Force of Nature

51Fs3OgmJBL._SY346_Why wouldn’t you pick up a book whose tagline is: “Five women go on a hike. Only four return.”?! I’m in. And, if the author is Jane Harper, of The Dry, I’m even more in. However, ultimately, Force of Nature didn’t deliver for me. The story was a good one – a corporate retreat into the bush in Australia. The company owners who are along for the retreat are being investigated for fraud by the same officers who come to the investigation after one member of the group goes missing. Every other chapter is either from the investigation point of view or from the women’s time in the wild. But, it was too slow and I found myself finding other things to do rather than read. So, this one fell flat for me in a way that The Dry didn’t. I’m sure this one will get a lot of hype, but I, for one, would skip it.

One thought on “Force of Nature

  1. I was probably the only person who wasn’t thrilled by The Dry. I’m glad this one is getting more realistic reviews. I may try it in the future, but not for awhile. Enjoyed your thoughts!
