I shouldn’t have even bothered to put this up here. I don’t usually finish books as stupid as this one and I can’t say as I actually read the whole thing. The reason is that I slept through close to half of it and when I woke up decided to listen to the ending because I was curious. That doesn’t count as really reading a book but I did read the first 3 hours and the last hour or so – that’s about half of it.

***Massive Spoiler Alert ***
The basics are that the 1st person protagonist has an affair with a married man and gets pregnant. The wife, who is unable to have kids, finds out. The wife leaves him and our protagonist person loses her baby and is then unable to have children. So the man, who has his own set of lies marries someone else but he can’t quite get rid of the mistress. There’s a lot of lying and story-telling – mostly by the protagonist to herself and on top of that she’s paranoid. Finally, at the end, there’s a shooting (no one dies), a trial and a mental hospital.
The narrator is totally unreliable and takes denial to a whole new level. When her troubles mount she creates an alternative reality going so far as creating or destroying physical evidence to prove it. At the end she’s still not well and creates more damage. Okay fine. Don’t bother.
