REVIEW: The Rending and the Nest

“In the end, looking closely, without judgment or expectation, is one of the few things we can control, and it is the one act that reveals the heart of the world”


I’m still not 100% sure on how to feel about this book. Dystopian is my favourite style of fiction, so when I read the blurb I knew it was something I fancied. But this one is based about 2-5 years since the period of time where everything changed and never explained what happened. This didn’t necessarily bother me, but there was a lot of other aspects to the story which also weren’t explained, leaving me a little stumped.

I also felt like the ending was a bit of an anti-climax. There were definitely moments of brilliance, especially with the actual writing itself. She was a skilled writer, but the storytelling for me, was a little off.

I think I would be inclined to read her future work though because the bones of her writing are excellent and I do see a future to it.
