Josh è un professore di scuola superiore che non nutre troppe ambizioni. Hannah, sua moglie, è una giornalista freelance che lavora da casa quando riesce, senza mai guadagnare abbastanza, ma d'altra parte è anche molto presa dai suoi doveri materni. La brillantissima Sasha è la migliore amica di Hannah, come Dan, marito di Sasha, lo è di Josh. Entrambe le coppie hanno bimbe in età prescolare e si frequentano da anni: pranzi, cene, vacanze, shopping, partite di pallone, scherzi e chiacchiere. Sembra che questo possa continuare per sempre, ma poi Dan annuncia che non è più innamorato di Sasha e che vuole separarsi. All'improvviso tutto cambia, tutto implode. Invidia, gelosia, arroganza, vendetta, tradimento e lealtà: di fronte a questa schiera di sentimenti, possono gli amici rimanere neutrali? Come si fa a capire chi sta mentendo? Come fare a districarsi dal fallimento di una coppia senza perdere l'amicizia di entrambi i componenti? Da dove passa la linea tra lealtà, affetto, supporto e tradimento? Annaspando mentre cercano di decidere con chi, schierarsi, Hannah e Josh quasi distruggono se stessi, come se la separazione fosse una malattia infettiva.

After reading Dying for Christmas and loving it, I was so pleased when I won a paperback copy of The Broken from the author, via THE book Club last month. The Broken is a great psychological thriller about marriage and friendship, and what happens when things start to go wrong. One couple are separat Leggi tutto
I wanted to enjoy this one more than I did. Honestly, I tried really hard, but I could not bring myself to give it more than three stars. Okay, let me make things clear, I was expecting a bit more of a thriller than I was given. It is my mistake which left me disappointed. Nevertheless, the story was Leggi tutto
As soon as I spotted Tamar Cohen’s new book on Netgalley, I knew I wanted to read it! Tamar is a very popular author, who writes Chick Lit Noir (I think that’s what they’re calling it these days), but her books could also probably land in the psychological thriller category (I think!). I haven’t rea Leggi tutto

*wishing i just DNF-ed this in the beginning and didn't suffer for nothing* This is an exact example of books I don’t like: married couples, drama, annoying characters that think they have the right to act the way they act towards others, things mentioned and then never resolved. All in all, I do
All I can say is that I'm so glad that book is done! It took me forever to read, and I didn't really like it at all. All four of the main characters are so awful that the only 'psychological thrills' that one could ever wish upon any of them is to have their one-dimensional heads smashed together un Leggi tutto
