[My Review]

The Perfect Girlfriend is a truly addictive, can’t-stop-reading psyschological thriller! It’s actually a fairly slow-moving story but Juliette is such a deliciously devious, complex character that I found myself absorbed in every step of the story. She’s a great character because she’s not all out ‘crazy’, she’s not a completely awful person, but she has some truly chilling traits which makes her such an interesting person to read about. Sometimes I felt (a little) sorry for her but most of the time I just continued reading on and on, in abject fascination, as things got more and more intense! Therefore you can easily imagine meeting someone like her in real life. In fact, you probably have and perhaps just didn’t quite twig…!
As I mentioned, the story is not all action, which I don’t say as a negative at all because the pace at which it does move along reflects the mounting tension of Juliette’s mood, mind and actions. I honestly can’t fault this story; though some parts are a bit more dramatic the character of Juliette is so convincingly odd that I just felt myself believing it all, and it kept me reading on page after page!

[Rating: 5/5]

  1. I agree, it was quite addictive!
    It’s weird, considering that i didn’t actually like it all that much. Like, i understand that Juliette was supposed to be likable in the beginning, but i just couldn’t… I really liked the writing style though, and all the places were described in such great details. I’d totally read another book by the author, but i just couldn’t get over Juliette… 😀

    • Completely agree – I didn’t like her to start with, and certainly not as the book went on either… I think it’s skilled writing that makes you want to read on regardless though! ????
