The Water Cure: #bookreview

41619bormbl

 

The Water Cure is one of the most interesting books that I’ve read in awhile. It’s a bit like a combination of Lord of the Flies and The Virgin Suicides with a hint of King Lear.

Three sisters, Grace, Lia and Sky, are raised on an isolated island by their parents, King and Mother. They are taught that the outside world is a dangerous place for females because men are a threat.

They are taught to do bizarre rituals – like wearing weighted clothes in the water and drinking sea water. I guess it’s to help them survive if they ever leave the island. They used to get female visitors who were escaping the outside world. The women had to do the survival rituals. It was supposed to make them all stronger.

Their father disappears almost without a trace. Three men arrive on the island. Soon after their mother disappears.

After the men appear, there is a lot of tension between the sisters. Lia falls in love with one of the men. Grace and Sky believe that the men are dangerous and should not be trusted.

If I say anything else, I’ll give away the ending. It’s a really great novel and you should read it. I’d give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

  • I received an ebook from NetGalley in exchange for doing a review. All opinions are mine. Obviously.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
