My review:

So this book…

I was very intrigued at first. The first half of the book was wonderful – what would it be like to share your husband with two other wives? Thursday (I can’t believe that was her real name in the end) was happy with their arrangement, but then her curiosity got the better of her and she grew discontent. But then the “psychological thriller” part of the book takes over. Seriously, it’s like the same story told as two different genres mashed together. What is the truth about Seth and his wives? Is Thursday a reliable narrator?

In the end, it was an entertaining read, if a bit of a mindf***. I’m still not 100% clear on who the actual villain was in the situation, but pretty certain there are several. But the ending seemed a bit too convenient – give the main character an undefined mental illness, change the narrative of all the information we’ve been given to exist within that narrative, et voila, c’est finit. The end… sort of. Thursday goes from a likable, sympathetic character to something totally different, and the way the book ends is so out of character from the person we got to know throughout the entire book.

But I didn’t hate it. The book did it’s job, it was entertaining and twisty and a good way to spend a post-holiday afternoon.
