Figure Eight- Calia Read

About this book:34117458

Dear Selah,
Do you remember me?
Of course you don’t. So I’m going to give you a refresher course.
I’ve known you for years and years. We used to have beautiful conversations. There was no one that knew you better than me. We were handmade for each other.
Lately, it’s become achingly obvious you’re miserable. You’ve moved back home to take care of your ailing mother. You’ve been looking for a new job, but that’s not going well. Admit it: it’s all too much.
Everyone around you sees your suffering, but they’re not willing to help you.
Everyone but Jackson.
He comes into your life at the perfect moment and offers you everything you could want: a shoulder to lean on, love, and most importantly, hope.
But there’s no one that can compare to me. You seem to forget that I’m your figure 8. Your infinity. You try to run, but I will always find you.
Yours Truly,
Figure 8

Release Date: 12th March, 2017


What I think?

Say what?

This book is one of the biggest mind-fucks I’ve read, and that’s saying something in and of itself.

I swear, the entire time that I was reading this book, my mind was scrambling over itself trying to get to the core of the story, so kudos to Read for that. It’s one of those books that you’d either love, or hate, because there is no middle ground with it.

Selah, a 33 year old aspiring writer, and a lonely woman hungry for someone to understand and love her, meets a man online, and quickly falls in love with him, but there is an ailing mother she has to take care of, and a job she needs to find, and also there is the man living opposite to her house that just might be a serial killer.

Don’t believe me. Just go along with Selah, because she certainly thinks so.

I won’t talk too much about this book, because it’s one of those that you need to experience, rather than be spoiled with. But I’ll say as much, that ending I did not see coming.

It was a great read, and completely kept me on my toes right until the reveal, and maybe I had too many books like this, but I kind of saw that, or at least got some of it correct. The entire build-up if fantastic, and Read does a brilliant job of writing the climax, even if the ending did catch me off guard.

Do I recommend this? Oh hell yes. Definitely give it a go if you want to question everything in your life.
