I couldn’t stop reading Unraveling Oliver. This book grabbed my attention with exceptionally vivid characters and a fast twisting plot. We start with Oliver, who has just beaten his wife Alice into a coma. Yes, that is the start of the story!! The format of the novel goes from past to present and into multiple points of view, but I had no problem following along. We live and learn about the characters as they fall in love, come out of the closet, struggle with a mentally challenged family member. But mostly as readers we keep wondering: Why? Why would Oliver do this? If you liked The Woman in Cabin 10 or The Girl on the Train you’ll like Unraveling Oliver.
