"Tarryn Fisher has me hooked "
"The Wives is a book that is understandably thriving for the same reason Gone Girl is. You get an action-packed thriller with feminist overtones (undertones being too light a word.) It delivers twists and turns a-plenty and is centered around strong characters and themes. I put this on my TBR after a glowing review I heard of it on YouTube, it lived up to expectations. It's a genre of book I can only read once in a while. But I feel I get a lot emotionally and socially when I read books with worldviews very different than what I experience. I know this book is packaged as a thriller, but I found the social commentary to be what I was paying attention to. Fisher says in a Q&A listed in the back of the book that this was purposely made to be an allegory for the force-feeding of women into patriarchy. I got that vibe while reading, this is an angry book. A book that's a combination of stories of women's suffering and how much it takes to push someone over the edge. It also got me thinking yet again of craziness, the fragility of the human mind, and how easy it is to become a new person. Was the ending necessary? I don't know, I don't hate it. I just didn't get why it was relevant. Nailed the shock factor for me, after the last couple of paragraphs I had a good laugh. I just wasn't expecting it. "
