The It Girl by Ruth Ware
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ten years ago, Hannah found her best friend and roommate strangled on the floor of their room. Today, the man convicted of the crime has died in prison. And this event sparks new memories in Hannah’s head. The obsession with the old trauma begins. After speaking to the group of her college friends, Hannah begins to suspect that she has identified the wrong man as her friend’s murderer.
I am a long-time fan of Ruth Ware. One of her tricks is to let the reader spot the villain early in the novel, but puzzle them with the way they have performed their evil mission. Loved the plot, and absolutely enjoyed the way the events of the fatal night got untangled at the end. BUT, I just could not stand Hannah. Her constantly indecisive and whiney character irritated me to my bones. Nevertheless, I have enjoyed the novel and would recommend it to all my suspense/thriller-loving friends.
