I Know You Know Reviews
Okay, why. This book had a lot of potential. It was well written and the podcast transcripts were on point. I could really imagine them being voiced in the style of something like Serial. But again, I felt like the book was relying too heavily on the gimmick of being about a podcast instead of focusing on having an actually good story.
This book's biggest problem is the all-over-the-place plot that leads nowhere, the ending that is super unsatisfying and the absolute lack of suspense throughout t ...more
It was just okay for me. Not good, not great. I loved Perfect Girl, this one wasn’t near as good for me.
The storyline was good, the execution not so much. And the ending was really weak. Characters were all pretty much unlikable and not a lot of development for me there.
This Is a 2 1/2 for me.
The summary for this book describes it as an “original, chilling, twisty mystery,” which I definitely feel is fitting, however I would also add one more word to that description: clever! This is one of those books where it’s best to go in knowing as little as possible and let the flow of the story take you on a ride that is at once thrilling and completely unpredictable!
I’ve read my fair share of thrillers / psychological suspense novels the past few years, but none of them have been quite as u ...more
I want to thank the publisher for personally sending me a copy of this wonderfully written book! This book is the type of book that holds the readers attention , as they turn each page wondering which character is telling the truth and is everyone lying and keeping secrets? Cody swift has been dealing with the brutal murders of his two best friends for twenty years and believes deep down that the wrong person was sent to prison. So he decides to start a podcast and dig into his friends murders w ...more
I enjoyed this book and kept interested all throughout the story. It kept you wondering about who was guilty of what. None of the characters had a likable personality, so it was hard to feel bad for any of them. The story was tricky and twisting. Definitely a great beach read or plane ride book. A page turner and good mystery.
Many years ago, two young boys were murdered and a mentally challenged adult male was charged and convicted for the crime, but many people believe him to be innocent for various reasons. So now, in present day, the boys’ best friend has decided to re-investigate the crime and release a true crime podcast with his findings as he investigates. His investigation brings forth new information for consideration, but it also reopens old wounds for many of the people involved. Several people are un ...more
Thanks to Goodreads Firstreads and William Morrow for an arc of I Know You Know by Gilly Macmillan. The following is my honest review of the book:
If you've never had the opportunity to read anything by Gilly Macmillan and you like thrillers, I highly recommend you pick up one of her books and dive in. To date, I've been hooked on everything I've read by her.
In this book, two boys were brutally murdered twenty years ago and their bodies were dumped near a dog racing track.. Due to a piece of luck ...more
Is this book some kind of prank?
(view spoiler)[A good cop is really a bad cop.
His meek partner is now the smart cop.
A bad mother is now a good mother.
Her thuggish pimp is now an astute businessman.
The third young boy who survived the murder of his two best friends is now exploiting their deaths in a podcast leading to a PR stunt for a new television show.
Everything is turned around 180° by the end of this book. (hide spoiler)]
Pranks cause humiliation, embarrassment, and anger. I feel I’ve been h ...more
