My Husband Summary

My Husband: A gripping read Sunday Times by Maud Ventura

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
PRIZE WINNER OF FRANCE'S FIRST NOVEL AWARD


'Riveting' OBSERVER
'Totally addictive' ALICE SLATER
'I couldn't put it down' JOHN BOYNE

From the outside, she has an enviable life: a successful career, stunning looks, a beautiful house in the suburbs, two healthy children, and most importantly, an ideal husband. After fifteen years together, she is still besotted with him. But she's never quite sure that her passion is reciprocated.

Determined to keep their relationship perfect, she meticulously prepares for every encounter they have, always taking care to make her actions seem effortless. She watches him attentively, charting every mistake and punishing him accordingly to help him improve. And she tests him - setting traps to make sure that he still loves her just as much as he did when they first met.

Until one day she realizes she may have gone too far . . .

With the surprise of Gone Girl, the bleakness of The Talented Mr Ripley and the sinister charm of the Netflix thriller You, My Husband is a bold and exhilarating story of passion and the dark secrets that lie beneath a seemingly healthy marriage.

My Husband Reviews

An unsettling novel about the ultimate unknowability of your spouse and a sure-footed addition to a canon that might include Jane Eyre and Gone Girl . . . Gripping reading * Sunday Times *
An absolute banger! Paranoid, claustrophobic, and totally addictive, My Husband will give you whiplash. It's my new obsession: from the very first page, I couldn't leave it alone -- Alice Slater
Theres simply no way of telling how far shell go, and her increasingly volatile unreliability as a narrator makes the story all the more riveting -- Observer
This is not a conventional thriller as such, but there is plenty of suspense and the stakes are high. A bestseller and prize winner in France, this cool examination of the balance of power in a marriage comes over as the screwed-up offspring of Marguerite Durass The Lover. That there is a final twist is the only predictable aspect of a skilfully manipulated psychological drama. Emily (Bronte) in Paris * Times *
My Husband is a clever, unsettling and, at times, funny tale of unhinged marital devotion * Guardian *
