Book Review: Invisible Girl by Lisa Jewell

Review of Invisible Girl

Rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 


LONDON: On a fine avenue of grand houses, big cars and electronic gates, lies a neglected urban wasteland

It is nearly midnight, and very cold. Yet in this dark place of long grass and tall trees where cats hunt and foxes shriek, a girl is waiting…

When Saffyre Maddox was ten something terrible happened and she’s carried the pain of it around with her ever since. The man who she thought was going to heal her didn’t, and now she hides from him, invisible in the shadows, learning his secrets; secrets she could use to blow his safe, cosy world apart.

Owen Pick is invisible too. He’s thirty-three years old and he’s never had a girlfriend, he’s never even had a friend. Nobody sees him. Nobody cares about him.

But when Saffyre Maddox disappears from opposite his house on Valentine’s night, suddenly the whole world is looking at him. Accusing him. Holding him responsible.

Because he’s just the type, isn’t he? A bit creepy?

INVISIBLE GIRL: A story of secrets and injustices, and of how we look in the wrong places for the bad people while the real predators walk among us in plain sight.


1. The Magic Potion

A suspenseful read with some well-developed characters!

This is a story of lies, secrets, perceptions, and much more…

2. A Big Fan

A story with a great plot, intriguing characters, and the writing style is absolutely brilliant.

3. Tell me More

The highlight for me were definitely the characters, their backgrounds, and how they interacted with each other. I was quickly invested in each one of them and genuinely cared about their respective fates, so kudos to the Author.

4. Not a Big Fan

However, the big reveal did not live up to the intense build-up and I was left slightly underwhelmed but that’s probably because I expected something a tad more intricate.

5. The Final Verdict

All in all, it’s a great story that I’ll definitely recommend.

I would like to thank the Publishers, NetGalley, and the Author for sending me a copy of this book.
