Description

But Josie seems more interested in being part of Alix’s seemingly glamorous life than she is in fixing her own, and when three people end up dead and Alix’s life is turned upside down, the evidence points to Josie—and turns the TV series into a murder mystery. I read this in day which I am deliberately not doing any more, because this was such a captivating read and a great book overall. At the same time, themes include pedophilia, alcoholism, and physical and emotional abuse, so it is not a fun read. I loved the structure of the novel, which is presented from the perspectives of Josie and Alix with transcripts of the podcast interviews (featuring Josie, Alix and several other characters) interspersed throughout the narrative.

I am a huge fan of Lisa Jewell, and this was right up there in terms of thrill, fast pace, plot, writing style and characterisation – yes but that doesn’t mean I liked the characters. Alix's life is nowhere near as shiny as it appears on the surface and Josie is just a fascinating character. Alix's inability to read the situation, her apparent blindness to several red flags in Josie’s behavior and her insensitivity to some extremely disturbing aspects of Josie’s life was off-putting.

Upon hearing Josie's life story, Alix becomes deeply affected by the traumatic experiences she endured, prompting sympathy and concern. A thrilling thriller, a chilling reminder to pick your friends carefully, and an immersive read that should keep you hooked. Having grown up in such a household, I fully understand people being broken and needing help, but I found it a little insulting to be asked to see the character as a "good person" in light of the damage done.

it didn't save the book 😬 the last 20% was very anticlimactic and some twists just ruined the book for me. With her dream home and two lovely children, Alix is happily married, yet recent issues in her marriage leave her seeking a distraction. We both ended up with similar feelings on None of This Is True, and foremost agreed that it was a compulsive, must read suspense tale. The reader knows this isn’t going to end well, but when the inevitable twist came, I had to pick my jaw off the floor…it was brilliant. she takes the most universal observation and tosses it in very lightly at the end of a funny sentence—and it truly takes my breath away.Josie reveals shocking secret after shocking secret about her dangerous past and even MORE dangerous present -- stories of grooming and abuse that haven't quite ended yet. It's a testament to the author's skill in creating a narrative that keeps readers on the edge of their seats. One of them is Alix Summers; famous podcaster promoting aspiring women who take their second changes for life to achieve bigger things. Alix Summers, a popular podcaster, is out celebrating her forty-fifth birthday when she meets her birthday twin Josie Fair.

Jewell has a way of putting the reader in a position where you don’t really know whom you can trust. This unsettling encounter unveils a darker side to Josie, revealing not only her controlling nature but also a high level of manipulation.

Alix is convinced by Josie to make her the subject and storyline of her next podcast which reaches out to thousands of women suffering domestic and psychological abuse, and women who enjoy hearing other life stories.

While reading the book, I felt like the emoji that has both hands over their eyes but with their fingers spread so that the upcoming train wreck is slightly visible. When Josie knocks her door in the middle of the night, Alix realizes things can get more out of control and nothing as it seems. What details from Erin and Roxy’s stories about their childhoods and more recent events shocked you the most? The smile fixes on Josie’s face as she watches Alix Summer and her big group of friends, her red-haired husband with his arm draped loosely across the back of her chair, large platters of meats and breads being brought to their table and placed in front of them as if conjured out of thin air, the sound of them, the noise of them, the way they fill every inch of the space with their voices and their arms and their hands and their words. Lisa Jewell has been around the scene for a while now: this is her ELEVENTH thriller after making the transition from romance novels.

I adored being inside Josie’s head, and it wasn’t until I got to the very end that I realized that her head was actually broken.
