The most wonderfully written car crash of a book I’ve ever read. I couldn’t look away and I couldn’t stop reading even when I wanted to.
Would I recommend it? No. It’s well done, but I just can’t recommend a book full of incest, I can’t do it.
The Favored Child
One of those books where you know the end. Right from the beginning you know the chances of a happily ever after are slim, very, very, slim. Then it gets worse, and you see the character falling into trap after trap and then end is coming and all of a sudden it’s back to the car crash that you just can’t look away from.
Would I recommend it? No. See recommendation above and add in verbal and physical abuse and a barn owl that says “whoo, whoo”
Would I recommend it? Well, you can’t just go read the last book of a trilogy, it’d make no sense whatsoever. This one almost made the rest worth it.
The end result:
While this won’t be a trio of books I’ll be highly recommending, my lack of recommendation is only due to the content. While they are clearly not for everyone I believe that they are remarkably well written, go read something else of Gregory’s I doubt you’ll be disappointed!
