Translated from French, The Reunion tells the story of three friends attending a school reunion. Thomas, Maxime and Fanny were best friends with Vinca when at age 19 she seemingly ran away with her philosophy teacher never to be seen again. The school gymnasium is due to be demolished soon and the three friends know there is a body hidden behind the concrete walls. What did happen to Vinca and why is there a body hidden at the school.
Told in a duel timeline I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was a very absorbing read and I found I couldn’t put it down. I kept turning the pages trying to figure out what was going to happen next.
I really enjoyed the way we slowly got to know each character and what secrets they were hiding it really gave an edge to the story which was very twisty and full of surprises. Like with any thriller, I love to play along and try to guess the outcome and each time I thought I had it I was proved wrong.
I have to say I really did enjoy this book, it’s filled with tension within a beautiful setting and it’s a thrilling page turner that I will definitely be recommending.
