To me, this book did not live up to the hype. The main part of the book describes the lives of "two women". There was nothing particularly interesting about the "first wife" or the "new wife". For all intents and purposes, the first wife's (apparent) fascination with the new wife was anything you might see in real life, just a little bit dramatic.That went on for far too long before the "reveal" , which turned the book into an even more predictable narrative about an overly controlling and abusive husband (that's not the reveal, it's something else). After slogging through the majority part of the book where the first wife appeared to be semi-stalking the second wife, I expected something a lot more interesting than the supposed "twist" that has been teased in the summaries. I did finish the entire book, but only because having read it 2/3 of the way though, I just wanted to see the husband get his due... and even THAT was less than satisfying.
