The Lonely by Ainslie Hogarth (Review)


I received this free from the publisher via NetGalley

Release date – September 8th

Easter comes home to find The Terrible Thing. She then goes to the woods to find her sister Julia, but she gets stuck under a boulder and starts to bleed to death. Memories of her life starts coming back to her as she is in The Woods, bored and disappointed.

It is not that The Lonely was a bad book. It was not a bad book, it just was not my type of book. It was a little too weird, but that is the whole point of the book. I can see why some people may like it, and may be pulled into the story, but I was one of those people who unfortunately was not entirely captivated by this book.

I personally did not find it very humorous either, but others might. As stated before, this is not my cup of tea, but others may find this a great read. It is however, very imaginative, and written very well. It is a dark book and in places it was a little too dark, and I usually don’t mind books that are weird or dark, but this left me confused far too often. I did sometimes feel the need to read on, but sometimes I also did not want to read it.

It is a very complex book which I am having a hard time reviewing.

I did not mind the characters. They were enjoyable, and interesting, but no one I could really connect to.

Overall, an interesting read, which I personally did not get invested into, but this is a book that I think you need to read to decide for yourself.

MY RATING: ★★☆☆☆
