Allmänna fakta



You Will Know Me i Crime, Thriller & Mystery (juli 2017)


I've enjoyed Megan Abbott's other books, but this one . . . not so much. It's very dark, which I usually like, but I felt like I needed to take a shower after I finished reading it. The characters are all thoroughly unlikeable, slippery, enigmatic, and annoying, although I think a lot of that was Ms. Abbott's writing style which seemed unnecessarily loopy at times rather than straightforward. This was probably my least favorite of her novels.

Creepy thriller about a pregnant woman who visits her father-in-law with her husband and then the fun begins. There is a looming sense of dread throughout, and although the story is a little far-fetched, it's entertaining. I enjoyed it.

This was pretty awful.

I apparently need a shelf for things I read because it turns out that I need more books than I can carry for two weeks in Europe and there's no English language bookstores in the Swiss Alps and my library app limits what I can download internationally.

This book is utter crap. Complete and utter crap. Paper thin characters. The least mysterious mystery. I'm not totally sure Megan Abbott was ever a teenage girl, but, wow, that is NOT what it's like. Also, it reads super slowly. I seriously considered DNF'ing it despite having literally no reading alternative. Not really any redeeming features.… (mer)
