One of the best books I've read in a long time. Lisa Unger is a great storyteller. ( )

I like Lisa Unger and have read a few of her books - I'm a sucker for psychological thrillers and picked up Black Out because it looked promising. Overall it wasn't bad, though I did not particularly like any of the characters except Ophelia/Annie's dad, and I was not a fan of any of the character names: Ophelia, Gray, Victory, Marlowe, etc. The twists were good, though a little predictable, and I don't regret picking up Black Out.

I really liked this! It was suspenseful from beginning to end, and Unger did a good job of keeping it real. There were no moments of incredulity too ridiculous to accept that threw the reader out of the story. Men might find this a little tame -- while she hinted at atrocious acts, she doesn't describe any of them. And no lurid sex scenes. I really enjoyed her writing style. I'm going to check out her other works as well. ( )

Lisa Unger has written some great books and she’s written some stinkers. BLACK OUT is somewhere in between.

Ophelia grew up with unloving parents. Her father was mostly absent, both physically and mentally, and her mother seemed too stupid and selfish to be able to love her. As a result, Ophelia became unhinged, mentally ill. And it got worse while she willingly and unwillingly accompanied a murderer through several states. She was traumatized and unable to save herself.

Now Ophelia is Annie. She is happily married and has a child. (Speaking of which, both Ophelia/Annie and her mother pick names for their children like most people pick names for their pets. Victory?) Her mental illness, seemingly, continues.

Because I love this type of book, mystery/suspense/thriller, I often must have a willing suspension of disbelief. But BLACK OUT asks for too much. Why were Ophelia/Annie and her husband so duped? This is never adequately explained, at least not enough to suit me.

Worse, though, are the loose ends: Ophelia/Annie’s friend Ella and the detective. Who was Ella? Why is the detective there and suddenly not? No answers, just possibilities. ( )

Wow, this book has a lot of bizarre narrative. It's my first Unger book and I'm not sure if I'm going to delve into any more. I like a mystery. I like a good thriller. But when the character has to warn us in the beginning that things aren't good it just seems too much protestation and sometimes the books can't live up to the claims and suspense.

Black Out wasn't bad, it was just long. And not good Harry Potter long, more long winded, repeating some of the same story lines over and over and over again.

The basic plot is good, but a lot of other things just weren't. The description of the husband is cliche. They have a lot of money. It's the usual formula to write a book that is going to sell. That part I found just dull and annoying since it was repeated so much.

It's not bad. I just don't think it's as amazing as some think it is. But to each her own. ( )
