Description

The Perfect Nanny You wont move until you reach the last page. People

“Talk about a guilty pleasure.” The Washington Post


“Deliciously twisty . . . A hair-raising tale of domestic horror.” Entertainment Weekly

#1 National Bestseller


She has the keys to their apartment. She knows everything. She has embedded herself so deeply in their lives that it now seems impossible to remove her.
 
When Myriam decides to return to work as a lawyer after having children, she and her husband look for the perfect nanny for their son and daughter. They never dreamed they would find Louise: a quiet, polite, devoted woman who sings to the children, cleans the family’s chic Paris apartment, stays late without complaint, and hosts enviable kiddie parties. But as the couple and the nanny become more dependent on one another, jealousy, resentment, and suspicions mount, shattering the idyllic tableau. Building tension with every page, The Perfect Nanny is a compulsive, riveting, bravely observed exploration of power, class, race, domesticity, motherhood, and madness—and the American debut of an immensely talented writer.

The #1 international bestseller and winner of France’s most prestigious literary prize, the Goncourt

    I bought this book thinking it would be as good as they’ve hyped it up to be. It wasn’t. It was torture to read. I hate the way it’s written. I hate the narrative. The story is basic and predictable, didn’t need to be dragged on. I really hope she doesn’t make a sequel. I would give it zero stars but that’s not an option. Too 10 worst reads. The woman in cabin 10 is also up there as equally bad reads. Horrible. Just horrible.
