I have GOT TO STOP buying into this irritating rash of 'clever modern thrillers with a twist' a'la 'Gone Girl'. They are not clever and not thrilling. The heroine of Her Every Fear makes some astonishingly stupid choices while writer Swanson tries unsuccessfully to support the pathology behind those choices.
Narrator Eva Kaminsky's superb style and perfect pacing propelled me through what - in other hands- might easily have been a 'return unread'.
I'm going back to Tey, Hightower, Levin, Vine, Rendell; writers who knew how to twist the knife (and the plot).

I wasn't expecting anything as good as 'The Kind Worth Killing' (One of the best books I ever listened to) but I still felt like this book didn't meet the expectations I had. The book had promise for awhile - But I feel like there is an ingredient missing. Like someone left the salt out of the stew. Writing from a vantage point of 3 or 4 characters perspective can be okay - But I think the last part of the book over did it. By the end - I literally forwarded the audio book through the last bit of regurgitation to find out what happened. I thought the ending could have been better - Darker. I have an idea how the book should have ended in my opinion - But But who am I - Right?
For what its worth, J
