Is this stalkerish?! Am I obsessed? Maybe I need to make an appointment with Darius. I wonder how Darius would diagnose me? Perhaps he’d think I was just a little bit stalkerish but not full-blown crazy stalker? Or better yet, I’d have Jolene observe me, what would she think? What would Fig and her loony eyes see when they looked at me?
I’m going to put my obsession aside for a moment. Can we talk about this insanity I just read from you? First, I think you’re brilliant and maybe a little crazy. Second, I’m a little bit scared of you, but I’m more scared of your observers. Third, I’m in awe of you and your top knot and your words and your brain and your storytelling and, my god, I hope not a word of this story is true because … I keep picturing Misery and hearing the shower scene music from Psycho. Why are people so g-ddamn crazy? It’s a question I ask often.
I can’t say much else because I want your observers, I mean readers, to go into this book without knowing much about Fig or Jolene or Darius. They should just know that your twisted tale and creepy characters were exhilarating and made my cold black heart start and stop over and over. Bad Mommy is basically a freaking Christmas miracle that everyone needs to read. It's like you gave me the best present ever so thank you for that. And even if I have to wait another year for a new masterpiece from you, I’ll do so patiently while I stalk your insta. Your words are worth the wait.
I love that we got to see things from the points of view of three different characters. I love how absolutely different each of their views of the situations were. Talk about unreliable narrators….at least for the most part. It’s weird to say that I liked them all especially given how totally crazy they could be. While reading one POV, you want to hate one character and love another. While reading another POV you learn who someone truly is and it’s a bit mind-blowing. And then we get to the final POV and some things finally make a bit of sense, but you’re still left wondering what the F just happened.
I couldn’t put this book down. I needed to know what the heck was going on. I started reading while eating breakfast and then ended up putting off all of the things I had to do today because I needed to finish this. It won’t be for everyone, but it’s one heck of a read and I highly recommend it. I can’t wait to see what she writes next.
This book is nothing like you expect but everything you expect from Tarryn Fisher.
I finished this book 3 days ago and I can't stop thinking about it. I am obsessed.
"Why is Fig the way she is?"
"Why did Darius do that?"
"How did Jolene not see what was going on?"
That's one thing you can always get from a Tarryn Fisher book is contemplation...thoughts about what exactly you read. Read between the lines is the one bit of advice I can give you. It's never as it seems. Tarryn gets your brain thinking and the wheels start turning and they don't ever stop (not even after you stop reading.)
I read this book and found myself reading paragraphs, again and again, thinking "What? Is That Right?" I often thought there were gaps and holes in the storyline and I couldn't imagine that Tarryn would have such blatant mistakes throughout the book then I reminded myself "Louisa, this is Tarryn, these inconsistencies have meaning...give it time."
So I did that, I read and read and read. Many of those concerns were answered but many still remain, it's one of the many reasons, I so enjoy Tarryn Fisher books, she gets your mind thinking, contemplating, worrying. Just fantastic! Another fabulous, twisted, mind-bending book by Tarryn Fisher! Or as it's rumored...by Colleen Hoover. Whoever wrote it...I LOVED IT!
Rating 4.5 of 5 - I've never been more excited to read a Tarryn Fisher book than I was when I first heard about her new book, Bad Mommy. This book seems to have a slightly different tone than her other books that I've read and was excited to find out where she was taking the story. Early on I told a friend that it wasn't THAT twisted . . . YET. Oh, I just didn't even know. I love how her writing is both telling and deceptive and complicated all at the same time.
I read this for my book club and am looking forward to discussing, deciphering, and reliving this story with them.
