In this "smart and devious" New York Times bestselling thriller, a marriage counselor's relationship begins to unravel when the mother of her son's classmate is murdered (The New York Times). The inspiration for the HBO series The Undoing, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant.

Grace Reinhart Sachs is living her best life. Devoted to her husband, a pediatric oncologist at a major cancer hospital, their young son Henry, and the patients she sees in her therapy practice, her days are full of familiar things. Grace is also the author of a book You Should Have Known, in which she cautions women to really hear what men are trying to tell them.

But weeks before the book is published a chasm opens in her own life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only an ongoing chain of terrible revelations, leading her to dismantle her life in order to create a new one, lest she allow these disasters to destroy her.

This is an excellent book. I haven't seen the film adaptation,and if I do I'll approach it as a separate work. Ever since Agatha Christie, books have been mangled in these adaptations. I've never been involved in the film industry, so I can't judge such practices, but I suppose there are justifications for them, but their ethics are obviously questionable. However, there's no question that in seeing the films and ignoring the original books, the consumer misses the creative genius of the author. In this case, that's sad.

I went back and forth between the audio book and the physical book. Mainly because the narrator’s choices for certain characters kind of got on my nerves. But there were so many different voices that they had to do that I can cut her some slack. I also wanted to read this before the series finale on HBO and I’m both pleasantly surprised and disappointed that the show and book at so vastly different. I didn’t enjoy the ending but it was a very realistic ending.
