Book Review Wednesday: The Widow

I've been hearing a lot about this book "The Widow" being similar to "Gone Girl" and those types of books. If you've ever read my blog before, you know that I love a good suspenseful, thrilling novel. I needed something good to listen to on Audible after listening to all the Harry Potter books, and I thought this novel was a good place to start.

Well, it was thrilling and very interesting. It was also really messed up.



Nothing will ever beat "Pretty Girls" in the effed up category but this was kind of close. It was a little slow to start and a little difficult to follow (this may be a book that is actually easier to read) but it was good.

It takes place in England, and Jeannie is now a widow. She saw her husband get hit by a bus, and what you soon find out, is that her husband had been accused of kidnapping a little girl.

The novel follows Jean's life before, during, and after the accusation while also showing you many different perspectives, different sides of the story, and it helps you put the pieces together.

The book was intense at times, and it wasn't that difficult to figure out the ending, but there were many twists and turns throughout the book. What threw me off the most was the main character Jean, and how unstable she seemed throughout the book. It was a little alarmingly at how she acted.

The Widow was a great book and right up there with Gone Girl, Luckiest Girl Alive, and The Girl on the Train. It will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time.

If you can handle a little bit of suspense, and a kidnapping story, then you'd really enjoy this!
