This is what I’ve been waiting for in a book. I’ve never read a book with an unreliable narrator but this book did it sooo well. At first I thought it was going to be more focused on Alicia but I didn’t mind the perspective that was given from Theo. I really enjoyed how the book was written. Alicia’s journals were such a page turner. The way the author made everyone look suspicious in this book made it really hard to predict. And that plot twist. Wow. I literally screamed when I figured it out. I enjoy books that make me think and this book gave me whiplash yet kept me engaged as I finished 70% of this book in one evening.

I found the aesthetic, the world building and the stories within this book to be very good. I throughly enjoyed the different perspective that is taken on the subject of time travel. It is done in such a unique way that it is the books strong point. Although I feel that the first story of the book stuffers because of all the world building the book has to create and all the characters the book throws at you but the rest of the stories thrive off of that.

I was not sold on this book until the last quarter. The beginning felt like a recap and some of the writing felt sooo mundane or felt like it repeated the same format as the other books. Although the plot twists were good per usual. One thing I picked out was how the characters were so point blank. All of the characters, every single one, felt so dull and didn’t create that connection to the reader . I could never understand any action or motive a character made because all their personalities were outdated tropes from 2014. Otherwise! I throughly enjoyed the ending. I thought it was a solid way to end the series and turn a change for the Hawthorne family.

Animal farm has so many themes and elements to it that reflect into real life, probably inspired by the events around the time of its creation. The way it portrays many groups of people by using the animals. I like the connections that it makes and how it slowly shows the upper class animals breaking the commandments, as a way to show a hierarchy and the divide between the animals.

I’d like to start off that I thought the writing in this book was very descriptive and that the characters were very fleshed out. I could understand their motives and why or how they acted. It was cool seeing how Kya adapted to her surroundings and learned how to live in the marsh. I also enjoyed the romance and mystery murder aspects incorporated into the story. I feel as if the book climaxed a little to late as there were so few pages and so many questions I had left. I did enjoy twist ending that happens right before the end so you can’t even process before you realize the book is done.

I Listened to the audiobook and Jeanette is a great narrator. At moments, her audiobook was hard to listen to. Listening to her describe how she felt as a kid from that perspective that she was as a kid was something I enjoyed a lot. Overall, I don’t have much to say other than that I enjoyed hearing and learning about what Jeanette went through and how she is recovering.
