The Mercies by Kiran Millwood Hargrave

Image of the front cover of the ebook version of The Mercies by Kiran Millwood Hargrave. The book cover features the book title in bold and a floral pattern surrounding it. The ebook is displayed on a Amazon Kindle Paperwhite that is laid on a pastel coloured background that features small drawers. Alongside the image is a title that reads 'Review, The Mercies by Kiran Millwood Hargrave www.chatterfox.co.uk'

The Mercies is the tale of a small coastal fishing village that suffers a great tragedy, one that disrupts the entire nature of the people that live there. An almighty storm killing almost all the men and leaving the women behind to grieve, strive and ultimately aim to survive the harsh realities of their new lives. Help arrives from foreign shores, shores that are ran by patriarchies and religious zealots. What will happen to the women of Vardo? 

Never Let Me Go By Kazuo Ishiguro

A kindle paperwhite e reader device laid on a background of various paste coloured books. The book on the kindle is Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro and has a close up image of a girl's face looking to the right.


Where do I start with this one. I'm a bit stumped. I read the glowing reviews and I loved the dystopian concept of a segment of human society created purely to donate to others but this book just felt so far away from the dystopian fiction I usually love. I feel like Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro is going to divide people, you're going to love it or you're not and I'm definitely in the 'don't love it' section of society.
