Second Life by S.J. Watson, AF, 2015, Hardcover, 402p, My Rating=4
Source: library
Adult Content: Sex/Affair

The sensational new psychological thriller from the bestselling author of Before I Go To Sleep ...She loves her husband. She's obsessed by a stranger. She's a devoted mother. She's prepared to lose everything. She knows what she's doing. She's out of control. She's innocent. She's guilty as sin. She's living two lives. She might lose both ...

It appears that this author’s debut book, “Before I Go to Sleep”, was quite popular therefore high expectation was anticipated for this book. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I haven’t read BIGTS nor seen the movie version. Thus, I review this book, “Second Life”, by its own merit, without comparison to BIGTS. That said, I found this book to be a page-turner for more of the plot than intense suspense. I had several “I-knew-it” moments which I enjoyed. But I sensed that the author wanted me to have these good guess periods to trap me into a direction. That furthered the ease to turn the pages to see if he was going to tell me, “Jig is up, Jinky. You didn’t guess this ending, right?” And so he’s right, I didn’t guess the ending. Oh, what an ending! In reflex I threw the book and yelled in disgust because I do not like cliffhanger endings. But in second thought, it was the perfect ending so kudos Mr. Watson! You got yourself another fan.

What a fun fiction read!
