BOOK SYNOPSIS

     A dark and brilliant new standalone thriller from a rising star in the crime genre.

He is her husband. She is his captive.

Her husband calls her Jane. That is not her name.

She lives in a small farm cottage, surrounded by vast, open fields. Everywhere she looks, there is space. But she is trapped. No one knows how she got to the UK: no one knows she is there. Visitors rarely come to the farm; if they do, she is never seen.

Her husband records her every movement during the day. If he doesn’t like what he sees, she is punished.

For a long time, escape seemed impossible. But now, something has changed. She has a reason to live and a reason to fight. Now, she is watching him, and waiting …

Will Dean grew up in the East Midlands, living in nine different villages before the age of eighteen. He was a bookish, daydreaming kid who found comfort in stories and nature (and he still does). After studying Law at the LSE, and working in London, he settled in rural Sweden. He built a wooden house in a boggy clearing at the centre of a vast elk forest, and it’s from this base that he compulsively reads and writes. He is the author of Dark Pines.

[REVIEW+GIVEAWAY] True or Poo?: The Definitive Field Guide to Filthy Animal Facts and Falsehoods by N. Caruso and D. Rabaiotti @QuercusBooks

True or Poo?: The Definitive Field Guide to Filthy Animal Facts and Falsehoods by Nick Caruso and Dani Rabaiotti is a short and fun non-fiction book about animals and certain aspects of their lives (e.g. how they live, what they eat etc.). Although it’s short I can say with absolute certainty that it will entertain the life out of you! It has so many interesting facts about many many animals! True or Poo? can be read in just a few hours and will keep you entertained with the amazing drawings of different animals. Here’s an example of a chapter in the book (I also found this funny and interesting so I wanted to share it):

WHITE SAND IS MADE OF FISH POO: TRUE OR POO? TRUE

‘’…Bumphead parrotfish bite off bits of coral with their hard beaks, which continuously grow throughout their lifetimes, before chewing it into dust with specialized pharyngeal teeth, digesting the algae and leaving behind the coral’s powdered, rocky remains. This ground-up coral is then pooed out as a fine sand, before being washed ashore to form the stunning beaches for which the Maldives are famous. Each parrotfish can produce 90 kg of sand each year, and as a result 85% of sand in the region has passed through a parrotfish at some point. So if you are ever lucky enough to visit the Maldives, you can relax on the beach knowing it all would not have been possible without one special parrotfishes’ sandy stools.’’ *

*this is a part of the chapter in the book.

Before you begin the book you will be greeted with an introduction by the authors and after the introduction you will have a brief summary of what to expect in the first segment of the book. The book has six segments: 1. Courtship, Mating and Parenting, 2. Animal Eating Habits, 3. Digestion and Excretion and more. Before you venture into the world of disgusting facts you will have a brief summary before each segment as well as what to expect in it (I realise I repeated myself in this sentence). I really enjoyed spending a few hours getting lost in this book and learning new facts and being disgusted by them – I still am by the one with mites! I also learned that some animals can change genders (from male to female and vice versa)! How cool is that! That there’s a friendship between a frog and a spider and many more!

If you’re a person who loves discovering and learning new things you will love this book! Also if you get easily disgusted then read a chapter a day!

I would like to thank the publisher Quercus Books UK for providing me with a digital copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions written here are my own and weren’t influenced by anything.
