Wow! I honestly didn’t think I’d love it as much as I did. It didn’t even made me annoyed at any point. Weird!
Our MH is Emily, the only survivor of the plane crash in the middle of the rain forest. Or is she? We don’t know until the very end. There were 6 people alive after the crash, so how was she the only one left? The story is told in parallel timing, going back and forth between right now and the few days following the crash. Emily’s mentality also differs from what was before, it’s like she is the same person and yet not. It’s fascinating really how human brain works when in survival mode.
The understanding of acceptable behaviour, right and wrong, it shifts in the jungle, and I got why Emily and others did things, that could be frowned upon in normal circumstances. Still, the psychology was disturbing, maybe because you never know what you’re capable of. Not really.
I couldn’t put the book down, I only read it in two sittings because girl’s gotta work, otherwise I would’ve finished it right away. It’s that good! The writing worked for me perfectly, maybe because the author wrote for tv-shows in the past, but he knew just how to work me. I’d love to read something else of his in the future too.
Over and out
