Review | Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved this book. I simply couldn’t put it down.
The characters were awesome. I LOVED Harvey. Alice was not the most likable character at times but I saw through the nasty person she tended to be to a few select characters. Did those characters deserve it? Maybe, but should Alice have been using her precious time on revenge? Maybe not so completely.
I loved and hated the layout of the story. Chapters from both Alice and Harvey’s points of view from both “Now” and “Then”. The “Then” chapters being flash backs of before “Now”, which was current time. I found some of the “Then” chapters imposing because I REALLY wanted to know what was going to happen in the “Now”. The “Then” chapters were very important though.
I see this being a standalone. However, I would not be opposed to reading more about Alice’s life.
