Black Iris by Leah Raeder

Black Iris - Leah Raeder


Brilliant, but fucked

Maddening

Darker than dark

Best mindfuck


I am not a patient person. This book tested that. I was contemplating a one star review halfway in. Because I was pissed! I needed answers and not knowing was irritating me. I felt played by the unreliable narrator and blindsighted by perfectly orchestrated, poetic writing. It surprises me to say this book took me out of my comfort zone, because I am good to read just about anything, but there were moments I could not finish this. No, my rating did not come easy. It was drained out of me, cleverly so.

Well played, Leah Raeder. Well played.
