I continue to read because of books like this. I am always searching for that 5 star read that will pull every emotion from me. I found it in this book. This genre is hard to pull off, without letting the crazy outshine the characters and plot. Tarryn’s writing is the perfect balance. Her characters aren’t cheesy, but authentic and believable in my opinion. This. Book. did so many things to my head and heart. I was speechless after the last word. I pretty much read this in one sitting as I couldn’t put it down. Page after page I was pulled deeper into Fig’s world. I knew Fig was crazy going in. But I never expected the beautiful convoluted disaster this book turned out to be. It was freakin fantastic. I either loved every minute or loved to hate every minute. I don’t know if I learned life lessons while reading this. But I learned never to piss Tarryn Fisher off. She will make a beautiful fool out of you, and put it on display for the world to see. This was my last read of the year and I went out with a bang!!!!!!!!
Ok, this book has me questioning my baby’s name. Is the name Taryn a bad omen for her future? This book was INSANE, literally insane. It could only be the brain child of a person equally insane. From the very first page, it was evident that Fig was deranged, so deranged that it was difficult to read at times. However, this book took turns and let us get into the thoughts of the other characters who appeared to have it together from one perspective. Tarryn Fisher says herself that this book would be unbelievable because it was too crazy, but I disagree. These characters were well developed and completely believable. There were parts that were hard to read because Fig was so crazy, but this book was unputdownable. I had to see where this went and what happened next. This was a great way to end 2016!
