Both of You is quite a hard novel to review without giving too much away, but I'll do my best ... I'm a little of practice now. DC Clements interviews the husbands that reported their wives missing. She’s suspicious of both husbands’ involvements. Is the narrative that its always the husband true? What clues are left behind? Is there something that they aren’t telling her? Connect the dots and the truth will come home to roost. There were some eye-roll inducing moments like grouping video games and fascism together as the same... ???? Also homegirl was in the wrong and it felt like the author was tryna do some extreme mental gymnastics to make this the patriarchy's fault even though it wasn't. And ya'll know I'm not out here rallying for men in books, but this wasn't the time to go for the jugular 😂DCI Clements is assigned to both cases, people go missing all the time but are these two women’s disappearances connected. Can DCI Clements solve the case and find the two women alive.
But I will say again the use of words, her ability to weave them together and talk to you and entice you with her writing prowess make all the minuses of this book acceptable and it it still for me Alison doesn’t want to believe him but the evidence begins to corroborate his story. If that wasn’t bad enough, the man tells Allison that his wife died of cancer and that Katherine might have inherited it. I listened to the book and was thrilled with the narrator! She managed so many speech patterns and accents I often though there was more than one performer. As for the mystery, I guessed most of it incorrectly but at least the culprit was someone I suspected. That ending…well, it left me speechless. Get ready for a journey you won’t want to interrupt and some clever twists. I couldn’t put the book down because I just had to know whodunit.Adele Parks’ new book Woman Last Seen is fast paced with an intriguingly different plot and incredible twists.
