Book: None of This is True
Author: Lisa Jewell
This is my 82nd read for the year
This is the story of Josie and Alix. Both celebrating their 45th birthday in the same restaurant at the same time. They found out that they were born on the same day in the same hospital. Josie finds out that Alix does podcast about the lives of women, and decides their "Birthday Twin" situation would make a great podcast series. Josie said she would like to tell Alix her story, and when she starts to reveal the details of her life, Alix is shocked. Alix is unsettled about Josie's story, but knows that listeners would be intrigued, so they continue. Soon Josie is incorporating herself more and more into Alix's life. And when tragedy strikes, the women's lives take a dark turn. Alix soon finds that Josie is not who she says she is.
This was a pretty good book. I could not figure out where this was going. It was clear pretty early on that something was wrong with the Josie character, but what we couldn't quite put our finger on. It takes almost to the very end for the story to piece itself together. Has a nice flow and kept me interested enough to see where it ended up. The ending was satisfactory. This is my first book from this author, so I might try out another in the future.
