As technology continues to encroach on every aspect of our lives, SK Tremayne's new novel makes us wonder what would happen if that tech went wrong - or was used to nefarious ends It's a thoroughly modern take on the thriller genre, and one which we're seeing more and more of.
However, while decently chilling in places, there are far better examples on offer than The Assistant. The plot is decently crafted it does get a bit preposterous toward the end, as is the wont of the genre and not neces As technology continues to encroach on every aspect of our lives, SK Tremayne's new novel makes us wonder what would happen if that tech went wrong - or was used to nefarious ends The plot is decently crafted it does get a bit preposterous toward the end, as is the wont of the genre and not necessarily a bad thing.
But the writing and unnecessarily disturbing-for-shocks content lets it down and renders the whole thing a little tawdry. There's a stomach-churning reference to child abuse and OTT descriptions of self-harm the latter framed in a completely insensitive and ignorant manner , while elsewhere the author's prejudices shine through - apparently anywhere that's cheap to live is riven with knife crime, and there's references to 'gay boys' and 'single mums turned drug dealers'.
There's lots of incongruous, badly written and creepily misogynistic sex peppered throughout rather, shoehorned in.
At one point a character ponders the propriety of watching porn while eating Waitrose dips, while elsewhere a GP comments on the attractiveness of a patient.
And the ignorance surrounding mental health issues is simply stunning. Aside from the self harm for thrills, we see references to 'a schizo, a nutter', 'one of the alcoholic nutters' and those suffering from schizophrenia as being 'mad' - all from a supposedly educated and intelligent character.
Then there's the downright ridiculous writing. It's all a bit sixth form story writing competition. It's entertaining enough if all of the above isn't an issue for you.
I found Tremayne's value judgements and ignorance overshadowed what might have been a passable thriller. While there are some genuinely chilling scenes, and some creepy questions raised on the topic of tech and our dependency on it, the premise promised far more than was delivered and the overall feeling is one of a wasted opportunity.
A slightly grubby shame. My thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Jo is a freelance journalist and wouldn't be able to afford living anywhere as nice as this. The modern apartment is managed by a Home Assistant, Electra.
The Home Assistant is wonderful new technology that everyone wants Jo is scared Only two other people in the whole world know Jo's secret.
As a fierce winter brings London to a standstill, Jo begins to understand that the Assistant on the shelf doesn't just want to control Jo; it wants to destroy her.
At first, I thought I was reading science fiction How many have gadgets in their house to answer questions, do research, This is well written with an increasing creep factor that doesn't let up until the very last surprising ending.
The characters are deftly drawn Read and reviewed voluntarily, opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
Sep 24, Christina McDonald rated it it was amazing Shelves: creepy-thriller , edge-of-seat-suspense. How did I miss this one last year?
This book was incredible! Electric, riveting, and deliciously disturbing, The Assistant is a scarily believable story about the nature of modern technology and our reliance on virtual assistants, like Alexa or Siri.
What happens when a virtual assistant goes rogue? Could it drive you insane? The Assistant burrows into the fear many of us have: that technology might not just control us, but could ultimately destroy us.
Newly divorced, Jo is happy to move into Wow! But one night the virtual assistant, Electra, begins talking to her.
She tells Jo she knows what she did. And Jo did do something bad. Something unforgiveable. But how would Electra know?
Is it all in her head, or does Electra really want to destroy her? Thank you to Netgalley and Harper Collins for a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Sep 30, Fiona MacDonald rated it it was amazing. Creepy, atmospheric and full of tension. Penniless Jo, is invited to stay in her best friend Tabitha's gorgeous state of the art flat in Camden.
But soon after Jo moves in, she senses something is wrong. The assistants appear to be talking to her. In fact, they are saying terrible things wow!
In fact, they are saying terrible things, things about her past, things she didn't know anyone else knew, horrible things.
In particular about an earlier event in her life when she and Tabitha went to Glastonbury that ended in tragedy.
How could they know this? And what is their purpose for frightening her? Is someone she knows doing this? Or is she going mad and hallucinating?
Such brilliant tension, and a fantastic twist at the end. What makes it such a scary story is how reliant everyone is nowadays on social media, and being tuned into everything as soon as it happens.
And this as we discover, can be very dangerous indeed. I enjoyed the first half of this but it gradually lost its way. The story of Jo, a divorced woman in her early 30s, not much money and living with her wealthy friend in London in her flat as a lodger.
Her friend is away a lot with her job so Jo spends a lot of time alone in the flat as she also works from home. She uses the tech a lot and finds the voice a comfort when she is alone.
However when Hmm. However when the assistants start talking to her without prompting, start bringing dark secrets up from her past, she starts to wonder is she losing her mind.
Her father committed suicide when she was young due to schizophrenia. He started hearing the tv talking to him.
Late onset schizophrenia was the diagnosis. Is she showing symptoms of the same or are the assistants actually taking to her? Or worse is someone using them to stalk her?
This started off pretty interesting. A narrative on modern tech put into an interesting premise. Between that and the schizophrenia angle we have a pretty interesting story with an unreliable narrator.
It loses its way about half way through as the narrator just becomes annoying. I found the book overly long, getting more ridiculous as it went on, with a hugely disappointing and a bit of a cop out ending.
It had some really interesting questions and threads in it but most are just red herrings. The problem is the red herrings were more interesting than the actual real story as it turned out.
The makings of a very good story, a book of two halves, I really enjoyed the first half and slowly lost interest as the second half went on, culminating in the poor ending.
Many thanks to Netgalley, Harper Collins and S. Tremayne for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Finished reading: November 19th "I do not understand the extent of the hatred and the violence of the damage done to me.
Why and how do I deserve this? What is the point? Thank you! I did so afterwards, and definitely liked what I found. A psychological thriller with the promise of a dark secret and a technology angle?
Yes please! I admit I had since forgotten what this story was about, so I was definitely pleasantly surprised and simply delighted by the plot I found once I started reading The Assistant.
Such an original and bloodchilling premise! I personally couldn't imagine having so many gadgets in my own home, especially having my very own Electra controlling so many aspects of my daily life And I'm not sure if I even want to try getting used to one after reading this story.
I think anyone who read this story themselves would understand why! Then we have the writing, which is just as good as I've become used to after reading The Ice Twins and The Fire Child.
It managed to draw me right in from the very first chapter and it was very easy to keep flying through those pages.
Combine that with a solid pace and a healthy dose of suspense and plot twists to keep you intrigued and you will find yourself reaching that final page at record speed.
Part of the success of this story is in the fact that you are never completely sure what is happening. Is Jo the typical unreliable main character? Do mental health issues play a role in the events described?
What is going on with the technology? And what about those secrets about the past? Last but not least the characters. The premise of this story is so original though!
I've been keeping my rambles pretty general to avoid spoilers, but if you like twisty and unique psychogical thrillers you will be in for an absolute treat with The Assistant.
Find more of my reviews here. Jan 20, Eve rated it it was ok Shelves: a-down-on-her-luck-heroine , annoying-heroine , immature-heroine.
The high-tech flat is managed by a Home Assistant, called Electra, who helps to keep her company when she feels lonely. Till Electra start to say things about Jo's past and weird things start to happen.
What secret Jo is hiding? How Electra knows things it shouldn't know? Or is Jo going crazy like her father?
I like this story's premise - what if your home where you should feel safe, suddenly become menacing and controlled by the techology? So I was really looking forward to this story.
Sadly the protagonist is another messed up woman who's haunted by something from her past naturally this "terrible secret" won't be revealed until much later in the book.
Huh, so tired of this plot device where author keep reader in the dark! Jo's inner monologue about her miserable life, unsatisfactory career and sex life, was so boring.
Jo sounded pathetic, unlikeable, constatly whining how broke she was, yet, used Uber, went to dinners. Its like she's the only person to get divorced or be lonely.
Someone in her 30s should be more mature and put together! Another thing that dissapointed me was the way protagonist's backround was delivered view spoiler [I though she's newly divorced, but then how her ex is already with another woman and has a child?
What's with Jo and cheating? What's the deal with Jo and her best friend who let her live in her flat? I felt like the main character wasn't solid enough!
And to muddle things more, author had to add the mental health issue that made story even more stupid and tiresome to read. I enjoy stories where the heroine have to start over but I prefer them to be more quirky, sassy and have courage!
If you fall down, pick yourself up like a lady! And finally: Show, don't tell! Sadly I couldn't click with this story, nor the characters.
Next, please! I read and loved S. Tremayne's first thriller "The Ice Twins" so I was excited to read THE ASSISTANT.
But while the premise promised a disturbing tale at the hands of a Home Assistant, I found it slow and drawn out and relatively unexciting. I was disappointed because the concept of such a thing happening was unique to this type of book despite the very real danger of it occurring through cyber attacks.
