This is a DNF from me. Nothing about this was enjoyable or entertaining. Husband and wife go to a reunion, a stranger starts telling him about all the dirty stuff his wife used to do. Instead of trusting his wife, he automatically starts to believe the strangers. It says a lot that he just automatically loses all faith in his wife. He stumbles across his wife cheating on him at the reunion, which says a lot about her.
The novel then proceeds to spend the next several chapters with the couple lying to each other, going behind each other’s backs, and playing games. His wife spends their entire relationship lying to him, cheats on him the first chance he gets, plans a follow-up in their home, and then lies to his face about it.
There’s a huge difference between women who are “no angel” and this. Listening to this book is like being held prisoner as the male character spends the entire time moping about his cheating wife and trying to figure out how he feels about it. There’s little “romance” of any kind. The wife is always talking about how much she adores her husband, but never really shows it. It feels like being stuck in a room with 2 people who can’t decide if they want a divorce or counseling.
I really couldn’t get behind the narrator. I couldn’t understand him at high speeds and listening to this story at normal speed is unbearable. He reads every line in the same tone of voice and never seems to take natural pauses between lines. It’s emotionless and sounds like he’s in a hurry. Maybe he couldn’t stand reading it either.
