I just finished reading “My Darling” by Amanda Robson. The reason I decided to read it was the tagline which included the words “obsession” and “victim” and “darling”. While Ido agree that the story dealt with obsession and the results of obsession from the viewpoint of male and female characters, I had a hard time getting through it.
I enjoyed the set up of the four main characters and how they interacted. I enjoyed the absolute lunacy of Jade and her obsession with her husband Tomas. In enjoyed the development of the character of Emma, especially the flashback chapters. I enjoyed the result of Jade’s obsession with her husband’s so-called affairs, but towards the middle of the book, the story became too excessive and extreme, with some of the characters getting away with too much. I like to have a story with complicated characters but they need to be rootable and by the end of the story I just found them all to be quite despicable.
This book is a hard pass for me. I wish it had ended differently, with some sort of reformation or metamorphisis of the characters, but they all ended up getting away with too much which didn’t sit well for me. I guess one good thing that came out of this book was that TINDER is not a good way to find your mate.
