#Review: The Watcher by Ross Armstrong

Welcome to my latest review- The Watcher by Ross Armstrong.

I really wanted to like this author's story, nothing wrong with it as such, it just wasn't the roller-coaster I imagined it would be. Still, it's worth a read!

The Blurb:

Lily Gullick lives with her husband Aiden in a new-build flat opposite an estate which has been marked for demolition. A keen birdwatcher, she can’t help spying on her neighbours.

Until one day Lily sees something suspicious through her binoculars and soon her elderly neighbour Jean is found dead. Lily, intrigued by the social divide in her local area as it becomes increasingly gentrified, knows that she has to act. But her interference is not going unnoticed, and as she starts to get close to the truth, her own life comes under threat.

But can Lily really trust everything she sees?

My Review:

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is an Amazon Vine review of a free book. I’m reviewing The Watcher by Ross Armstrong Here are my thoughts:

^^ Lily watches birds as a hobby but it’s really an excuse to spy on the neighbours.When a neighbour is killed, Lily becomes obsessed with finding the killer.

^^ I wasn’t hugely excited with this book, and although I read to the end keen to find a resolution, there was something about the delivery which didn’t engage me as much as I had hoped.

^^ I liked the idea that The Watcher was kind of Hitchcock themed, as it had similarities to Rear Window and hinted at The Birds, with the main character’s love of bird watching.

^^ Nevertheless, I thought the way Lily gave each person she spied on a character name and made up fantasy lives for them, was done pretty well. Alas, it just was not gripping enough for me.

Overall: It wasn’t my favourite read, as I found it a little flat, however, I did enjoy the final twist at the end, but not enough for me rate it higher than an “I liked it” three stars.

  1. I haven’t read the book but I’ll love to. Spying on the neighbors sounds interesting (not like I do that) and bird watching.. I don’t think that would ever be a hobby for me. I was drawn to your review by the name. #catchy title. Job well done
