    P gadas Digitais O que ela deixou n o , quanto a mim, uma leitura viciante sim , uma leitura que ronda o factual que tem tudo a ver com o tipo de comunica o que flui hoje em dia Nos tempos que correm, a internet um gigantesco F rum, onde se conta, comenta e partilha fala se do que se faz, do que se fez e do que se h de ou n o vir a fazer S o dores que se libertam, alegrias que se celebram, opini es que se trocam Aprendemos Mudamos Melhoramos Pioramos Evolu mos Involu mos Estamos Todos L e somos [...]

    I gave up on this one at 40%, just couldn t go on any 25 year old Alice Salmon s body was found floating in a river and her story is told mostly by University Professor Jeremy Cooke who tries to rebuild an image of her life by collecting her digital footprint At the start of the story we don t know the connection between Jeremy and Alice, although as the book goes on it does become apparent.The whole story is told by way of emails, blog posts, texts etcetera from many different viewpoints and a [...]

    4.5 StarsThank you, NetGalley and Simon Schuster for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review.Review also on Fiction JungleI just find it incredibly pleasing when an author can so easily pull you in and yet deliberately not show you an absolute picture of a story In a intricate way we discover what happened to ordinary Alice, who she surrounded herself with, how we are led to believe, it was mysterious death.You shouldn t hesitate on picking this one up because of its format Told fro [...]

    This novel takes as its starting point the death of a young woman, called Alice Salmon It demonstrates the way people communicate now via the internet feeling utterly free to comment about the most personal events In fact, the book virtually begins with tweets, speculating on the fact that police are down by the river and, gradually, we learn that the body found is that of Alice Alice was a student at Southampton University and had recently began working in the media, as a journalist in local ne [...]

    An absolutely brilliantly constructed story, compelling and actually really quite scary when you can see, all in one go, how much of our lives are just out there in the ether for people to see The little things and the big, the people who know you and who do not but will speak as if they do, even the smallest of details that you would not think twice about When Alice Salmon dies, Jeremy Cook starts putting together her life and death through a series of interviews, online information and persona [...]

    Some books are easy to review and the words come naturally unfortunately not this one I feel like I need a thesaurus just to start the opening sentence Firstly the primary narrator Cooke Cock made my skin crawl the most unpleasant, predatory slimy man with a pompous attitude didn t help matters much All the characters were pretty unlikeable in their own unique way, and whilst in other books I have actually enjoyed reading about characters I despised this one is not one of them A rather long and [...]

    Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for an opportunity to read an advance copy of What She Left Closer to 2 1 2 stars I was attracted to the concept of this book, but I didn t feel particularly engaged as I read it Alice Salmon a 25 year old journalist drowns in a river in Southampton on a night of heavy drinking What She Left is meant to be a reconstruction of Alice s life and death as seen through the writings of many people in Alice s life including tweets, emails, diaries, transcripts o [...]

    Wer war Alice ist mir bereits vor dem Erscheinungstag ins Auge gesprungen und somit stand f r mich sehr schnell fest, dass ich dem Buch unbedingt eine Chance geben wollte Da die Kurzbeschreibung einfach gro artig klang, habe ich hier eine spannende und ereignisreiche Geschichte erwartet und muss sagen, dass ich dies zum Gro teil bekommen habe wenn auch etwas anders, als zuvor erwartet.Die Geschichte ist n mlich kein klassischer Roman, sondern eine Zusammensetzung aus Briefen, Emails und Co An si [...]

  12. Jeann (Happy Indulgence)

    This review appears on Happy Indulgence Check it out for reviews What an absolutely frustrating book with deplorable characters My emotions ran high while reading What She Left, a thriller where a girl has died drowned in a river What results is a media storm, social media commentary and the vested interest of Professor Jeremy Cooke who collects all mentions of Alice s life and death, which frankly, wasn t that interesting.I do enjoy a story told using creative mediums, and this one features sn [...]

  13. Rosie

    This novel is written quite differently telling the story of Alice Salmon s life and death through diary entries, blogs, twitter posts, emails, letters, text messages and police interviews One of the main characters in the book, Professor Cooke, is putting together all these pieces of information to publish an account of Alice s life He comes across as being obsessed with Alice and is a little creepy and quite clearly crossing the line between appropriate teacher student relationships The first [...]

    This was a strange read Interesting But strange nonetheless The entire book is told through news articles, tweets, texts, voicemails, and letters There is absolutely no narrator due to us only getting this story through ad hoc modes of media The, I guess you call him, MC Old Cookie is an anthropology professor who makes it his goal to recreate Alice s life before her death, and unearth previously unknown facts and secrets about her and those close to her this is not a spoiler, it is the entire p [...]

    I almost put this book down several times and struggled with it on MANY levels So I ll be blunt 1 Quite frankly Alice s life wasn t all that interesting 2 Given the first point, Professor Cooke s interest in Alice s life is incredibly creepy His interest becomes obsessive and it s almost difficult to know how much of his narrative to believe given the way he justifies his interest As for their relationship , I would have preferred suppositions about Alice s parentage to be true 3 The book jumps [...]

    When I give a low rating to a book that some of my GR friends loved I fear appearing an awkward nit picking churl nits of course being something you d expect churls to have a lot of or an old pedant, especially when the nits involve health care or sailing But it s even discomforting when I want to promote a book to field marshal status that some of my discerning friends gave but a star or two most But that s my response to What She Left Some Kindle books have this great feature where you get bo [...]

    I think the premise of What She Left is good and I was excited by the idea of the epistolary format, yet somehow the story didn t quite live up to it s potential for me There seemed to be focus on Professor Cooke, Alice s former tutor, than on Alice and her life I also struggled with the scattered timeline and fairly slow pace

    I so wanted to like this, and be sucked in the way other reviewers were, unfortunately, I was rather disappointed I usually like multiple POVs, and I don t even mind jumping around in time, as long it s made clear, but I just felt that was taken a step too far in WHAT SHE LEFT I read a lot of crime fiction, and can generally follow the flow of a story quite well, but I felt rather confused with this book at multiple points, particularly the ending.The premise is quite clever, and I give Richmond [...]

    What She Left is a very original crime novel Recommended to fans ofGillian Flynn s Gone Girl andJane Shemilt s Daughter, but still unique enough to be almost in a field of it s own.The book is made up entirely of letters, diary entries, essays, police interview transcripts, social media exchanges, emails, newspaper articles, blog posts, etc It isn t your typical dialogue and narration Because of this, you feel like you re a part of the investigation and being given clues piece by piece, but out [...]

  27. Thomas

    This book opens with the discovery of the body of Alice Salmon, a 25 year old journalist The police treat her death as suspicious, not ruling out suicide, murder or accidental death The narrator, a professor at the Southampton university that she attended, decides to reconstruct her life from her online posts, text messages, photos, friends posts, diary entries, etc The book has a slow start and is somewhat difficult to follow, as it switches back and forth between the various entries and letter [...]

    Die Idee an sich und den Charakter von Alice fand ich mega gut ausgekl gelt und sehr spannend An der Umsetzung hapert es aber gewaltig Die Briefe von Jeremy Cooke waren einfach teilweise so unn tig und laaaaaaangatmig, sodass ich die sp ter nur noch berflogen habe Leider waren diese am h ufigsten vertreten So ein ekelhafter und perverser alter Sack Sorry aber zu dem f llt mir nix netteres ein D
