    3.7 stars. (There are trigger warnings in this book, rape, mutilation, cannibalism and schizophrenia) This book really surprised me. I went Into this book blind and not knowing what to expect. You follow three different characters (Severin, Noola, and David). There was some really hard scenes to read, it was very interesting and kept me wanting me to read more, and some scenes are weird too, but in a good way. Some parts I was laughing, mainly on David’s story, he’s insane and it was really funn 3.7 stars.

Some parts I was laughing, mainly on David’s story, he’s insane and it was really funny. He hears voices in his head. Severin has a weird personality and Noola is a women who is trying to survive. Noolas story was hard to read about her survival. But this book isn’t anything Iv ever read and it was very interesting and I enjoyed reading it. Thank you Chris Adel for sending me this book.

I have to say that this book has very triggering subjects, like rape and genital mutilation. So if you want to give it a go, I don't recommend it to someone who is sensitive to those types of topics. I had some good laughs, mostly with the character David, but I cried through out the entire book. I finished this one in only two days, so it's a very quick and easy book to read, but it has some difficult words to understand (since English is not my first language) I had to Google some of them, but that is just me. 😂 Nevertheless is a good book! -- Thank you so much to Chris Adel for sending me this book. -- 🇵🇹 -- 3.5⭐⭐⭐⭐ -- A minha resenha: Fui ler este livro completamente às cegas, não sabia do que se tratava e devo dizer que fiquei impressionada, a história é diferente, interessante e está bem escrito. Devo dizer que este livro tem assuntos muito desencadeantes, como violação e mutilação genital. Então, se quiseres dar uma vista de olhos, não recomendo para quem seja sensível a este tipo de tópicos. Eu dei belas risadas, principalmente com a personagem de David, mas chorei durante todo o livro. Eu terminei esta leitura em apenas dois dias, ou seja é um livro muito rápido e fácil de ler, mas tem algumas palavras difíceis de entender (já que o Inglês não é minha primeira língua) eu tive que pesquisar algumas delas no Google, mas isso sou eu 😂 No entanto, é um bom livro! -- Muito obrigada Chris Adel pela cedência deste livro.

    This book positively surprised me! I didn't really know what to expect when I started, but this was definitely worth reading. The book follows three different characters; Noola, Severin and David. Noola is a girl looking for safety after her home village is razed down and burned to the ground. Severin is an author with odd personality. David is an architect who hears voices telling him to build a tower.

Noola is a girl looking for safety after her home village is razed down and burned to the ground. Severin is an author with odd personality. David is an architect who hears voices telling him to build a tower. The book touches a lot of difficult topics (genital mutilation, rape and cannibalism to name a few) though none of these is shown in detail. I feel like each chapter made me feel different things. One moment I couldn't stop smiling (mostly in David's chapters because well, he's kinda insane and it's hilarious) and the next I felt revolted and deeply touched(this was mostly in Noola's chapters)it's a weird book and there are some really weird scenes, but it's weird in an intriguing way. The story itself was great, and I found the writing very lively and engrossing. "Hope drove desperate people to irrational acts, like boarding a leaking ship. Only those utterly hopeless would put their trust in a ruin, held together by its varnish and nothing more. The fear of dying in crossfire outweighted the fear of drowning at sea."

    Thank you to the author for reaching out and sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! This was a highly fascinating story. Very different from what I normally read, this book was a trip from start to finish. Ultimately it was a story of raw, brutal survival and the sacrifices made by the woman who was trying to survive. It also showed how the people around her had been changed by her presence, be it either in a good way or a tragic one.

Very different from what I normally read, this book was a trip from start to finish. Ultimately it was a story of raw, brutal survival and the sacrifices made by the woman who was trying to survive. It also showed how the people around her had been changed by her presence, be it either in a good way or a tragic one. Adel explores humanity in a very fresh and different way, drawing pity from the reader in well-written prose. I also asked the author where they drew inspiration from, and they replied that they were appalled by the female circumcision that goes on in many cultures and they wanted to raise awareness of that. Adel also said that at the time of writing the story, they had lived in Japan, so there’s quite a few references to Japanese culture as well. Though different from my “normal” reading choices, it was quite enjoyable, although many scenes were quite bizarre. The author left the ending open for continuation, so I’m interested to see how the story will go on. All in all, this was a well-written book with very intriguing characters. Pick it up for yourself if you get the chance!
