      2.5 although this was a quick read, I didn't like this as much as her full length novels. The first two, thirds of the novella were slower paced and suspenseful, seemed to be leading to a big reveal but then plunk, a rushed ending.

    2. Philomena Callan Cheekypee on said:

      This was a quick read. If your interested in seeing what this authors writing is like then this is the ideal read. After a stranger helps Chloe and her daughter out Chloe wants to thank him. However things don't go to plan. Even though her friend doubts his sincerity Chloe sees him for who he is.I'm giving this a 3.5. It's a quick read that certainly had me thinking. However I thought that the lead up would have given me more than the disappointing ending. I would have liked to see more to the e [...]

      The Warning by Sophie Hannah is a 2015 Witness Impulse Publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review by the publisher and Edelweiss. The Warning is a suspenseful novella that might give you a little something to chew on. For a short story, I thought the author did an excellent job of creating a dark and atmospheric situation that had me feeling a little jumpy and uneasy. One part of me was sure I knew which direction the story would take, while another part of [...]

      This is the first short story of Hannah’s I’ve read. I fell firmly on the shelf with the novel Little Face and felt the author’s identify hadn’t yet been fully established. This was perhaps a brave choice of her many novels to be shortened into a quick read, bearing in mind the heavy topic. Chloe and her young daughter are approached by a stranger who quite literally saves the day and retrieves daughter’s sheet music for an important audition. Afterward, Chloe sets out to find the hand [...]

    5. SamB on said:

      What a complete load of rubbish. Unbelievable characters, a whole load of telling-not-showing, and a weak resolution/concept in the first place. It's like Hannah wrote the Quick Read as a short version of one of her regular crime books, but without any of the slow, creeping buildup and the engageable, identifiable characters. It's like she went to one of her regular story ideas that she'd dumped for not being good enough, and then stripped out 300 pages to fit it to the brief for this series. So [...]

      this was by far the stupidest story I've ever read. there's not much more to say. it could have been so much more but I was left like. "what"???

      Review: THE WARNING by Sophie HannahTHE WARNING is one tremendously scary story! Right to the end, the reader doesn't know which characters are trustworthy, which are con artists, or which are simply deluded fools. I expect many devoted readers will stay awake at night trying to figure an answer; especially any reader who's ever encountered a wrong type of person, been wronged, or led astray. THE WARNING is a Don t miss, fast read, and inspires me to read all Ms. Hannah's books.

    8. Michelle on said:

      I usually like Sophie Hannah and feel I am in good hands when reading her books (although have lost the plot a bit with her more recent offerings). This started well but, for me, fell apart with the arrival of Simon and Charlotte, and the end was a total, 'WTF?' 'Quick reads' don't have to be rushed like this - we still deserve a decent ending.

    9. Naomi on said:

      Absolutely bad. I normally give 2 stars to anything properly proofread, but this is loaded with stupid, unlikeable characters, badly thought out scenarios, plot holes, and a pointless ending.

    10. Renny Barcelos on said:

      Very inteesting short story. I do not like the detectives Sophie Hannah created but the writing style and plots area always amazing. I like to see each of these books as standalones with some annoying police people getting in the way of good characters.

    11. Regina Widya on said:

      Like really?? What's the point of all these? I can't believe the book was over just like that. As if it's still in the middle of a chapter and the author just decided to quit. This was bad. The conversations were long and exaggerated, while actually they're discussing nothing, really. Don't bother.

    12. emma on said:

      I really like Sophie Hannah, but this was beyond dire. Infantile dialogue, a colander plot, and the main character Chloe was such a simpering insipid moron that the idea she'd ever be the object of anything other than contempt was completely unbelievable. Avoid.

    13. Vivian on said:

      Chloe is a single mom, and on the day of her daughter's audition for a musical, she's unknowingly left the sheet music in her car, in a garage that's too far away to retrieve in time for the audition. Tom Rigbey (aka an errant knight) comes to her rescue on his speedy steed (aka his bicycle) and retrieves the sheet music just in the nick of time. When Chloe tracks Tom down and provides him with a "thank you" gift, she receives a strange warning from one of Tom's coworkers. Chloe doesn't pay heed [...]

      I love quick reads, they allow you to experience authors you may never of read before and you could discover a really great one. Sophie Hannah is an author I have heard a lot about but have never read one of her books. This was the perfect opportunity for me to experience her writing style in a Quick Read. This book had all the aspects that could have made it great, unfortunately I was let down by it. I found it to be a little silly and disappointed with the plot.Chloe and Lorna's relationship w [...]

      This was a nice, short read if you're in the mood for a bit of a puzzle.Chloe and her daughter are on the way to an event that is very important to her daughter. They run into a bit of a jam - and are offered help by a kind man on his bicycle.This starts a new relationship for Chloe that kind of turns her world into a tailspin.I enjoyed the story and wanted to figure out the puzzle, and I must say - I didn't figure it out. However, this is a short story so things moved a bit too quickly for me a [...]

    16. Mondays on said:

      Nothing happens in this story. (view spoiler)[ The main character does nothing, and doesn't even worry about whether or not the man she's fallen in love with is a sociopath. Other characters do the worrying and investigating for her, off-screen. Then it turns out another minor character was the REAL sociopath, and all the worrying was for nothing. So, nothing happened, no one learned anything, and nothing changed except the protagonist is now engaged to a rich, handsome, kind, genius man after k [...]

      Fun, quick read. A story featuring her characters from her Spilling CID series about a woman who meets a man and is warned about him. When she believes the warning and starts to question her attraction, she meets the detectives who check out the man and help her to see what to believe or to question.Interesting, fun author. I will read other books by her featuring these detectives - looks like a fun series with an interesting take on crime fiction. ARC from Edelweiss.

    18. Claire on said:

      Great short read. This was the first story i have read by this author and would definitely read another book by this author. This story kept my interest and had a little twist to the tale. Really enjoyed this short story

    19. Onnica (I Love Romantic Fiction blog) on said:

      Oh my God. What an ado about nothing. Infuriating and unrealistic characters, but a plot that kept me reading somehow. A strange mix of horrible people, but well-written story. An unsatisfying ending however.

    20. Alex on said:

      Ridiculous and completely ludicrous plot. I pretty much hated all of the characters; Chloe for her stupidity, her best friend for her pompous righteousness, Tom for his sinister and creepy ways Yet I think I was supposed to find them endearing?? Big thumbs down.

    21. Ellie on said:

      An odd and not very believable storyline; too many questions unanswered (ok, it's a Quick Read, but even so, the story should still have a beginning, middle and end). The most burning question being: Why does Chloe put up with Lorna?

    22. Emma on said:

      I suppose it was fit for purpose, a Quick Read, but rather puerile.

    23. Louise Jones on said:

    24. Andrea Trenary on said:

      I finished this. But it was crap. The main character was infuriatingly stupid. And I thought I had 50 pages left for something to happen. Some kind of a proper ending. Or something interesting. But no. It’s a preview for the next book. This is my first time reading this author and this book certainly doesn’t make me want to read anything of hers again.

    25. Jas Dosanjh on said:

      I loved the writing, it was easy to read and kept me gripped until the end. The ending was a nice gentle reminder that we should not let other people influence how we feel about someone. I even gave it to my 13-year old son to read and he enjoyed it, though I think he was expecting more of a big ending.

    26. Kinga on said:

      Actually I did not abandon it per se, but I just skimmed through the whole book as I wanted to know how it ends. It was so bad I could not bring myself to spend any more time on it. Here is a quote, to give you a hint: "Ah, voila Mademoiselle Freya!" Tom exclaims. I don't speak French, but I'm guessing that he said something like, "Here comes the lovely Freya."Yep. That. Bad.

    27. Judi Mckay on said:

      This is an excellent example of how to write a short but gripping novella. Sophie Hannah has delivered in this genre. Is there no end to her talents? While the plot is a little unbelievable, the ending left me thinking. Who is to be believed? Is the narrator reliable? It would be a good reading group choice.

    28. Tabitha Hudson on said:

      I like Sophie Hannah and wasn't disappointed with this book. Got this as a quick-read from the library, and it twists and turns nicely as I've come to look forward to from this author. You have to ask yourself whilst reading, do you follow your instincts or believe everyone else?

    29. Phan Wei on said:

      at the end I was like what??? in a good way. that's just Sophie Hannah
