Tour de force
Ill Will - Dan Chaon

What a ride! Unsettling. Alarming. Irresistible. Riveting. Alluring. Brilliantly structured, and quite risky, but entirely accomplished.

 

Yes, it's a thriller, but so much more. And yes, we may have seen characters like this before, but not, in my experience, written with such audacity.

 

Highly recommended.

Under the weather

Image result for under the weather

 

So this picture describes me very good right now.

 

My laryngitis has now also lead to me having tonsillitis which I am now in so much pain with that i can't breathe properly or talk very long without having a coughing fit so it means that I am off work still hopefully it will get better and I can go back to work sooner rather than later.

 

Right now though in the part of the UK I live in its been raining all day and its now carried on to the night so I am going to sit tucked up in bed and read as much as i can of A Court of Thorns and Roses which I doubt will be much because my concentration is very limited I just want to sleep this infection away.

 

How has everyone been so far this week?? I hope it stays positive and if something is wrong it can only get better. 

 

Speak to you all soon.

HI everyone

Image result for long time no see

 

I can't believe how long its been since I last posted and wow how things have not changed lol I have been so busy and got caught up in so much i have just neglected this and also my wordpress blog and I am hoping/forcing myself to post more because i really do love the community and I have missed it alot.

 

So at the minute I am off work with laryngitis and its so painful i would not wish it on anyone I can't talk I am having to write everything or text people. 

 

I am currently reading A Court of Thorns and Roses and you should expect a review on that soon I have a new notepad at the ready to write my thoughts down.

 

I probs won't reach many people to start with or at all but i do hope on improving on that and that can especially be done whist I am off work unable to do anything. I think a new blog is needed so i will be doing a revamp and improvement on it so please bare with me I am still new at all of this 

 

Image result for thank you for reading

My Review of Ill Will
Ill Will - Dan Chaon

Ill Will by Dan Chaon is a story that revolves around a family tragedy. That's all I could ascertain from this story. I couldn't get into the whole book being back-story. There was a lot of sexual situations. Way too many for my taste. The story was, for me, hard to follow most of the time. I had to read quite a bit of the chapter to find out whose point of view I was reading. The ending didn't reveal any true insight into the story, or have a real conclusion. I received a copy of this book through Netgalley, and all opinions are my own.

Ill Will
Ill Will - Dan Chaon

By: Dan Chaon

ISBN: 9780345476043

Publisher:  Random House  

Publication Date: 3/7/2017 

Format: Other 

My Rating: 4 Stars 

 

Psychologically complex Dan Chaon’s ILL WILL is a dark, haunting, and twisty suspense thriller full of madness, tragedy, murder, grief, and despair. Cancer, drugs, addictions, and satanic evil.

"We meet our destiny on the road we take to avoid it." —Jean De La Fontaine.

Dustin Tillman is a suburban Cleveland psychiatrist. Father of two teenage boys, Aaron and Dennis. His wife, Jill dying of cancer, and one of his patients is now recruiting him to help investigate the drownings of young men that seem to match a pattern. He is struggling with his own past. He is the survivor.

In 1983, when he was thirteen years old, his mother, father, aunt, and uncle were murdered. Dustin accused his adopted older brother, Rusty (attracted to Satanism) of the crime. Rusty was incarcerated.

What really happened with the violent murder during a summer holiday in 1983? Two unsolved crimes. Past and Present.

 



"In the end it is the mystery that lasts and not the explanation."—Sacheverell Sitwell, For Want of the Golden City.

Now he has been exonerated and released. Thirty some years after Dustin’s testimony put him away for murdering their parents, aunt, and uncle. Now DNA evidence clears him of the crime.

From dark family secrets and deceit, this is one creepy grisly disturbing book. Unnerving, moody and atmospheric. Emotionally wrenching and complex.

Plot-driven, the author uses impressive skill and control, as he crosses multiple narratives with different perspectives— for a mind-bending saga which will leave your head spinning. An exploration of memories, delusion, and self-deception.

". . . Every memory he thinks of now is discolored and ugly. The past suddenly has vanished from underneath him, distorted, memories turned into something he doesn't recognize, something malevolent."

The author keeps the evil, despair, terror and suspense high. Exploring humanity’s darker side. If you are looking for a relaxing read, move on. However, you if like crossing over to the darker side, and enjoy well-written complex literary/pulp fiction thrillers, you may enjoy the scary intense ride.

A special thank you to Random House, LibraryThing Early Reviewers, and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
