Rating: 4 out of 5.


Strangers by C.L. Taylor is a fast paced book with a lot going on that will keep you interested.

Ursula, Gareth, and Alice all end up in different strange situations. All three are used to not having anyone to count on, so do not like relying on others. Their stories end up twisted together and they must work together as strangers in order to survive.

Strangers is an extremely fast paced book. From the beginning there is so much happening. I really enjoyed it and was hooked from the beginning. The separate stories were all very unique and interesting. Usually in stories like this I can’t wait for the stories to intertwine, but I was so invested in the separate stories that I was in no rush for them to intertwine.

Strangers is the perfect amount of suspense, action and character development. Dating struggles, missing mom, weird roommates, and getting dating advice from their child all added to the intrigue of Strangers.

Strangers is a very unique story and I am so glad I read it.

I listened to the audiobook and Clare Corbett did an excellent job narrating. Her voice really added to the story.

I recommend Strangers for anyone looking for a fast paced thriller.

Thank you NetGalley and Avon/Harper Collins Audio UK for Strangers.

  1. I keep finding great thriller recommendations from you that I haven’t heard of yet! This one sounds great. I need to add this to my list. I love the way this sounds. Everyone working together in hopes of surviving. That sounds great and just seems like something is bound to go wrong. Great review!
