Review: Marrow by Tarryn Fisher

5 out of 5 stars

Woah! What did I just read?! I thought Tarryn Fisher only wrote about messed up, morally flawed characters and their annoying problems. But this, this is the last thing I expected from her.

Here’s a girl who grew up with one shitty parent because the other one does not even want to acknowledge her existence, in a shitty house, in a shitty neighborhood and still managed to grow up a very decent person, still messed up but in a very useful way. I mean, she does attempt murder people and is even often successful but it’s all for a good cause.

And yet it was written very lyrically. It’s really unfathomable how the author made it work. It is poetic, emotional, gripping, and thought provoking. I could hug her for bringing to attention the abuse and suffering children endure from their own parents. Her Afterword is a gem too, this entire novel is and now¬†Tarryn Fisher is definitely another author/hero for me! Also, don’t you just love that gorgeous cover?!

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
