Very much enjoyed this book. Hard to put down. A slow start, but definitely worth the wait!
What a weird book. I ended up skimming just to finish it. Very wordy and drawn out for the amount of happenings.
Fellside, by M. R. Carey is a different sort of book. When I found out about it, I thought, "Oh wow, this is gonna be an excellent read!" I jumped on the giveaway and snagged my copy. I also purchased the audiobook, to listen while walking each morning. Nothing better than having a good book read to you, right? Not only that- he's a writer for groups like DC and Marvel comics- you know I had to get in on this one! Imagine my deep feelings of confusion while reading this book! I kept trying to figure out, why there was so much going on! I wondered if the ending was going to be sure the "Bad Guys" got their just deserves or not! This is what the book's blurb says: Fellside is a maximum security prison on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors. It's not the kind of place you'd want to end up. But it's where Jess Moulson could be spending the rest of her life. It's a place where even the walls whisper. And one voice belongs to a little boy with a message for Jess. Will she listen? Sounds great right? But there was so much more going on, it obscured the story of Jess! I kept thinking, why is all this other stuff going on- it doesn't matter! The good thing is, the ending was much better than I thought it would be. I was very pleased with it, but did I think it was as great as anticipated? Nope. I was sorta let down because the secondary story took over the main portion I was salivating for. It wasn't too shabby, all in all. Check out Mike Carey's (M. R. Carey) Fellside. I'm on to the next book. http://bit.ly/FellsideNovel Published by Orbit
Story and characters are reasonably interesting but much of the writing is vague and filled with cliches. A trail of evidence is "a long fuse running backwards...like the one on the mission impossible credits...until the final whiteout." An anxious feeling is "waiting for the other shoe to dropkick her in the stomach." Very difficult to take the plot seriously or feel much empathy for the characters when the author doesn't seem to herself.
