Genuine Fraud

This is the story of a young woman whose wit and charm are her ticket to a privileged life. She constantly reinvents herself and changes identity as she crisscrosses the world. There might have been a murder, or maybe 2. There could be a bad romance, or maybe 3. She refuses to give people what they want from her, and refuses to be the person she once was.

I was incredibly confused for almost the entire book. In only about the last 50 pages did anything make sense. This book had so many time frames, it told small stories from years ago, weeks ago, months ago, and the present. It switched so often, seemingly at random. I would have liked the stories to have been in a little order, and for there to have been a storyline. The ending was very strange. It made it seem like there would be a sequel, but there is nothing to really follow up on and there has been no advertising for one either, that was really confusing too.

This book is about deception, if you are used to a very unreliable narrator, which I was not, then you will like it a lot.
