Summary: Oh gosh, this is such a hard one to summarize without giving anything away.
The main character’s name is Jule. She has the unique ability to easily take on identities. There’s also a character called Imogen, who has a special connection with Jule. That’s all I should really tell you.
Review: It’s been bumming me out that this book has been so badly reviewed. I’m a huge E. Lockhart fan; her books prominently influenced my feminism as a high schooler. Without her novels and my 12th grade English teacher, I would never have felt as free to be independent and opinionated. She writes very insightful stories about young women’s performances of gender and sexuality.
This is not my favorite E. Lockhart (that would be The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks - I love me some boarding school novels). I know this has also been accused of being a copy of The Talented Mr. Ripley, which I’ve never read. With that being said, I liked this story and enjoyed the unusual format. It always kept me guessing and leafing back and forth between pages to pick on subtle references or hints. Although the character of Jule is not likable, her voice is one that resonated with me in some ways, particularly when she discussed loneliness, hurt, or friendship. I didn’t end this book feeling hopeful or empathetic for Jule either, but she continually defies all the expectations set upon her and that’s what makes her a refreshing, dynamic character to me.
I hope that E. Lockhart continues to write more psychological thrillers in the future, as she is great at building excitement and suspense (We Were Liars fans know this too). I think what typifies an E. Lockhart novel is a character who grapples with a suffocating patriarchal culture and tries to become fully realized, self-sufficient person. With that trending theme, that makes any E. Lockhart book a must read for me.
I give Genuine Fraud a 4.00001 out of 5 stars!
When I read lockhart's work I don't want to miss a thing and I felt myself slowing the pace of my reading, which was worth it. Her work is the kind that I could go back through after reading a first time, and read again, still getting something new out of it in a re-reading.
This novel is full of suspense and intrigue. Jule is a character readers won't soon forget and the Single White Female vibe of the entire story and the way things are revealed makes this book un-put-down-able
