Description

As Josie strike up a conversation in the ladies room she realizes not only were they born on the same day…but in the same hospital. One of the women is a podcaster and the small piece of information about being birthday twins starts a relationship that is faster than a runaway locomotive. But Josie seems more interested in being part of Alix’s seemingly glamorous life than she is in fixing her own, and when three people end up dead and Alix’s life is turned upside down, the evidence points to Josie—and turns the TV series into a murder mystery.

The paths of two women – Alix Summer and Josie Fair – cross when they are out celebrating their birthdays in the same restaurant.As Alix digs deeper, she begins to question her new friend’s motives for meeting her in the first place, and through a series of reversals, comes to fear she’s been set up in a twisted game of cat and mouse. First off, I am the last person to be excited by the premise of a true crime podcast/documentary/Netflix show etc.

Instead of feeling threatened, Alix decides to feature Josie on a podcast about the lives of ordinary women. I’ve listened to a few weird true crime podcasts over the years, but don’t get much time to listen to audio as part of my day to day life. None of This is True is a psychological thriller about two women who, through a chance encounter, learn they are birthday twins.We learn about Kate’s possibly stalling career and Leo’s plan to apply to acting schools against his mother’s wishes. With the story unfinished, the narrative unfolds in the present tense, with prose that jingles like song lyrics: “He turns to see if the girl is behind him, and sees her wishy-washy, wavy-wavy, in double vision through the glass windows of the hotel.

I am a huge fan of Lisa Jewell, and this was right up there in terms of thrill, fast pace, plot, writing style and characterisation – yes but that doesn’t mean I liked the characters. The plot twists, turns and barrels it’s way at a fast pace to a good ending which isn’t neatly sewn up but which feels real as, let’s face it, life frequently isn’t tied up in a pretty bow. In 2019, “Birthday Twins” Alix Summers and Josie Fair meet for the first time on their forty–fifth birthday in a pub where they have both come to celebrate- Alix with her husband and friends and Josie with her husband. I loved the structure of the novel, which is presented from the perspectives of Josie and Alix with transcripts of the podcast interviews (featuring Josie, Alix and several other characters) interspersed throughout the narrative.

The supporting cast of narrators that lent their gifted voices to the ‘podcasts’ were phenomenal as well! However, for the plot as a whole this was excellent and whilst not entirely surprising, it was unpredictable which maintained the tension in the story. If you add in bad vibes, off notes and some weird and uncomfortable situations that your reactions switch between sadness, concern and shock in equal measure. When Josie proposes she be a guest on Alix's podcast to tell the story of her life, Alix is curious about this strange woman. One of them is Alix Summers; famous podcaster promoting aspiring women who take their second changes for life to achieve bigger things.
