Description

Instead of feeling threatened, Alix decides to feature Josie on a podcast about the lives of ordinary women. Alix is convinced by Josie to make her the subject and storyline of her next podcast which reaches out to thousands of women suffering domestic and psychological abuse, and women who enjoy hearing other life stories. This means there won’t be a classic Lisa Jewell novel coming in 2024, but I hope that some of you might take a punt on my foray into sci-fi! Transcripts from Alix’s interviews alternate with the narrative, offering increasingly varied perspectives on Josie’s story as told by her neighbors, friends, and family members. It’s like listening to a concerto slowly raises its tempo and as you reach the ending, you hear the crescendo: that’s moment the earth shattering revelation squeezes your heart, you barely breathe!

She wears wide-legged trousers and a top made of two pieces of black cloth held together with laces at the sides. As Alix digs deeper into Josie’s life and her secrets trickle out, a much more troubling picture emerges. As the podcast continues, some very disturbing facts begin to reveal themselves, and Alix realises that she’s made a big mistake! Overall, there may not be many likeable characters in sight, but it is still a gripping read with a plot that fascinates from start to finish. These sections are well written because you know that what she says cannot be taken as gospel, but there are bits of truth hidden among the lies and it challenges you to pick them apart.

Josie is adamant to involve in Alix’s life, creating coincidences to bump into her around her children’s schoolyard. Josie ponders her life and choices throughout the novel, at one point wondering how she might leave her family and live elsewhere. As Josie slowly integrates herself into Alix’s life, into her very home, she’ll discover that Josie isn’t exactly who she portrays herself to be. While reading the book, I felt like the emoji that has both hands over their eyes but with their fingers spread so that the upcoming train wreck is slightly visible. In contrast, Josie takes an unsettling turn, becoming adamant about getting involved in Alix's life.

The Netflix extracts are particularly powerful as they pile intrigue on intrigue, to say nothing of the building suspense. The reason I am not giving None of This Is True five stars, which I thought I would for 95% of the book, is that I feel conflicted about the ending. Alix is a successful journalist, and Josie convinces Alix that her story is worth telling: Josie met her husband when she was 13 and he was 40.Saturday, 8 June, 2019 Josie can feel her husband’s discomfort as they enter the golden glow of the gastropub. With the Netflix documentary on top, the concept of the podcast offers the right amount of originality to stand out alongside other titles with similar formats, and the mystery is never simple to decipher at any step of the way. Peeling apart the layers of her backstory, discovering her childhood, her role as a mother, and the lies she has told, was pure heart-pounding fun! When Josie and Walter come for dinner at Alix and Nathan’s, it becomes clear that Josie hasn’t told Walter about the podcast. She sees Alix getting to her feet and heading toward the toilet, jumps to her own feet, and says, “I’m going to the ladies.
