#Review ~ Asleep by Krystal Wade

Posted May 9, 2016 by Michelle in Review / 2 Comments

First Impression:

  • The synopsis had me, I actually thought it might be a sleeping beauty retelling.
  • The cover just looked super creepy.
  • The story was a lot slower than I would have hoped it to be but I think I get it.

The Story:

  • On her way to an asylum because her parents are worried about her.
  • Things get a little weird and your not sure what is real and what is fake.
  • I started to have doubts and trust issues when reading this. I really didn’t know who or what to trust
  • The story was slow building but it sort of add to the understanding of being insane and give you the doubt you need.
  • I just thought it was a little to much of a slow build and wasn’t progressing fast enough.
  • Even though the book was rather slow I still wanted to find out what was going to happen.
  • At about 60% is when you get the info dump, all at once explanation which actually wasn’t bad just wish it was sooner.
  • There are a LOT of twists and turn and I did enjoy the story some things really surprised me.
  • Actually glad I stayed until the end because I really like the way it was done.

The Characters:

  • Rose ~ I really liked her and sort of felt bad for her.
  • Greg, McGregory or Philip (Take your pick) ~ I thought he was just a little strange but likable.
  • Nurse Judy ~ She was a motherly woman, really loved her interactions with Rose.
  • Doctor Underwood ~ He reminded me of a typical doctor.

Lots of other characters in the book were interesting and I actually stuck around a lot because of wanting to see what happened to everyone.

Final Thoughts:

  • Really messes with your head.
  • I wasn’t a fan of the slow progress but I actually enjoyed the book.
  • With 3.5 stars, I would totally recommend, it is really a thriller that will totally mess with your head.
  • Recommend for Young Adult and Adults.


Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.

Have a great day and Happy Reading!
