Publisher's Summary

Today I know that L. is the sole reason for my powerlessness. And that the two years that we were friends almost made me stop writing forever.
Overwhelmed by the huge success of her latest novel, exhausted and unable to begin writing her next book, Delphine meets L.
L. is the kind of impeccable, sophisticated woman who fascinates Delphine - a woman with smooth hair and perfectly filed nails and a gift for saying the right thing. Delphine finds herself irresistibly drawn to her, their friendship growing as their meetings, notes and texts increase. But L. begins to dress like Delphine, and, in the face of Delphine's crippling inability to write, L. even offers to answer her emails, and their relationship rapidly intensifies. L. becomes more and more involved in Delphine's life until she patiently takes control and turns it upside down: slowly, surely, insidiously.
Based on a True Story is a chilling novel of suspense that will leave you questioning the truth and its significance long after the final minute.

Kept listening...hoping t would improve

I am at 1 hour and 46 min left to finish. Just can't do it.

Terribly boring, no action, just a lot of information about what the writer is thinking. The point of view seems to be held by a stupid woman.
