CORINA’S REVIEW

 

Remarkable. Incredible. Chilling. Heart-wrenching.

This audiobook was AMAZING!!!

I should start from the beginning: I received this book as an ARC, but when I found out that the book was partially formatted like a podcast I had to listen to the audiobook. Sine I love audiobooks, and I also have listened to my share of podcasts, so I knew that the audiobook would be vastly different from any other audiobooks I’ve ever listened to. In other words this book was meant to be an audiobook. It’s incredibly formatted, perfectly executed and addicting in the very best way.

Sadie was an incredible novel that surprised the heck out of me.

The writing was fascinating, on point, and the story on its own will stay with me for a very long time, especially the ending. The format of the book was absolutely unique, and unapologetically original – that alone should be a reason to pick up this book.

Sadie’s voice was distinctive and incredibly honest, and she stayed true to herself throughout the entire book. She was a character that carried a burden that nobody should have been forced to carry. It was so very easy to emphasize with her. Although she was emotionally closed off, Sadie was a tough cookie, and she had only one goal in mind. Whatever the outcome, she was on a mission and I have to respect that. Nevertheless I just wish she would have allowed herself to ask for help.

Consequently Sadie’s story was heart wrenchingly raw. And thanks to the author’s original voice the entire book was refreshingly different. For one thing Sadie felt like a true crime report, including interviews of witnesses and research.  It also felt partly like a diary. But combined they told an incredible story about a young girl’s harrowing journey.

I still can’t believe how well this book was written, and how amazingly different the format was. Ultimately the hype around this book is well deserved. Not only is the writing superb, the story was fantastically plotted, and the execution something that is rarely accomplished. But the ending was what made this book an unforgettable experience.

With this in mind, I can’t wait to see what the author comes up with next.

 


Sadie – Courtney Summers

BLURB

Sadie hasn’t had an easy life. Growing up on her own, she’s been raising her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water.

But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie’s entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister’s killer to justice and hits the road following a few meagre clues to find him.

When West McCray—a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America—overhears Sadie’s story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie’s journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it’s too late.
