Book Rating (out of 5):
Sooooo, I know I’m in the minority here. I’ve made peace with that as I have with a lot of other popular books that I’ve despised. I’m okay with my unpopular opinion. It’s just that…
But for me, this book was just so so so so so so slow and so so so so so boring. The chapters are short but somehow this book still seems to drag on for eternity.
Anna is funny-ish at first. A whole lot of crazy, but she seems at peace with her crazy. I can identify. But when things start happening and she’s just this sad sack basket case that no one wants to believe, well, that’s when she lost me. I mean as a reader, I believed her, but considering her behavior, I can absolutely 100% understand why no one else would. And then when you discover her back story and what’s really going on, I mean like…you’re on your own, sister. Horrible person alert!
I won’t lie – about halfway through, I started skimming like a champ and didn’t stop until the end. Despite everything, I’ll admit that I was still curious about what happened to this mystery woman.
But for once, I’m not going to blame the book. I’m going to blame myself. Frankly, I should have known better. When the premise sounds interesting, but then people are comparing the book to Girl on a Train (also bored me to death until the end) and The Woman in Cabin 10 (hardcore DNF), then I should have known better and never picked it.
My bad, ya’ll. My…freakin’…bad.
