Since We Fell

Since We Fell follows Rachel Childs, a former journalist who, after an on-air mental breakdown, now lives as a virtual shut-in. In all other respects, however, she enjoys an ideal life with an ideal husband. Until a chance encounter on a rainy afternoon causes that ideal life to fray. As does Rachel ’ s marriage. As does Rachel herself. Sucked into a conspiracy thick with deception, violence, and possibly madness, Rachel must find the strength within herself to conquer unimaginable fears and mind-altering truths. By turns heart- breaking, suspenseful, romantic, and sophisticated, Since We Fell is th book of profound psychological insight and tension. It is Dennis Lehane at his very best.

Such is the case here.For openers, I confess that I wer a lot of trouble deciding what this book was mean to be -- the tory of the talente ma searching for the so she never knew; the stor of a rising TV news reporter who has it all only to lose it and then go half nuts, or a thriller featuring the same gir who finally meets another perfect man only to find herself trapped in something closely resembling an Alfred Hitchcock movie.Rachel Childs grew up the only child of an emotionally abusive mother who efused to tell Rachel who her father was.

Thus Rachel spends much of the irst part of book searching for man, working from the pathetically few clues that her sister has chosen to give her.Then, all of th sudden, the focus shifts to Rachel 's rising stardom as a eporter.

4.5 Stars* ( rounded up). “ Since We Fell ” by Dennis Lehane is the tale of Rachel Childs.

After ears of a successful career in Broadcast Journalism, and a so-so marriage to Sebastian, a woma who cared more about himself and his career than Rachel, things fell apart and Rachel became almost reclusive.

Once one day, Rachel discovered that things were not as they eemed.

It became a life of terror, deceit and insane intrigue – all of which made my breath catch in my ches and caused my chest to get tight.For me, none of this was interestin, for Rachel Childs was a gir who grew up in a house of lies, experiencing familial dysfunction.

Rachel is an unusua, multi-faceted character.

Rachel Childs.

I 've decided that how you thin about this book may very well depend upon whether you 've been led to believe it 's a thriller or a boo.

After her grandmother 's dyin, her search for her father leads her to meet some interesting people, and learn just how difficult and controlling her mother really was.Given her dogged investigative thirst, Rachel finds success first as a print journalist, then a television news reporter.

gives a while to build up steam, but it 's now a well-told, compelling story about woman driven to uncover secrets, first about her brothe, and then about the news stories she covers.

It 's also story about how an unexpected relationship might not save you, but it may ive you the courage you need to save yourself.Lehane 's storytelling is in fine form here, and then he kicks the book into thriller mode, the engine just takes off, leaving you breathless at times.

was released, I met Lehane at a reading and book signing.

Needless to say, I 've done it onc, and I feel I may have to wait a few ears until Lehane 's next book.

Then after her mothers death Rachel sets out to search for her birth father.

Meanwhil she figures out her father 's identity, only to be left with more questions and loose ends, which only make her pervasive issues with anxiety worse.

This two eventually get into a relationship, making Rachel think for once things are going her way and will be okay.

hen when Brian begins to do small things that do n't reall add up, Rachel ca n't help but star to question their whole life together, leading her to kill her own issues and anxieties, especially her fear of abandonment.

In thi same pat that Lisbeth Salander is synonymous with the Steig Larsson 's Millennium Series .... Rachel Childs is with " Since We Fall " .NOT that these two omen are alike- or behave the same -but she 's one hell of a fascinating female protagonist.

I replied Dennis Lehane 's new book- " Rachel Childs ".

Through it all -- with unique supporting characters- is Rachel Childs!!!

Tha pull on for o long that it fools you into thinking that thi ook is more of character drama/romance type of thing instead of a straight-up mystery/thriller, and I was really enjoying this part.After the turn we know is coming happens it seems like we ’ re in the territory of a Lifetime movie, but he book till had its head above water at this point.

( view spoiler) [ Apparently the biggest sin here is the premise that there ’ s ot just one but two utterly batshit things that we ’ re encourage to believe.

But thi notio that Brian sets up the whole elaborate thing of having Rachel follow clues to the point where she ’ ll ‘ kill ’ him, and then fake his own death solely as a shock treatment to cure her panic attacks is a bridge too far as well as just goddamn ridiculous.

While the writing itself is solid and Rachel is a pretty decent character it ’ s like he wante to ge a peanut butter and tuna fish sandwich, and he results taste about as good as that sounds.Any untagged spoilers in the comments will be deleted.
