I did not enjoy this novel at all. Both main characters are both protagonists and antagonists. This was a sad and depressing book that I ever had read. However, this is only fiction, but it does bring up major topics about the psychology of a marriage. Anyways, I do admire how this was written and presented as well as understand why it was popular. Not only because the novel was turned into a movie but for its plotline. At least it was clear as the plot progressed that neither narrators were reliable as they both were incompetent to tell the story.
