#AudiobookReview – The Perfect wife by JP Delaney #ThePerfectWife

51VMIyQTw0LThe perfect life. The perfect love.

Abbie awakens in a daze with no memory of who she is or how she landed in this unsettling condition. The man by her side claims to be her husband. He’s a titan of the tech world, the founder of one of Silicon Valley’s most innovative start-ups. He tells Abbie that she is a gifted artist, an avid surfer, a loving mother to their young son, and the perfect wife. He says she had a terrible accident five years ago and that, through a huge technological breakthrough, she has been brought back from the abyss.
She is a miracle of science.
But as Abbie pieces together memories of her marriage, she begins questioning her husband’s motives–and his version of events. Can she trust him when he says he wants them to be together forever? And what really happened to Abbie half a decade ago?
Beware the man who calls you . . .”

My Review

This was a fab audiobook with perfect narration by Saskia Maarleveld, Graham Halstead and Euan Morton.

It’s set in the near future, when robots or co-bots, are being trialled by a Silicon Valley tech company for various uses in everyday life.

The story is told from both Abbie’s point of view in the present day and also by one of her unnamed colleagues but in the past. It was a very clever way to tell the story, especially when the the view points catch up with each other towards the end.

It sounds like it should be more of a science fiction novel, but it’s not and works extremely well as a psychological thriller.

I liked Abbie but really didn’t like Tim, he was odd and definitely too focussed on his work, obsessed actually. The more I learnt about him the more I didn’t like him and felt there was something very off about him. I’m not saying anything else as it’ll spoil the story for you.

There were some really good twists, especially towards the end when I couldn’t believe what I’d heard, and actually said rather loudly ‘What just happened?’ I had to go back and listen again as I was really shocked!

As I mentioned above, the narration was excellent and worked so well for this audiobook, making it a very enjoyable listening experience.

I definitey recommend this one on audio if you enjoy psychological thrillers.
