Looker by Laura Sims is now available!

Brenda’s review


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!

  6. I read this as an ARC as well. And wow, that ending was something! Good I think? I agree the book certainly packs a punch. How much do you think was a delusion instead of reality?

      At first, I was a bit confused and I thought that couldn’t be happening and then I realized it was probably a delusion. I think a good part of the beginning were reality and then as she unraveled she started to have more delusions.

      1. Yea, I agree. I think it’s part of the beauty of the book, the mix between reality and the delusions.

    Wonderful review Brenda. This is one that I have not hear of but perhaps I should have. Dark and twisty and trying to make someone go crazy, sounds good.
