    Multiple narratives are nothing new but in the world of thriller reads have become the norm in recent years. This can lead to either scatterbrain storylines that confound and confuse or on rare occasions can make for gripping reads as you are presented with an unreliable narrator and t...

    4.5 stars rounded up! Like I said, the skin remembers, the fingertips remember. The gritty bite of the brick. The crack of the bone. The memory is like something physical, a scab I can worry, something I can make bleed again. Kate, aka Evie, is a seventeen year old girl and she...

    In CALL ME EVIE, we're instantly plunged into a realm of domestic suspense. You read page One, and you go, 'Oh God, I can't let go of this book. I need to know what's going on!' It pulls you in immediately. But you can progressively begin to acknowledge that you're on the brink of seei...

    Evie wakes from a drug-induced state and finds herself in a remote beach town in New Zealand with her uncle Jim. She is certain of only two things: her name is not Evie and Jim is not her uncle. How good is that hook! It reeled me in completely and I stress read this simply HAVING TO K...

    2.5/5 Hmm this was a weird read for me, not sure how I feel so I?ll just sort of think out loud with my review and try to process my thoughts and feelings about this with you guys! This is told in two timelines, before and after and nothing is very clear throughout, especially ...

    Call Me Evie is definitely one of my favourite psychological thrillers of the last couple of years ? I devoured it, the sense of place is stunning, the whole thing descriptively beautiful and the central story utterly compelling. It sounds like a tale you?ve read before and it doe...

    What I know about the human skull, I learned because of him. 4.5 stars. I DEFINITELY have some opinions on this, most of which are positive. I have an enormous amount of thoughts and feelings. The unreliable narrator has been queen in the mystery/thriller genre for quite a ...

    I have heard so much about Call Me Evie by JP Pomare and going into I had reservations that it would live up to the hype. I needn't have though as this book is everything you have heard and so much more. Still reeling over this story that I finished earlier today. Can't believe that th...

    JP Pomare debut is a chillingly oppressive psychological thriller that is incredibly well constructed and so well written. In a remote and isolated cabin in the coastal town of Maketu in New Zealand, 17 year old Aussie Kate Bennet is Evie. The novel opens with her hair being chopped of...

    I'll be honest and say what initially drew me to this book was the fact that my name is in the title. However, I wasn't disappointed. Call Me Evie was a quick psychological thriller which kept me hooked from start to finish. This haunting suspense story begins with seventeen-year-o...

    This book is destined to be hyped up because, among other things, it is actually quite good and fits snuggly into the current 'it' genre of 'domestic-thriller page-turner.' Fortunately I got to an early copy before my expectations were inflated. There are no 'the next Gone Girl' tag-li...
