Most underrated book…
I am having zero luck with this challenge lately! 😂
I have racked my brains and I cannot think of many books I have read that are underrated. The only one I can think of is a book I read about 8 years ago.
The Interpretation of Murder by Jed Rubenfeld.
In this historical thriller, Sigmund Freud is drawn into the mind of a sadistic killer who is savagely attacking Manhattan’s wealthiest heiresses
Inspired by Sigmund Freud’s only visit to America, The Interpretation of Murder is an intricate tale of murder and the mind’s most dangerous mysteries. It unfurls on a sweltering August evening in 1909 as Freud disembarks from the steamship George Washington, accompanied by Carl Jung, his rival and protege. Across town, in an opulent apartment high above the city, a stunning young woman is found dangling from a chandelier—whipped, mutilated, and strangled. The next day, a second beauty—a rebellious heiress who scorns both high society and her less adventurous parents—barely escapes the killer. Yet Nora Acton, suffering from hysteria, can recall nothing of her attack. Asked to help her, Dr. Stratham Younger, America’s most committed Freudian analyst, calls in his idol, the Master himself, to guide him through the challenges of analyzing this high-spirited young woman whose family past has been as complicated as his own.
I don’t generally read historical fiction but I loved this book!!! And I rarely hear it mentioned anywhere. I lent my copy to a friend years ago, and never got it back!!! (Grrrrrrr!!!)
I was book shopping online on Friday night and I came across it for €2 on a used book site so I repurchased it!
Anyone else read this book?! 😊📖
