Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Feel Me Fall by James Morris. First of all, I would like to thank the author for kindly providing me with a copy of this book. Secondly, I urge everyone to go pick up this book IMMEDIATELY. This book is like a Netflix show that you could just binge watch in one sitting or a movie where you are hooked from the minute it starts. It’s that good.
I’m honestly not surprised that I loved this book because I was a HUGE Lost fan. (Except for the end, because what even was that?) So when I read the description and came across words like “plane crash”, “jungle”, “stranded”, “sole survivor”, “betrayals” I was more than ready to give this book a shot. And boy am I glad I did.
This book revolves around Emily, who is the sole survivor of a plane crash that her and some of her classmates were on. Although she is labeled as the sole survivor there are other friends/students, six in total, who initially survive the crash and so begins the story of forbidden love, loss, lies, newfound friendships, survival, and betrayals that can cut deeper than any knife. One of the reasons this book was such a fun read was because of the writing style. Morris, takes readers to the past, the time of the crash and the days following, and the present. In the past we learn about the relationships the students had with one another prior to the plane crash. During the crash and while in the jungle we learn A LOT about who these students really are while put under immense amounts of pressure to survive. And in the present we learn how Emily is coping with what really happened and how some secrets are better kept in the jungle. On top of the writing style being so great I also think that what made the story even better was reading about six people at once it. Trust me, it never once got confusing who was who. That is key for someone like me!
The plot twists in this book were INSANE, and there were a lot. However, it never felt like it was too much. It was more of a “annnnnnd the plot thickens” deviously rubbing your hands together moment. I’m pretty sure on Goodreads I had at least two updates of me basically screaming in all caps how wild this book was. The entire time I read this book I was sold that it was a solid four star read because it felt like something was missing. I should have known the author would have one more trick up his sleeve. And by trick, I mean he had my jaw on the damn floor! The ending was perfect. He totally nailed it and I was so happy but at the same time I need some answers!! My biggest questions is WHAT NOW?!?! We definitely need a few more answers!
All in all, this was such a different read than the books I normally stick to but I am so glad I branched out and give this a shot!
Once again, I would like to thank the author for a copy of this book, I’m so glad I had the opportunity to read this because it truly did not disappoint.
Until next time!
