The Fantastic Book of Everybody’s Secrets
by Sophie Hannah
on Tour November 1 – December 17, 2016
A collection of ingenious suspense stories from one of today’s most acclaimed novelists in the genre. Everybody has their secrets, and in Sophie Hannah’s fantastic stories the curtains positively twitch with them. Who, for instance, is the hooded figure hiding in the bushes outside a young man’s house? Why does the same stranger keep appearing in the background of a family’s holiday photographs? What makes a woman stand mesmerised by two children in a school playground, children she’s never met but whose names she knows well? And which secret results in a former literary festival director sorting soiled laundry in a shabby hotel? All will be revealed…but at a cost. As Sophie Hannah uncovers the dark obsessions and strange longings behind the most ordinary relationships, life will never seem quite the same again.
This was a “new to me” author so I thought I would start off with this book. Glad I did because I now want to read more by Ms. Hannah.
THE FANTASTIC BOOK OF EVERYBODY’S SECRETS is a compilation of 10 short stories.
Did you ever wish you could read someone’s mind? To see what they are really thinking. This book does just that.
Like Friendly Amid The Haters, where a very passive agressive timid woman has murderous thoughts. Another was The Nursery Bear where a woman has conflicting thoughts about a neigbor and The Tub where the reader gets a look into their inner most thoughts.
Some of the stories left the reader wanting more, other stories having the reader wondering what exactly was going on.
A quick read, that is a bit eerie, and because of that, the pages kept turning.
