I chose to read this book because I read The Girl with all the Gifts by M.R. Carey and I absolutely adored it. It was a book that stayed with me long after having read it (and I can’t wait for the movie to come out!!). But Fellside was really different, the writing was still great, something I like a lot in The Girl with all the Gifts, but it was not really the same kind of book. It was really creepy and mysterious and I actually liked that about this read.
Still, it was not one of my favourite book and I won’t re-read it. Only because it is not the genre I most enjoy. The author managed to create a really mysterious story. Everytime I came up with an idea to solve the mystery, it was destroyed by new evidence five pages later. I had so many questions and so many ideas it was really difficult to go on.
Nonetheless, I was not that invested in the book at the beginning. I felt that it was a bit slow and I could not keep track on all the characters, who they were and what they were doing; but then the last 150 pages kept me on edge and I read this last part in one sitting.
If you like mystery and paranormal, you need to check this out, I bet you won’t be disappointed.
