I haven’t posted a book review in a while and it’s only because I’ve been super busy and the fact that I was on a reading slump did not help me. But I think I am out of the funk now and I’ll be sharing more book related content moving forward. If you have any recommendations on what you’d like to see more of, don’t hesitate to let me know.
Which book did you recently complete? Let’s talk in the comments section.
Title: The Good Sister
Author: Chris Morgan Jones
Published: 10 July 2018
Publisher: Pan Macmillan SA
Genre: Fiction, Thriller, Mystery
Morgan Jones’ heart-stopping thriller, The Good Sister, sees one father go further than he ever knew possible, to rescue a daughter who doesn’t want to be saved.
A missing daughter. A desperate father. A journey to save them both.
Sofia Mounir’s world is not her own. Her mother is sick, her father broken, the London they live in is dying of greed and self-obsession.
So she flees, to Raqqa: heart of the caliphate, foundation stone of a just world that she will help to build. From violence and sacrifice will grow something beautiful, and she will be part of it. Her faith will be equal to everything asked of her.
Until it isn’t. Until it becomes clear that not all her new brothers’ and sisters’ intentions are as pure as her own. Until even her faith becomes a liability.
Where do you turn, when the future you’ve longed for wants you dead?
The writing is just phenomenal, knowing that this book is by a male English writer who might not know much about the topic at hand really amazes me. From the pace of the book and the content you can see the amount of work and research that went to the story. Every aspect that happens throughout the book brings together the whole story.
The portrayal of relationships is just awesome. The father daughter relationships is depicted perfectly whereby we get to see a father going through the extremes in order to get to his daughter. It’s the type of love that can withstand anything. He could’ve given up when challenges came through but the strength revealed throughout was just perfect.
The overall plot or story line is somewhat difficult to phantom and some of the things women get to experience gets you thinking about how privileged we are to be living in a time whereby none of those things are happening especially where I’m from. I’ve never read a book about religion that is outside my own religion. I learnt a few things and how much people are willing to dedicate their lives to God yet others can manipulate that for their own benefit.
The book introduces a lot of supporting characters and some of those I got so invested in them.
Jones did an amazing job with this book but I feel like we need to know what happens after. From the way this book ended I feel like we need a follow up lool. Any who, I really loved this book and would truly recommend it. I have no idea why it took me so long to read this book but anyways at the time maybe I wouldn’t have enjoyed it in as much as I did when I read it last week.
Those were my thoughts, would you read this book or have you read it? If so, let’s talk about it in the comments section.
