Book: Behind Her Eyes
Author: Sarah Pinborough
This is my 91st read for the year
This is the story of Louise. A kind, divorced woman with a young son goes out for a night at the bar and meets a nice man. What she didn't know is this man is married. And her new boss. And when she discovers this the next day, she is mortified. She and her boss decide that this will not come inbetween them and want to forget it ever happened. However - enter his wife. A chance meeting spirals she and Louise into an unlikely friendship. Soon Lousie is mixed into their secrets that are crippling their marriage. Louise doesn't know who to believe - Adele- the woman who seems to have to bend to her husband's every whim to keep him happy, or David - the husband who seems to be unraveling due to a large secret in their marriage. In the end, Louise must make a choice that might cost her everything.
This was a strange book. I did listen to it, and I have to admit it kept me entertained.....until the end. The end was so out there that I quickly lost interest. It had already started going in a weird direction about 3/4 of the way into the book, but that ending? Ugh. It went from being a thriller to magical disguised as psychology. Just ridiculous.
