it was amazing

The coffee cups cover on Audible and misleading blurb do this novel no favours. I have listened to the books it’s compared to it's nothing like them. Why? Because it’s FUNNY! Sardonic, really well written and satisfying. I gave it a go because it was highly recommended in an online bookgroup when I asked for something ‘unputdownable’ - and it was described as that ‘and really witty’ which appealed. Its two perspectives are not those of two friends but a patient in a psychiatric clinic awaiting trial and her therapist and it’s themes are mental illness, postpartum depression, toxic friendship, prescription drug addiction, vulnerability, authenticity - and a whole heap more. Yes, it kicks off as a story of female friendship but by the end we’ve gone on a much deeper, more complex journey than most psychological thrillers out there; this is a dark, character-driven novel, and for a debut it’s exceptional. On audio it works a treat and I highly recommend it.
