    I've been guilty of reuesting a book without reading the blurbI mean not one little bitI see an author I know that I enjoy and “click“ goes the reuest button Typically I receive my standard formulary thriller Some better than others but in the end all falling into the same patternWelllet me tell you about the shock on my face as I started in on this read uickly realizing that finally the mold was officially broken😳 What if you found the perfect wifecould you really just let her go?Five stars for originality This was one of the most ingenious uniue thrillers I’ve read all year I’m not going to add anything about the premise here Trust me go in as blind as possible You can thank me laterIf you’re looking for something different able to keep an open mind and suspend your believability Look no further This is a must read this summer for you A shocking buddy read with Susanne Neither one of us had a clue what was in store for us Thank you to NetGalley Random House Publishing Group Ballantine and JP Delaney for an ARC to read and review

    TWO STARSSorry guys I wanted to like this one I tried I did Lots of Goodreads friends are loving this one Out of JP Delaney’s three novels I have only given thumbs up for one of them JP Delaney is a slick operator when it comes to injecting a cool vibe into his novels Unfortunately for me that cool factor comes at an expense His characters are as flat as cardboard and I struggle to generate any feelings one way or the other about them I was so tired of being told how “hot” and “sexy” Abbie is Okay I get it She’s hot Husband Tim is a jerk All the players wear their labels right on their sleeves Nothing insightful to find hereIt’s not that I don’t love the unusual sci fi subject matter I’m all here for Artificial Intelligence bots I love me some WESTWORLD The first 10% of The Perfect Wife is thrilling and different I was immediately hooked The next 80%? Very slow Turns into a run of the mill missing wife mystery and despite the robot thing it feels generic I enjoyed the last 10% Finally some actionDelaney touches on so many themes but it is all superficial We have robots vs humans art vs technology autism human soul #metoo movement sexism in Silicon valley Blah blah blahMy one last complaint The novel is written from a second and third person POV an omniscient narrator I found this distracting since it changed without notice and it has the effect of putting the reader even further away from the action It reads like a voyeur or a group is stalking Abbie and reporting everything on paper It is weird and I don't understand why Delaney went with itHey please don’t let me deter you from The Perfect Wife I seem to be an outlier on this one Thank you to Netgalley for my advanced galley All opinions are mine

    The Perfect Wife by JP Delaney is a 2019 Ballantine publication Ingenious I had no idea what I was getting into when I started reading this book I did not realize it had a sci fi element in it but I’m glad I chose it without picking up on that because otherwise I might have passed on it The author has constructed a very clever premise in which Abbie who suddenly awakes unsure of herself or her surroundings believes she must have been in an accident of some kind However she soon learns from her husband Tim that she is a ‘companion robot’ made in the image of his dead wife She begins to piece together memories and information from the 'real' Abbie as she attempts to connect with her autistic son and be the perfect wife to Tim What ensues is an intelligent and darkly imaginative look the conseuences of technology and the possibility of robotic feelings of empathy and maybe even accountability Some of the characters are almost satirical but the story is still wildly original As the mystery deepens so do the complexities and the various and often surprising emotions that develop with the story The format is also uniue with both first and second person narratives which paves the way for an incredibly shocking revelation that made my jaw drop openOverall I really liked this book It was shocking and gave my brain a nice workout and was a nice change of pace for me 4 stars

    JP Delaney establishes his reputation for intelligent complex thought provoking beautifully written psychological thrillers with his latest offering It is a blend of AI with its spectacular groundbreaking cutting edge scientific breakthroughs and family drama with its sinister and creepy overtones that drive the narrative Simultaneously it asks some of the deepest philosophical uestions of ethics and morality what it is to be human and the uestion of what it is that comprises our identity Abbie is the eponymous 'perfect wife' with its echoes of the Stepford Wives who awakens in hospital after 5 years with no memories of who she is and how she came to be here The man beside her tells her she is his perfect wife and wonderful mother to their autistic son Danny and the victim of a dreadful accident five years ago He tells her he wants them to be together forever Can Abbie trust him and his version of events?Tim Scott is a Silicon Valley tech CEO a powerful man and billionaire a socially awkward and tyrannical personality who makes impossible demands of his workforce Abbie is the polar opposite of Tim she is a free spirited and impulsive stunningly beautiful and artistically creative Strangely hired by Tim as an artist in residence her art serves as a social and uestioning commentary on Tim's flawed and damaging management style but surprisingly he is not put out or angered by this In fact the two end up getting married and whilst I know the trope of opposites attracting has a strong foundation in truth I must admit I struggled to see Tim as a an attractive proposition for any woman with few traits that could contribute to him being suitable marriage material Still it takes all sorts to make the world and they have a son although there are what might be the expected differences of opinions and perspectives within their marriage on the autistic Danny and his future and upbringing Delaney introduces the reader to the extraordinary concept of the cobot the phenomena of AI developments in learning and development and to the contradictory notion that AI might give us a humane 'human' juxtaposing this with the human 'inhumanity' of Tim This an intense and compulsive read that takes the reader into the scary possibilities in technological developments that do not necessarily feel that far fetched Interweaved with this is the family drama and intrigue a story of twists and turns surprising the reader time and time again This is a suspenseful novel which poses some fundamental uestions touching on misogyny the nature of marriage family autism what it is to be a parent and asks just how desirable is it to chase the goal of 'perfection'? A fascinating and highly engaging read Many thanks to uercus for an ARC
