What can I say..."I just wasn't wild about Wild."...

WILD - Adrienne Wilder

So me and my Buddy Read Besties...Christelle, Josy & Simone decided that we needed to read this one together because it's the perfect book for a buddy read and 'EVERYONE' is loving this one...well...everyone except me and Simone and Josy (I think)...but we liked it really we did.

 

I have to admit I'm feeling a bit lazy today and Simone really covered a lot of reasons that I happen to agree with so in the most efficient lazy reviewer style ever here's the link to Simone's review...

Simone's 'WILD' Review definitely worth reading and can I just say "cutest wolf pup evah!"  Also sorry Simone but in my part of the world that bet would be what we call a sucker bet.

I think about the only other thing that didn't work for me was part of the ending. There were things at the end that were just to quickly and easily wrapped up all nice, neat and tidy with a bow...sorry, I like a good HEA but this one just didn't work for me. 

 

And in fairness to all those who haven't read this book and to the lovely Christelle who ended up being the odd man out on this one because she loved this book and made some very valid points in her review for why this story worked so well for her here's the link to her wonderful review so that you can see both sides of this coin...

Christelle's WILD Review

 

And that's not to say that there weren't things I liked in this story because there were...

like my friend Simone I was enchanted with the setting the wild's of Alaska for all it's savagery it is also a bold and beautiful country and it takes an incredibly bold and strong person to be able to live there. In short the author chose a setting that is both scary and breathtakingly beautiful.

 

Daisy...Daisy  and August are the perfect example of what can happen when man and nature work together...

and then there's the she bitch or the permanently pissed off momma bear as I can to think of her...

 Unfortunately the addition of Alaska and all of it's natural beauty was not enough to take this book over the top for me but it certainly gave this story a beautiful setting to play out against and the addition of my Buddy Read Besties as always provided me with the best of company to take this adventure with.
