🌸 REVIEW: The Plot 🌸

“You act like words don’t belong to everyone. You act like words don’t belong to everyone. You act like stories don’t have real people attached to them.”


I’m rarely at a loss for words but I have no idea how to rate this book. Its premise is so unique. I’m not going to give away too much about the plot; but basically a relatively unsuccessful author adapts a unique plot from one of his writer workshop students and gets caught. He begins being hounded by someone accusing him of plagiarism and begins to unravel.

I enjoyed this read for the most part. I loved the idea. But it spent too much time in Jake’s head for my liking. I prefer books with a lot of dialogue, especially these types of modern thrillers. Don’t get me wrong, there was lots of suspense but when you figure things out before the protagonist it can be a little boring going around and around in their head with loose ends you’ve already tied in your own brain.

I definitely think it is worth a read because of its uniqueness but there are some parts that drag a little in the middle. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

Thanks to Netgalley for a copy of this novel. All opinions above are my own.

What’s the last book you read that you weren’t sure how you felt about it even when you were finished?
