This was a definite psychological thriller but it got a little confusing at times. Some confusion was in a sense intentional and eventually became relevant, but I found it hard to figure out what to focus on. There were essentially only 3 main/active characters the whole time and every single additional character was poorly integrated. I am still not 100% sure on what became of these people and their significance toward the story because they were very remarkable: a detective from the past with a vendetta, and an agoraphobic neighbor that overcomes her fears and ends up being “best friends” with the main character. They just kind of come and go. The narrator was a little over the top with melodramatics; at first she really embodied the emotions, then it got a bit much for me — quite a bit of actual screaming and shrieking. But all things considered she was just expressing what the author wrote. As a whole I stayed fairly interested and entertained but it wasn’t cohesive enough for me and left a lot unfinished and unclear. I don’t know if this last sentence I’m about to write is considered a “spoiler”, so read on accordingly....but I found the ending utterly depressing and it’s always a bummer when not only does no one win, but everyone completely loses.
If you could sum up What She Doesn't Know in three words, what would they be?
...did she? no?
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
i love this author & so i was thinking of the story based on how his other books go, but this one didn't go like that. i think if i reread it without any expectation, it will appear different. it was still a great book just not a psychological thriller like the others.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Christina Traister?
no...every time she said the word "DAMN" or "DAMNED", she over enunciated "-ed" and other words that had -ed at the end of the word...very distracting
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The mind is a mysterious thing
Any additional comments?
Andrew Kaufman is an amazing author, a fellow dog lover and a decent human. he wrote this book while going through some horrific health issues. he didn't want to let down his fans. and he didn't. Thank you Andrew.
