Book Review: The Nesting by C.J. Cooke

Oooh I really liked this one… From the opening pages I was completely drawn in. I couldn’t tell what the genre was supposed to be – horror? supernatural? psychological? family drama? thriller? – and loved that about it.

I think the mysteries underlying all of the events – are they reliable narrators? are both women crazy? is someone trying to make them think they’re crazy? who’s the good guy/bad guy? – were a large part of what I found so compelling about this story (as were the stories-within-the-story, as I am not that familiar with Norse fairy tales). The other was the characters. They jumped off the page, in all their fractured, held-together-by-tape glory…

This was my first C.J. Cooke title but will definitely not be the last. Her writing style is engaging and her pacing here was spot-on. This was a fabulous read!

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.
