The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison
Jodi and Todd take turns telling the story of the final months of their crumbling marriage.
Reasons for the low rating: (1) It was NOT a psychological thriller. A thriller would mean something "thrilling" happens during the book, right?. (2) Stop comparing books to Gone Girl. As always, apples and orangutans. The book wasn’t completely horrible – I was able to get through it pretty quickly. However, it had some real lulls in the action with page upon page spent describing the most mundane activities and the big "twists and turns" at the end were very "meh". I found I didn’t care enough about these characters to give a s*^t whether they lived or died. Those are the key ingredients for a 2 star rating.
