Patient Twenty-nine.

A monster roams the halls of Soothing Hills Asylum. Three girls dead. 29 is endowed with the curse…or gift of perception. She hears messages in music, sees lyrics in paintings. And the corn. A lifetime asylum resident, the orchestral corn music is the only constant in her life.

Mason, a new, kind orderly, sees 29 as a woman, not a lunatic. And as his belief in her grows, so does her self- confidence. That perhaps she might escape, might see the outside world.

But the monster has other plans. The missing girls share one common thread...each was twenty-nine's cell mate.

Will she be next?

First Impression:

  • Love the cover, it’s so pretty.
  • This is an author I read before and enjoyed so I was looking forward to reading something else from her.
  • I like her writing style and her characters, this book had some great characters.

The Story:

  • Is hard to explain without giveaway a lot of spoilers. It has a LOT of twists and turns. When you think you believe one thing something else makes you question what you thought.
  • One part during the book I got really confused (closer to the end) I am not sure if I read it correctly or if because this was an unedited version the format wasn’t correct. I got so confused and had to re read it a few times. It didn’t ruin the story for me but it did make me have to really pay attention while I was reading the rest.
  • The story is heartbreaking at times and I believe it had a bit of a classic book twist just can’t tell you which one, or again, will be giving it away.
  • One or two of the spellings I thought was wrong but when I looked it up I realized that in older times this was how it was spelled. I had no idea 🙂
  • I really enjoyed the flow and how involved I was in these characters lives especially Patient Twenty-Nine. As the mystery of her life starts to unfold I got more engrossed it how it would all come together.
  • I do how the formatting in the final book is better only because I think a few of the parts gets rather confusing.

The Characters:

  • This part is a little hard to explain since starting the book I thought one thing but then realized something else later. I really loved her characters and this is told in a few POVs. I will admit a few times I got a little confused as to who was talking but overall I really enjoyed them and loved Patient Twenty-Nine.

Final Thoughts:

  • Even with a few confusing parts I really thought this book was good. I actually enjoyed all the characters and am eager to read the next one in the series.
  • I would love to do a spoiler version of this book because OMG I have so much I want to talk about 🙂
  • I recommend this book to YA and adult. This is an intense ride and had me on the edge of my seat debating whether I should stop reading or not.

 

Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.

Have a great day and Happy Reading!
