Mini Review: Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan

February 4, 2018

”But the truth is, women are often scared of antagonizing their assailants or they feel conflicted; not so very long ago they may have been charmed by them. And we women aim to please. It is hardwired into us that we should placate and mollify---bend our will to that of men. Oh, some of us have fought against that, and we’re seen as hard-nosed, difficult, assertive, shrewish. We pay the penalty. Why don’t I have a proper, live-in partner? It’s not just because I’m unsure if I can trust anyone sufficiently. It’s because I refuse to compromise. I refuse to woman up, you might say.”

-Sarah Vaughan, Anatomy of a Scandal

Yay, another book worth the hype!! I am so happy that I enjoyed Anatomy of a Scandal as much as most readers seem to, because a lot of books that received this much attention have ended up being a bit disappointing for me lately. This was not only very timely in its subject matter, but it was so character driven, which I loved! Also, the writing was really good, definitely a cut above the typical psychological thriller. I don't want to say much about the plot for fear of spoiling it for anyone, but I was hooked from start to finish. Sarah Vaughan has found herself another fan. Can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
