A Good Father By Catherine Talbot

A Good Father By Catherine Talbot

Des is a good husband, a good father – a good man.

He encourages his wife’s artistic endeavours, reads bedtime stories to his children every night, and holds down a well-paid, if unfulfilling, job.

But appearances can be deceptive. Lately, his wife seems to be forgetting that her art is for his eyes only. And rumours at work are threatening his reputation as a devoted family man. And he can’t help but feel that his kids don’t seem to need him as much as they once did.

Des is afraid.
Afraid of the world encroaching on his home.
Afraid of past mistakes catching up on him.

So afraid of losing control over his family that he is contemplating the unthinkable.

My Thoughts:

This is the story of Des and his family, I found straight away that I wasn’t a big fan of Des he seemed to have a control over his wife that I didn’t like. I haven’t read a book like this before, it is like we really get into Des’s head. I felt the story was dark and shows a family living not knowing what is really going on. The story gives a good understanding of a person who is a psychopath and domestic violence is also featured. It was an interesting read but I just felt as though I didn’t connect with the characters.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley for my copy.
