Have You Met Nora?
I absolutely love Nicole Blades book Have You Met Nora? although I am totally on the fence about my feeling as they pertain to the protagonist, Nora. The book was well written and brilliantly thought out. Once I started reading I couldn’t stop until the very end. The twists and turns kept me at the edge of my seat. Each detail was well thought out and the author used some very real imagery to draw me into the life of Nora.
Who doesn’t like to win? Who doesn’t like to end up on top? What are you willing to do to get what you want? What lines are you willing to cross to make your dreams come true? These are all questions I had for myself while reading. There were moments I found myself really feeling for Nora and then a few pages later I thought she was getting exactly what she deserved. Have You Met Nora? is a book that will get into your head. We all know someone like Nora. There have been opportunities in each of our lives when we had a choice to make and we may or may not have chosen a path similar to Nora and her lies. She’s not a completely unlikeable character, but she’s also not someone you’d aspire to be like. Making a mistake and dusting yourself off to start again is one thing, but a life full of secrets, betrayal, and revenge is an entirely different story…it’s Nora’s story.
Overall, Have You Met Nora? is a great read and something I would recommend to a friend. This is an intense read and a definite page turner! 5 stars for sure!
