What I learned from this book: This book taught me a lot about women in general.
Description of the book: You’ve never met the other wives. None of you know each other, you see your husband only one day a week. Thursday. But you don’t care, you love him that much. Or at least that’s what you’ve told yourself…
And then, one day it all changes.
You thought you were fine with this, with only having a fraction of a husband. But you can’t help yourself, you start to dig. You begin tracking them down, the other days… Who is Monday and why does she have bruises on her arms? Is she being abused? By who? Her husband? Your husband?
What else is he keeping from you? And who is he, really?
How this book made me feel: I was very intrigued by the blurb of this novel because I can not imagine how someone can share their husband, that is why I could not wait to dig in… And WOW! It is an amazing book, filled with mind games and surprises!
The protagonist in this book is Thursday (yes, it is her name), and the whole story is told from her perspective. I was very mesmerized with Thursday, she is a very strange character, and her personality made me annoyed sometimes, with all her excuses and willingness to please a man she is obsessed with. I loved her, but she drove me mad at the same time, AND I LOVED IT! 😀 I really liked the choice of the characters in this book, they all are very different and interesting personalities.
The narrative of this novel is unbelievably well thought through and delivered. It had everything I like in the good psychological thriller, it is extremely deceptive and mind-blowing with all the twists and turns, amazingly built up suspense and its constantly changing events, that left me pleasantly confused and even more determined to find out “What the hell is going on here?” (that was the question I was asking myself over and over again 🙂 ). The topics discussed in this book were mental health issues, miscarriages, polygamy, men pleasing behaviour, obsession, social seclusion, and many more.
I loved the writing style of this book, the author is a master of deception and I loved everything about this book, from the language used, to the overall delivery of this story. The chapters are pretty short, and this book is so fast-paced, the pages just flew by for me. I loved the ending of this book too, I think it rounded the story brilliantly.
So, to conclude, it is an amazing psychological thriller, filled with beautifully crafted, complex characters, and the narrative that is filled with illusion, amazing twists and constant suspense. I really loved the writing style, and the other books by this author are already on my wish list. 🙂 I would strongly recommend this book to all thriller lovers because Tarryn Fisher is a very pleasant discovery for me, and she has bagged herself a new fan here. Do give this book a go, and I hope you will love it as much as I did. Enjoy! 🙂
Thank You for Your time! ❤
About the author: Tarryn Fisher would like to write a novel that every, single person loves, but not even J.K. Rowling could do that. Instead, she tries to write stories that pull on people’s emotions. She believes that sadness is the most powerful emotion, and swirled with regret the two become a dominating force. She loves villains. Three of her favourites are Mother Gothel, Gaston and the Evil Queen who all suffered from a pretty wicked case of vanity (like me). She likes to make these personality types the centre of her stories. She loves rain, Coke, Starbucks and sarcasm. She hates bad adjectives and the word “smoulder”.
