This book had it all: an evil villain that was immediately obvious from the very beginning (so obviously it felt like a trick); a narrator who couldn’t spot “obvious” if it bit her nose off and who of course gets obsessed with an obvious patsy; psychology that is completely wrong all throughout the book, including multiple references to possible “multiple personalities” which isn’t even a term used anymore; and an obligatory last-chapter “twist” to shock the reader and use the requisite “women are evil but you’d never suspect them” trope.
Tell me, folks – why did I read this one? Why did I keep listening? Genuine question, because I really don’t know.
At least it was free.
Performance: The audiobook was performed by Aimee Horne, my first experience with her narration. She actually did a pretty good job, which perhaps explains why I didn’t stop listening despite rolling my eyes so hard and so many times that I got a headache.
