Reading Roundup: “In Her Words”

Sophie Knight seems to have it all. A great career in accounting, a wealthy husband named Richard, and a nice apartment. Yet, she isn’t happy. She is a chain-smoking alcoholic. When she decides to go out with her friend Sylvie they meet a group of young men. The next day Sophie wakes up unaware of the events that transpired the night before. She is covered in bruises, and her dress is torn and soiled.

In a search for answers, she develops a relationship with one of the young men, Michael. He is gorgeous, conceited, and apparently just what she needs. In the midst of their relationship, she begins feeling as if she is being followed. She begins receiving notes, strange phone calls, and other threatening occurrences are happening. Her relationship with Michael becomes more than she bargains for, but the aftermath is so much worse.

This story is told in diary form, from the perspective of Sophie. This was an interesting read, however, I think the diary form of storytelling limited the development of the story. There also were some errors that I wouldn’t expect from a published (May 2019) story. I would rate it with three stars.

I was given an electronic copy of this story in exchange for an honest review. It has in no way impacted my opinion.
