REVIEW: Suicide Club

"..she thought there was something wrong with her because she sought the messy, sprawling innards of life, the flesh beneath the skin, the breakages."


⭐️⭐️⭐️


The premise of this book hooked me straight away. It's based on a future New York where the human race has almost achieved immortality, but only for the high classes and a group forms against this.


I think it's important to emphasise from the start that I still gave this 3 stars, and a definitely enjoyed it. However, I did have a few issues. Firstly, I felt that the title was a bit misleading because the Club itself is not really the main focus. I was expecting more political upheaval/revolution but that wasn't really the case. Secondly, I felt like perhaps it didn't reach my high expectations. It felt like the idea of the novel was actually more exciting than the finished product. In a similar vein, I didn't feel like there was enough going on to warrant the 350-odd page length. I did find myself rushing to finish it so I could start a new book which is never what you want.


That all said, it was a good book. The characters were interesting and the writing was skilled. For a debut author, Rachel Heng shows a lot of potential.
