  • For most of the book, nothing happens

    This book was slow and nothing happens for at least 95% of the book. You read 95% of a book, you expect something remarkable to happen, never did.

  • Terrific until the twists

    Can lies be forgiven by love? Are ten years of marriage worth saving, even though one of the so many problems is a lack of communication? The storyline, which develops slowly (or perhaps too slow) is well structured. And the writing, although very simple, is very engaging. This work is clearly not flawless, but I found it very entertaining and I did not want to stop reading it. None of the characters are likeable, but that did not bother me. I just wished that they were more developed. I loved the POV of each character, which shows their different perspectives. How much can you really know someone? The dialogues and the inner thoughts are somewhat clever. It’s a showcase of human nature (and unreliable narrators). I really enjoyed the first 77% of this book and I was ready to rate it 4 stars, until a certain twist that disappointed me immensely. One that was a bucket of icy water over my head. Wasn’t the couple plotting against each other? Why change directions? But that wasn’t enough. There were more twists. And it became absurd (or just farfetched), which seems to be the author’s standard way to end a book. Anyways… once again I’m the outlier. My friends loved this book. Their enthusiasm was contagious and it filled me up with expectations. Perhaps I will enjoy the adaptation for the TV. PS. Although I’m not a big fan of this author, I will continue to give her a chance to win my heart. You can never know.

  • Amazing!

    So amazing. I didn't imagine it would be this good. The writing is very well done. The twists and turns are very well thought through. It takes a great mind to write like this.

  • What an excellent ride!😲

    ⌛Amazing! Could not put it down!😳 Author Alice Feeney really had me fooled! This nail-biter just sucked me in and I thought I had a handle on where it was going until, wow, everything upended! I loved the shock factor and the manner in which Feeney takes her time to reveal the true underpinnings for the Wright's getaway to Scotland. The tension in this thriller never slackens and the setting, in a snow-covered, remote part of the Scottish Highlands, made Adam and Amelia Wright's worsening circumstances all the more ominous. Add to that unexpected noises, locked and secret rooms, musty crypt and power outages and the stage was set for a decidedly creepy weekend. This plot is full of twists and, I decided, inconsistencies, until I really thought about it and realized that my assumptions had tricked me as much as the characters in the story. Brilliant! Thanks to Macmillan, Flatiron Books and NetGalley for sharing a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Simmering, atmospheric, and intense!

    Rock Paper Scissors is a slow-burning, compelling, domestic thriller that reminds us that things aren’t always as they seem and sometimes the ones we think we know the best can often turn out to be complete strangers. It is, ultimately, a story about family, trust, marriage, deception, lies, manipulation, and secrets. The writing is clear and precise. The plot is brimming with twists, turns, multiple surprises, and eerie revelations. And the three main characters, Adam, Amelia, and Robin, are flawed, bitter, and devious. Overall, Rock Paper Scissors is a clever, gothic, unnerving page-turner by Feeney that is truly a complex web of deceit that kept me engaged and guessing from start to finish.

    Thanks for your feedback!
