Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris (Book Review)

What I liked about it:

Easy to read. It was such a short read for me, probably because I was expecting the novel to get more complicated. However, it is a good thing that this was such an easy read – minimal characters, uncomplicated way of narration.
Plot. The plot will make me look forward to how the book will end. Since the story revolves around the wife, saving herself from her husband – wanting to know if they’d get saved made me hang on to the story.


What I didn’t like about the book:

It was not relatable. I know I am not supposed to relate to every book I read, but this one feels like the story is far from happening in real life – because the main characters, Grace and Jack, does not make the scenes believable. Jack is the villain, a pyschopath, but he doesn’t act like one at all.
Jack’s Motive. Jack just wanted someone that will fear him, and he thinks that Grace’s sister, Millie, will be the perfect person for that. So he marries Grace, to scare Millie. If anyone figured this out, I’d be very glad to have Jack’s motive explained – because it honestly didn’t make sense while I was reading. Thanks!

How it ended for me:

The ending was good because of how Grace handled it, but at the same time, it was bad because of the way Grace defeated the Jack.

There was one night when the rain poured so hard, and i didn't want it to stop. Weird, because i was afraid and amused by the sound of the rain and thunder. The sound of it made me less alone that night. The next day i woke up to find my collection of journals soaked. I keep it near the window to make sure no one could read it. The writings can still be read but i was devastated by the damage. I wanted it preserved but i don't want it published. Still amused by the rain but afraid of the wrath it could bring to my journals, i created this blog.
