“Behind Her Eyes” A Novel by Sarah Pinborough
Review by Linda Zagon
I would like to thank Flatiron Books for an Advanced Reading Edition of “Behind
Her Eyes” by Sarah Pinborough.
OMG!!! I can’t believe the ending of this book! I never guessed or saw this coming!! Needless to say, the author had me spellbound. I could not put this book down. Except for one bathroom run, and one necessary( 20 ounces of) coffee break, I read through this in the two sittings.
The genre of this book is mystery and thriller. In a slight way it does remind me of “Behind Closed Doors” by B.A.Paris. (and not because of the title “Behind”)
Both books do discuss what a marriage should or should not be and secrets.
I realize now after reading “Behind Her Eyes”, the author leaves us some very subtle delicate clues. There are many twists and turns. There are hidden truths and secrets and betrayals.
I find that the author has built up her characters’ descriptions, dealing with their flaws and strengths. Sarah Pinborough writes about a Psychiatrist, his gorgeous wife, and the part time secretary. One can see each strength and weakness, and how they relate.
I certainly do not want to give away any spoilers, but I did enjoy this book and would highly recommend it. I really did not want to go to sleep .(until I was finished of course).
