‘I pictured her sticking her finger down her throat and bringing it back up later.
Derek asked, “Anything to drink with that?”
No, I didn’t spit in her food. That’s gross. But I did wipe her bun on the bottom of my shoe.’
Secrets and survival in the Amazon
Emily Duran is the sole survivor of a plane crash that left her and her teenage friends stranded and alone in the jungles of the Amazon. Lost and losing hope, they struggle against the elements, and each other. With their familiar pecking order no longer in place, a new order emerges, filled with power struggles, betrayals, secrets and lies. Emily must explain why she's the last left alive.
But can she carry the burden of the past?
Discover the gripping new adventure novel that explores who we are when no one is watching, and how far we'll go in order to survive.
I was contacted by James Morris himself to read Feel Me Fall in exchange for an honest review so here we go.
Feel Me Fall is a fantastic novel. From the very first page I was hooked and whenever I had a free moment, i.e. waiting for the bus, walking home, I had my Kindle out reading it (whilst I was walking, which I’m really chuffed with achieving). Emily is a relatable character, give or take a few obstacles that she goes through *cough* messing around with her teacher *cough*. So what she goes through and does you can’t help but feel sorry for her and understand the actions she takes.
Just a little bit after halfway, Derek (the possible bad guy, depending on your train of thought) begins to kill off all the males in the group by making it look like accidents and then even when a native stumbles across them and starts to lead them to civilisation Derek then kills him as well and destroys the only slither of hope the girls had for survival. This is very similar to what happens in the wild when a male feels threatened by another potential mate and attacks them to reinstate is position as the leader.
Overall, everyone needs to read this book. Like right now.
