Characters with out of body abilities. Written well enough and the plot moves along reasonably fast, which is why I gave it three stars, but . . . .

An awful ending. Quit reading two or three chapters before the end. Just quit.

I wish there was a classification for this type of book, so I could avoid it! The final twist is great but the first 250 pages bored me.

An amazingly confusing psychological thriller. The story could be compared to watching a loom weaving something vague and unknown. It goes on until the end when the dots meet each other. I was completely surprised at the ending, and had to review it a second time to ensure that I understood the full plot.

Behind Her Eyes was a fast-paced psychological thriller that had me guessing until the very last page. I could not believe the twist at the end! If you liked The Wife Between Us or An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, you'll love Behind Her Eyes.

Loved it. Wonderful twist at the end.

I found the book to be slow, but the ending was a real mind bender.

This book was a great and fast paced read. The best part is the twist at the end. I was not expecting it and I love it when books surprise me. Sarah Pinborough is my new favorite author. If you love suspense, you will love her books!

I thought this book was thouroughly entertaining, but you need an open mind to enjoy it. I think it's brilliant and incredibly creative.

Good reading, BUT I really had to remember who is who.

An O.K. book. Would have been a great book except for the fantasy angle (do not enjoy fantasy).
