3.5/5 Stars.

This is a grim, nasty little psychological thriller. The kind of book that makes you feel like you need to take a bath after reading it. Ottessa Moshfegh’s protagonist is a despicable, pitiful woman who suddenly finds herself in the middle of a shocking crime. While the plot felt a bit contrived at certain points, the novel was at its core a fascinating and complex character study from a talented debut novelist.
