Behind Her Eyes – Sarah Pinborough


This story by Sarah Pinborough will have you guessing until the very last page. After that, a little bit of rereading may be necessary to fully understand how your mind has just been blown. This is probably one of my favorite Book of the Month Club selections.

What seems like a regular business book about infidelity eventually becomes flipped upside down. And then punched in the face. David is a handsome doctor. He is married to Adele; she is beautiful beyond belief and seemingly a bit on the unstable side. The duo moves to London where David finds solace in the arms of a coworker, a single mother named Louise. The story becomes infinitely more interesting when Louise also befriends Adele.

The writing is superb, and the ending really did come as a complete surprise. That doesn’t happen very often, so I enjoy that feeling when I am lucky enough to experience it. This review is super short for a reason; I am not a spoiler!
