The Yellow Wood - Melanie Tem

This turned out to be a completely different novel than I expected. I somehow thought it would be a suspense novel, probably the wood thingy that gave me that impression. However, I never expected it to be a family saga.


Alexandra goes back to her father Alexander after 30-something years because he's dying and her siblings would like her to come. Then she finds out he's been experimenting on them since they were young children.


Although it was a fast and not unentertaining read, it did fell short for me. It was never really engaging, nor was I really curious to find out more about the family. I didn't like any of the family members. I was a little disappointed.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
