Now that we’ve got that out of the way…
I finally managed to borrow this book from someone (thank you Caroline!) and I spent the weekend discovering what all the fuss was about.
I have admit that despite being someone who reads a lot of crime fiction, I did particularly enjoy this one. It was obviously written with a lot of care and attention to detail. The characters struck me as well rounded and human without being like those intolerable anti-heroes that seem to be popular these days but who I detest and can’t read about.
Anyway – I’m not going to go on and on about the gist of the story, but I will mention that I found it particularly refreshing that it didn’t turn out to be a Gone Girl situation. It was more real than that. All of it was real. From the gaslighting done by the main character’s ex, to the violence she experienced at the hands of not one, but two men.
Actually the whole thing was just creepy because it wasn’t too hard to imagine any of it happening for real.
