REVIEW: The Fury by Alex Michaelides



This is the second book I've read by Alex Michaelides and I'm going to be honest and say that while the writing can be engaging, at times, I was never surprised by the twist. I predicted the ending in both the novels I read and that, my friends, was just ugh. That coupled with the annoying characters made this read a mildly entertaining slog. A solid three stars but I feel like the only thing I'll remember about this one is that I, once again, predicted the ending! Gah. 



This is a tale of murder.

Or maybe that’s not quite true. At its heart, it’s a love story, isn’t it?

Lana Farrar is a reclusive ex–movie star and one of the most famous women in the world. Every year, she invites her closest friends to escape the English weather and spend Easter on her idyllic private Greek island.

I tell you this because you may think you know this story. You probably read about it at the time ― it caused a real stir in the tabloids, if you remember. It had all the necessary ingredients for a press a celebrity; a private island cut off by the wind…and a murder.

We found ourselves trapped there overnight. Our old friendships concealed hatred and a desire for revenge. What followed was a game of cat and mouse ― a battle of wits, full of twists and turns, building to an unforgettable climax. The night ended in violence and death, as one of us was found murdered.

But who am I?

My name is Elliot Chase, and I’m going to tell you a story unlike any you’ve ever heard.
