"Sheryl Crow is so full of poo. The first cut most certainly is not the deepest."
In The Stillness isn't pretty. It's dark, gritty, emotional, horrifying, but hopeful. Andrea doesn't hold back with In The Stillness, she puts everything out there and it's up to you to suck it up and roll with it. I did and I don't regret a single second. The opening scene is of Natalie cutting.. shocking way to start a book yes, but did it work? Totally. I was pretty much hooked from then on and didn't stop reading until I'd finished.
In The Stillness was different in the sense that there were two guys/heroes to speak of. We have Eric who is currently Natalie's husband and Ryker, who we later meet, who is an ex boyfriend of Natalie's. I won't say too much about Eric because to be honest, he was a 'not very nice man'. I had bad vibes from him to start with but I didn't know why. I just knew I didn't like him and wanted Natalie to rid herself of him.
And then we meet Ryker.. ♥
I have to mention first, this book is written in the present tense but when Natalie is thinking about stuff we shift back to the past, experiencing it as it happens. The transition between the past and present was flawless, I never once got confused and I knew where we were at all times.
Back to Ryker.. as I said, in present tense he was an ex of Natalie's who we knew very little about, as we went back in the past we learnt about him bit by bit and I fell in love. Hard. Cutting a long story short (I want you to experience it for youselves) Ryker is sent off to Afghanistan, yep, he's in the army. Awful stuff happens over there. Real, awful, heartbreaking stuff and when he comes home from war he's a different person. Completely.Read more ›
Another reason maybe I left it so long to read was because of that awful cover! It was dull, boring and depressing. However, I am so glad I eventually read this, as the book is far from any of those things!
I loved Ryker. I felt sorry for Natalie's husband Eric - how he was treated by Natalie (or how they treated each other) but I felt no connection to him like I did with Ryker.
A great read, a beautiful, heartbreaking story about a second chance love. Not as captivating as I would have liked so, not a 5 star from me.
This is a book that is really worth reading if you like fiction about ordinary lives and not fancy millionaires.
This book follows the life of Natalie, she is a cutter...this in itself leads me into unchartered territory, sure I have read about it in books before but this book dragged you into her thoughts, her emotions, her life and mental wellbeing and sometimes it was not pretty.
I will start at the beginning, in college Natalie fell in love with a boy, the kind of head over heels in love and the feeling was entirely mutual, he was in the National Guard. After a few months of dating 9/11 happened and Ryker was sent off to war..he watched his best friend die in his arms and got shot trying to rescue him but it was too late. Ryker was sent home..but what came home....
"His body came home, but his soul had been devoured in the firefight of a godless desert"
Ryker had a bad case of PTSD, he was not the same when he came home, they tried to make it work but Ryker needed help and he was not willing to go and get it, so even though she loved him with all her being, she had to let him go.
Years later whilst in Uni doing her degree, Natalie meets Eric, they begin a relationship...was she ever in love him, I don't think so, her heart never really belonged to anyone other than Ryker..but Eric loved her.Read more ›
The author has written something wonderful down. Its beautiful, even though its dark.
The point where dark meets the light? This book is something like that.
The summary doesn't give you much, but its ok I guess.. You should still read this book; because the story is bloody amazing.
Its like you're reading someone's private diary. Reading through their thoughts, feeling their emotions.
I can't give it a 5* because I really didn't like the characters, I like the plot but really couldn't "connect" with the characters.
Was it something I'm used to reading every day? NO!
Was it hot and smutty? NO!
Did I love the heroine and totally relate to her? NO!
Did I still get totally captivated and sucked into it? YES!
And that is why you should read this book.
