Hidden by Catherine McKenzie

En Familienmitgliedern umgehen Dann reist auch noch Jeffs Bruder an der zugleich ihr Exfreund istDoch auch eine andere Frau trauert Tish Jeffs Kollegin Sie nimmt an der Beerdigung teil aber nur. In some ways Catherine McKenzie s fourth novel HIDDEN resembles a mystery It s a story about a relationship triangle between Jeff the husband whose unexpected death tears out the hearts of two women his wife Claire and Tish the co worker with whom he had an intense bond but what exactly was its natureIn HIDDEN the mystery is not who dunnit but why and even what did they do exactly One result is that like a suspenseful mystery it s a compulsive page turner McKenzie handles the three very different voices with skill and empathy and by the time we reach the conclusion we understand the whats and the whys The ending like life is messy revealing three flawed characters trying to do their best and not always succeeding and I have a feeling that some readers may be upset by certain aspects of it For me though the messiness is both true to life and true to the story I love the complexity and growth that McKenzie demonstrates with HIDDEN and I can t wait to read her next one

It took me 3 days to decide to review this book for two big reasons 1 I liked it on some level and I didn t want to be harsh 2 I honestly don t enjoy offending people and in this case authors because writing a book is fucking hard That said I just had to review this because 3 days later it still managed to irritate the hell out of me and I don t feel comfortable when I don t review books that affected me Warning THERE WILL BE SPOILERS The Bad Characters Where do I even start I hated Tish with a burning passion And no it s not because I can relate to Claire or for any other sanctimonious personal reason I hated her because she was a lying inconsiderate fuck who didn t deserve a good husband or any of the luxuries she got in the book I hated her because she had the audacity to show up at the funeral of a man she had an affair with while ditching her poor daughter for her self centered ass I hated her because she willingly fucked another woman s husbanda woman who offered her kindness when she was being whiny a woman she had met and looked in the fucking face then had an affair with her husband God the nerve I also didn t buy that the reason she didn t tell Claire the truth about the affair is because she promised to keep it a secret for Jeff She was saving her own ass because she s the kind of person who loves to eat their cake and have it I mean Why ruin the stable home she has when she can fuck up someone else s life with no conseuences It s the perfect turn out for a gutless liar Then there s Jeff Spineless asshole Nothing remotely interesting about him Claire She was the only tolerable character I didn t want to drop kick The fact that she didn t end up knowing the truth about the affair really bugged me because I could sense how much it mattered to her I don t buy that garbage Beth was spewing about how she would have been happier with her ex if she never found out about his affair WRONG It is human nature to want to be protected from the truth and maybe even reminisce about what could have been That doesn t make it reality Beth might have preferred to be oblivious but she can t speak for Claire on that issue Who is to say Beth s husband wouldn t have grown increasingly unhappy till it ended up affecting their marriage Just because the truth hurts doesn t mean we should always shield ourselves from it Characterization and Mechanics I had a minor problem with the characterization For some reason Tish and Claire s voices sounded really similar as if they were the same person They thought alike they spoke alike and even their families were fairly similar as in decent spouse and single child of about the same age It s not that big of a deal but it stood out when I had small confusion deciphering whose perspective I was reading As for the mechanics I also had issue figuring out the past from the present cause the story kinda jumped around The Good1 I really liked the writing style Aside from the minor repetition of phrases during dialogs I would absolutely love to read from this writer That said beyond my major grievances I have to wonder what uestion the author was trying to pose with this book Honestly nothing that occurred offered any insights into why people cheat The story only scraped the very surface of the concept so I felt like there was little reason for Jeff to cheat at all In retrospect I get that there isn t always a reason to why people cheat but because the author never delved into Jeff s rationalization of his behavior I just assumed it was an eye for an eye type situation where he only strayed as a revenge to Claire for kissing his brother Is this far fetched Maybe But that s how I felt at the end of the book
