None of This is True

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I just finished reading “None of This is True”, by Lisa Jewell. Thanks to NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for the advanced copy in return for an honest review.
So this is me being honest…OHMIGOD! I LOVED this book. It was soooo good and can’t even believe how the author made up this story in her head and wrote it perfectly in such a fascinating way, interweaving interesting characters with so many different quirks and issues that it was making my head spin. It is not the type of book that you can read in one sitting because there was so much to deal with and so much alarming and shocking behaviour..that I c ould only read a few chapters at a time…but I always went back because I wanted to know what would happen next.
The story is about two “birthday twins”, both 45, both with families. One (Josie) was married very young and has many secrets she wants to share. And the other (Alix) a young mother who has done well in life as a podcaster but has struggles as well (especially with her husband). After the two meet at a bar where they are celebrating their birthdays, Josie comes up with an idea for Alix to do a podcast about her and her journey towards changing her life. What follows is an explosive journey towards the truth and inside the mind of a clearly imbalanced woman and her quest to change her life.
What I liked about the book…EVERYTHING! It was so well-written and well paced and the characters were genuine and elusive and full of mystery. I especially loved the characters of Josie’s two girls. Their stories were slowly rvealed but not until the very end of the novel, which was so perfect. I also loved the character of ALix and the way her struggles as a wife and mother where written. The character of Josie left me unsettled with a sense of dread. The author created such a fascinating character that I will not soon forget.
There was nothing I didn’t like, except some of the things that happened to the characters, but to say anymore would be to spoil the story.
All I will say is you must read this book. I think this is the best one yet by this author. Absolutely fabulous.
Happy Reading!
