Insomnia: A Novel

We rated this book:


Emma has the perfect life: the two kids, a loving husband, and a high-paying career. But Emma is about to turn forty in a couple of days and is beginning to suffer from Insomnia. Normally, that wouldn’t be a big deal, however, Emma’s mother went crazy just before her fortieth birthday, attempting to kill her sister, and it began with insomnia as well. As Emma begins to experience all the same symptoms as her mother all those years ago, she will have to decide what’s real and what’s not. Is it possible this madness runs in her family, or is there some bigger picture she has yet to discover? Emma needs to figure it out quickly before she puts her own family in danger.

I enjoyed this Sarah Pinborough thriller much more than the last one. Knowing how insomnia can make you paranoid and hallucinate made it all the more exciting as Emma struggles with reality. The difficulties with everyone around her add to the drama, as they all begin to think she’s mad as well. Overall, a fun psychological thriller to read during this cold season where the holidays can make us all a little crazy.
