Is there revenge you could want bad enough to tear up and change your whole life in a day? There were some occurrences in this book like changing your appearance so much that someone who knew you well 18 years ago would never recognize you, like getting an assistant’s job immediately with the exact person you want to pay back. It was so hard to believe and seemed so very dramatic and then I remembered “oh yeah, this is fiction”. And I think that’s exactly how you have to view this book. It has everything you want in an easy to read psychological piece, but it isn’t a thriller or at least it wasn’t for me.

There is some good narrative writing in this story, and I liked the sarcastic tone used by the author now and then. All of the character definition is good. In fact, sometimes narrative writing between one character voice and another can really be confusing. It never happened here. I’m not sure if it was good character definition or good narrative writing. Maybe it’s both.

So, what I read was enjoyable. While I wanted neither character to end up sad, I think I wanted a bigger finale. It just seemed that the fizzle went flat before the end came. Maybe that’s misinterpretation on my part.
