Dark. Fans of dark psychological fiction are those readers most likely to enjoy Tara Isabella Burton’s debut novel titled, Social Creature. From the earliest pages of exposition of the unequal and manic relationship between Louise and Lavinia, I knew something bad would happen (Burton makes part of that clear very early on), and like watching an auto accident, I couldn’t peel my eyes away. The prose is well-written, the plot engaging, and the story deliciously dark and evil.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
