About this deal

I was very curious to see how things would play out at the end of the week and I was not expecting this ending! I hope my husband can't fall asleep and that his insomnia will leave him with the time necessary to reflect on his betrayal. The protagonist is a maddening character and readers are trapped in her head with her troubling thoughts. He shouted me again, but sounded strange, so I huffed and puffed and ran quickly upstairs to see what was wrong.

There’s something about being inside a deeply flawed character’s mind that I find darkly humorous and entertaining.My favorite genre of book is “narrators that have something deeply wrong with their brains but are also super relatable” and this book is exactly that. There's something too of Forbidden Notebook and even a less dense version of Lessing's classic The Golden Notebook without the external politicised setting. My husband and I had a conversation about money when we decided to move in together, and again four years later when we got married.

It was a momentous energy shift, which made us both realise what we were lucky to have – and what we stood to lose. Il est intense et il précipite dans les affres d’une passion qui ne s’éteint jamais, dans tout ce que ça peut avoir d’aliénant et de destructeur. After all, would a truly infatuated man ever let go of his wife's hand when they're sitting on the couch together? Though my husband and his mistress had gotten back together, I knew it wouldn’t help to be angry or resentful.

Panic rose in my chest as he went on to confess to a brief affair, which he insisted wasn’t “overly” physical. Obviously, their relationship is unhealthy af and she desperately needs a therapist to deal with her issues, but it's fascinating to see how she claws power for herself in a skewed dynamic that she purposefully chose. Over the course of one week in the narrator's life, we witness her obsessive, oppressive, and jealous love of her husband, 'My husband has no name; he is my husband, he belongs to me'.
