After Stacey went out on a date with a handome doctor, she returns unrecognizable to her brother. Little does he know his older sister’s erratic behaviour is just the tip of the iceberg.
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.
