Thank you to Ballantine Books and NetGalley for sending me an electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Abbie awakens in a daze with no memory of who she is or how she landed in this unsettling condition. The man by her side claims to be her husband. He’s a titan of the tech world, the founder of one of Silicon Valley’s most innovative start-ups. He tells Abbie that she is a gifted artist, an avid surfer, a loving mother to their young son, and the perfect wife. He says she had a terrible accident five years ago and that, through a huge technological breakthrough, she has been brought back from the abyss.
She is a miracle of science.
But as Abbie pieces together memories of her marriage, she begins questioning her husband’s motives–and his version of events. Can she trust him when he says he wants them to be together forever? And what really happened to Abbie half a decade ago?

I read this in less than 24 hours that’s how good it was.
Holy Moly was this a fantastic book. I read this book in less than a day. It complexly sucked me in right from the beginning. And I literally could not put it down.
The book is told in the second person, and on two different timelines. While some authors would not be able to do this without simply confusing readers, XX does it in a way that not only makes it clear what is going on, but it somehow adds to the story.
This book kept me guessing from the very beginning and I loved every minute of it. There is. West World feel to this as a robot is essentially the main character. And much like West World, you are made to wonder just what makes something human.
I cannot recommend this thought-provoking thriller enough!
