Insomnia by Sarah Pinborough

The new psychological thriller is getting great reviews.

It’s an “unreliable narrator” piece.

Sadly, it didn’t work for me. The plot is interesting, but was too painfully drawn out for too long.

Not one of the main characters held any appeal.

Emma is quickly approaching her 40th birthday — the same age her mother was when she began having trouble sleeping.

As she struggles with intergenerational trauma and balancing 10 hour days as a successful lawyer with life with her family life, Emma’s situation spirals into a dangerous and intense tale.

Without sleep, is Emma hallucinating? Or is she going mad?

On the other hand, if you liked all the other psychological thrillers — Girl on a Train, for example — you’ll likely enjoy this one, as well.
