Review:

The Many was an intense, compelling read, for the most part. I rushed through the pages and I was so enthralled I wanted to read it in one go.

However, it was especially exciting during the first half or so of the book. Once the two main characters got together, I found myself questioning why the story was being taken a certain way because it did not make sense. Quite frankly, from then on it only went downhill.

There were still some moments when I gripped my e-reader a little too hard, but ultimately the resolution felt so messy. Almost as if the author had a tremendously good idea but came to a blank as to how to execute an end to it.
Also, the book needs reviewing before being published; there are words missing, wrong character names are used, etc.

If you can get past the disappointing ending, The Many can be a thrilling, chilling, unexpected read. It really is a shame it didn’t end differently.

Disclaimer: I would like to thank the publisher and Netgalley for providing me a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

  1. It’s always a real shame when a really promising premise suddenly falls apart. Of all the glitches to experience in a book, this is the one I most loathe. Hope the next book isn’t such a disappointment.
