The Wives
The Wives: A Novel | Tarryn Fisher
Imagine that your husband has two other wives. Youve never met the other wives. None of you know each other, and because of this unconventional arrangement, you can see your husband only one day a week. But you love him so much you dont care. Or at least thats what youve told yourself. But one day, while youre doing laundry, you find a scrap of paper in his pocketan appointment reminder for a woman named Hannah, and you just know its another of the wives. You thought you were fine with your arrangement, but you cant help yourself: you track her down, and, under false pretenses, you strike up a friendship. Hannah has no idea who you really are. Then, Hannah starts showing up to your coffee dates with telltale bruises, and you realize shes being abused by her husband. Who, of course, is also your husband. But youve never known him to be violent, ever. Who exactly is your husband, and how far would you go to find the truth? Would you risk your own life? And who is his mysterious third wife?

What a rollercoaster! Very well done. The absolute definition of an unreliable narrator. I was left guessing until the very last.

quote

The Wives: A Novel | Tarryn Fisher

We busy ourselves trying not to be lonely, trying to find purpose in careers, and lovers, and children, but at any moment, those things we work so hard to possess could be taken from us. I feel better knowing I‘m not alone, that the whole world is as fragile and lonely as I am.

Fighting was the sandpaper that smoothed out the first years of a relationship. Sure, there was still plenty of lifelong grit after that, but the fighting stripped everything down, let the other person know what was important to you.

This was my first book club read of the year and holy crow y'all, it blew my mind. I was CONVINCED I knew what was happening and then BAM. I knew NOTHING. SO GOOD.

And the last paragraph has me shook. If you're the type who reads the last page first, DON'T DO IT.

I was hesitant to jump into this because I really hated ‘Bad Mommy‘ but my book club decided that we should try to give Tarryn Fisher another try. Unexpectedly, I ended up really enjoying this one. I was dying to know what was happening and was hooked until the very end. I‘m glad I gave her another try!

One of my New Year‘s resolutions is to read as many #botm books as I can (I‘m so behind!). I just had to start with The Wives, since I‘ve been hearing so much about it. I‘m left with very mixed feelings. On one hand, it grabbed me from the first chapter and I just had to finish it before I went to bed last night — unputdownable would be an appropriate word! On the other hand, I was not a fan of the ending AT ALL. I woke up several times last ⬇️

JenlovesJT47 Night, and this would be the first thing I‘d think of (and think to myself, wow I‘m really disappointed in the ending!). Maybe it‘s just me, as plenty of people seem to love this. I think it‘s still worth reading, I‘m just a tad disappointed. 3⭐️ 2w
That-Bookish-Hiker The ending disappointed me too and she could have done so much more than that. but overall I enjoy her books and characters hers. 2w
JenlovesJT47 @That-Bookish-Hiker Right? I thought it would have been a much better story and more interesting for her NOT to end up just being crazy. Oh well! 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2w

I loved the way that Tarryn Fisher portrayed the narrator by making the reader question her reliability. Definitely a top suspense read.

I have an unhealthy obsession with Tarryn Fisher and Colleen Hoover‘s friendship, not to mention their writing styles. The Wives so far has been excellent, I can‘t wait to see the twists and turns this book takes me on!

Wow, it has been a bit since I finished a book in one day due to obsessive binge reading. For that reason, I'm rating it a solid 4 stars even though I was disappointed by the predictable twist & was waiting for another twist to take it in another direction at the last minute. The last 50% wasn't as unique as the first half, plus the story ends so abruptly leaving you with unanswered questions, but your mind will be spinning after it's over.

Well, that was quick and a little weird but enjoyable in a “someone is crazy” sort of way. #24B42020 #wintergames #TeamNutcracker (2.5 hours for the day so far, off to the movies but will update my total tonight.)

Bookworm54 Is this a tbr or impulse read? 3w
peaknit @Bookworm54 I‘d say impulse, it was next to my bed so I went for it...but I own it from #botm so does that actually make it a tbr? 🤔 3w
Bookworm54 I think they decided if you were planning to read in Dec it‘s a tbr no matter when you bought it. And if you weren‘t it‘s impulse. So probably impulse :) 3w

While this is a compelling, interesting, page-turning thriller, I cannot give this novel more than 3 stars in good conscious. As a practicer of ethical non-monogamy, villanizing a polyamorous relationship in the way that Fisher does is unacceptable to me.

I will leave a link in the comments for any interested in my extended opinion, as I am not trying to preach.
