Thoughts:

My wife bought this book, I think – and the premise sounded interesting so I picked it up. At first I thought I wouldn’t be interested, but soon enough I found Goodnight Beautiful by Aimee Molloy engaging, and an easy read as well.

The plot, while not complex, is everything in the book. At first I thought I missed a thing or too because every chapter has some sort of twist, distraction, or misdirection. It took me a few chapters to realize that I’m actually not missing anything and that being a bit confused is part of the experience. The author managed to keep me guessing, making assumptions which turned out to be wrong and kept me reading.

Ms. Molloy refers to Stephen King’s Misery , and her story is a bit similar (but not really). She gives credit where credit is do, embracing King’s story and refers to it freely.

The purposefully confusing narrative eventually comes to an end, but the schtick has gotten old way before that. It was still a good read, and the book kept me guessing for most of the narrative.

What I noticed is that Ms. Molloy managed to confuse me when it comes to the narrators of several of the chapters. For the majority of the book, an unreliable female narrates the book.

It was not a disturbing book by any means, it’s filled with suspense and mystery while has a cozy air to it. The ending seemed to be rushed and neat, however. This book which had me going for the majority of it, ended with a predictable whisper – but it was still well worth my reading time.

Synopsis:

Sam Staller and Annie Potter live New York City to Sam’s hometown in upstate NY. Sam starts a successful therapist practice, while Annie spends much of her time alone.

Every word ins Sam’s sessions, however, can be heard upstairs through a vent in the house itself. His patient’s secrets are no longer secrets. And then Sam disappears.
