Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough Book Summary


The instant New York Times and #1 international bestseller. “You should read Behind Her Eyes…It’s bloody brilliant.” —Stephen King

"An eerie thriller…Pinborough keeps us guessing about just who’s manipulating whom – until the ending reveals that we’ve been wholly complicit in this terrifying mind game.” —The New York Times Book Review

Why is everyone talking about the ending of Sarah Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes?

Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she’s thrilled she finally connected with someone.

When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar…who says the kiss was a terrible mistake, but who still can’t keep his eyes off Louise.

And then Louise bumps into Adele, who’s new to town and in need of a friend. But she also just happens to be married to David. And if you think you know where this story is going, think again, because Behind Her Eyes is like no other book you’ve read before.

David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife. But then why is David so controlling? And why is Adele so scared of him?

As Louise is drawn into David and Adele’s orbit, she uncovers more puzzling questions than answers. The only thing that is crystal clear is that something in this marriage is very, very wrong. But Louise can’t guess how wrong—and how far a person might go to protect their marriage’s secrets.

In Behind Her Eyes, Sarah Pinborough has written a novel that takes the modern day love triangle and not only turns it on its head, but completely reinvents it in a way that will leave readers reeling.

MisleadingWithout giving too much away, the ending was a huge disappointment. Not a great read throughout, but I stuck with it. Now I'm so disappointed I did..Score: 1/5

Had Me GoingI have to admit that I didn’t see it coming, although, I do think the story could have been told in a shorter amount of time. The 4 star rating is because I’m not sure I cared for the ending. This has nothing to with anything other than how I connected with the characters involved. Other than being repetitive, the author did engage me...and fool me...that was a major plus for me..Score: 4/5

Unthinkably twistedBehind Her Eyes is an extremely engrossing read, once you’ve gotten to know the characters. This is a story about three people: Adele, David, and Louise. Adele is obsessively in love with and married to David. David and Louise, who are mad for each other, are carrying on a sordid affair behind his wife’s back. As if this wasn’t complicated enough, Adele and Louise are new best friends. In a love triangle, only 2 people can win. Sarah Pinborough is a new to me author. Psychological thrillers are not my usual genre to read and I’m slowly branching out to reading authors from other countries. That being said, this book was slow to read at the beginning. I’m not used to reading books written from multiple points of view. You read from the perspective of both Adele and Louse. You also get flashbacks to Adele’s past. Once I got a feel for the characters, I couldn’t put it down. I had to keep reading to find out how everything unfolded. Behind Her Eyes reminded me a bit of Gone Girl, in that the main character is smart and has been planning for the end game meticulously. Your feelings towards her completely flip flop by the end of the story. Oh my goodness what an ending. I had to read the final chapter twice. I received ARC of this book. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own..Score: 5/5

Page turnerThe ending was so crazy and unexpected!!.Score: 5/5

MIND BLOWN! Just read it!MIND BLOWN by "Behind her eyes" by Sara Pinborough! Second half of the book u really want to finish it to find out all of the secrets! You will NEVER expect what happens! Love a good dramatic twist for the grand finale! Crazy! Never thought I would be into mystery/ thrillers😳 Tiny hint of creepy/ messed up, but not to Scary! Check it out! Easy read once you get used to the chapters flip flopping between the two main characters perspectives!!! #newlyanerd #bookwormlife #doit although I do agree they could have made this 50/70 pages shorter, dragged a little...but I can appreciate the detail now that I have finished. Big tip: a friend told me not to skim over the "then" chapters when I told her I wasn't particularly a fan of them in the beginning! But YES they DO become quite important to the story about half way through!!!.Score: 5/5

TwistyJust when I thought I had everything figured out and put into place, the twisted end threw me for a loop. Probably one of my favorite book endings thus far. Great read enjoyed the entire book and the cleverness of it all..Score: 5/5

Seriously? :( what a cop outI was so excited about this book and up until the last third I wasn’t disappointed :( it could have been really great, but unless you like thrillers that involve the supernatural it’s a huge let down. It’s enough of a buzz kill when the twists in a book aren’t entirely realistic, but this is so much more annoying than that. The book is set in modern day real-world London building you up for some really promising twists over 10 hours... only for that all come down to this goofy semi-magical and 100% physically impossible premise. I got the gist of where it was headed about two thirds in, but I just figured it was a clever way to throw me off the scent of what would end up being a really great natural explanation... nope! It was even more implausible and silly than I feared. Such a let down.Score: 2/5

Couldn’t put this down!! INSANEJust when you think you’ve got this thrilling harrowing and insanely addictive story figured out- think again. I couldn’t have imagined the outcome if I’d spent months attempting to. I’m GOBSMACKED. All I can say is BRAVA!! This is one thriller you won’t be able to wrap your brain around long after the book is finished. I’m still reeling from the ingenuity of this authors talent, cleverness and extraordinarily DIFFERENT aspects of this work of art and it’s ending. It is like none other. Trust that..Score: 5/5

Behind her eyesGreat writer but ridiculously lame story. Yes the two are possible..Score: 2/5

Behind Her EyesA good book, the overall premise is certainly unique. The plot and story lines developed nicely through the book, as did the characters. There were enough twists and turns to keep you guessing, sometimes on the edge of your seat. My only criticism of the book is that it seems about 1/3 longer than it needs to be. There is a lot of detailed daily life descriptions that I don't think need to be there and possibly too many character scenes interacting about and then remembering the same thing once the character is known. As such it dragged a bit particularly in the middle, but with some strong editing it could be five stars..Score: 4/5

DisappointedRead the entire book only to be so disappointed with cop-out ending.Score: 2/5

GREAT book.Couldn’t put this book down. Loved it from start to finish. You can really hear the characters voices and emotions throughout. Perfectly paced, and a whirlwind of an ending..Score: 5/5

Captivating. Thrilling. Mesmerizing.This book is an amazing read!!.Score: 5/5

Unrealistic endingThe plot kept me reading but the ending was disappointing..Score: 4/5

Ridiculous conceptThe book was well written and kept my attention until I realized how stupid the concept was that tied it together. Really a shame as she is a good writer. She took the lazy way out to solve the mystery..Score: 2/5
