The Broken

For a younger modelBest friends don't tell lies They don't take up residence on your couch for weeks They don't call lawyers They don't m. I wanted to enjoy this one than I did Honestly I tried really hard but I could not bring myself to give it than three starsOkay let me make things clear I was expecting a bit of a thriller than I was given It is my mistake which left me disappointed Nevertheless the story was still nowhere near what I expected even when I shifted my perspective to take into account my faulty thinkingThe story follows the breakdown of a marriage and how this impacts upon the people around them Rather than following the two going through the breakup however we follow their best friends who are dragged down in the process Life events spiral out of control with events slowly growing troubling Until the rather anticlimactic ending that is I admit the twist at the end was interesting but I knew something was coming as details were not adding up throughout In retrospect I should have made the jump but the focus upon the potential for another crumbling marriage left me unwilling to look that deep into what was before meI think what made matters even harder for me was the fact that I disliked all of the characters Rather than being introduced to the characters growing to enjoy them we are thrown headfirst into the drama Whilst I love drama I would have liked to get to know the characters a little bit first Maybe then I wouldn t have hated them so much and maybe then I would have cared about where things were goingOverall not uite my usual kind of read and not at all what I expectedAs a final note I would like to thank NetGalley for allowing me the chance to read this
