Publisher's Summary

People like Emmy Jackson. They always have. Especially online, where she is Instagram sensation Mamabare, famous for always telling the unvarnished truth about modern parenthood. But Emmy isn’t as honest as she’d like the fans to believe. She may think she has her followers fooled, but someone out there knows the truth and plans to make her pay....

A smart and thrilling debut that delves into the darkest aspects of influencer culture, Ellery Lloyd’s People Like Her is about what you risk losing when you don’t know who’s watching....

Social Media

I found this book well written and very well narrated. It highlighted the highs and lows of social media. I am not a fan but realise that becoming an influencer is a legitimate career choice nowadays. However the story also revolved around extracting revenge (although she called it justice) for a piece of advice offered by Emmy, the Mammabear influencer. This was interesting and the subsequent actions of the aggrieved person then provided an exciting conclusion to the story. Not entirely sure what the message was but it was an excellent read

Alright, but came away disappointed.

So positives first, its well written, easy to listen to and very close to the end becomes quite interesting.

However I did struggle with this book, I wanted to like it because the premise sounded good, however it is very heavily narrated, every character talking through their thoughts and motives behind everything rather than the story unfolding itself. I also found that for the first 80% of the book it kind of felt like nothing really happened, def not a thriller or edge of your seat type read.

I do think this book is very well written, the narration by Anna Bentinck, Finlay Robertson and Nathalie Buscombe is impeccable and if you are looking for some easy listening without many twists and turns then you may very well love this book. I think I just found myself looking for something more.
