Thrillers are pretty wonderful things when they’re done properly. This book was pretty interesting in the beginning then I just stopped caring. The main character Jules has been through some rough spots in her life that somehow lead her to the Bartholomew building in New York City.
Jules’s friend Chloe is the only honest to god level headed person in the entire book. Like what the shit? Are you for real? But she’s constantly trying to tell Jules how weird the building she’s apartment sitting for. Jules is all about that money saving her from her debts. It also doesn’t help that her and her sister were very obsessed with this building because of a book that they read when they were younger.
Jules is just one huge mess, one thing happens after another. She’s chaos of her own making. It’s a bit ridiculous if you ask me. It would take me out of the book a bit, I totally saw it as a distraction and a tad dramatic.
It’s my first time reading a book by Riley Sager, I have Final Girls just chilling out on my shelf waiting for me to read it. With my mixed emotions about her recent book I don’t think I’ll be jumping on it anytime soon.
