Before I start this review I have to say that this book is EXTREMELY taboo and talks about dark subjects. I don’t know how to put spoilers on WordPress, so the theme of the book will be talked about here. If EXTREMELY TABOO subjects aren’t for you. Skip this one and Thursday’s post.
Series: The Wild
Author: K. Webster
Check it Out: Goodreads
The plan was to make a new life that didn’t include heartache.No people. No technology. No interference.
A chance to piece together what was broken.But the wilderness is untamed and harsh.
Brutal and unforgiving.
It doesn’t give a damn about your feelings.Tragedy lives there too.
No escaping the truths that won’t let you go.All you can do is survive where love, no matter how beastly, is the only thing you can truly count on.
Confusing. Wrong. Twisted. Beautiful. Sick.
Love is wild.
And we’re going to set it free.
The Wild is an extremely taboo story. Most will find that the themes in this book will make you incredibly uncomfortable. This book is only for the brave, the open-minded, and the ones who crave love in even the most dismal of situations. Extreme sexual themes and violence in certain scenes, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to heavy taboo themes, then this story is not for you.
Oh boy! How do you review a book like this?!
I remember a lot of talk about this book about a year ago. I had been interested to see what it was about and now I finally got a chance to read it. I already knew ahead of time just how taboo this story would be. However, I was still shocked by how far the author went.
I didn’t like it. I feel so many things were thrown in here just to make this story as taboo as possible. So many things worked out just right and then there were scenes that hurt me to even read and didn’t feel necessary.
This book is about an incest relationship between a dad and daughter. If you aren’t going to be comfortable with that, then stay the hell away from this book. The topic of incest doesn’t bother me in the slightest. I’ve read quite a few books on it. Maybe that’s why I can say that this one was written to shock, not actually be understood or be a good read.
All in all, now I can say I read this book. I didn’t love or like this, but not for the same reason for a lot of people. It was too convenient and too much thrown in for shock factor. If you’re still interested after reading this and other reviews, then know you were warned. It’s twisted and fucked up and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
