Six months ago, I was happy. I was simply Naomi Carradine.
One month ago, I was admitted into a psych ward.
Yesterday, Lachlan visited me. Kissed me. And told me that I’m starting to lose my mind.
Hours later, Max haunted my thoughts, reminding me I’m not crazy and that he needs my help.
A few minutes ago, I drifted further from reality, trying to unravel the past.
And now…everyone thinks I’m insane. But, I know he’s real, and I know he needs me.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Unravel was my first Calia Read experience. How come no one told me the awesomeness of her writing?
Let me just say from the first paragraph I was captured in her writing. We aren’t even talking the story here, just the writing. It is absolutely beautiful, captivating, and raw. Pure poetry. Calia Read’s weaves her words into emotions that come alive. She has permanently etched her literary soul on me.
The characters… oh the characters. Throughout the entire story I kept trying to find a way to find an open window or door into who they were—they wouldn’t let me until they were ready. Each chapter Calia Read peeled back another layer exposing her characters. The beauty in her characters was not so much who finally got to see who they were, rather you saw how many parts of them changed, evolved, slipped away, came back… Unravels characters made you not want to put down the book. I was hungry for more of the story because I wanted to see what compartment of a particular character I was going to see in any given chapter.
The story itself… stunning. The twists, the quirks, the complexity made such a breathtaking read. When you thought you had something figured out, the next page would tell you that you didn’t. Unravel although quite intricate and multi-faceted was not difficult to follow. It is well written, eloquent and organic. Calia Read didn’t rely on a typical formula; she didn’t rely on perfectly imperfect characters. This book relied solely on the characters and what they had to say. There were moments I felt like I should feel a certain way but couldn’t because I was so involved in the story. I was rendered awestruck.
Calia Read’s UNRAVEL is a definite book worth having in your library.
Calia Read lives in Germany with her husband and their four kids.
She’s currently working on the third book in the Sloan Brothers Series, Ruin You Completely.
