You’ll have to listen to find out why.

"Nail-biting, heart-clenchingly good." (Alexandra Torre, New York Times best-selling author)

Awful.

This book made me angry. The depiction of the female as weak and useless is off putting and to use mental illness in this way is really quite lazy and despicable. Don’t waste a credit.

Unlikeable main character, author cheats

I bought this novel because it had many good reviews as a thriller (one of my favorite genres) and one reviewer compared it to Gone Girl, which is one of my all-time favorites, a true masterpiece. I figured that if this was anything like Gone Girl it had to be fabulous. Sigh. So wrong.

One neutral thing I'll say up front is that this novel is clearly targeted at a female audience, unlike Gone Girl, which had extremely broad targeting and appeal. I'm a late-middle-age guy, so this novel had one small strike against it for me through little or no fault of its own. The only 'good' thing I'll say about this novel is that it held my attention well enough that I finished it, as I really did want to know how it ended. Another big mistake.

The first major criticism I have is that the 'heroine' of the story is an utter idiot, constantly getting into trouble through her own carelessness and stupidity. It's impossible to root for a character who does one dumb thing after another. Over and over as I read, I wanted to scream at this lady, "Don't DO that you jerk!" This was not a novel about a woman cast into hard circumstances and battling her way out through her own spunk and cleverness. Rather, this was a novel about a woman digging herself into a deeper and deeper hole through her own 'bad choices' (an understatement).

I promise that my next comment is not a spoiler; it's just my opinion about the ending, given in vague generalities. I admit that the premise and promise were wonderful, driving me to keep reading so I could find out how it all resolves. In short, I trusted the author to pull off a great twist or other satisfying conclusion. And clearly, it was the author's intention to deliver a shocking surprise ending. Unfortunately, the only reason the ending was a surprise is that the author repeatedly lied to the reader during the novel, misleading the reader in ways that I believe most people would call massively unfair. It's as if the reader sees a character get a letter that's printed on red paper, and only at the end do we learn that the paper was actually blue. The author shows us things through the main character's eyes that at the end we are told were not really what she/we saw. I'm sorry, but that's cheating, plain and simple. I was so angry at the ending that I immediately sat down and pounded out this review. I can't believe I wasted all those hours not only being frustrated with the 'heroine's' stupidity as she did one bone-headed thing after another, but when the end finally came it was a horrendous letdown and a revelation that the author had lied and cheated all the way through. Honestly, I wish I could give this book a negative star rating.

Seriously?

This book had so much potential... but the ending was ridiculous. Sort of like when you wrote stories for school in the fifth grade and ended it with "and it was all a dream" when you dont know what else to do. Nine hours of my life that I will never get back. Narration, however, was very good - can't blame her for reading a terrible book.

What a story!!

I don't even know what to say or how to review this book. I expected a story that was a bit off the rails but The Wives was off the rails and was set in fire! I am beyond floored. The first 50% of the story was a nice set up and showing you this nice neat box. Ha! Tarryn Fisher must not like nice or neat because she took that box and played basketball ball with it and then set it on fire. Everything I thought I knew, I didn't. I mean, woah!

The narration by Lauren Fortgang was amazing. She portrayed Thursday to a T. Her narration mixed with the way Mrs. Fisher writes was stunning. It came to life. Just a very messed up life that will shock all listeners!!!

Unbelievable

Not a very believable story. Watch out for the crude language if the constant F bombs are not your style in books. Not sure why I finished it. This book is a reminder to myself to check out the author and see what other books they have written before deciding to read one of their books.

Pitiful

Spoiler: she’s crazy. About a boy. I am so tired of this kind of novel and it’s not interesting in the slightest

WTF?!?

I don’t know who is reviewing these books on Audible, but the 5 star reviews for this book I are completely false!! This book was terrible, the plot ridiculous and the writing was just, plain bad. A lot of useless details and and overly descriptive text about nothing. The ending was just dumb. I can’t believe I wasted an Audible credit on this silly book!

Don’t believe the good reviews.

This book is extremely annoying and not worth your time. Had I known it had to do with mental illness warping reality, I would have done a hard pass.

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫

I love a book that has me excited and makes me want to discuss it the entire time I'm listening. This one had me coming up with all kinds of theories and that ending was perfect along with the narration! Can't wait for bookclub so I can talk about it with others!

What the ACTUAL......!?!

Oh my lanta! What did I just listen too?!?

This is by far one of the most effed up books I’ve listened to in quite awhile. In the MOST delicious way! In true Tarryn fashion, she hooks you, reals you in, and kills you slowly.

I really thought I knew how this book was going, I was wrong. So very wrong.

The twists turns one takes on the journey to the end of this book are without a doubt, jarring. Be prepared for gasps, hand to mouth in astonishment, and lots of OMGs.

So far, this is my favorite Tarryn Fisher book....and I’ve read all of them.

Whether you buy a hard copy, an ebook, or choose to listen to it like I did, this is a MUST read!!

kein typischer Tarryn Fisher....

....und überhaupt nicht mein Geschmack. Dieses ist das von mir am wenigsten gemochte Buch.
Wenn ich einen TF-Roman kaufe erwarte ich einen hirnerschütternden, herzzerreissenden, verstörenden und bewegenden Roman. Der "Oportunist" und "F*ck Love" gehören zu meinen absoluten Lieblingsbüchern.
"The Wives" ist ein Psychothriller, mit vielen Wendungen, Verirrungen, stellenweise sehr spannend und unvorhersehbar. Leider sind ähnliche Geschichte schon geschrieben worden. Das Buch ist eine Mischung aus "Girl on the Train", "Shutter Island" und "Gone Girl". War einfach nichts für mich. Hoffentlich findet TF wieder zurück...

Unendlich schlecht!!!

Das einzig faszinierende an diesem Roman, ist die Tatsache, dass die Autorin es tatsächlich geschafft hat, einen völlig vorhersehbaren Plott, auf unvorstellbar dämliche Art und Weise doch noch dümmer Enden zu lassen als man es sich vorstellen konnte. RIP vergeudete Lebenszeit....
