The Ends of the Earth, Abbie Greaves

The Ends of the Earth, Abbie Greaves

Genre: General fiction .

I was really intrigued by the description, and having enjoyed Abbie’s novels before I really expected to love it. Maybe in a different time I would, but I’m reading this in November 20, caught in the Covid depression fugue that has many of us in its hold, and its just too drear, too somber for me.

It deals with such important issues of mental health that I feel bad about saying I didn’t enjoy it, but I couldn’t really connect properly to the story or the characters.
I felt when I got to the end ( and of course not the end I wanted…) that I had more questions than answers, and I just don’t get along with stories that make me feel that way. I like everything – or almost everything – wrapped up, questions answered, no missing parts, and here that didn’t happen. Unless I’ve missed something 😉

Stars: Two, I might come back and reread one day, when times are less grim and my mind can take a book that has a lot of sadness in. Right now its just not a story for me. That’s down to me, not the book, others love it and you may too.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
