Liz Nugent serves up an atmospherically chilling, macabre and twisted psychological thriller that illustrates with perfection that beauty really is only skin deep with her creation and character study of the appalling, monstrously repellent Delia. Nugent has few peers when it comes to writing abo...

Oops…she did it again!
A brilliantly-written tale of narcissism, obsession, and tragedy.
The author makes sure to do the settings justice by bringing them to life in an incredibly engrossing fashion.
Diving deep into the twisted psyche of a sociopath might not be for everyone. I personally found the...

Skin Deep is genuinely amazing. A truly memorable psychological character study.
It is a difficult one to review if I’m honest – the basis of the tale is simply the story of one woman and those whose lives she enters and leaves, but it’s impact on you is subtle, immeasurable and difficult to descr...

Oh dear...This book started with such promise, then turned into a nightmare for me. I was hooked to the story nearly half of the book and then it started getting really weird and uncomfortable.
I finished it just to finish and get over with it, very tempted to DNF as I was absolutely upset and dis...

This is my first taste of a Liz Nugent book and found this psychological thriller an addictive read that left me wanting to read more of her work. I found this book strangely captivating and although non of the characters were appealing or likeable in the slightest, I just had to read on.

Wow what a ride! I feel both dirty and enthralled after spending the last 370 odd pages with (Cor)Delia Russell. A both enthralling and repulsive novel at the same time.
The whole story follows the life of Delia Russell from a young age to her middle age. Growing up on a remote island off the West...

I really don't know how to review this book. I have read this book with a wide eyed fascination, in complete disbelief, at the way the main character was and the actions taken by her in her life, all selfish ones. There was no empathy, no tenderness, she almost seemed empty. A sociopath of sorts....
