No middle ground with this book.
Determining how many stars to rate The Contradiction of Solitude was difficult.
YA is my favorite genre. My grandchildren keep me abreast of what’s trending. It’s great to share their enthusiasm for good reading.
This is one of my granddaughter raved and raved about until I downloaded it. She and I will have to agree to disagree. The Contradiction of Solitude is one of her favorites but not mine.
After finishing the book several days ago I’m still haunted by the words.
I predict you’ll either love it or hate it but you will feel something. The writing is very good and very disturbing. The author gives a peek into the disturbed mind of a young person and her serial killer parent. This book left me shell-shocked.
As I mentioned above, YA is my favorite genre, however I didn’t care much for this story. Ms. Walters writes a dark and twisted tale. It’s been days since I finished and I’m still thinking about the characters.
And isn’t that the definition of good writing?
Words that haunt the reader days after reading “the end.”
The Contradiction of Solitude does just that, love or hate it, I’m bet you won’t forget it. This one gets 4.5 stars from me.
