Book Review: The Interview by C.M. Ewan

“Your only way out is to answer a seemingly impossible question. If you can’t… what happens next?”

Set to be published on 17th February, The Interview by C.M. Ewan follows Kate Harding who arrives at The Mirror, an office block in London, at 5pm on a Friday for an interview for her dream job. Thirteen floors above the city below, she’s all alone with the man interviewing her. Everyone else has gone home for the weekend. As the interview gets more and more disturbing, Kate’s only way out is to answer a seemingly impossible question. If she can’t… what will happen next?


Thank you to NetGalley for a free digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Interview is an interesting and fast-paced thriller with some clever ideas and a claustrophobic setting.

However, I think your enjoyment of this thriller will depend on how you think would react in this situation. Because if you would find it tense and nerve-wracking, then this book is sure to get your heart rate pounding. But if, like me, you think you’d be a little stubborn and not quite believe the seriousness of the situation, then the shocks don’t come as easily.

I personally didn’t find this one very effective, but I did enjoy Ewan’s writing and the concept is a great one, so I’d definitely recommend this if you like more action-heavy thrillers that avoid more twisted, psychological issues.
