Evidence of the Affair by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Narrated by Julia Whelan, George Newbern, James Daniels and Dara Rosenberg
I listened to the very short (1 hour, 19 minutes) audiobook of Evidence of the Affair by Taylor Jenkins Reid last month and I couldn’t believe what an interesting and cool story it was. I didn’t write the review right away, so I read the kindle version today to refresh my memory. I loved it both ways!
Taylor Jenkins Reid told this story in such a unique way. It’s 1976, and Carrie Allsop just found letters from another woman to her husband. After reading them, she realizes they are having an affair and that the woman is married to a man named David. So she writes him a letter.
“Dear Mr. David Mayer, My name is Carrie Allsop. Please accept my apologies for contacting you out of the blue…”
The entire story is told through letters between Carrie and David as well as the letters they found from their spouses. It was done so well in both the audiobook and the book. In the audiobook, we had a different voice for each person’s letter, and in the book she used different fonts. It was so creative!
Bonus: Daisy Jones and Mick Riva (who was mentioned in The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Malibu Rising, Daisy Jones & The Six and Carrie Soto is Back) were both mentioned! See all the crossovers in the Taylor Jenkins Reid Universe right here.
