Far-fetched "twist", unlikable female characters, and bland writingOnce again a Kindle free first of the month selection ends up disappointing, leaving me and many other readers/reviewers wondering where and how are these books chosen?Billed as a psychological thriller, there is nothing thrilling nor even suspenseful about Amelie Antoine's offering. What sounded like an interesting and off- beat read from the description soon devolved into tedium. We meet Chloe and her husband Gabriel. Chloe's d [...]
A case study in how people don't behave.Plenty of spoilers below, so don't read if you've any interest in reading this absolute car crash of a novel.Twists aren't good just because they're surprising, they need to actually make sense in the context of the story. The twists in this novel are idiotic. Chloe wasn't dead, it was all just a TV show? Are you serious? For €500,000 a woman is willing to put her entire family, her friends and her husband through 6 months of anguish? Not only that but s [...]
Interference is one of those books I wish we could discuss after you finish reading it. But I want you to be as surprised as I was when I read it. This story is about a man and a wife who seem to really love each other and about another women that plays an important role. Each chapter is told from the pov of each of the three characters. On yes, there is a tragic death. Ok that's all I'm saying about the plot. The characters, they are interesting. Some of the reviews I read talked about not real [...]
If I could unread this, I would. The only reason I read it through to the end was because I was stuck on a six hour train ride. Apologies to the author; I hate to be so harsh, but the story feels like only a cheap imitation of legitimate thrillers. The "twist" is so dumb, my jaw was literally hanging open as I read it because I could not believe the author was serious. If this description is actually intriguing you and tempting you to read it, don't. I just saved you several hours of your life. [...]
I received this as my Kindle First selection. Since they started the program, this was the first time that I actually had any interest in what was offered, so I was pretty excitedFirst, the writing styleThe MMC is written in third person while the two FMCs are written in first. That is, until the very end where we have a random chapter about Emma (the second FMC) written in third person. I couldn't figure out a logical reason for this, and to be honest, I found Gabriel's chapters a bit tedious. [...]
Twists and turnsThe author pulled off a quick story with lots of great twists and turns. I quite enjoyed this Kindle First.
HOW good is this book !!!! On two counts as welly as a tremendous story with some truly shocking moments along with secondly,the fact it's not full of mistakes so I'm highly impressed. AND it's a translated tale which puts those writing in English as a first language to shameor it should do. Just a fantastic job altogether.I got it before the official release date on the First programme. It was my pick this month and what a great decision that was.My favourite character of the story was Emma. I [...]
Wowza. And not in a good way.When I started reading this book I was interested in the characters and wondered whether or not Chloe was a ghost or spirit or had somehow been kidnapped. I felt bad for Gabriel and noticed that Chloe didn't seem to have much empathy as she watched him grieve. When the plot twist happened I was stunned . I almost thought I misread it. When I realized that was really the twist, I wished it was a paperback instead of my Kindle so I could throw it across the room . I di [...]
Whoa! I cannot say anything about this book without giving it away. If you can hang in through 75% of the book it is worth it. After the major "wow" hang on because another one is right at the end. This would be a great movie!
The book opens with a chapter entitled Chloé. She speaks in a disembodied voice, a personal commentary delivered with such self-assurance that she seems to have escaped the confines of time:“I feel like I'm in the here and now, as if the future and the past don't exist anymore. As if this moment could go on indefinitely.” (p.1) We remind ourselves not to think ill of the dead, but. Chloé seems oblivious to her tone which hints at a disturbing self-regard. She insists:“I love Gabriel, and [...]
I love a trashy read when I have a long rush-hour commute but this is seriously one of the most ludicrous stories I've ever read, really jaw-droppingly silly. (view spoiler)[ Chloe drowns while swimming and we're made to think she's a ghost watching over her husband Gabriel, especially when he gets over his grief pretty fast and starts to fall for photographer Emma: but then Chloe comes back and confesses that she's not really dead (despite Gabriel having identified her body in a morgue) because [...]
This is probably the most original story I've read in a long time. When it begins it seems to fit into one fiction genre, and then it switches to another in a novel twist that comes as a total surprise. Gabriel and Chloe have been married for eight years, and suddenly Gabriel finds out that she's dead. He sees the body in the morgue, and knows he has to move on from his grief. He meets Emma, and his life seems to change for the better. I can't say any more about the plot without giving the whole [...]
Kindle First burns me again. Usually I reserve one star for books I can't finish, but I did this time to see what the plot contrivance was. My mistake. I love an unreliable narrator (or three), but this was excruciating--from the author's choosing first person for two characters and third person for another, to the awful characters, plot, and denouement. Other reviewers cover it much better than I could, with spoilers and without, so I hope you'll pardon me if I don't bother. The author already [...]
fast read, got better, interesting take on this. I liked the ending!
Vraiment Sympa. J'avais un peu deviné le truc, donc ça m'a coupé la surprise, mais il faut avouer que le premier retournement de situation est plutôt bien fait :)Seul bémol : la fin est un peu laissée en suspens, mais je suppose que c'était l'idée.
Interference Amelie Antoine, Maren Baudet-Lackner ReviewRating: 3/5Interference tries to play smart. It’s one of those $1.99 offers in Kindle First and I can’t just pass on this indie type thriller with marital themes and affairs. It’s also hugely advertised on its apparently “shocking” twist at the end. It was a fine sunny day for me and I felt like picking something quick and an easy-to-digest fast paced read so I had to pick this one up. It’s just 192 pages so that won’t be a hu [...]
2.5 starsI loved this bookuntil the "twist." Then I wanted to throw it at the wall (but wisely the reconsidered, this being the digital age and my wall already bearing pockmarks from several iPhones and a previous Kindle). Summary: Chloe decides that it's time for her "final swim," and leaves her husband Gabriel behind. The story is written in Chloe's perspective as she watches Gabriel painfully deal with his grief, and eventually begin a relationship with Emma, an aspiring war reporter. But why [...]
4.5 stars! I could not put this book down! What a wild ride! When I started reading Interference, I was set on a thriller. Then as I got into it, I adjusted my expectations to more love story, then BAM! A twist I did not see coming! And just when I got over that surprise, the ending twisted again! I loved all the plot twists, and I loved that the story was set in France. Great read!
After reading many reviews of this book, I just had to read it myself. Rarely have I seen so many mixed reviews of a book. And now I know why. The two Female characters are very different from each other. Chloe is most certainly a narcissistic, spoiled little bitch. Emma is not, although many other readers saw her as such. Yes, she is narcissistic, but carelessly thoughtless. She hasn't really thought her role in this story through.The plot twist really surprised me, as it will you. It is COMPLE [...]
I found this book an easy, smooth read. The build-up of tension and mystery was good and kept me turning the pages. The characters were well drawn and the issue of grief is explored thoroughly and sensitively. However, about two-thirds of the way through comes the big twist which somehow feels a bit of a cheat on the author's part. Of course, as readers, we suspend our disbelief willingly a certain extent. But when a twist could never happen in real life, not least because it would be morally wr [...]
Ah, sweet revenge!At the beginning I wasn't sure what was going on with Chloe. Had she left her husband? If so, how was she watching him? It soon becomes clear and then I wondered where this story was headed. Is it about how well we really know the people we care about? Well, ultimately that is what this story covers, but the twist about half way in puts a whole different spin on it! You know there is a reckoning coming for two characters and you keep waiting to find out what it will be! The end [...]
Wow. This was good. I didn't know what kind of book I was reading. It kept surprising me. I can't recommend this enough. You will think, okay, I know what's going on here--NOPE! That was fascinating. You hear from the perspective of three different characters as time passes by. I don't want to say anything else for fear of spoilers, but if you like psychological dramas, suspense, thrillers, murder mysteries or all of the above give it a try.
This is a tricky one to review. People really hated it or really liked it. It is not predictable. There are unreliable narrators. As a reader, you have to go along with the story for the reward. A man loses his wife and tries to move on with his life, or can he? Anything else is a spoiler.Provided by publisher and Kindle First
Wow! This book will suck you in and spit you out leaving you wondering what just happened. I was completely surprised by the ending!
This is a kindle first pick and I made the right choice! I like unlikable characters sometimes, they tend to stir the pot of emotions. Plenty of wow moments here and a perfect ending.
Very good read Very surprising plot. Really liked the book Very thought provoking as this could happen to a any of us anytime.
Oh boy. I am very conflicted about Interference. On one hand, I couldn't stop reading this; on the other hand, the reason I couldn't stop reading because it was a train wreck. On one hand, it had a totally unexpected twist; on the other hand, it was a far-fetched, bullshit twist. On one hand, this is a book I'll likely not forget; on the other hand, I really wish I could forget it. In all honesty, Interference wasn't terrible, but it was a disappointment. Completely awful people doing things tha [...]
Chloe and Gabriel are the perfect couple. When Chloe drowns, Gabriel feels devastated however he starts to learn more about his wife, how she has cheated on him, deceived him.Definitely not the story that I was expecting, but I enjoyed it. It is good to be surprised by a story from time to time, and this is a surprising story that challenges you to ask - how well do you really know the love of your life?
Complètement bluffée et totalement convaincue par ce roman au scénario invraisemblable ! Rien que pour ça, je salue le tour de force. Je recommande sans détour. ☺blogclarabelnalblog/arc.
The premise of this book is something very different and was definitely not what I was expecting. The book is written from the point of view of the three main characters and I did think it strange that one of them is dead and still has a strong narrative. However I really didn't see the twist coming.My one disappointment was the ending for Emma which I really thought was going too far and the book may have benefited from finishing a chapter sooner than it did.However full marks for coming up wit [...]
