    Not what you'd expect

    Jean Mason is a woman in Toronto who owns a bookstore named Bookstore. She has several regular customers. One day they start telling her she has a doppelgänger in Kensington Market - except she wears different clothes and has short hair - so Jean decides to find the woman, who's name is Ingrid Fox. She quickly meets a few locals and pays them to keep a look out for her. From there the story becomes psychological. Ingrid Fox is married and has a daugher. She writes myster novels. Soon one of Jean's friends commits suicide (or so she thinks), another is murdered and the rest disappear from Kensington Market. Jean soon begins unravelling. What is happening to Jean? This is the question you ask yourself throughout the novel. She seems to have an out of body experience. Who is this woman she sees? Is she even real? I enjoyed reading Michael Redhill's book. He is an excellent writer. He is observant and Jean is a well-written, complex character. We see her thought process, which is often confusing and misleading given that she doesn't know what's happening inside her head and starts to question what's real in her life. I devoured this book after reading the first page. I also enjoy the fact that it is based in Toronto.

    The Selfie Redefined.

    A totally gripping psychological thriller with great characterization of the female narrator. Redhill has us on the razor's edge as we try to determine if is she reliable or unreliable, and indeed, who is she? Puts a whole new twist on the idea of the "selfie." Of interest to those who enjoyed Antonioni's Blow Up, Golding's Pincher Martin, Atwood's Alias Grace.

    Fantastic and spooky read

    Red hill gets inside, right inside his protagonist’s head and from there, well, hold on to your hats, it’s a wild twisty ride.

    boring read

    I have read and liked his other books....this was confusing and boring. I have a great deal of difficulty trusting Giller winners these days.
