Book: Someone Like You

Author: Becky Alexander

Thank you NetGalley and Dreamscape Select for an advanced audio copy. 

Someone Like You was a roller coaster for me, but not in the typical sense you expect a thriller to be. This was a rollercoaster because it had an excellent premise that I was drawn in by but then the book seemed like something different. Once I came to terms with this book not being what I was expecting, I really enjoyed it.

The story follows Jemima. Jemima is an aspiring actress and she gets the role of a lifetime. She is in play with a famous actress and director for her first real role. There were some shady characters and some events that happened that would make this a thriller but it lacked the excitement thrillers typically bring. I was at first disappointed but then I got invested in Jemima‚Äôs life and the whole off-Broadway experience. This reads a lot more like a drama than a thriller. 

If you have any interest in the life of a stage actor this book is extremely interesting, just do not go in expecting a fast thriller. 

Final Score 4/5
