About this deal

And there in the middle of it all is Alix Summer with her big smile and her big teeth, her hair that catches the light, her simple gold chain with something hanging from it that skims her gleaming collarbones whenever she moves. Who of these well drawn characters is telling the truth, OR, as the title suggests… none of this is true? It gives away some interesting snippets about the parts of the story you have just read and puts them in wider context, such as Alix discussing her thoughts about Josie’s revelations. A volcanic eruption is quite another, for, as the journalist who does a framing voice-over na

We are—well, ask Bigfoot, as Brooks does in this delightful yarn, following on his bestseller World War Z (2006). With her dream home and two lovely children, Alix is happily married, yet recent issues in her marriage leave her seeking a distraction. She loves that Nathan thinks she’s pretty, but she also wishes that Nathan could see the beauty in less conventionally attractive women too.Choose a true crime podcast to listen to and compare and contrast the narration approach with Alix’s podcast. because of this, the plot was not incredibly surprising and the plot twists were extremely mild/predictable… BUT all of it was unsettling and i enjoyed the vibe. There’s lots of tension, some great twists, together with some very dark and complex characters, as Ms Jewell expertly peels back the layers with consummate skill to reveal an intricate and twisted tale that’s such a worthy read. What were you excited to explore by including a podcast within the structure, as well as by having one of the narrators be a podcaster?

For all of Josie’s flaws, it has to be said that Walter is equally responsible for their dysfunctionality.I knew there was one more thing I could give myself (as at this point I still didn’t really truly know what had happened or who to believe) and to the reader, that would absolutely make sense of everything at the same time as turning everything on its head, and so when I wrote that epilogue and saw what had really happened through the lens of Josie’s warped and broken mind, I was as shocked as I expect my readers to be. And you have to be ready to set aside that a 13-15 year old CHILD cannot consent to a relationship regardless of how whackadoodle sociopathic she is. Your views on both of them undergo several U-turns via the plot revelations which makes for fascinating and at times, horrifying reading. When Josie suggests she do a podcast about her, and her wish to steer her life in a new direction, she agrees.

I read this in day which I am deliberately not doing any more, because this was such a captivating read and a great book overall. With heavy themes and creepy personalities of certain characters, None of This is True is a page-turner that made my head spin trying to outsmart Ms. Alix begins to doubt some parts of Josie’s revelations when she talks to people who know her and have interacted with her in the past.Alix's life is nowhere near as shiny as it appears on the surface and Josie is just a fascinating character. A storyline which makes this difficult to endure in some parts, but they are real life issues so of course we should cover them. That said, this game of cat and mouse was such a deviously delightful read that I can’t help but highly recommend it for your 2022 TBR. However, either way you swing it, there is one particular character who is 100% a horrific person regardless of which scenario is correct.
