Her is a slow moving psychological thriller that leaves more questions than answers.
The book begins with successful, poised, well off artist Nina catching sight of exhausted, poor, overwhelmed Emma. A flood of very bad memories hits Nina, but she befriends Emma (who does not recognize her) anyway. Of course, Nina’s way of befriending Emma is quite different than you would expect. The word that comes to mind is menacing…
Tension builds as the novel continues, until the reader understands that something very bad is going to happen. But we just do not know why.
Told from both Emma’s and Nina’s perspectives, the past unfolds in little snippets in each chapter.
If you have a lot of patience, you may enjoy this novel.
