Book Review: "I Killed Zoe Spanos"


Image Credit: (c) I Killed Zoe Spanos (2020), written by Kit Frick.


I loved this book, and I'm glad I chose to listen to the audiobook version because it made the story more intriguing, eerier, and full of angst. I thought of a few theories, but I guess most of them were wrong. At least that's the good thing about books, they have proven to be unpredictable in nature.



Image Credit: (c) Fight Club (1999). This is the owner's favourite movie, and even he was somewhat surprised with the "twist" towards the end of the plot. It makes for good story-telling.


I was right about one of the theories. It makes sense, Zoe and Anna were connected. I didn't see the way Zoe died coming and you didn't know what killed her until the very last chapter. This book had me on the edge of my seat, and the podcast episodes made the story even more thrilling.


I liked how Anna was unreliable due to her "black outs", and what she thought happened was very different. With that in mind, the concept of an unreliable narrator has been used in writing for quite some time. Most notably, Truman Capote often used in during his life-time.


Book Rating: 4/5
