Not up to the hype,
This review is from: The Silent Wife (Paperback)
This novel is an easy read with each chapter being headed 'her' or 'him'. As this suggests the story is told in turn from alternate viewpoints.
I found that the book read rather like a psychology self help book, especially in the sections when 'The Silent Wife' Jodi is retrospectively in session with her therapist, and this seeps into the rest of the novel creating some repetition here and there. This is also inevitable I suppose when the same story is being told from two standpoints.
I enjoyed the book and would probably recommend it but I really don't think it lives up to the hype in the blurb on the covers - back and front! I have previously read much more 'engrossing' and 'compelling' books that really did have me 'racing through [it] to find out what happens next'. But then you don't have to take my word for it!
