Smack
by Melvin Burgess

View in Library Catalog



The story starts off with Gemma and Tar, two friends that are devoted to each other. They wind up on the streets of Bristol and end up tangled up with lily and rob, which is just bad news. It details the spiral of their first interaction with chasing the dragon and you can see that despite their thinking that they have it under control, they don’t. A good read for young adults, I think a bit too dark for young teens. Melvin Burgess is a fantastic writer as well.

Newlyweds Tricia and Ethan are searching for the house of their dreams. But when they visit the remote manor that once belonged to Dr. Adrienne Hale, a renowned psychiatrist who vanished without a trace four years earlier, a violent winter storm traps them at the estate… with no chance of escape until the blizzard comes to an end. In search of a book to keep her entertained until the snow abates, Tricia happens upon a secret room. One that contains audio transcripts from every single patient Dr. Hale has ever interviewed. As Tricia listens to the cassette tapes, she learns about the terrifying chain of events leading up to Dr. Hale’s mysterious disappearance. A fast-paced book with multiple twists and turns. I was taking guesses about the end early on in the book and was still surprised by some of the plot. While not necessarily likeable, the characters were well-fleshed out. Definitely an interesting read.

This book was hilarious! Full of riddles and based around folktales that even I have heard, I really enjoyed reading about something I was familiar with. 100 out of 10, everyone should read this.
