The Worst Thing I've Done is not the worst thing I've read. It doesn't even come close. It's also not the best thing I've read. I loved the author's riveting Stones From the River, so I expected to love this story just as much. This book tells the story of Annie and Mason and Jake and Opal. A triangle, with a little girl in the center. There's a suicide and guilt and the intimate details of the lifelong friendship and a marriage, all the makings a story I am sure to love.
Since I love to hear everyone's side of the story, I enjoyed the alternating points of view from the different characters. But, somehow, even though everyone gets a chance to tell her, or his, own story, somehow I walked away feeling like I really didn't know any of the characters all that well. And I like to get to know characters intimately.
And I would've preferred a little twist in the ending.
Still, I thought it was a pretty good read. I kept turning pages - waiting to see what was the Worst Thing Annie ever did. That alone, for a fan of reality tv, made the read interesting enough to keep going.
