Split Book 52

*Flash to Beth levitating as gold coins drop all around her like when u beat level 13 in Mario Bros. (Yes, I know this dates me). I finished the project with 6 hours to spare!* WOOHOOO

Now for a brief (and I do mean brief) review of Book 52. Split is a book that deals with domestic violence, but what I liked about it was that it didn't just deal with the abuse. It dealt with what the abuse does to a person. How child abuse still affects the victim in adulthood and I thought it addressed this quite well dealing with all the complex angles of it. I also liked that it dealt with the relationships of two siblings who grew up in an abusive home and how they relate and interact with each other.

I didn't like that it was in the present because as previously mentioned it just annoys me. Also, there were some things I didn't find believable and I thought the abusive father was a bit overplayed.

It's a good book. I recommend it.


  1. Wonderful review. Do you have a book cover pic? Happy New Year :-D

  2. First of all, congratulations on meeting your challenge of reviewing 52 books! I find books about abuse really tough to read. Maybe I'm too sensitive. I give you credit for being open to reading it.

  3. congrats on finishing your challenge - you should be really proud!

  4. Thanks for the review and I am thrilled that you finished your project. I might have to add that to my TBR pile.
