Brugerbedømmelser af Ninth House

  • Martin L. 25. Juni 2020

    En absolut favorit!!

    Jeg kan ikke vente til bog to kommer ud!!!

    Intertekstualitet i Ninth House er fantastisk!! (jeg refererer til The Divine Comedy)
    Det er en mystisk bog spækket med plot-twists. Leigh har virkelig skrevet et mørkt fænomenalt mesterværk. Leighs skrivestil er eksemplarisk!
    Titlen for Goodreads Choice Award for bedste fantasy er så velfortjent ssom den nu kan være!

    Bogen tager sted i den virkelige verden med et paranormal aspekt som så veludført. Det er en bog der er utrolig relevant for nutiden der er også en øjenåbner. Efter jeg har læst den har jeg ikke kunne holde op med at tænke på den og tale om den. Ninth House berøre så mange dybe temaer som jeg tror der er mange som vil kunne relatere til. Bogen udforsker både stofmisbrug, seksuelt misbrug, mord og alt i alt en samfundskritisk fangende bog der er umulig at ligge ned.
