Annie is de droomvrouw uit de titel. Ze doet alles wat haar man wil. Beter gezegd: hij controleert haar en bepaalt haar hele leven. En dat gaat heel ver. Samen met zijn moeder. En dat alles wordt in de eerste 150 bladzijden met heel veel voorbeelden wel duidelijk, en dat had iets korter gemogen. Ze klampt zich vast aan haar kind, het enige waar ze nog voor leeft. Ze wil ontsnappen aan haar gewelddadige en overspelige echtgenoot maar durft en kan dat niet goed. Ze droomt over vrijheid, en dat is waar werkelijkheid en fictie regelmatig in elkaar over gaan. Ik zou dit geen thriller noemen, daarvoor is het niet echt spannend genoeg. Maar het einde is dan wel weer verrassend.
