Black Out: A Novel by Lisa Unger

Great storyline, nail-biting psychological thriller. There’s a saying, “If you feel alone, read a scary book and then you won’t feel alone anymore.” This is one of those, that your ears will start to wonder about the creak you thought you heard in the hallway. And what was that you saw out of the corner of your eye? Perhaps I will just stay awake and watch something very benign on tv. With all the lights on.

I have read most of Unger’s novels and have been extremely impressed with how accurately her characters who have PTSD or have suffered trauma are represented. I really enjoyed this story because of the strength of the main character. I completely got her – the split persona of the person she was before the traumatic event and the person she became as a result. Finding her own hero within herself, and the strength it takes to do that.
