I thoroughly enjoyed this suspenseful read despite solving the whodunit well before the conclusion. The whole premise of this story is pretty clever and was executed well. I loved the drama between Vee and her current, former, and new friends.

Hmm, on one hand I think this book had an interesting idea (with Vee being able to 'slide' into other people's minds) but the story itself was not that exciting. I like that the killer's identity was unexpected and mysterious, but the characters were completely boring to me.

An original idea that keeps you on your toes to the very end.

This book was an easy read and a great way to relax. I read this at night, which added to the scene and made this book wonderful and easy to enjoy. I loved all plots and turning points during this story. It makes your brain think.

Slide is a fast-paced thriller that keeps you guessing until the very end. If narcolepsy wasn’t hard to deal with by itself, Vee also has this terrifying ‘gift’ that she also has to deal with. Vee is a likeable character who has to cope with her condition by herself because everyone she has tried to tell thinks she is lying. Her sliding often happens quite unexpectedly and she can’t stop it. She often can’t tell who’s head she’ll end up in and it means she sometimes finds out the deepest secrets and fears of people she knows. I really liked how Jill Hathaway made the connection between sliding and objects with some sentimental value attached, which meant that Vee’s sliding wasn’t just random.

Jill builds up the tension throughout the story, right up until the chilling climax. Vee is the only one who knows the truth, but she can’t tell anyone she knows, and she’s afraid to talk to anyone in case that person is the killer. I hadn’t picked the killer so the finale was even better. My favourite part of the story was Vee’s realisation about her gift, as it gave her some hope that she could save her family.
