Description

A life lived in fast-forward and now, apparently, she should peak and crest and then come slowly, contentedly down the other side, but it doesn’t feel as if there ever was a peak, rather an abyss formed of trauma that she keeps circling and circling with a knot of dread in the pit of her stomach. But this year her birthday has fallen on a Saturday and this year she did not say, Oh, a takeaway and a bottle of wine will be fine, when Walter had asked what she wanted to do. After all, isn’t that why we love unrealistic horror movies, because we can watch but still feel detached from it all? However, my reason for not giving this a full 5 stars is that this final 15% felt as if it just lost steam and wasn’t sure of how it wanted to end, so it took a milder finale that had me feeling a little deflated, going from full speed ahead to a little bit of, “Wait, that’s it?

You May Also Like Mini Review | Apples Never Fall by Liane Moriarty April 18, 2023 The Expanse by James S. Special thanks to NetGalley and Atria Books for sharing this brilliant novels of digital copy in exchange my honest thoughts. Alix Summer is a popular podcaster who is celebrating her 45th birthday when she meets Josie, also celebrating her 45th birthday.The first two-thirds of the book was gripping and I would have given that five stars, but the last bit was anti-climatic. After reading a few pages, you find yourself drawn into riveting psychological thriller with unreliable characters, shocking revelations in podcast meets documentary blending in narration of incidents by hours and dates. It also really stretches believability when Alix notices her obvious psychotic tendencies, manipulation and lies and then leaves her alone in her house multiple times, sometimes even with her kids. I had a sense of panic from the beginning when the "birthday twins" Alix and Josie unexpectantly meet.

Perhaps if we’d had some POV from Josie after the shit hit the fan that would have cleared up her state of mind.Biography: Lisa Jewell's first novel, Ralph's Party, was published in 1999 and was the best-selling debut novel of the year. Many thanks to NetGalley, Atria, and Lisa Jewell for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review!

I have NEVER been more relieved to pick up my sunglasses and bask in the warm comforting glow of the summer sun! Even protagonist Alix has her blinders on selectively throughout and doesn't exactly do her due diligence with, well, anything. Lisa is a number one New York Times and Sunday Times author who has sold over ten million books worldwide and been published in over twenty-five languages. As Alix learns increasingly dark details about Josie’s life, she is disturbed but she doesn’t intervene, nor does she stop the podcast interviews.As the podcast continues, some very disturbing facts begin to reveal themselves, and Alix realises that she’s made a big mistake! I felt it was too ambiguous, and was confused what kind of conclusion the reader was supposed to make.

I would like to have seen the threads tied up nicely or differently, and then this would have been a clear 5 star book. When Josie offers her the opportunity to explore this intriguing life story, Alix is intrigued and decides to embark on a podcast journey with her. Anyway still entertaining but felt like there's a truly great version of this story in there that the author just couldn't get out. Alix comes into her life at just the right time--a podcast host, she is the perfect woman to help Josie share her intriguing story. In the end though, I still wanted a little bit more after all the highs and lows, something was missing for me.but at the same time, this mysterious and quirky woman slowly worms her way further into Alix's life. It doesn't end there, these two women seemingly share frustrations with each of their respective partners.
