Jane and Marnie have always been more than best friends. Since the days of school, through university and into adulthood they have remained close and their lives interwoven. The intensity of this relationship is made clear. Into this there were jealousies, obsessions and the way jane needed her friend.
Jane is narrating the story and it is clear that she is the dark, temperamental one whilst Marnie is the bubbly, effervescent one. The complexity of the relationship as the pair find men and marry with tragedy right from the beginning.
I found the author’s writing first class as she managed to create a tone of menacing foreboding as the lies were revealed gradually. It was fast-paced and wove a destructive path through the numerous twists and turns.
Thoroughly gripping read. Highly recommended.
