I imagine it must be very aggravating to have your work constantly compared (or combined) with someone else's work. The Other Typist by Susan Rindell has been described as "Hitchcock meets the Great Gatsby" or "If you liked Gone Girl..." Who knows. Maybe it's flattering. Being likened to Hitchcock is never a bad thing. The only reason to compare it to Gatsby is because it is set in the 1920s. (Maybe this says more about the reviewer than the book being reviewed.) I enjoyed The Other Typist all on its own standing. It was a lovely ride with some fun "Wait, what?! Ok, this Rose chick has a few cracks in her sidewalk" moments that draw you deeper into the madness... I mean story. ;-)
(And to answer the comparison 'If you liked Gone Girl...', I wouldn't know. I only saw the movie.)
Read any good books lately?
I read more than just classic novels. This is where I post about recent books I have read. Have you read the same book? Got a different opinion? Let me know! I'd love to hear about it.
