“A gothic tale, filled with brilliantly creepy details.” (Suzy Hansen Financial Times (UK))

“As in the best of Patricia Highsmith, it’s not entirely clear whether a crime is being committed at all…it’s a measure of the novel’s quality that re-reading does not resolve everything but drives the ambiguities deeper…The Engagement reminds us of the powers of fiction.” (The Guardian Review (U.K.))

“A book of coercion and sexual games, fantasy and, yes, feminism, for those who prefer their erotic literature less Fifty Shades of Grey and more Jane Eyre…This high-octane theatre is perversely satisfying, even as we succumb to its manipulation.” (The Telegraph (U.K.))

“Hooper has crafted a terrific tale full of dark corners and dead-ends that leave the reader wondering what to believe. The result is a creepy collision between a psychological thriller and a very dark romance that has something for fans of either genre.” (Robert Dex Irish Examiner)

“Chloe Hooper’s second novel is a complex psychological thriller that draws on the rich literary history of madwomen in the attic, from Jane Eyre and Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ to Daphne du Maurier’s RebeccaThe Engagement is shot through with a deeply erotic charge without being explicity pornographic. It’s no Fifty Shades of Grey; its kicks, and kicks in the teeth, are much more subtle.” (The Independent (U.K.))

“A probing analysis of the psychology of sex…Hooper has constructed a modern fairy tale…compelling, at times disturbing.” (The Herald (U.K.))

“[The Engagement] deftly explores the power of money and property, romance and sex.” (Marie Claire (UK))

“A chilling, compulsive read.” (Fanny Blake Woman & Home (UK))

“[A] seductive plot.” (Sebastian Shakespeare Tatler (UK))

“This beautifully crafted psychological thriller really got under my skin...Hooper’s achievement is to make us frightened for Liese and, increasingly, frightened of her, too.” (A.N. Wilson Reader’s Digest (U.K.))

“A deftly written, tonally smooth, technically adroit and penetrating study of psychological extremity. . . . Hooper shrouds the narrative in an uneasiness whose source is everywhere and nowhere simultaneously.” (Geordie Williamson The Australian)

“There is much to admire in The Engagement . . . a novel that is artfully and coldly controlled, one that is also disturbingly anti-erotic.” (Peter Pierce The Age)

“Hooper's writing is beautifully clean, clear and candid . . . The novel raises interesting
questions about the psychology of desire and of memory.” (Katharine England The Advertiser (Australia))

“A gripping read.” (Maggie Linley Geelong Advertiser (Australia))

“A suspense thriller that trips the reader up every time answers seem about to appear . . . A gripping read. This haunting story provokes questions long after the final page.” (Sam Van Zweden Big Issue (Australia))

“To home in on the signs of the zeitgeist is the mark of a savvy writer. Even if unconscious, there's genius in nabbing a theme people have been gnawing away at deep in their collective psyches. Some writers, ahead of their time, are condemned to be appreciated posthumously. Others, hoping to cash in on a trend, can find themselves mired in cliché. But hitting the nail right on the head is a special gift. In this book Chloe Hopper displays it in spades . . . The Engagement is a psychological thriller . . . As well as creating an intriguing protagonist, Hooper writes with wit and aplomb.” (Sara Dowse Canberra Times (Australia))

“This psychological thriller is a taut, unnerving read, and Hooper's exquisitely rendered settings are the perfect stage for the tissue-like layers of awakening between victim and controller.” (Shari Tagliabue Townsville Bulletin (Australia))


A gripping, provocative new novel by the acclaimed author of The Tall Man and A Child's Book of True Crime. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

If you give in to the story though, it does achieve that heart-racing tension that the best gothic fiction achieves. At the very least, Liese's stories of her year traveling will prove to be a lot more entertaining that those of most people. It's a satisfyingly creepy, if slightly daft, escapist story.

Sorry, I feel a bit cheated, I would need a clue at the height of tension and suspense about what's happening next. There is maybe an obvious answer but my logical mind can't accept it. Or else I missed something.
