The Classroom by A.L. Bird – oh my goodness, what a gripping psychological thriller. I could not put it down and read it in just one sitting. The action twisted this way and that – I knew who the manipulator was – or did I? I suspected just about everyone before the jaw dropping reveal.
Truth, lies, manipulation, real, imagined – all themes within the novel showing the deviousness of people. The main thing seems to be to get your own way, no matter who gets hurt along the way.
Children are a gift. What do you do if you suspect neglect?
To what lengths will you go to achieve your dream? How many people will you tread on?
Are you sure you know your enemy?
A marvellous mix of characters are to be found within The Classroom. Some elicit sympathy, some disgust. Truth and lies blend until even the reader questions their own sanity.
The Classroom is one of the best psychological thrillers I have read. I really didn’t spot the action coming. I had trouble distinguishing the real from the imagined. A totally brilliant plotline. Absolutely mesmerising.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
