I’m not a huge fan of psychological thrillers but I find myself listening to them on audiobook as I drive to and from work and as I cook or clean. I listened to this book after a suggestion on my review of The Wife Between Us. When I was about half way through it I wandered what I had gotten myself into because the narrator irritated me.
Without giving too much away, Finn writes the narrator to be unreliable. Anna Fox is agoraphobic and has not left her house in almost a year. Part of her day is watching the neighbors through the lens of her Nikon. Her interactions with people are limited to those that come visit or call. Anna’s world has become very limited.
This book actually surprised me. I did not like it for most of the time I listened to it. There were times I even turned it off. However, the ending was worth it. The climax of this book brings all the things I did not like together and gives them a purpose. Finn writes the suspense well giving Anna and the reader a shock. This book is written in first person and it helps to really get into Anna’s head and make the climax so much better.
I’d love to know what you thought of this book and I am always open to suggestions for new books to read. Happy reading and have a great start to your week.
