Review of Force of Nature by Jane Harper. This book felt like being lost in a forest and no one knows to even look for you. Five women go in, four come out and each has a different story.
I got this book through my Book of the Month Club subscription box and was very much looking forward to it. They claimed it was for fans of Stranger Things which was too tantalizing a comparison to pass up. However, although I believe that this was a decent read, it fell far from expectation.
I haven’t read a spy book in a long time and I don’t think I’ve ever read one that’s not spies from history or spies in fantasy or sci-fi spies. That is what I believe makes this book unique. We have plenty of spy tv shows but in literature, it is a genre that is fairly small, especially in YA. There was plenty of action, high-stakes, and combat talk.
2/5 rating for The Child. Overall this book wasn’t for me. Click here to see why I didn’t like it. Recommended for fans of TV series Broadchurch.
