The Wives: Book Review

43262893. sy475

The Wives by Tarryn Fisher is a twisted mystery leaving you wondering if you, as the reader, or the characters are the ones who cannot keep the story straight! Who is Thursday and how is she intertwined with Monday and Tuesday, or is she Seth’s one and only true love?  

Thursday is the narrator and main character in this perplexing mystery. The author explains the situation very well from the beginning of the story so you can follow who is who, but their roles become muddied as Thursday becomes more curious about her Polygamist husband’s other wives. From the beginning, Thursday was always okay with the arrangement between her and Seth; he had other wives and she would keep her curiosity at bay, knowing she was the one “legal” wife, and the most loved. But as she digs deeper into Seth’s other relationships, she realizes she might not be the most important and she is starting to understand why. Will collaboration with the other wives help answer some of her questions? What will Seth do when he finds out she has contacted the other wives? 

I give this story 4 out of 5 stars for its intricate and intriguing plot. Throughout the story the reader is left rooting for each wife for varied reasons and the author sends you on a twisted journey. There are a few times later in the story that it is hard to differentiate between the real and the imagined and to know whether this perplexity is set up purposely by the author or just the reader being confused. In the end, this book is worth reading and I would read more from Tarryn Fisher.

Simply Six Minutes: Birdies!

John’s thoughts on this beautiful bird and perhaps its origins! Thanks for the contribution!

The Sound of One Hand Typing

Here’s a happy little chappy! I don’t know if I’d have my room painted like him, but he’s very colorful.

Note I said “he”: in the bird kingdom it’s the males that are the brightly colored ones. The females are usually not that colorful. For example, the male cardinals are the red ones, while the females are kind of brown. Male robins have the reddish breast, while females have a more tan breast.

By the way, did you know that robins are thrushes? I didn’t until I looked it up just a minute ago. They belong to the family Turdidae, which frankly sounds a little gross.

I like birds. They’re the closest thing we have to the dinosaurs. They say that the notorious T. Rex probably didn’t roar so much as it chirped. Must have been why the T. rex was such a killer: the other dinosaurs were laughing…
