(PDF) The Accident Season
Read the full review on 100% Rock Magazine There are no ghosts only the dust in the light our breath and the wind in the uiet and the feeling that something or a lot of somethings are watching us So maybe there are ghosts after all Deliciously creepy and wonderfully curious The Accident Season is definitely the erfect autumnal read The author did an excellent job of making the story odd enough to give the reader chills but also making it flawed enough to have them second guess themselves from the very first ageSeventeen year old Cara and her family are cursed Near the end of October the accident season begins to work and accidents happen Accidents happen Our bones shatter our skin splits our hearts break We burn we drown we stay alive Sometimes eople die The Accident Season took than one of Cara s family members away and the family grows accident rone as a conseuence Cara s sister is hit by a car Cara almost drowns their stepbrother Sam breaks bones than is deemed normal and every year they try their hardest to survive Cara s mother goes overboard every year adding the house from top to bottom removing the cooker and sharp utensils or anything sharp really and making sure each kid wears at least three rotective layers before leaving the house They must avoid everything that could cause them harm and if there s no way around it for example crossing the road they must at all cost do it togetherBut this year is different Cara after going through old family hoto albums finds that one erson is always resent in the 4000 Meilen durch die USA: Meine Reise zu den großen Fragen des Lebens pictures A young girl called Elsie whom Cara has known since childhood and Cara is convinced that if she confronts Elsie she will find the answers to the accident seasonExcept Elsie is missing No one seems to remember her or even recall what she looked like This year s accident season is about to be the messiest one yetWhat made The Accident Season creepy was firstly the writing style Fowley Doyle has a way with words that makes you feel like you re floating like everything is in fact ghostly and otherworldly There s nothing simplistic about her style especially when it comes to describing abandoned houses It s entrancing and addicting and hard not to get sucked into this IrelandSecondly the characters are what made the story so wonderfullyoignant and curious Cara Alice and Sam are a erfect trio they would do anything for each other and love to indulge each other s wild fantasies Each characters although always narrated by Cara has their own ersonality something that distinguishes them from each other and each characters has secrets they would do anything to keep hiddenI was swept up by the author s writing her descriptions of Ireland and every scene left me with a dry mouth and a racing heart I absolutely adored the romance how taboo it seemed in both cases and how it didn t eclipse Cara s race in finding out the truth about her family Elsie and the Gläsern past accident seasons And no matter the romance the book focused a lot on relationships in general and it was very We Were Liars and The Perks of Being a Wallflower in this regard It was very different very wonderful just deliciously amazingThe best way to describe this book would be slightly ghostly incredibly creepy and with a huge dose of mind blowinglot twists ready to give unsuspecting readers headaches Good headaches The Accident Season is the sort of book you can t and won t stop thinking about for a long long time Accidents happen Our bones shatter our skin splits our hearts break We burn we drown we stay aliveThe Accident Season is an imaginative and whimsical Detention of Doom paranormal book that ll keep you up at night Just a little tip you might want to keep a teddy bear close while reading this one tooThe main thing that turned this into a successfully haunting read was the writing style Doyle s writing will make you feel like you re floating and maybe even kind of unsteady which iserfect to get a good feel of the story s spooky atmosphere Although for some weirdos like me it might be a bit off Fromentin putting Personally it made it a bit tougher for me to feel like I said I was sort of floating throughout the whole bookAnd now let s talk about the characters While I did love the idea of them I didn t really love them Let me elaborate here See I love how Doyle seemed to go against some character stereotypes but I just couldn t get a good grasp of them Maybe it was because of the floaty feeling the book gave me Maybe it s because I felt like some of them were too all over thelace like everyone kissed everyone without telling each other or because I wasn t given enough over the Punishing My Slutty Little Sister place like everyone kissed everyone without telling each other or because I wasn t given enough to really figure them outThis book also had romance in it which may or may not be a good thing I mean I didn t love any of the relationships inarticular but I didn t mind them being there They didn t necessarily add anything to the story but they didn t take the spotlight off the mystery either Okay maybe I did sort of like the main ship but the side ship I deem this a thing now was retty meaningless and had no chemistryIf there s one thing I appreciated most about this book thought it s that it was it actually made sense If I m being really honest here a lot of mystery and thriller books have these twists that come out of nowhere The twist in The Accident Season will make you nod your head

At First And It Took A While first and it took a while get used to it That coupled with the slightly boring nature of the first half of the book made it not amazing for me The end of the book made up for a lot of the first half though Though I do think the lot was interesting it felt the Who Is Gloria Steinem? plot twists were something I had read before so I was never fully surprised It also felt like this book was trying to be a few different books at once so nothing felt TOTALLY coherentOverall I enjoyed it andretty much sped through it I definitely don t regret reading it at all but I definitely had some issues If the basic remise sounds interesting to you ick it up You may enjoy it than I did PSA There are a lot of triggering things in this book but I feel like listing them would be considered a spoiler so if you would like to know the triggering things message me and I ll tell you Wow what an entrancing and surprising read This book is for a very specific type of reader A reader who likes lots of weird and strange writing Possibly those drawn to the books of Nova Ren Suma And those enjoy not knowing what the hell is going on or what is even actually happening until the last few chapters of the book I am not that type of readerThe Accident Season is a little like We Were Liars and Charm Strange but far boring I was warned about the weird writing style and it didn t bother me so much but it could not make up for the complete lack of lot ie random weirdness for 90% of the bookIt will be obvious to most readers that a twistreveal is coming It must be right Because what else could account for all this build and no action So when it happened I thought Oh there it is and really wasn t surprised It s the kind of book where it s a little too obvious that the author is trying to be clever so I was waiting for the cleverness to announce itself Weird magical realism books covering up a realistic issue aren t that different anyThe story is about a girl called Cara and her family In October her family become inexplicably accident rone They hide sharp objects stay inside and try to avoid catastrophe in any way ossible The book opens with Cara noticing that a girl called Elsie is in all her ictures maybe just a few strands of hair or a shadow in the background but she is in every single one Weird huhBut the next 250 Corazones solitarios pages get weirder and weirder offering no explanation until the very end of the book This might sound compelling but honestly it wasn t It was just strange and boring We start to hear about witches and mermaids and none of it makes a damn bit of sense for a long timeAlso ick Every time I want to kiss you I tell myself you re my little sister and I shouldn t want that because it s fucked up and wrongTh.
