ARC BOOK REVIEW
OMG, What was that!
This was a complete brain frazzle and I am still busy analysing the shit out of it internally.
I’m not even sure which category of fiction this fits best into; as it contains a bit of everything; a sort of crossover and blurring of the genre lines.
If I had to take a stab at it; Mmm maybe a Dark psychological ghost story with romantic elements.
There is definitely a love story involved here, but it might not be quite what you’re actually expecting.
If I had to give you one piece of sound advice going in here; it would be to start this with no preconceptions; just to go with it; don’t try to second guess; just experience this story as its meant to be told and keep an open mind throughout.
I went through a kaleidoscope of emotions during “The Spiral” and just when I thought I had a handle on things, events would veer swiftly in a completely opposite direction.
“The Spiral” even made me cry; which I really bloody hate.
I ran the gauntlet of despair, heartbreak, humour and Love.
Witnessed the depths people can sink in there ultimate despondency and anguish and also the hope that can bleed through to new beginnings.
I know I am not making much actual sense here; but I’m trying really hard to convey my opinion without going into specific details; hope I’m succeeding somewhat.
If you’ve read Charlotte Hart before well throw those expectations out of the window; this is the polar opposite to anything you would be expecting from her; I’m a massive fan of this authors books and “The Spiral” for me was one I equally devoured but for wholly different reasons.
A fantastic experience but also a totally new direction for this talented author.
I could easily see this on the big screen; imagine the chilling atmospheric intensity that could be achieved in such a setting; it would be so eerily seductive and appealing to the viewer; one I would so watch; definitely my cup of tea.
Charlotte Hart narrates this style of fiction just as beautifully as her other specialities.
The prose used here was enthralling and captivating; pulling me into its dark web and weaving such a fantastical intricate tale; I’m truly impressed.
So right I could go on and on here; so much did I enjoy this; But I’m just going to leave you with this and it’s so simple.
Just Read “The Spiral” And make up your own mind; Enter Blandenhyme estate at your own risk and dally with The Mysteriously Tragic Mr Caldwell and his lamentable moods.
Spend time with Maddy as she strives towards a finale; which honestly; she’s no clues upon final destination; I was truly quite amazed with where I eventually landed.
I actually felt that ending was really a beginning of a whole new chapter for Maddy; one she truly deserves.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of “The Spiral” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
