Too much of anything can be bad. Maybe that’s why people seek balance. But how much is the right amount? And who decides? To what extent can rules create amicable living, before a feeling of “being chained by rules” takes over and we want to break free of them?
I love reading thrillers, the pace is something that I love, to know what happens next. Psychological thrillers are a bit different, I think, because some also look at why what has just happened has happened. I remember hearing about Patricia Highsmith’s Strangers on a Train, and this novel seemed a bit similar from the blurb.
