Malignant: a gripping psychological thriller you do not want to miss by Anita Waller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book surprised me. I was glued to it wondering what was going to happen next. I was on an emotional roller coaster all the way through. I am not one to deeply discuss the plot in reviews because I think you can read the synopsis and the rest you should discover on your own. I do give a heads up for certain themes because I know some aren’t ready to read them. One is domestic violence which is in this book. I believe the author handled it well in the respect that it is only as graphic as it needs to be. Just enough for the reader to know it was present, who knew or didn’t, what the results were. The friendship between Claudia and Heather was fairly honest. It was very touching yet difficult. I loved reading it. The relationship with Claudia and her children was too. The characters were likable people with exceptions to those we were suppose to dislike. Even those, though, were characters that I could think of as representing someone I really knew. I liked how the marriages were portrayed, how love and hate dance with each other, how easy it is to cross back and forth between feelings with the people in our lives. I would recommend this book. I think it would actually be a good book club selection with all the things going on. There is much to discuss in the plot twists, lies, events and relationships.
