Opinion

From Library Staff

A thriller told from the perspective of three narrators: a woman, her ex-husband, and his fiance. The storyline is intricate and nonlinear and the characters are likable, but unreliable. This one will keep you guessing. --

Really great read! Suspenseful and a page turner! Probably one of my favorites I have read this year. You will love this book if you liked Gone Girl, really reminds me of that kind of plot twist.

When you read this book, you will make many assumptions. You will assume you are reading about a jealous wife and her obsession with her replacement. You will assume you are reading about a woman about to enter a new marriage with the man she loves. You will assume the first wife was a disaster and that the husband was well rid of her. You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships. Assume nothing.

(Description taken from library catalog.)

I gave up about one-third of the way through the book. It got rave reviews, but I don't know why. It's way too confusing, as the description implies.

Another book in the "Gone Girl on the Train" vein. I read this one in about 3 days; I would have finished earlier if I didn't have to sleep/eat/work--you know, live my life. The story unfolds at first with a nice back and forth between two connected characters. Then Part 2 starts up and the twists really begin to unfold. The authors manage to build a fairly intense thriller that picks up speed nicely as it goes along. I found the ending twist to just be OK--it just was not as shocking as I think they were going for. That said, this is a great summer-time beach/airplane/hammock read.

I give this book a rating of 5 stars. It had me guessing the whole way through. The book was very slow in the beginning. But I had heard many good things about this book, so I kept reading. It started to get good at about 40% of the way through. It was very suspenseful and had many twists and turns. I recommend reading it.

Very very good beginning, good twist. But then it falters a little with the ending.

I like a story that grabs you right away and keeps my interest. I couldn't put this book down! Filled with twists and turns, it kept me guessing until the very end. If you enjoy a good psychological thriller, don't miss this title.

Sucked me right in and kept me intrigued in wrapping my brain around the twists. However I was a bit disappointed in how it devolved into the same old story (and I won't reveal what story that is because you should still read it!).

Interesting read. Two of the main stories are repeats. Don’t know if they are repeats of her other books or somewhere else.

This was an ok, entertaining book. By no means did it keep me riveted. There also seems to be something fundamentally off with the writing style. It just didn't flow like it should.
