So, I just finished reading this insane book, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. The main character, Mara, is off enough to make you wonder whether she belongs in a mental institution or if she is just having a really bad few weeks. She may or may not be seeing her dead best friends who died in a horrible accident she can’t remember. She also may or may not have some sort of ability to do something more than most people can do. And I’m not sure anyone would want the responsibility of having the power she may or may not have.
Do you see what I mean about this being a crazy book?
Even though I’ve read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the first book in Michelle Hodkin’s new series, in its entirety, I still do not know exactly what was going on and how everything will work out in the end. Either Hodkin is fantastic at building suspense for a series that will be amazing, or I may be in for one horrible disappointment in the future.
At this moment, though, I think this book series has the potential to be a thrilling ride of mystery and suspense—or it is possibly the ramblings of a crazy person. Either way, it’s totally worth the read. Just make sure you’re in the mood to be both confused and fascinated. Oh, and don’t plan on being able to explain the plot to your closest friends, because I’m not even sure Sherlock Holmes could figure this one out.
When to read this book:
When you’re in the mood to be confused by life and have a deep need to be drawn into a story you can’t really understand, yet somehow still enjoy.
When not to read this book:
When you’re questioning your own sanity, because it may be just enough to push you over the edge.
