Book Review: Look Behind You by Sibel Hodge


Published: May 3, 2014

Length: 238 pages

Mystery/Psychological Suspense

My Goodreads rating: 3 stars

Chloe Benson wakes up kidnapped and bound in an underground tomb with no memory of how she got there.

She escapes through deserted woods with her life, but no one believes her story.

And when she suspects her husband is lying to her, Chloe is forced to retrace her past, following in her own footsteps to find the truth and stay alive.

But who is following Chloe?

Look Behind You. You never know who’s out there.


This book was only interesting in first few chapters and the last two chapters. The middle of the book was a bit boring. I thought it was going to be a complete drag because the first and second chapters were written like the novel Shatter Me that I didn’t like at all. I wish it would have had a different series of events and a different outcome.

The author didn’t pay enough attention to the climax. The story building was great, but the climax was very weak. It should have been a lot more detailed and not as quick. I feel this story would have been 10x better if the person who did the kidnapping would have been someone else that we NEVER would have guessed (Sorry, I don’t want to spoil it for those who are interested in reading).

I didn’t like Chloe’s husband very much. He’s chauvinistic. I didn’t like the local law enforcement and health professionals as much either. It was too easy for them to write her off as some crazy lady. The gender roles and the social context for me were ridiculous. I also didn’t like how the author wrote the main character, Chloe in this story. I was waiting for a comeback, but she was helpless throughout the entire story.

I don’t want to say too much about it! All in all, I wouldn’t recommend this book.
