This was another book that I discovered by accident when buying a lot of books. I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney is a book about an actress with a mysterious past. It took me a while to get into but the twists kept me reading and wondering!
Alice Feeney is known for her debut novel Sometimes I Lie and a former BBC journalist. Sometimes I Lie has been translated into over twenty languages, and is being made into a TV series by Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Bros starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.
“l Know Who You Are is the brilliant tale of two stories. One is about Aimee Sinclair—well-known actress on the verge of being full-on famous. If you saw her, you’d think you knew her. One day towards the near-end of her shoot on her latest film, Aimee comes home from filming to find her husband’s cell phone and wallet on the dining room table. He never goes anywhere without them. But he’s nowhere to be found. She’s not too concerned—they had a huge fight the night before. They both said things they didn’t mean. He might have done things he didn’t mean, things she can’t forget. Even though she has a history of supposedly forgetting. After all, she’s a very good actress.
The next morning she goes for her morning run and then goes to her favorite coffee shop. But her card is denied. When she calls the bank they say her account has been emptied of $10,000. She immediately suspects her husband. But they say no, it was Aimee herself who closed out the account. And thus begins a bizarre rabbit hole into which Aimee finds herself falling where nothing is at it seems.
Alternating with Aimee’s story is that of a little girl who wandered away from home. We always tell our kids not to talk to strangers or bad things will happen. Well, bad things happen.
In I Know Who You Are, Alice Feeney proves that she is a master at brilliantly complicated plots and twists after twists.”Goodreads
What I Liked
The twists in this book were amazing and unexpected. They were different than anything I’ve read so far. It was a really unique story and the ending was worth any lull I ever felt. I’m honestly not sure why it didn’t get a better rating on Goodreas.
What I Didn’t Like
I didn’t really like any of the characters. I found them all very interesting but I didn’t feel that connection to them. There was something about each one that made me dislike them. Also, as I already mentioned, I did have a tough time getting into the story at first. There are also a few things that don’t make too much sense. But I can’t get too much into that because it would be a spoiler.
I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney isn’t my favorite book but it was worth getting through the less exciting parts to get to the twists. I definitely recommend this book for anyone who likes a good thriller. You can get a copy of this book on Amazon using this link.
