About this deal

This one will be tough to review without spoilers due to the nature of the story, so I’ll keep it brief and vague. Mel's religious parents insist she must keep the baby, whilst Sid's feminist mum pushes for a termination.

which is ironic because i was enjoying it at the beginning and i believed it had potential to be a five star read, but then i quickly changed my mind after reading a few pages. Because everyone there has secrets- it's simply a matter of figuring out whose is scandalous enough to kill for.I do wish we got to see more of Arthur and Maddy’s personalities, but I understand that it was important for them to not be explored in depth until the end for the sake of the plot, and the reveals definitely made that worth it! There’s definitely a lack of character development in Five Survive compared to the author’s previous trilogy, which could be due to the fact that this is a standalone novel, but I had trouble keeping each person separated as they all sounded exactly the same. Eighteen year old Red and her friends are on a road trip in an RV, heading to the beach for Spring Break. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The resolution of the entire mystery is over the top and wild, which isn’t a deal breaker for me, but here it felt as if the author was attempting to reach a more adult audience while writing a YA novel, and it just clashed.

However, when the sniper reveals himself and asks simply for a secret that one of the friends is keeping, it sets all of them against each other. The start reserves a seat for you in there, where you explore the personalities of characters, and endure the manifest to be at the campsite for a stop ASAP. This book would be perfect for those interested in dark drama's with murder, plenty of tension, interesting characters each with their own secret, trauma and family history.

Becky Chambers's new series continues to ask: in a world where people have what they want, does having more even matter?

PLUS, the whole story takes place in less than 24 hours inside an RV which is such a unique concept, setting, and timeline. red - she annoyed me but i also felt so bad for her can my emotions not be a mess for once 😭 i just want to hug her. i absolutely loved the A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder trilogy (i gave 5 stars to all the three books) so i was sure i would love this one too — and well, as you can see, i didn’t. I think the secret and at least one of the reveals was a bit obvious, but I was shocked by the other plot twists and the balance between the two was incredibly enjoyable.His arrogance isn't just something that happens on the side, it's glaringly apparent on almost every page which grated every single nerve in my body.

Simon more so than Maddy, because I feel he had more personality and he made me laugh multiple times. Buried secrets are forced to light in the cramped, claustrophobic setting of the RV, and tensions within the group will reach deadly levels. While Five Survive has a completely different feel than AGGG, it still showcases Jackson's fluid and engaging writing style. I definitely felt a host of emotions while reading her other books, but this one was a little different. All the characters were written well in this book which I thought wouldn't be possible given the 8 hours of the plot.Pip and Ravi are still, and always will be, my favorite couple in a murder mystery/thriller book because as I've said before, I HATE romance in mystery books, but I'm just glad that this wasn't the main focus in this, though that ending letter sure was. She lives in London and aside from reading and writing, she enjoys playing video games and watching true crime documentaries so she can pretend to be a detective. The secondary characters are interchangeable with the exception of one being so awful that I kept hoping the rest of the characters would toss him out of the RV just so we didn't have to hear from him again. Mel and Sid are determined to do this together, but they soon discover that pregnancy is totally different for boys and girls. There is a lot to really enjoy in this story and there is great energy to the writing, as well as some fine characterization' – Peter James, award-winning and no.
