Review was originally published on Through the Chapters BlogThis book was on my TBR for almost a year I expected it to be a very good psychological thriller since it was compared to the Gone Girl one of the most mind blowing books I have ever read Unfortunately I wasn t only disappointed I was frustrated and let me explain whyThis story follows two women Emma and Jane who wanted to escape the tragic events of their past in order to begin a new life in a new apartment The narration rotates between those two ladies to show us the events of past Emma and present Jane They were presented to the audience so desperate that they agree to move to an apartment at One Folgate Street with weird and ridiculous rules as tenants They were so deep into their grief and post traumatic syndrome that they were completely ok by signing a contract with 200 rules such asNo carpets No curtains No books What No pets No kids No mess I beg your pardon Who are you to tell me if I have to clean my apartment or not No sir no What if I want to keep it like that Punish me then I bet Jane the girl who lived there before would love to be punishedThose rules were not just warning bells they were warning bombs that had to make those women to run away But of course they didn t No They preferred to stay in a high tech apartment and to fall for a perfectionist a control freak and a creepy owner of this minimalistic apartment who have buried his late wife and son in this same apartment Who knows maybe this minimalistic freak was the same person who killed his family It was like I was watching a bad version of the Saw movies when the owner of One Folgate Street appeared with all those weird rules and proclaimed that a kind of game has begun And may the odds be ever in your favourThen again leaving in a super clever high technological environment was uite original and I wanted to enjoy the story but I just couldn t especially after some crucial moments and messages of the bookOne of the most distasteful moments especially after the events one of the main characters had to go thorough was Yes daddy Yes Seriously This was neither an erotic story nor a thriller It was an attempt to combine those two genres Therefore if you go into this don t expect those two componentsSecondly both women were presented as weak willed indecisive and obsessive personalities I can t stand when books present women as highly dependable individualities who need a man in order to change their lives No Women are strong self sufficient courageous and independent They are responsible for their own fate The girl before was exactly this type of book where both women preferred to be involved in an unhealthy sexual relationship just to feel what Alive A bad girl What I want to say is that they could do a load of things in order to get relieved from the unfortunate events of their past To demonstrate they could be involved in voluntary organization to help the women with the same problems There was an attempt to present one of the main characters in those patterns but I didn t find it adeuate Identically they could travel meet people learn to play piano help the planet to become sustainable Anything On the contrary they assumed it would be reliable to play with a rich handsome manipulative daddy to get rid of their memories pain and even all those traits that made them the people they wereBesides there were a lot of racism issues all over the story I just don t want to give away the plot so please forgive me if the following won t make any sense The bad boys of the story were black and working class Come on Seriously Likewise there was a controversial issue about people with a Down Syndrome and whereas they have to be born or not This was one of the main reasons which made me highly disapprove this controlling freak whose name I don t even rememberConseuently this book wasn t for me I would prefer a different ending just to be able to say

The Girl Before

Te atraída para o espaço e para o seu sedutor mas distante e enigmático criador É uma casa espectacular Elegante minimalista Tudo nela é bom gosto e serenidade Exactamente o lugar ue Jane procurava para começar do zero e ser felizDepois de se mudar Jane sabe da morte inesperada do inuilino anterior uma mulher semelhante a Jane em idade e aparência Enuanto tenta descobrir o ue realmente aconteceu Jane repete involuntariamente os mesmos padrões faz as mesmas escolhas e experimenta o mesmo terror ue A Rapariga de Ant. Update I just read that Ron Howard is going to direct the movie adaptation of this book I can t waitWow Book slump averted A thriller has not made me this excited since Megan Miranda s All the Missing Girls The story is told in alternating chapters between Emma the girl before and Jane the current tenant of a very uniue flat While both women are searching for a living situation within their budgets in expensive London their brokers both mention a possible solution One Folgate Street has been designed by an architectural genius Edward Monkford but in order to live there one must pass a series of vetting including a multi paged uestionnaire and interview This is where things just begin to get weird I fear saying much will give away the twists and turns within these pages As an aside Emma s chapters are told without any uotation marks in the dialogue While it takes some time to getting used to it is very effective in differentiating between the two women s chapters However I am completely curious as to why the author chose to use this device if anyone knows fill me inI thoroughly enjoyed how the author portrayed One Folgate the apartment itself takes on a life of its own and becomes a central character in the story There are multiple triggers within this book I feel if I mention them here they would be spoilers So Pretty much if it s a trigger you can think of it s here Reader be warnedI ve heard this author is writing under a pseudonym and I am completely curious as to who masterminded this intricate story If you need to have likable characters to enjoy a book pass on this one If you are very sensitive in nature and have some triggers pass If you want a wild roller coaster ride of ups and downs and rights and lefts pick this one up You won t be able to put it downThank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

I m tossing this one on the heaping pile of books that led me to believe they were worthy of comparisons to Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train but left me disappointed instead Is this madness ever going to end Why can t a book be left to stand on it s own merits I guess it s my fault for giving in and picking up yet another Girl book Have no fear though once again I ve landed in the minority as the reviews I ve seen have been overwhelming positive and apparently it s being made into a movie So take this review with a grain of salt It s just one reader s thoughts and feelings after allPoint blank I don t get it This whole scenario is strange Odd Completely ridiculous What sane person would agree to live in this situation Forget sane why would anybody sign up for thisMaybe I m the crazy one but there is no way I would ever agree to give up most of my belongings to move in to a minimalistic stone box of a house that comes with over 200 stipulations Restrictive and ridiculous rules Not to mention answering a bizarre uestionnaire and having my amenities shut down every time the perfectionistic control freak of a landlord feels like I need to answer yet another series of uestions All in an effort to gauge my growth or acceptance of the lifestyle the house demands I don t care how good looking or how famous of an architect the owner is I wouldn t do it The author sells the idea by garnering sympathy from the reader for the two women and the excitement of top of the line technology it s the ultimate smart house Both women have recently experienced tragedies and need a fresh start And of course the rent for this pseudo stone cell is uite cheap Hmm I wonder whyThe story unfolds through the eyes of the two women Emma the previous tenant and Jane the current tenant The story flip flops between then and now which takes place two years apart at a pretty rapid pace We get to see how their stories mirror each other and it s a little convoluted at times More than once I had to go back to the beginning of the chapter to see whose head I was in because I was kind of lost I liked the whole notion of getting caught up in a story or your past and recreating or reliving that same story over and over But that s were the likes kind of ended for meThe entire plot felt like a tangled mess and not one I particularly enjoyed unraveling Albeit there was something about it that kept me turning the pages I can t say I was wowed though not by the characters the scenario or even the twist I failed to see what so many others have found exceptional about this one THANK YOU to Random HouseBallantine Books and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review
