Description

THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
“You should read Behind Her Eyes…It’s bloody brilliant.” Stephen King

"An eerie thriller…Pinborough keeps us guessing about just who’s manipulating whom – until the ending reveals that we’ve been wholly complicit in this terrifying mind game.” —The New York Times Book Review

Why is everyone talking about the ending of Sarah Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes?

Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she’s thrilled she finally connected with someone.

When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar…who says the kiss was a terrible mistake, but who still can’t keep his eyes off Louise.

And then Louise bumps into Adele, who’s new to town and in need of a friend. But she also just happens to be married to David. And if you think you know where this story is going, think again, because Behind Her Eyes is like no other book you’ve read before.

David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife. But then why is David so controlling? And why is Adele so scared of him?

As Louise is drawn into David and Adele’s orbit, she uncovers more puzzling questions than answers. The only thing that is crystal clear is that something in this marriage is very, very wrong. But Louise can’t guess how wrong—and how far a person might go to protect their marriage’s secrets.

In Behind Her Eyes, Sarah Pinborough has written a novel that takes the modern day love triangle and not only turns it on its head, but completely reinvents it in a way that will leave readers reeling.

“Deserves its own warning label…Avoid any contact with the growing buzz concerning the novel’s ingenious, to-die-for twist.” BookPage

    MIND BLOWN by "Behind her eyes" by Sara Pinborough! Second half of the book u really want to finish it to find out all of the secrets! You will NEVER expect what happens! Love a good dramatic twist for the grand finale! Crazy! Never thought I would be into mystery/ thrillers😳 Tiny hint of creepy/ messed up, but not to Scary! Check it out! Easy read once you get used to the chapters flip flopping between the two main characters perspectives!!! #newlyanerd #bookwormlife #doit although I do agree they could have made this 50/70 pages shorter, dragged a little...but I can appreciate the detail now that I have finished. Big tip: a friend told me not to skim over the "then" chapters when I told her I wasn't particularly a fan of them in the beginning! But YES they DO become quite important to the story about half way through!!!

    Just when I thought I had everything figured out and put into place, the twisted end threw me for a loop. Probably one of my favorite book endings thus far. Great read enjoyed the entire book and the cleverness of it all.

  • Ridiculous concept

    The book was well written and kept my attention until I realized how stupid the concept was that tied it together. Really a shame as she is a good writer. She took the lazy way out to solve the mystery.

    Without giving too much away, the ending was a huge disappointment. Not a great read throughout, but I stuck with it. Now I'm so disappointed I did.
  • Awesome read
