The last thing he told me is a compulsively readable book. It is the type of book you can read in one day, and that is exactly what I did. The writing has an amazing flow, oh, and even though it is not my favorite type of writing, or an elaborate one, it is so devourable that I don’t care.
Something I loved about this thriller is that it is different from the kind of thrillers that are mainstream right now. We do have a husband’s secret and all, but it’s not a type of book that creates a crazy disturbingly inventive plot out of nowhere, and oh my God my husband is a serial killer and I didn’t know I married someone I knew nothing about and they are grotesque. I do enjoy these types of books, I will admit, but it felt really fresh to read one that didn’t follow this mold.
I also really loved the ending and consider it to be a very solid one and a very realistic one call, something that these types of books always tend to sometimes exaggerate or create something that you feel like wouldn’t happen in real life but this book stayed with its feet on the ground.
Even though I wasn’t particularly emotionally attached to any character, I really enjoyed the main protagonist and her stepdaughter. Both as individuals and the relationship between the two of them were really good constructed and developed.
For me, it was a compulsive read of a Sunday afternoon and I have no complaints about this book, therefore, I will be giving it a 5-star rating and looking forward to the TV show starring Julia Roberts.
