Behind closed doors book review
This is a scary, disturbing, twisted story, in fact, it’s going on my list of disturbing books. The story reminded me a bit of The Collector by John Fowles.
The story begins in a dinner party hosted by Jack and Grace they live in a beautiful home, he’s handsome (looks like George Clooney) she is beautiful and elegant. Jack is an attorney where he defends abused women. They look like their life is perfect but as the title suggests it’s not all what it seems.
Like how Grace cooks those extravagant meals and stays thin? Why they are metal bars on the windows? Why she never makes it for lunch with her friends? The reasons is, she’s held captive against her will by her husband (speaking of scary) it gets even scarier when Jacks tells her it’s not her he wants but her sister who has down syndrome.
This is book is brilliant got me hooked Jack was truly evil. The writing is wonderful, I really felt for Grace and her helpless situation and her fear. This story shows you that you never know what’s going on behind closed doors.
