OMG What Have I just read, Stranger By B Bennet is so heartbreakingly beautiful words just cannot describe it adequately and do it the justice it so deserves.
I really don’t want to spoil this first-rate piece of fiction for others, so I’m going to try to be as vague as possible while also conveying my thoughts and impressions of Stranger to you.
Before I do that a warning There are scenes of abuse (rape) in this story that you might find upsetting, if this is a trigger for you please avoid.
So a brief summary of the plot here is that after a very distressing experience Gabrielle is left for dead only to be discovered by our Beast.
A scared, half-mad individual who lives at the top of the hills overlooking the town where Gabrielle resides with her parents and sister.
The beast attempts to nurse Gabrielle back to health saving her and in the process manages to save himself also, as the two grow closer and bond over the abuse both have endured a sweet friendship develops between the two.
Stranger is a twisted outtake of the classic fairytale Beauty And The Beast, it makes for extremely compelling reading and this is one of those stories where the characters involved claw their way into your soul and burrow deep.
staying with you long after its over.
I loved Stranger from the second I started to read it, even though I ended up bawling my eyes out, even as it ripped my heart from my chest and stomped all over it.
I would still read stranger all over again.
This is an amazing read you need to experience, I just can’t believe it took me so long to get round to it. Give Stranger a go you won’t regret it.
