I want to start this review by stating that I received a paperback copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way changes or affects my review. Thank you, James Morris, for the free copy of this book.
“It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime.”
A plane crashes in the Amazon jungle, Emily and her five friends are the only survivors.
This book was extremely well-written, it was a really fast read and kept me on my toes. I really enjoyed how distinct the characters all were from each other and each brought something compelling to the story. I loved how all the characters are going through their own struggles during the time in the Amazon, it brings a ton of complexity to the story and makes them more relatable. The novel is framed between the present, in the hospital, and the past, in the jungle and before the plane crash.
When in the jungle the characters no longer understand the difference between right and wrong and nothing is like it used to be in high school, old hierarchy doesn’t matter anymore. The author shows us that we never really know what we are capable of to survive.
Don’t make talk about that major plot twist at the end, my mind almost exploded. I was taken by surprise. I feel like you can really tell that the author wrote for tv-shows in the past because for me at least it felt like being in a movie theatre.
Recommend this book to literally everyone! I loved every single word and I need to know what happened after that ending.
I rate this book 4.5 out of 5 stars!
Bye, keep on reading!
