Finished A Separation by Katie Kitamura. I received a copy for review.
A young woman and her older husband have separated. No one else knows (well, except for the man she is now seeing). When her mother-in-law calls to see why Christopher hasn’t returned her calls and why is he in Greece anyway, she decides to go and tell him she wants a divorce. And then he turns up missing there, too.
This was compared to Gone Girl, and that is incredibly inaccurate. (Yes, there’s a missing person but there’s also a level of suspense. I was not at all captivated by this as I was Gone Girl. On the plus side, the characters are all much nicer, so if you need that, definitely opt for this. Unless you also need resolution. There are a lot of unanswered questions here (which I like; it seemed very realistic).
A Separation is very well-written but it left me cold.
