Beneath the Book Club discussion: 'None of this is True' is an exceptional page turner that leaves the ending up to you.


Spoiler alert: if you haven’t read None of this is True by Lisa Jewell, you might not want to traipse any further.


Beneath the Book Club’s May read was a thrilling mystery I couldn’t stop listening to.


This was my first audiobook (and won’t be my last).

I dived into it on a trip to see my daughter in Austin, and the podcast element in the storyline made it perfect for listening.


None of this is True tells the story of glamorous podcaster Alix Summer and the dowdy Josie Fair who cross paths at a local club while celebrating their 45th birthdays.


They’re birthday twins.

A few days later, they bump into each other again and a weird friendship begins to blossom.

Alix eventually agrees to discuss Josie’s sad life on her podcast and it doesn’t take long for some very dark secrets to emerge.


The storyline is told through varying perspectives and nothing is as it seems.

When Josie’s unhinged behavior takes an unexpectedly dark turn, Alex wonders who she has gotten herself mixed up with - and you will too.


The reader will decide what ending they believe is true and that’s the real fun of this book.


I think Josie was lying; she was the crazy one.
