I read this beauty in a day, had so much else to do but just couldn’t put it down.
What an absolute headf*** of a book!
I started the book wondering why it was called ‘The Interview’ when a whole entire book couldn’t just be about an interview surely, could it?
C M Ewan has created a tense and tightly focused story that had me absolutely hooked and deeply invested in the outcome. Kate is a great character, it was hard to imagine what I would have done in her situation.
I’ve seen a negative review of this book saying that how unrealistic it is… well durr, that’s what makes it such an exciting story! Of course it (hopefully) wouldn’t ever happen but then hey that didn’t do The Matrix or Harry Potter any harm did it!
So yes, Kate is a good character, so is Joel for that matter, and I had conflicting thoughts about him throughout the story. Her brother and his storyline was good too – a nice little side distraction from the tension of the the interview.
I would recommend reading the book over as short a period as possible, I couldn’t possibly have this as a book that I read for 15 mins or so here and there – mainly as I couldn’t put the damn thing down!
It’s 5 p.m. on a Friday.
You have been called to an interview for your dream job.
In a stunning office thirteen floors above the city below, you are all alone with the man interviewing you.
Everyone else has gone home for the weekend.
The interview gets more and more disturbing.
You’re feeling scared.
Your only way out is to answer a seemingly impossible question.
If you can’t . . . what happens next?
