An instant best seller!

New York Times best-selling author Tarryn Fisher delivers a pulse-pounding, fast-paced suspense novel that will leave you breathless. A thriller you won’t be able to put down!

"You’ll have whiplash until the very end." (Colleen Hoover, New York Times best-selling author)

Thursday’s husband, Seth, has two other wives. She’s never met them, and she doesn’t know anything about them. She agreed to this unusual arrangement because she’s so crazy about him.

But one day, she finds something. Something that tells a very different - and horrifying - story about the man she married.

What follows is one of the most twisted, shocking thrillers you’ll ever hear.

You’ll have to listen to find out why.

"Nail-biting, heart-clenchingly good." (Alexandra Torre, New York Times best-selling author)

"[A] lightning-fast plot." (Kirkus)

"Suspense fans will be rewarded." (Publishers Weekly)

"Some sharp twists." (Booklist)

What a story!!

I don't even know what to say or how to review this book. I expected a story that was a bit off the rails but The Wives was off the rails and was set in fire! I am beyond floored. The first 50% of the story was a nice set up and showing you this nice neat box. Ha! Tarryn Fisher must not like nice or neat because she took that box and played basketball ball with it and then set it on fire. Everything I thought I knew, I didn't. I mean, woah!

The narration by Lauren Fortgang was amazing. She portrayed Thursday to a T. Her narration mixed with the way Mrs. Fisher writes was stunning. It came to life. Just a very messed up life that will shock all listeners!!!

Awful.

This book made me angry. The depiction of the female as weak and useless is off putting and to use mental illness in this way is really quite lazy and despicable. Don’t waste a credit.

Seriously?

This book had so much potential... but the ending was ridiculous. Sort of like when you wrote stories for school in the fifth grade and ended it with "and it was all a dream" when you dont know what else to do. Nine hours of my life that I will never get back. Narration, however, was very good - can't blame her for reading a terrible book.

Spoiler: she’s crazy. About a boy. I am so tired of this kind of novel and it’s not interesting in the slightest

I love a book that has me excited and makes me want to discuss it the entire time I'm listening. This one had me coming up with all kinds of theories and that ending was perfect along with the narration! Can't wait for bookclub so I can talk about it with others!

Unbelievable

Not a very believable story. Watch out for the crude language if the constant F bombs are not your style in books. Not sure why I finished it. This book is a reminder to myself to check out the author and see what other books they have written before deciding to read one of their books.

Frustrating with a satisfying ending

I loved this story, it had my on the edge of my seat the whole time I was listening (in almost an anxiety enduring way). Towards the end of the book I started getting really disappointed by the way it was ending, but the few minutes left me very satisfied for the main character.

What the ACTUAL......!?!

Oh my lanta! What did I just listen too?!?

This is by far one of the most effed up books I’ve listened to in quite awhile. In the MOST delicious way! In true Tarryn fashion, she hooks you, reals you in, and kills you slowly.

I really thought I knew how this book was going, I was wrong. So very wrong.

The twists turns one takes on the journey to the end of this book are without a doubt, jarring. Be prepared for gasps, hand to mouth in astonishment, and lots of OMGs.

So far, this is my favorite Tarryn Fisher book....and I’ve read all of them.

Whether you buy a hard copy, an ebook, or choose to listen to it like I did, this is a MUST read!!

Wow

This is one crazy psychological thriller. It leads you down one path only to twist in another direction, you get comfortable then bam it goes bizarre. Dark, gritty, and unforgettable I have the feeling I will be thinking about this story, especially the ending for days to come.
Lauren did an excellent job narrating.

Don’t believe the good reviews.

This book is extremely annoying and not worth your time. Had I known it had to do with mental illness warping reality, I would have done a hard pass.

Messed with - my head is!

I daren't look in the mirror, just in case I have my head on inside out and upside down. This book will mess with your mind, big time. As the story unfolds, you realise all the things you thought you knew, you, in fact, didn't know at all. Actually, everything is rearranged and nothing is where you thought it should be, no one is who you think they are and I've been keeping a sharp eye on the sun, in case it starts rising in the North and setting in the South. It may be that I'm now going downstairs instead of upstairs to bed, night is definitely not following day and two wrongs suddenly do make a right. This book will take every assumption you ever made about polygamy and polygamists and turn it into a 6 foot white rabbit called Harvey who will follow you around everywhere but no one will be able to see him except you. And, here's the crux of the matter, all this back to front, upside down, inside outedness will feel completely right and you're going to love it. Confused? Listen to The Wives by Tarryn Fisher and all will be clear. 5 moons from me!

Great and Unusual Psychological Thriller

I really enjoyed this book, it was quite a different plot from the usual psychological thriller. A story about polygamy and betrayal, I was gripped and did not see the end twist. I will look out for this author's next book

It was OK...

It was quite long winded and could have been cut a little shorter. What I liked about it was that you don't know who to trust all the way through the story.

Excellent start, then takes a swerve.

Before I bought this title I read the reviews and it seems to be divisive; in general people love it or hate it whereas I didn’t feel strongly either way.

The story starts well, the first half of the novel is pacey, the protagonists and their lives are well described and there is the right balance of information and action to engage the listener.

Then halfway through the book takes a sudden swerve. I appreciate a good plot twist but this is just odd. From there onwards the story takes lots of twists and turns, the story telling stays strong, which holds everything together and it stays listenable. In contrast to the first half of novel which was well planned and considered its as though the author had loads of ideas and just threw them out. Yes, a good plot twist can really make a story unforgettable but this had so many that it seemed unnecessary and overdone.

Still, it is worth listening to and could have been an unforgettable novel if the second half of the story had maintained the pace and plot development of the first half.

Tense and unpredictable

I really enjoyed this book.
I thought I’d figured out the plot several times but I hadn’t. The story kept me guessing all the way through.
This would make a great film!

Mixed Bag

I did enjoy this book but found the ending to be..mehhh. It might just do it for some but for me left me feeling silly for supporting her all the way. There didnt seem to be any reason explored for why some of these characters acted the way they did. Maybe its me that just missed it, but there you have it
The narration was excellent however.

Satisfying

I enjoyed the story however I found the writer was too long winded and over descriptive. I found myself loosing interest and fast forwarding a lot of the irrelevant text to get to the actual story line.

Couldn’t stop listening

I really got into this book. The characters and storyline drew me in but I had to listen through headphones as it wasn’t suitable for my children to catch and earful of. I actually wasn’t disappointed by the ending.

Disappointing

I can handle the repetitive phrasing. However it was disappointing and frustrating that it isn’t about what it says it’s about. Easy cop out ‘twist’.

What happened

Twisty turny, I didn't know what to think. Really good storyline/plot. Final 30% felt rushed though. I feel the reader could have been given further and more complex explanation and finality.
