The Wives – Tarryn Fisher

3rd Febraury 2020


You’ve never met the other wives. None of you know each other, you see your husband only one day a week. Thursday. But you don’t care, you love him that much. Or at least that’s what you’ve told yourself…

And then, one day it all changes.

You thought you were fine with this, with only having a fraction of a husband. But you can’t help yourself, you start to dig. Begin tracking them down, the other days… Who is Monday and why does she have bruises on her arms? Is she being abused? By who? Her husband? Your husband?

What else is he keeping from you?

And who is he, really?


Three wives. One man. You know can work out where this is going… oh no you can’t!

I am not sure if I just listened to an audiobook or had some weird trippy high! Seriously what a ride, this book drew me in and then threw me every which way. I like to think I am quite good at working out where a story is going but at no point during this book could I tell you, with any degree of certainly, where this was going.

This definitely could have been an episode of desperate house wives (you like one of the last seasons when everyone was bonkers) and the narrators voice even reminded me of a character from the show.

Speaking of the narrator, she was good but for me I found her to be too slow and drawn out so needed to speed up to 2.0 speed but the actual content was good and flowed really well, letting you get comfy with an idea of where it was going before pulling the rug from under your feet.

This is going up there as one of my top psychological thrillers of all time, it’s just absolutely mental!
