Force of Nature by Jane Harper book review


Force of Nature by Jane Harper book review

Force of Nature by Jane Harper book review

Force of Nature by Jane Harper book this is Jane Harper second book and the second book in the Aaron Fock series I think is what they're calling it her first book was the DRI which I read last year 

I really enjoyed this one but I think I loved this one even more than that so in this story you are following this group of people who are going on this like corporate team building type retreat together 

they are going hiking in the woods and the group is split up so there are five women who are all going to be going on a specific path together then there are 

I believe five men who are going on a path together and they are supposed to meet up at the end of the trail around three to four days later and then just like head back to their city at the end of the day

so the story starts off with these men who are waiting at the end of this trip for the women to show up so that way they can write back in the band together and it's hours before anyone is shows up and only four out of the five girls end up coming out of the woods this obviously sets off 

this huge manhunt and search in these woods in order to find this missing fifth woman and no one really knows what exactly happened while these women were in the woods so this isn't just like a basic missing person story because the woman who goes missing in the woods was actually an informant to Aaron 

Fox who is like a FBI type of guy except you know it's not the FBI because they're in Australia and she was reporting and providing information to Aaron Fox and his partner about to the company that she works 

for and specifically like the people who were on this trip with her the entire time you as a reader as well as like Aaron Bock and his partner are wondering did something happen on accident or did somebody do something on purpose and potentially find out that 

she was an informant and try to stop her so yeah that's like the basic synopsis of this book the way the story is structured is you are following the main timeline where they are searching for this missing woman and then you also flash back in time and follow the group as they go through this trip 

you get to see what actually occurred it's very clear that a lot of things happened amongst these women that they are not divulging necessarily and so as the story continues you get more and more information about what exactly occurred and obviously it all gets resolved eventually 

so yeah so like I said I really enjoyed this book a lot it's funny if you watched my review of dominicana which I posted last week I like raved about that book and how much I loved that book and I actually started that book and this book on the same day kind of on accident like 

I brought dominicana with me to work to read during my lunch break but then I had like this random lull in my workday where I couldn't really like pull out a book and read so I download an e-book on my phone to kind of like past the 20 minutes I had and for some nature happen to be available 

I was like hey I have a physical copy of that might as well download that to read it and holy cow this book hooked me from the very beginning like I wanted to wish I didn't bring them in a kind of me kind of so that way

I could read force of nature but then Dominican I ended up being great as well so hey and so kind of like trying to balance my own interests in reading force of nature and dominicana but both of them 

I adored so much and like I said I think I ended up liking this one more than the dry which kind of surprised me because I really enjoyed the dry the reason why I think I enjoyed this one

so much more is because it's much more of a plot based puzzle sort of mystery which is kind of what I always like I mean I don't always want things that are purely plot based 

I think Jane Harper does a great job of balancing plot and character in this story but the dry is very like atmospheric and very much a slow burn sort of story which is great but because this book like just gripped me from the beginning and because 

I think the summer has been kind of a slower reading experience for me having a book gripped me so fast and keep my attention for so long make me want to just like cancel all of my plans and just sit and read a book like it's been a very long time since I felt that and for some nature did that for me

I think the flashing back and forth and time between the current day search as well as what happened on the trip was really smart because it allowed Jane Harper to reveal information slowly to the reader 

while keeping information hidden from the police officers and whatnot who are searching you obviously know as a reader that something happened and it's not really sure what 

so I feel like Jane Harper did a really great job of like slowly divulging information she does the thing where she like leaves information kind of hanging at the end of chapters which usually annoys me but in this book it worked really really well and like 

I said Jane Harper does a great job of creating these characters who have a lot of layers and one of the great things about having characters with all of those layers is that there are so many potential possibilities of what happened on this trip and 

there are more and more layers that keep getting revealed and you keep wondering always this the reason why this character went missing or is it one of the other details that has been revealed earlier is a more straightforward all of these different things and I'm someone 

while I read this book pretty fast so I wasn't trying to like guess what happened and I'm also someone who generally doesn't try to guess what happens so personally I didn't see the ending coming or the way things wrapped up coming although I have heard other people say that 

I think that this is enough of a like fun mystery thriller that you should just be able to like go along for the ride and really enjoy what is put out here I think if you like the dry or maybe if you were kind of like in the middle about the dry you should definitely give this book a chance because 

I think it's a very different type of mystery book and so if you are someone who enjoys your books to have a little bit more plot to them or a little bit more action to them then the drive and this one made me up here alley so yeah 

I give this a 4 out of 5 stars I thought it was fantastic it might have even been like a four and a half star book for me I really enjoyed this one a lot and this definitely solidifies like Harper as an author that 

I'm going to keep up with I'm very excited to pick up the lost man I probably won't get to it till next year to be completely honest but I know now that I'm definitely gonna be picking up whatever else she puts out just like I do with like Tana French and Attica Locke so that is everything 

I have for you guys this week let me know down in the comments below if you were read Jane Harper at all and if you've read the force of nature specifically and if you've read like all of her books.

Lucy and Linh by Alice Pung Book Review

  Lucy and Linh by Alice Pung Book Review  Lucy and linh by alice pung it came out a number of years ago at this point. It was originally published in australia in 2014 and then came out in the united states in 2016.  And it's one of those books that i've had sitting on my like library tbr list that i keep for about that a lot amount of time, and i've been like slowly trying to chip away at that thing.  But yes, i was originally interested in this book because it hits a lot of ideas and themes that i really enjoy. It is set in australia and you are following this girl as she gets entrance into this really exclusive private school, all girls private school.  And so you follow lucy over the course of a single school year as she transfers to this new school and her experiences with it. So it's like a coming-of-age story, as you would expect, and it's also about sort of like the atmosphere and world inside of this private school.  There is like this group of girls calle

His Only Wife by Peace Adzo Medie book review

  His Only Wife by Peace Adzo Medie book review His Only Wife by Peace Adzo Medie  So first up i have thorn by intisar khanani. And this is a fantasy book that is also apparently a fairy tale retelling of this fairy tale called the goose girl, which i have literally never heard of before.  So i will not be talking at all about like the retelling aspect of it because i've never heard of this fairy tale before.  I also don't really know anything about fairy tales beyond the ones that were made into disney movies.  But as a young adult fantasy book, i really enjoyed it. However i also need to say that i'm the type of person who really enjoys young adult fantasy books that are like super slow-moving and like nothing really happens for a lot of the book and stuff like that.  So i recognize now after reading a bunch of different young adult fantasy books that my preferences in young adult fantasy very often don't align with other people.  So in this book you are following thi

Dominicana by Angie Cruz Book review

  Dominicana by Angie Cruz Book review Dominicana by Angie Cruz. This is a new release. I think it comes out in like September 3rd or like early September. But it was actually released a little bit early through book of the month.  I usually am not great about reading my book of the month books right away all the time. But it was kind of just like sitting there and I had like a free day and I was like,  I'm just gonna grab this one because it's on the top of my multiple piles of unread books. And I was immediately hooked. So in this story you are following this girl named Ana CanciĆ³n and it starts off while she is 15 years old and living in the Dominican Republic.  And it takes place in like the 1960s. So yeah, she's about 15 years old and the story starts off with her talking about how basically she knows that her parents are going to force her to marry this specific man who is significantly older.  I think he's like in his 30s. And it's mainly because like it'
