I knew from that point on it was going to be a special read and I wasn't wrong! The book opens with Liz literally being strangled to death by her Ex Hus...

    It's incredibly difficult to write a review for a book where the publisher has offered so little information in the description. Honestly, I didn't care if it had a description at all, it's written by M.R. Carey and that's all I needed to know. Perhaps the reasoning behind the vagu...

    Waaa. Yeah, I'm whining a bit over what seemed like a misfire for MR Carey, an attempted taser blast that for me just limply hit the floor. Zero electricity. That said, I'm an old gal pushing 60 with reading tastes a little different than the average reader (if there is such a beast...

    My apologies to NetGalley, the publisher and author, but I will not be finishing this book. At 35% it has still not captured my attention and I have no feelings for the characters. Perhaps I will pick it up at another time and if so, I will provide feedback then. Thank you for the oppo...

    I didn?t even read the plot summary for this one, didn?t need to, it sold me just by being Carey?s latest. What can I say?the guy knows how to tell a story. Even if it takes him over 500 pages to do so. Normally I stay away from such behemoths, but this was definitely a worthy ...

    DNF I at page 274.. I can get into slow paced novels but this one just lost me:( ...

    Someone Like Me by M.R. Carey is a psychological thriller/horror/supernatural marvel. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Orbit Books, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synops...

    WOW! What a way to start a book! I will put my hand up and say this is my first book by Mr Carey, but I do have the Girl with all the gifts on my Kindle due to a recommendation from a friend. So when this came up I snapped it up straight away! I have not regretted a single word that I ...

    As always this review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek: https://thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress... My first foray into the work of Carey came last year thanks to The Boy on the Bridge which I thoroughly enjoyed. After finishing Someone Like Me all I can say is that ...

    This was a completely different read, not my usual kinds. The story was about Liz who was a single mom with an abusive violent ex who decided to teach her a lesson whom she killed and that was the opening scene which led the story.. Fran was an abused 16 year old trying to find her li...

    Gotta watch that Mike Carey. He's a cagey fella. Grabs your attention with some shocking, life threatening domestic ultra-violence, then lulls you into a false sense of security with passages of everyday activities only to blow your mind with one completely insane multiversal time-loop...

    If you've read any of M.R. Carey's previous books then I think you know what to expect - if you haven't read any - then prepare to have your mind blown! This is another difficult book to review without giving away any spoilers so I need to be careful of what I say here. Liz Kendal...

    I am a huge fan of MR Carey's novels, I've loved every one of them, but, in my opinion Someone Like Me is the best of them all. It tells a chilling, fascinating story but there are also, alongside the horror, moments of pure tenderness. Loved it. Review to follow shortly on For Winter ...

    Wow!! Someone Like Me was my first introduction to M.R. Carey?s work, and I was completely blown away. It starts simply enough, with one of our main characters, Liz, feeling the presence of someone else lurking beneath her skin. The other being emerges during a traumatic assault, and...

    Liz Kendall suffered mental and physical abuse from her ex-husband. A meek and mild individual, some people would say she was a walk over. But when she fought back at her ex, she let her dark side come to the surface. 10 years after being kidnapped by Bruno Picota, Fran was still suff...

    *3.5 Stars What I love about all of M.R. Carey?s books is the tease. The covers, while all distinct, have a certain continuity to them. Even without the author?s name, you know that it is an M.R. Carey novel. There is a mystery to his covers, no hint to the setting, nothing to s...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/11/18/... M.R. Carey, whose name has been at the forefront of the horror fiction scene in recent years, is proving he?s still in the zone with his newest novel Someone Like Me, a spooky psychological thriller with su...

    This is a story that I recommend really highly: My only experience previously with this author was The Girl With All The Gifts: well this, in my opinion, blew that one out of the water. I loved both stories but this just had the wow factor for me. I am not going to go into the wh...

    ?Sometimes you don't know what can hurt you until it's too late...? Liz Kendall has an alter ego. In response to a violent relationship, her more assertive and protective self has been rearing its head more and more. The thing is, it's absolutely involuntary. It's as if Liz is ...

    I am a huge Stephen King fan and as much as I loath to compare authors, this book is VERY Stephen King-ish, and I loved it! If she could bring the two halves of herself together, and hold them there, wouldn?t they just heal up again into one normal person? This isn't my usual ...

    Weighing in at 500 pages, Someone Like Me presents the reader a considerable challenge. To decide if you?d like it, having enjoyed M. R. Carey?s previous The Girl with All the Gifts or Fellside is not a surefire indication. There is a blurb on the back cover from Lauren Beukes that...

    Waaa. Yeah, I'm whining a bit over what seemed like a misfire for MR Carey, an attempted taser blast that for me just limply hit the floor. Zero electricity. That said, I'm an old gal pushing 60 with reading tastes a little different than the average reader (if there is such a beast...

    Ahoy there me mateys! I received this fantasy thriller eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . . I found out about the book from me matey, Paul @ paul'spicksand immediately had to read it. I love this author's work. Now I didn...

    My apologies to NetGalley, the publisher and author, but I will not be finishing this book. At 35% it has still not captured my attention and I have no feelings for the characters. Perhaps I will pick it up at another time and if so, I will provide feedback then. Thank you for the oppo...

    oooowwww man, can not wait to wrap my fingers around this book and dive in. I have become addicted to m.r Carey's books and may end up just following around. I wish the story was available NOW!!! ...

    I didn?t even read the plot summary for this one, didn?t need to, it sold me just by being Carey?s latest. What can I say?the guy knows how to tell a story. Even if it takes him over 500 pages to do so. Normally I stay away from such behemoths, but this was definitely a worthy ...

    DNF I at page 274.. I can get into slow paced novels but this one just lost me:( ...

    Someone Like Me by M.R. Carey is a psychological thriller/horror/supernatural marvel. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Orbit Books, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synops...

    WOW! What a way to start a book! I will put my hand up and say this is my first book by Mr Carey, but I do have the Girl with all the gifts on my Kindle due to a recommendation from a friend. So when this came up I snapped it up straight away! I have not regretted a single word that I ...

    As always this review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek: https://thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress... My first foray into the work of Carey came last year thanks to The Boy on the Bridge which I thoroughly enjoyed. After finishing Someone Like Me all I can say is that ...

    This was a completely different read, not my usual kinds. The story was about Liz who was a single mom with an abusive violent ex who decided to teach her a lesson whom she killed and that was the opening scene which led the story.. Fran was an abused 16 year old trying to find her li...

    Gotta watch that Mike Carey. He's a cagey fella. Grabs your attention with some shocking, life threatening domestic ultra-violence, then lulls you into a false sense of security with passages of everyday activities only to blow your mind with one completely insane multiversal time-loop...

    If you've read any of M.R. Carey's previous books then I think you know what to expect - if you haven't read any - then prepare to have your mind blown! This is another difficult book to review without giving away any spoilers so I need to be careful of what I say here. Liz Kendal...

    I am a huge fan of MR Carey's novels, I've loved every one of them, but, in my opinion Someone Like Me is the best of them all. It tells a chilling, fascinating story but there are also, alongside the horror, moments of pure tenderness. Loved it. Review to follow shortly on For Winter ...

    I didn?t even read the plot summary for this one, didn?t need to, it sold me just by being Carey?s latest. What can I say?the guy knows how to tell a story. Even if it takes him over 500 pages to do so. Normally I stay away from such behemoths, but this was definitely a worthy ...

    5? Intoxicating! Page Turner! Wow oh wow what an opening. The first few pages of Someone Like Me had me gasping for breath. I knew from that point on it was going to be a special read and I wasn't wrong! The book opens with Liz literally being strangled to death by her Ex Hus...

    Liz and Fran are formidable characters. Both as equally strong, but in different ways. This book blew my socks off, I kid you not. As the story builds so does the plot, the reader is slowly getting into this unique and mesmerising story until you can?t believe what you read w...

    It's incredibly difficult to write a review for a book where the publisher has offered so little information in the description. Honestly, I didn't care if it had a description at all, it's written by M.R. Carey and that's all I needed to know. Perhaps the reasoning behind the vagu...

    This was a completely different read, not my usual kinds. The story was about Liz who was a single mom with an abusive violent ex who decided to teach her a lesson whom she killed and that was the opening scene which led the story.. Fran was an abused 16 year old trying to find her li...

    Gotta watch that Mike Carey. He's a cagey fella. Grabs your attention with some shocking, life threatening domestic ultra-violence, then lulls you into a false sense of security with passages of everyday activities only to blow your mind with one completely insane multiversal time-loop...

    If you've read any of M.R. Carey's previous books then I think you know what to expect - if you haven't read any - then prepare to have your mind blown! This is another difficult book to review without giving away any spoilers so I need to be careful of what I say here. Liz Kendal...

    Waaa. Yeah, I'm whining a bit over what seemed like a misfire for MR Carey, an attempted taser blast that for me just limply hit the floor. Zero electricity. That said, I'm an old gal pushing 60 with reading tastes a little different than the average reader (if there is such a beast...

    Ahoy there me mateys! I received this fantasy thriller eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . . I found out about the book from me matey, Paul @ paul'spicksand immediately had to read it. I love this author's work. Now I didn...

    My apologies to NetGalley, the publisher and author, but I will not be finishing this book. At 35% it has still not captured my attention and I have no feelings for the characters. Perhaps I will pick it up at another time and if so, I will provide feedback then. Thank you for the oppo...

    oooowwww man, can not wait to wrap my fingers around this book and dive in. I have become addicted to m.r Carey's books and may end up just following around. I wish the story was available NOW!!! ...

    I didn?t even read the plot summary for this one, didn?t need to, it sold me just by being Carey?s latest. What can I say?the guy knows how to tell a story. Even if it takes him over 500 pages to do so. Normally I stay away from such behemoths, but this was definitely a worthy ...

    Someone Like Me by M.R. Carey is a psychological thriller/horror/supernatural marvel. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Orbit Books, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synops...

    WOW! What a way to start a book! I will put my hand up and say this is my first book by Mr Carey, but I do have the Girl with all the gifts on my Kindle due to a recommendation from a friend. So when this came up I snapped it up straight away! I have not regretted a single word that I ...

    As always this review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek: https://thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress... My first foray into the work of Carey came last year thanks to The Boy on the Bridge which I thoroughly enjoyed. After finishing Someone Like Me all I can say is that ...

    This was a completely different read, not my usual kinds. The story was about Liz who was a single mom with an abusive violent ex who decided to teach her a lesson whom she killed and that was the opening scene which led the story.. Fran was an abused 16 year old trying to find her li...

    Gotta watch that Mike Carey. He's a cagey fella. Grabs your attention with some shocking, life threatening domestic ultra-violence, then lulls you into a false sense of security with passages of everyday activities only to blow your mind with one completely insane multiversal time-loop...

    If you've read any of M.R. Carey's previous books then I think you know what to expect - if you haven't read any - then prepare to have your mind blown! This is another difficult book to review without giving away any spoilers so I need to be careful of what I say here. Liz Kendal...

    I am a huge fan of MR Carey's novels, I've loved every one of them, but, in my opinion Someone Like Me is the best of them all. It tells a chilling, fascinating story but there are also, alongside the horror, moments of pure tenderness. Loved it. Review to follow shortly on For Winter ...

    Wow!! Someone Like Me was my first introduction to M.R. Carey?s work, and I was completely blown away. It starts simply enough, with one of our main characters, Liz, feeling the presence of someone else lurking beneath her skin. The other being emerges during a traumatic assault, and...

    Liz Kendall suffered mental and physical abuse from her ex-husband. A meek and mild individual, some people would say she was a walk over. But when she fought back at her ex, she let her dark side come to the surface. 10 years after being kidnapped by Bruno Picota, Fran was still suff...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/11/18/... M.R. Carey, whose name has been at the forefront of the horror fiction scene in recent years, is proving he?s still in the zone with his newest novel Someone Like Me, a spooky psychological thriller with su...

    This is a story that I recommend really highly: My only experience previously with this author was The Girl With All The Gifts: well this, in my opinion, blew that one out of the water. I loved both stories but this just had the wow factor for me. I am not going to go into the wh...

    ?Sometimes you don't know what can hurt you until it's too late...? Liz Kendall has an alter ego. In response to a violent relationship, her more assertive and protective self has been rearing its head more and more. The thing is, it's absolutely involuntary. It's as if Liz is ...

    I am a huge Stephen King fan and as much as I loath to compare authors, this book is VERY Stephen King-ish, and I loved it! If she could bring the two halves of herself together, and hold them there, wouldn?t they just heal up again into one normal person? This isn't my usual ...

    Weighing in at 500 pages, Someone Like Me presents the reader a considerable challenge. To decide if you?d like it, having enjoyed M. R. Carey?s previous The Girl with All the Gifts or Fellside is not a surefire indication. There is a blurb on the back cover from Lauren Beukes that...

    Waaa. Yeah, I'm whining a bit over what seemed like a misfire for MR Carey, an attempted taser blast that for me just limply hit the floor. Zero electricity. That said, I'm an old gal pushing 60 with reading tastes a little different than the average reader (if there is such a beast...

    Ahoy there me mateys! I received this fantasy thriller eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . . I found out about the book from me matey, Paul @ paul'spicksand immediately had to read it. I love this author's work. Now I didn...

    My apologies to NetGalley, the publisher and author, but I will not be finishing this book. At 35% it has still not captured my attention and I have no feelings for the characters. Perhaps I will pick it up at another time and if so, I will provide feedback then. Thank you for the oppo...

    oooowwww man, can not wait to wrap my fingers around this book and dive in. I have become addicted to m.r Carey's books and may end up just following around. I wish the story was available NOW!!! ...

    I didn?t even read the plot summary for this one, didn?t need to, it sold me just by being Carey?s latest. What can I say?the guy knows how to tell a story. Even if it takes him over 500 pages to do so. Normally I stay away from such behemoths, but this was definitely a worthy ...

    DNF I at page 274.. I can get into slow paced novels but this one just lost me:( ...

    Someone Like Me by M.R. Carey is a psychological thriller/horror/supernatural marvel. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Orbit Books, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synops...

    WOW! What a way to start a book! I will put my hand up and say this is my first book by Mr Carey, but I do have the Girl with all the gifts on my Kindle due to a recommendation from a friend. So when this came up I snapped it up straight away! I have not regretted a single word that I ...

    As always this review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek: https://thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress... My first foray into the work of Carey came last year thanks to The Boy on the Bridge which I thoroughly enjoyed. After finishing Someone Like Me all I can say is that ...

    This was a completely different read, not my usual kinds. The story was about Liz who was a single mom with an abusive violent ex who decided to teach her a lesson whom she killed and that was the opening scene which led the story.. Fran was an abused 16 year old trying to find her li...

    Gotta watch that Mike Carey. He's a cagey fella. Grabs your attention with some shocking, life threatening domestic ultra-violence, then lulls you into a false sense of security with passages of everyday activities only to blow your mind with one completely insane multiversal time-loop...

    If you've read any of M.R. Carey's previous books then I think you know what to expect - if you haven't read any - then prepare to have your mind blown! This is another difficult book to review without giving away any spoilers so I need to be careful of what I say here. Liz Kendal...

    I am a huge fan of MR Carey's novels, I've loved every one of them, but, in my opinion Someone Like Me is the best of them all. It tells a chilling, fascinating story but there are also, alongside the horror, moments of pure tenderness. Loved it. Review to follow shortly on For Winter ...

    Wow!! Someone Like Me was my first introduction to M.R. Carey?s work, and I was completely blown away. It starts simply enough, with one of our main characters, Liz, feeling the presence of someone else lurking beneath her skin. The other being emerges during a traumatic assault, and...

    Liz Kendall suffered mental and physical abuse from her ex-husband. A meek and mild individual, some people would say she was a walk over. But when she fought back at her ex, she let her dark side come to the surface. 10 years after being kidnapped by Bruno Picota, Fran was still suff...

    *3.5 Stars What I love about all of M.R. Carey?s books is the tease. The covers, while all distinct, have a certain continuity to them. Even without the author?s name, you know that it is an M.R. Carey novel. There is a mystery to his covers, no hint to the setting, nothing to s...
