    • Much less engrossing and fun to read compared to books like Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train. The story was not compelling and there was little suspense. The chapters early on alternate between 1st person and third person in order to to unnecessarily confuse the reader. Revelations throughout and especially at the end were underwhelming and seemed forced. Characters were 2 dimensional at best (is she a victim or just paranoid?; is he a wonderful husband or abusive?). Information is withheld throughout in order to create interest but ends up being frustrating to the reader. In the end, it was mostly forgettable and not a book I would recommend.
    • Great read. I'm an avid reader and I have read a great many books. This story had me in the first chapter. Felt light, although some of the subject matter was heavy. Can't give anything away, but this was well thought out and very well written. Loved it. I highly recommend it!
    • This book has been in my TBR for so long and few days back, I got it from Amazon. I Was totally looking forward to reading it.So, the story talks about marriage. The hidden and bitter truth of marriage. That does not mean the story is all about the negative sides of marriage. No, it is totally not! This is just a another faucet of marriage, in someone else's story.We meet the characters, Richard, Vanessa (Richard's Ex-Wife) and Nellie his current wife (to be). Richard and Vanessa has been married for, like ten years and they get divorced under a lot of circumstances. Vanessa does not take the divorce in a good way. She becomes a constant intruder between Richard and Nellie, but she had her own reasons.The story is full of plot twists which goes on up and down, like a crazy roller coaster. This has a greater effect on the reader. Which is like this, You settle down by understanding a certain part of the story but, it is not what you think it will be. It turns out to be something totally different. This is the aspect that keeps the reader engaged in the book. Once you start reading it, you are totally into it. The story is that intriguing. You feel that you need to know more.I love almost all the characters, they were well-formed to keep the excitement in the story. I love the narrating style. The story is narrated to the reader from Vanessa's point of view and Nellie's point of view. How each of them face and see their lives, pre and post affects of marriage is well written.My Rating (4/5) ExceptionalThe reason on why I gave 4/5 stars is, that sometimes I got a bit confused with the plot twists. But definitely, it is not a negative point. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read thrillers. This extravagant story filled with love, hatred, and obsession, I feel is a must read.As the synopsis states, Assume nothing and be ready to get into this wonderful Psychological Thriller with magnificent plot twists.
    • It is a decent book but as I read on I couldn’t shake off the shadows of ‘The Girl on the train’ and ‘Gone Girl’, which both did a good job in the twists they promised. Not this book.There were so many questions I have after reading the book. First, Vanessa had planned for Emma to take her place. She had planned for Richard to leave her but in Part 1 of the story, it was as though she was depressed because her husband left her. She was drunk all the time (sounds familiar?). She was clearly upset. So why was she upset and depressed when she finally got her abusive husband to leave her as she had planned?Then came Part 2 where she became the heroine in the story, trying to save Emma from marrying Richard. She suddenly sobered up and was determined. The sudden change in character just wasn’t working out for me.Then there is Maureen. She obviously had a bigger role in the story. The authors hinted it but it wasn’t developed. They just left it hanging because it is coming towards the end of the book.The twist that was promised? Well it didn’t deliver for me. It was obvious that Richard was the one with the problem and the drinking problem that Vanessa had was screaming ‘The Girl on the Train’ at me. It would have been a real twist if Maureen was behind it all along.As I’ve said earlier, this is a decent book but with 2 great similar thrillers as predecessors, this book paled in comparison. It didn’t give me the twist I was expecting.I’m not sure what constitutes a good book. One that has too many questions left hanging to elicit more discussions or one that has a well thought out and executed storyline.
    • This is an escapist novel, with a mysterious tone which largely fails to captivate. The characters lacked depth, & a hinted nefarious act fails to materialize. The plot was repetitive, & the characters were stereotyped. If a reader wants a novel to,pass time, this might do,the trick, but it lacked "staying power," & the surprise ending seemed trite & motionless.
