Review: Identity X by Michelle Muckley – Some amazing plot twists! :)


Amazon | Goodreads




Grade: A

This book is about a scientist named Ben, he is trying to find a cure for the disease that kills his father. His childhood friend is as evil as they come and his wife is not who he thinks she is. All of this combined made this a very interesting read.

The twists and turns are so enthralling you will find it hard to put this book down. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to find out what was going to happen. It’s a well written thriller and you will find yourself wondering just who can be trusted.

The characters are seem to be like real people, especially Ben. He feels like a real person with flaws and all. They are all well written. This author really know what she is doing.

There see a few situations that happen and I found myself thinking stuff like this just doesn’t  happen. Other than these few things I loved this book. The plot twist are some of the most well written I have read in a very long time. I really couldn’t see where the story was going and loved all the surprises. I love a book that is not predictable, it makes it a very exciting read. It will definitely keep you are on the edge of your seat.

I received this book in return for an honest review.


About The Author:



I was born in the town of Warwick in 1981. It is a small historical town in the heart of England, and Ι was the fifth child born into a family of boys. I developed a huge interest in the written world from a young age, and with more than a little help from Roald Dahl found quite the taste for anything gross and gory. Book club at primary school only proved to increase my love of escaping into the world of a book. Whilst six years at secondary school did little to quell the romantic notion of one day sitting in my mountain cabin and smoking a celebratory cigarette as the first novel was born, somewhere within those six years the dream of becoming a writer got put on hold. Still resting quietly in the background were those long and lingering desires to once again rediscover those old aspirations to write.

About six years ago, with the smouldering embers of a childhood dream sparking uncomfortably underfoot there was what can only be called an epiphany. Who is it that actually becomes a writer? It’s the people who write. It’s the people who actually do more than say, ‘I have a dream’. Whilst this may sound simplistic, it was the revelation I needed to sit down and type Chapter One. The first book, The Loss of Deference was no longer just a fantasy and slowly became a workable manuscript. It was then sent out in eagerness before it was properly edited and therefore it was duly returned, and along with it I collected a nice set of standard rejection letters. Six years later, having uprooted from England to settle on the southern Mediterranean shores of Cyprus, the dream to publish the book once deemed nothing more than a pipe dream is now a reality. I am still working as a part time scientist, but I am also writing daily. When I am not sat at the computer typing about the darker side of life, you will find me hiking in the mountains, drinking frappe at the beach, or talking to myself in the kitchen in the style of an American celebrity chef. Just think Ina Garten.
