FAVORITES OF THE YEAR
I read a lot of thrillers and this was EASILY my favorite thriller of the year.
Great character work, brilliant premise, and fantastic writing. Matthew Quick is a season pass author for me and this may be my favorite of everything he’s written.
The most enneagram four book I’ve ever read in my life and I loved following Addie’s journey through the novel and how the story resolved itself.
You will either immediately love or hate the style of multiple character vignettes used to serve the larger story, but even more than that, I loved how seamlessly the premise integrated with all the different characters.
