Genre: Thriller. Suspense.
An original and tense read
After reading The Wife Between Us last year I knew I had to get my hands on An Anonymous Girl. Why? Because these two authors working together are a powerhouse. But I will also admit that even though I knew I needed this book I also felt a bit of hesitation because I didn't know if this one would be able to top the former. I mean TWBU blew me away! It had a massive twist that truly boggled my mind and had me jumping for joy simply because it surprised me so much. This one, it doesn't have a massive twist. It's more of a slow burning, edge of your seat thriller that keeps you puzzled from beginning to end. There were times I felt truly exasperated and wanted to go in and slap a few characters for their stupidity. I wanted to ask them why they were so naive! But then I really thought about it in terms of what the story was subtly telling and I gained an enormous understanding of it. You can read my spoiler if you want to know what I'm talking about (view spoiler)
Anyway, I won't go into the plot of the story as it may giveaway the core elements and meaning behind it but I will say that it is a clever and tense read that had me utterly glued to the pages. This book certainly stands apart from other thrillers out there and I think the authors did a wonderful job in researching the job behind Dr. Lydia. I myself have a masters degree in psychology and can tell that they did the work they needed to make this seem as realistic as possible.
If you are looking for a taught and edgy read for the new year, I very much recommend reading An Anonymous Girl. It's a brilliant novel that is bound to make you question your own morals.
