Book Review for: Why She Lied by Julie Coons
By SAMAMA, Jul 27 2019 07:46AM
Why She Lied had very powerful messages about the 21th century abduction and slavery, the information I found in this story about our world today shocked me enough to make it feel like a punch in the face! The rate of abductions of women and girls and then slavery is way much higher than it was when SLAVERY WAS LEGAL around 200 years ago. This information disgusts me, and it saddens me.
As I kept reading, the story slowly started getting very dark and intense, but something felt missing. Even though the story felt interesting and eye opening, the writing could’ve been so much better.
I never wanted to say this because the story has been genuinely interesting, but it really could’ve been portrayed better. I couldn’t find the connection with any of the characters while reading even though I wanted to, and usually I don’t have to try so hard to get connected.
I had to skim through the last couple of chapters, only because the main character kept repeating the same questions and same issues she went through constantly, so much that at a point it simply felt frustrating.
2 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐
I really wish I could give this book a better rating, but then I would be lying.
