    I Know My Name was really beautifully done. A page turner of a novel with genuine emotional resonance at the core of it I was completely caught up in the story of Eloise and Lochlan as he desperately searches for her and she tries to remember what happened to her.It is a psychological thriller but with a slightly different vibe. There isn’t a huge mystery or a huge twist in the tale, CJ Cooke simply opens her characters up to the reader and let...

    I received a free electronic copy of I Know My Name by C.J. Cooke from NetGalley for my honest review. This book is a very intense psychological thriller that sucks you in from the first chapter. A very deep read with lots of twists to it. A story a a happily married woman with two children who goes missing and leaves behind her husband and children. A very emotional book about childhood abuse and how it affects a person many years later and ment...

    Oops. I left this one as a "review to come" for a looong time.---I’m really sad to be posting this review with only 3 stars but that’s just the way it is. I began this book really excited and loving it, all the way to around 60% where things started to go downhill for me. Let me explain my thoughts…First thing to note with this novel is the passion and emotion it’s written with. There is absolutely no doubt that Cooke has a knack for writ...

    Sometimes when I read books I'm amazed at the intricacies that authors can manage. What starts as a simple disappearance of a woman turns into a complicated & fascinating story that unfolds a tad bit at a time. And the ending wasn't storybook but fulfilling all the same. Brilliant!

    A few words spring to mind, when describing ‘I Know My Name’ – moving, disturbing and thought-provoking. This is a book to discover, if you want something a little bit different from the run of the mill psychological thriller.The story concerns the mystery of Eloise. A woman in her thirties finds herself on a Greek island. She has amnesia. Who is she? Why is she there? On the island, the handful of inhabitants want to help her. Can she trus...

    This was actually a book I mistakenly downloaded but I must confess I really enjoyed. We are introduced to a woman suffering some form of acute amnesia who appears to be living on a Greek Island called Kommeno. How did this woman arrive there? Who are the mysterious residents of the island who seem to want to help....or do they? Back in the UK Lochlan Shelley is at a business meeting in Scotland when he receives an urgent call from a neighbour wh...

    “The only way to get off this island is to remember.”C.J. Cooke’s debut novel, I Know My Name, is a surprisingly effective and page-turning psychological thriller that delves into the human psyche. There are twinned stories here: Locklan is a Type A businessman who two young children at home—a toddler named Max and a 12-week old baby Cressida—who discovers that his wife is missing. His story is interwoven with his wife’s harrowing tal...
