The domestic psychological thriller, THE WIFE was good, but it wasn't great. It could be me. Lately there are so many books that seem to be trying to follow the formula that made GONE GIRL a seller. GONE GIRL was original. THE WIFE though well written was written, doesn't feel fresh or break any new ground in this crowded genre.
THE WIFE has a few surprises, because if you read type of "twisty" psychological thrillers, you know whats coming. Readers want the unexpected. When PRESUMED INNOCENT and GONE GIRL were written, they were special because they were original and unexpected. THE WIFE was a good imitation, but still disappointingly similar to too many other books.
I did like the main character, who is THE WIFE.
