Anyone feeling a bit Twisted today? I am, and I get to share my review of Steve Cavanagh’s book as well! Many thanks to Tracy Fenton for the blog tour invite, and huge thanks to Orion for the ARC. Here is my review:
What does TWG think?
What the actual f….!!!!!
I finished reading Twisted a mere 24 hours ago, crossing my fingers that by the time I went to write my review, my head wouldn’t be full of cotton wool and actually able to put my thoughts into sentences which made sense. I cannot guarantee that this review will be as coherent as others, but I will try my best.
Seriously though, what the f…!
I have see ‘Twisted’ making itself known on social media for weeks. So many people reading it, and so many people loving it. The hype behind this book was incredible – but would it live up to such high expectations?
The answer to that question is a big, fat YES x 13273747473. Bloody hells bells! ‘Twisted’ didn’t just live up to my expectations, it exceeded them and gave me my biggest book hangover of 2019 so far.
If you read this book and feel all smug that you know where its heading, the chances are you probably don’t. I was convinced that I knew which character was in the firing line and which ones would die – but I was wrong. So very, very wrong.
‘Twisted’ is exactly that, its twisted as hell and yet still exceptionally clever. It’s as though the author led his readers into a false sense of security, showing them things that they wanted to know in order to make them believe, whilst pulling the rug from under them at the same time.
My nerves were shot to shizzle by the end of the book, and I was sitting on my sofa with tremors a martini mixer would be envious of. Now, whilst I do admit that reading through lunch and what not, probably exacerbated the shakes, Steve Cavanagh’s storyline is what put them there in the first place.
Honestly, this is a book like no other book I’ve read before and, omg its effing brilliant. The attention to detail was insane! Gorey, but wow. The psychological elements had me tied in knots and left me questioning every little thing. And, the brilliance of the entire storyline was second to none!
Wow, wow – this is severely Twisted and by far one of the best books I think I have ever read!!
