My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Intriguing and nuanced

I stayed up late to finish this, which is always a good sign!

Extremely well done, and much better than Gone Girl (imo). I am reluctant to give spoilers so won’t; the twists were less plotty than i was expecting and far more nuanced. Fantastic character study and brilliant unreliable narrators, though i think one of male characters needed more of a wrap up at the end. Still, good as this was, I’m dying to read something speculative again, so will need a breather from all these thrillers with my next read.

Apologies for the short review but it’s such a famous novel that everyone will either have read it, or else not want spoilers.
