Description

My inspiration for this book was taken much more from TV documentaries such as Abducted in Plain Sight, Don’t F**k With Cats, The Tinder Swindler, etc.

The softly spoken, fifty-something babysitter left half an hour ago and the house is tidy, the dishwasher hums, the cat is pawing its way meaningfully across the long sofa toward Alix, already purring before Alix’s hand has even found her fur. Michaelides seems also to be dipping into the world of Edgar Allan Poe, offering an unreliable narrator who feels more like a literary exercise. Two girls walk into a pub… Alix Summers… glitz and glamour… podcaster… she is quite the talk of the town… girl is 45🥳… and then… there is Josie… also in the pub… also turning 45….

A very good concept which is executed well, plus an unpredictable plot that makes you think twice about everything. Jewell devotees who love the author’s signature twisted characters and acidic cultural commentary—here focused on the travails of internet celebrity—will be satisfied by this pitch-black outing and its shocking climax, but readers with a lower tolerance for nastiness should turn elsewhere.

We learn about Kate’s possibly stalling career and Leo’s plan to apply to acting schools against his mother’s wishes. I’m speechless after reading this bone chilling, dark, twisty, mind bending thriller which is one of the best works of Lisa Jewel.

A few days later, Alix and Josie bump into each other again, this time outside Alix’s children’s school. This unsettling encounter unveils a darker side to Josie, revealing not only her controlling nature but also a high level of manipulation. The reason I am not giving None of This Is True five stars, which I thought I would for 95% of the book, is that I feel conflicted about the ending. But slowly Alix starts to realise that Josie has been hiding some very dark secrets, and before she knows it Josie has inveigled her way into Alix’s life — and into her home. The things that Josie begins to share are QUITE shocking, and like an accident you can’t look away from, Alix cannot stop listening.

but at the same time, this mysterious and quirky woman slowly worms her way further into Alix's life. The suggested questions are intended to help your reading group find new and interesting angles and topics for your discussion.I genuinely liked the story, and I think Jewell does a great job keeping the reader pulled into the story.

Josie is adamant to involve in Alix’s life, creating coincidences to bump into her around her children’s schoolyard. Maybe it is because I have certain expectations from Jewell at this point, and the ending here didn't fit with them. She loves that Nathan thinks she’s pretty, but she also wishes that Nathan could see the beauty in less conventionally attractive women too.Alix is a successful journalist, and Josie convinces Alix that her story is worth telling: Josie met her husband when she was 13 and he was 40.
