Description

The gripping new psychological thriller from the best-selling author of After Anna and Killing Kate.

Imitation is the most terrifying form of flattery....

Which Sarah Havenant is you?

When an old friend gets in touch, Sarah Havenant discovers that there are two Facebook profiles in her name. One is hers. The other she has never seen.

But everything in it is accurate. Photos of her friends, her husband, her kids. Photos from the day before. Photos of her new kitchen. Photos taken inside her house.

And this is just the beginning. Because whoever has set up the second profile has been waiting for Sarah to find it. And now that she has, her life will no longer be her own....

Great intense story with lots of surprises!

What did you like best about this story?

What I liked best was trying to guess the villain and also trying to figure out why someone was doing this to Sarah. Also I loved how everything was accounted for and not left me hanging like other books do sometimes. All the clues are there - you just have to pay attention to the right ones!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I could feel Sarah's pain and confusion, and then later desperation! I was kinda disappointed in her husband Ben's reaction and treatment though - I would expect better from my own husband for sure!

Any additional comments?

Overall a great book - and the ending was great!

very weak

First of all.. The Maine accent is a very unique accent so why they chose a British narrator who had the worst American accents I've ever heard is beyond me. Her high pitch tone was also really obnoxious. So 2 stars for the narration alone, at least for this particular book.

Now, onto the story line. I'm not sure if the bad guy was supposed to be as obvious as it was or not but I knew who it was really early on in the story so when it was revealed it was a major let down because the aha moment wasn't there. It was all very anticlimactic.

Lastly, the epilogue felt unfinished. Not unfinished in the sense of it left you wanting more but in the sense of why even bother with it because it added no value to the story what so ever. The whole book felt really juvenile.. I had hoped for more.

Her version of an American accent came off annoying at times but otherwise a great listen!!

WTF

The premise was interesting but the plot was so far fetched. There were so many wholes in the plot that it was all so contrived. I could not wait until the book was complete. Also...it was more than obvious that the author was British...there were so many phrases that no one in the US ever use.
The author could have consulted one person from the US to know that we don’t use “fortnight” or “quadcopter” .

This was awesome! Why all the mediocre reviews?

I put off reading Copycat for almost a year, because the reviews said it was merely "good", not thrilling or life-changing or even great. How I wish now I'd gone with my gut and jumped on it when it was released! I give it five enthusiastic stars.

Copycat falls into the category of a currently popular type of mystery novel: a female character witnesses something that affects her personally, she tries to warn people and figure out what's going on, NO ONE BELIEVES HER, and her sanity circles the drain as she tries to salvage her relationship, job, family, everything through some kind of resolution of the situation. I have to admit I love this kind of novel, and can never get enough of these frustrating but thrilling stories. The Woman in Cabin 10 and Baby Teeth are good recent examples of similarly structured novels that were also well-written and compelling.

Sarah, the main character, finds out she's becoming the victim of identity theft. Not in the old-fashioned taking-all-her-money way, but in the much more violating impersonation way. Someone created extra accounts in her name and is posting pics, sending emails and texts, and basically effing with her in strange ways. Sarah and her husband shrug it off as nonsense, but it ramps up quickly into something that seems too real and too perfect to be blamed on an outsider. When fingers start pointing at Sarah for sabotaging her own life, things go off in ways all of us can relate to.

While I didn't agree with how all of this was handled as it "went down", I can see how one might react similarly in real life. Books like this, that beg you to formulate a game plan and ask plenty of "what if?" questions, are important. In the 21st century, where more of our interactions are electronic than in-person, being faced with this kind of scenario is fairly probable. We *should* be scared, and we should be prepared, for when imposters try to invade our personal lives, hiding behind the veil of The Cloud.

I enjoyed this book, but there are some edits that need to be done in the audio narration

I really enjoyed this book. However, the editing needs a little work. There are two specific places where their narrator says the same phrase twice with different town. It is like the publisher did not remove the one choice of how she said something. But rather, left both of them in there so the narrator says things twice.

Interesting plot premise

Very interesting premise. The tempo is too slow with too many extraneous details that seemed to serve no purpose other than stretching out the length of this book. I skipped quite a few chapters and didn’t feel like I missed anything. The narration should have been in an accent representative of the primary setting of the story. So much of the middle part of the book was wandering, uninteresting or just stupid thoughts of the characters only to have an ending that was rushed and felt incomplete.
