Where to start, where to start. Ok, so I loved The Girl With All the Gifts. One of my absolute favorite reads last year. Definitely top 5, maybe even top 3. Loved. I have obsessively recommended it and I always ask people if they’ve read it. LOVED. So, when I heard M.R. Carey was coming out with another book, reading it was a no brainer. Even though it’s completely unrelated to the book I love so much. Because the book didn’t write itself, ya know?
And I wasn’t disappointed at all. It didn’t top The Girl With All the Gifts, but it stood firmly on its own two feet. It was a lot more intense, and a bit harder to read (because zombies are not real, and the horror of prison is). I’m not going to lie. I didn’t love the ending. I won’t give particulars because spoilers, but it wasn’t where I imagined things heading. This may be one of those instances where, after mulling over it for a bit, I realize why it could only be that way, but right now I’m just sad about it.
Despite the ending being less than satisfactory, it’s a very well-written, insightful book that had me on the edge of my seat for an extended period of time, and it falls into the “definitely recommend” category.
And M.R. Carey remains on my list of must-read authors.
Note: I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review (though I must add I purchased the book prior to being approved for the galley).
Well-written, this story pulled me along and I didn't want to put it down. I read it way too late into the night and neglected my chores to read this book. It was well worth wearing things from the back of my closet. Time well spent.
The story opens up with Jess Moulsen waking up in a hospital room with no recollection of what has happened. She quickly learns that she is being accused of starting the fire that killed her upstairs neighbor, a young boy. She goes to trial and does not do anything to help herself as she doesn't know what happened but decides that she must be guilty.
I was thoroughly annoyed by Jess in this part of the book. She didn't even try to figure out what was going on and accepted her fate too easily. There wasn't much on her back story to say whether she had low self esteem or what it was. As soon as she is is sentenced to a prison sentence at a creepy English women's prison by the moors she throws herself into a hunger strike to try and off herself in more of her self absorbed nonsense.
Here is where it starts to pick up. She hears a mysterious voice that she believes to be Alex, the young boy that she allegedly killed. He gives her some information to go off of that points to the fact that he was already dead before the fire. She utilizes her legal team to investigate what went on that fateful night. This was by far my favorite part of the book. It was fast paced and sucked me in during this time period.
The underlying plot of the story deals with an inmate named Grace who runs the show and a drug ring. This whole plot twist was unnecessary to me and had it been cut out would have shortened the book considerably. I understand that it tied in with the ghost plot but that could have been cut out and done differently.
Overall the book was just okay for me.. I might pick up his other work based off some of the reviews I have read. This "thriller" just fell flat for me. Too many problems, too long and drawn out.
I LOVED the Girl with all the Gifts, but would never recommend Fellside.
