At only 180 pages Looker by Laura Sims packs quite the punch and has the elements here to make this a pleasing dark and unsettling story. It has those intriguing unsettling elements of jealousy, obsession and resentment.
Laura Sims takes us into the mind of our unnamed narrator as we watch her obsessions with a neighbor start to push her over the edge. Laura Sims does a good job balancing the dark thoughts with some wit and humour, allowing me to feel some sympathy here for our main character.
Laura Sims does a good job creating an interesting unreliable character here and at times I was questioning what was real and what was a delusion.
The ending took me a bit by surprise and left me wanting more and I haven’t really decided if that was a good thing or not. I am leaning towards good because I was satisfied with the way it ended.
Thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada and Laura Sims for my copy to read and review!
