    One thought on “The Girl Before”

    1. Yes, daddy Yes No Please no I feel like somebody noted the success of books like Gone Girl and the success of Fifty Shades of Grey and thought wouldn t it be great if we had a book that combined the two No, actually No, it wouldn t.The Girl Before failed on so many levels, and I say that as a reluctant fan of these domestic thrillers I ve enjoyed everything from The Girl on the Train to last year s ridiculous but fast paced Behind Closed Doors I expected I d like this one too, but all I got was [...]

    2. I m tossing this one on the heaping pile of books that led me to believe they were worthy of comparisons to Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train, but left me disappointed instead Is this madness ever going to end Why can t a book be left to stand on it s own merits I guess it s my fault for giving in and picking up yet another Girl book Have no fear though, once again, I ve landed in the minority, as the reviews I ve seen have been overwhelming positive and apparently it s being made into a movie [...]

    3. My reviews can also be seen at deesradreadsandreviews.wordprThe Girl Before is a psychological thriller that is getting a lot of attention The movie rights have even been sold to Universal with Ron Howard to direct I didn t know any of that when I first read the description for the book I just thought it sounded like an entertaining read Please make a list of every possession you consider essential to your life One Folgate Street in London, is a high tech minimalist house with so many cool ameni [...]

    4. 1 Folgate Street is no ordinary house, it is cutting edge and won the Stirling Prize It is an example of extreme minimalism and incorporates the latest home technology It was originally designed by the techno architect Edward Monkton as his family home but his wife and son died there which means its now available for others to live Only there is the slight problem of over 200 conditions that have to be adhered to by whoever lives there And they have to be interviewed and approved by Monkton pers [...]

    5. 3.5 starsReally fast paced and captured my attention from beginning to end, but it tried a little hard to be too many different things I kept getting whiplash over all the But this And this Now this Jk this Look at me I m being shocking and twisty Unfortunately, this took away from what could have been a 5 star read for me Still enjoyable and would still recommend to the right reader Full review to come.

    6. 3.5The perfect home to lease Custom designed and built by a world renowned architect Every modern amenity one could possibly dream up some even beyond your imagination What s not to like Just one small hitch You must agree to the terms set forth by the architect Rules covering seemingly everything from A Z, regarding what may be brought into the apartment Not the least of which includes no pets or even children.Emma is looking for a safe haven Her last flat was broken into and ransacked while sh [...]

    7. Would you move into a house that has pages and pages of rules Where the questions ask you things that you couldn t live without Questions about everything person Also, you can t have kids pets make a mess Don t be so sure, because those rents are expensive This house, however has the latest and greatest gadgets going for it Like lights that automatically adjust to you, the water temps remember those perfect settings, and lots of little stuff like an app for your phone that controls the house You [...]

    8. Review was originally published on Through the Chapters BlogThis book was on my TBR for almost a year I expected it to be a very good psychological thriller since it was compared to the Gone Girl one of the most mind blowing books I have ever read Unfortunately, I wasn t only disappointed I was frustrated, and let me explain why.This story follows two women Emma and Jane, who wanted to escape the tragic events of their past, in order to begin a new life in a new apartment The narration rotates b [...]

    9. I am in the minority with my feelings about The Girl Before this book has received excellent reviews, but it just didn t work for me The premise is intriguing What if you had the opportunity to live in the perfect house designed by a famous architect for a low price The only catch is that the house will record data, and track your every move Also, the lease will have over 200 clauses, including such things as not leaving anything on the floor and no books allowed There will be the occasional qui [...]

    10. Update I just read that Ron Howard is going to direct the movie adaptation of this book I can t wait Wow Book slump averted A thriller has not made me this excited since Megan Miranda s All the Missing Girls The story is told in alternating chapters between Emma, the girl before, and Jane, the current tenant of a very unique flat While both women are searching for a living situation within their budgets in expensive London, their brokers both mention a possible solution One Folgate Street has be [...]

    11. 3 starsFor a book that is centered on a minimalist approach to life in a spare, modern home this story is a bit messy Oh, the irony Marie Kondo, where are you Clean up on aisle 5 I was immediately sucked in to the plot Most readers will identify with the depressing search for an affordable place to live that is also stylish and meets all of our must haves It doesn t exist What if you find out that there is a gorgeous modern home available for very little moolah It has everything State of the art [...]

    12. I received a copy of The Girl Before through NetGalley for an honest review My thanks to Ballantine Books and to J.P Delaney for the opportunity.To control or to be controlled w that is the question.The Girl Before has wicked cogs in the wheel than a jacked up Monster truck in high gear And that wheel keeps turning and turning throughout the entire story Some days that wheel grinds in the down and dirty Some days it revs up speed and gains relentless traction.Emma Matthews lives in the once upo [...]

    13. 3.5 STARS One Folgate Street is a state of the art award winning property The rent is pretty reasonable too, but it s tenants must be prepared to give up all their possessions no books, throws, cushions, photos, no personal effects, nothing except the bare minimum of clothes Then there are the other rules hundreds of them, seemingly waiting to trip you up, catch you unawares There are also regular questions to answer, very personal and intrusive questions The fact is, whoever becomes this proper [...]

    14. If I am rating this solely on my review rating system this book gets no than 2 stars from me It was just okay and for the most part it wasn t an enjoyable read for me I listened to the audio version of this book and what I did really like though was the narrators as it was performed very well by Emilia Fox, Finty Williams, and Lisa Aagaard Knudsen.While the premise of THE GIRL BEFORE by J.P DELANEY did sound quite intriguing to me and there was definitely something about this book that did hold [...]

    15. This book is very manipulative and, clearly, deceptive.If that bothers you and if you generally dislike far fetched cases I suggest you read something less convoluted By manipulative, I mean you re than pushed into liking specific characters and disliking others So you do that But despite having your thoughts about characters shaped by the author, you re still manipulated some as the story progresses I don t exactly like when that happens I prefer to be exposed to all facets of someone s perso [...]

    16. You can make your surroundings as polished and empty as you like But it doesn t really matter if you re still messed up inside 3.5 Though it did have it s twists and turns it wasn t as good as Gone Girl or Girl on the Train to me.

    17. 2.5 stars What a let down this book was and its being made into a movie I don t get it The most intriguing part of this book was the creepy techy house

    18. A unique house with a particular landlord, they say A restrictive covenant, but affordable A lot of rules, a harrowing application process Only if you think it is worth it.One Folgate Street It was built by a techno minimalist architect named Edward Monkford There is an intense 200 question application, a face to face interview with the ones Edward personally approves, and even then.ey rarely get the lease And if you do, you have to live by strict rules and adapt to this minimalist lifestyle It [...]

    19. I enjoyed the format of the storyline short paragraphs alternating between then and now Emma and Jane It was a clever way to keep the reader focused I thought the plot was very creative and, of course, the ending was a total surprise Also, after being officially named a Cover Girl, how about that beautifully intriguing cover That, alone, makes you want to buy it.This book is going to make a fabulous movie While reading it, I kept visualizing the sleek, totally automated house and all the charact [...]

    20. Second ReadingThis is my first time reading the entire book, as I had only previously read a sampler The sampler measured in as 17% of the total book, which is quite lengthy portion and definitely had my intrigue piqued There are so many physiological thrillers available today that sell themselves as in the style of Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins Very few actually come close to living up to the powerhouses in this genre This book, however, deserves to sit beside them This dark and brooding tale [...]

    21. The Girl Before by J.P Delaney is a 2017 Ballantine publication I m just loving these imaginative psychological thrillers coming out recently While this appears to be a debut novel, this author apparently has some experience with crime writing, having written this book under a pseudonym I wish I knew who the crime writer is but I suppose that s a mystery for another day In the meantime, I hear this book might be the basis for a movie, and Ron Howard would be the director So, if that isn t enough [...]

    22. I went into this book with a very open mind It didn t gel with a lot of people and I respect that This book is as much about a house from its history to its construction to the contract to live in it as it is about the characters In alternating viewpoints from Emma then and Jane now it s an unraveling of what mysteries and secrets this house holds It was a suspenseful read with the loose ends tied up in the end But as long as the house stands, this will be a never ending story.

    23. Overhyped and underwhelmed.Honestly, I should ve known better I mean, first of all, it had the word Girl in the title, which was a clue that it would be bandwaggoning the tail end of a trend And then, once I finished reading it, I found Emily May s review that made the connection between this book and Fifty Shades of Grey.Here is a list of all of the things I hated about this book 1 Edward His character was completely unconvincing I haven t read FSoG and I have no plans to do so However, that bo [...]

    24. The Girl Before is a psychological thriller from JP Delaney, a pseudonym for a writer who has previously written bestselling fiction under other names A film version is being brought to the screen by Academy Award winning director Ron Howard and I am sure this will prove to be one of the hits of 2017.The story focuses on the property 1 Folgate Street,this is no ordinary house, it is state of the art and won the Stirling Prize It has the latest home technology and was designed by architect Edward [...]

    25. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum Look at here it s another addition to the category of .And when Ron Howard buys the rights to your novel before it even gets published you don t even have to pussyfoot around This one gets compared in the blurb to both Gone Girl and The Girl On The Train Two stories which have absolutely nothing in common, but who gives a shit right Those name drops sell themselves Per usual when it comes to these if you loved ______________, you ll really love this compar [...]

    26. This was an entertaining, compulsive read, and I loved it I read it as quickly as I could because I had to know what was going to happen.This book follows two women, Jane, in the present, and Emma, in the past There are alternating chapters, so their stories move along together They each rent a house, One Folgate Street, in London.Jane becomes almost obsessed with finding out what happened to Emma, when she lived at the address, and Emma herself is telling her story Both women are recovering fro [...]

    27. SUCH A STRANGE BOOK I read the first 20% of the book in like half an hour and found it super addicting and intriguing, and then suddenly it took such a weird turn and it totally lost me It was still a super quick read, but I m just mad it didn t turn out to be an amazing book, because the premise was so intriguing My main problems ended up being with the writing, and the way the author tried to pack as many twists as possible that it just seemed way too orchestrated Also, the book is told throug [...]

    28. 3.5 starsThe setting in The Girl Before may be questionable and wholeheartedly ridiculous, but it created a very interesting backdrop to an equally interesting relationship dynamic between the female lead Jane and her OCD controlling landlord, along with the mystery of what happened to the girl before Emma Both of these women share alternating POV s which allows the reader some insight into the characters and various other elements within the story The Girl Before has mixed reviews and I can see [...]

    29. Ron Howard already has his hands on this book so my advice to you hurry up and pre order this one so you can have it read before it s out in theaters If you want to find out who The Girl Before is you ll have to get on this fast ride and endure some whiplashing turnsI ll bet it won t be who you think it is, though you meet her early on, and overlook her in a way I thought I knew within the first few chapters, but I was wrong and I m not telling, sorry.One Folgate Street seems to be the perfect p [...]

    30. This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life.I really enjoyed this page turner of a novel I went into the book without a lot of expectations I decided to read this book based on the summary which sounded like it had the making of a good thriller It turns out that I was hooked by the story almost immediately and found myself doing that thing where I promise that I will read just one chapter and before I knew it, I had read half the book This books tells two stories from two different ti [...]
