Any thoughts on Sarah Pinborough in Thing(amabrarian)s That Go Bump in the Night (September 2008)

Reviews

That was not the ending I was expecting; very well done! I totally thought I had the story figured out and I was pleasantly surprised to find out my guess was wrong.

I have read previous thrillers by Sarah Pinborough and have enjoyed them especially Behind Her Eyes. Thought I would give this one ago as it's been sitting on my kindle for some time.

This book follows two women, Marcie and Keisha. Both from very poor backgrounds and both married now to wealthy men and they are both wives number two. In true thriller form there are plenty of secrets to be uncovered.

This book was just awful. I was intrigued in the beginning and wanted to find out what happened, that is why I kept going with it. I soon became very bored and the story became tiresome and just went on and on. There was also a lot of sex, which I did find uncomfortable and I'm not a prude but it became just too much.

I enjoy books normally by Sarah Pinborough and would read more in the future but this one was not for me. I was swiping the pages very quickly towards the end just to finish it.

Thank you to the publisher via Netgalley for the book to review albeit very late.

This book is bonkers!

A friend at work gave it to me and she warned me that it was exasperating and crazy and I wouldn’t see what was coming. I started reading right away but then COVID happened and I was distracted from it but then yesterday I picked it up again and zoomed right through.

I was trying the whole time to figure out what was going on and outsmart the author and I never quite managed. As I said in my opener, the whole thing is bonkers but on a fun (and creepy) way.

Recommend as long as you suspend disbelief and are ready for a ride.
