Review

I just finished Mud Vein and I'm incredibly frustrated. I just don't know! I DON'T KNOW, OKAY? I haven't been at a complete loss for words in I don't know how long. I just want to pull my hair out. And I want to note here that I'm not sure if my incredible frustration and loss for words are a good thing or a bad thing. I really don't know how to feel right now.

This is my first book by Tarryn Fisher, but I've read really great things about her books. I can see why. I loved her writing. It was really fantastic and certainly enough to win me over to reading more of her books. But what about *this* particular book?

Fantastic writing. Gripping story from the very beginning until... the end, I guess? The ending threw me for a completely unexpected loop and I'm still reeling from it. I can't even begin to make sense about what happened. Weirdly, though, I enjoyed it. I am liking how this book made me feel after reading it. It's strange and wonderful and great.



I recommend Mud Vein, but I recommend that you go in blind (no spoilers) if you decide to read it.

Rating

4.5 out of 5 stars
