Goodreads Review of "A Cure for Madness" by Jodi McIsaac

A Cure for MadnessA Cure for Madness by Jodi McIsaac
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received A Cure for Madness by Jodi McIsaac from NetGalley. In exchange for the Kindle e-book, here is my honest review:

The minute I started to read, stopping was like trying to fight the power of a straight-line wind. I was powerless to resist.

At first, I called it a Pre-Dystopian-ish-Possible-Y/A book. The elements sit nearby in a petri dish of possibility. A unique work emerges.

A Cure for Madness, addresses topics that affect us today. The use of fiction, imagination, make the truth easier to take.

The writing is good, and whew, talk about suspense.

"A Cure..." seems like a few of my favorite authors got together and had a writing party. They wanted to see who could raise the reader's pulse rate the highest.

The characters are well developed. My feelings about each one evolved throughout the novel.

Content: I would recommend this to a Mature Y/A reader and above.
Sex: There is one sex scene that is a little graphic, and references to rape. 18+
Language: There is great cussing, plenty of f-bombs.
Violence: Yes. - But it is done in the framework of a story that is believable.

I look forward to reading more work by Jodi McIsaac
