I brought them to the wilderness because we couldn’t cope with our reality.
The plan was to make a new life that didn’t include heartache.
No people. No technology. No interference.
A chance to piece together what was broken.
But the wilderness is untamed and harsh.
Brutal and unforgiving.
It doesn’t give a damn about your feelings.
Tragedy lives there too.
No escaping the truths that won’t let you go.
All you can do is survive where love, no matter how beastly, is the only thing you can truly count on.
Confusing. Wrong. Twisted. Beautiful. Sick.
Love is wild.
I just want to start this review by saying the only reason The Wild by K Webster caught my attention was because it was banned from Amazon and other platforms, and because of all the attention it was getting on social media. Not all the attention was good, so I thought I would get the book and see what the fuss was about.
Now, I loved dark books. I also love taboo books. The Wild has both and I thought it was a great read. It’s not one of those books that has sweet or sappy moments, like at all, so please don’t think that. The Wild will make you think outside the box. It’ll make you get way out of your comfort zone. Not everything is just black and white with this one, and I love books like that. This one has a very complex storyline and in a way I understood Devon and Reese’s pain. Maybe I’m wrong for saying it, but Devon and Reese needed each other. They could not function without one another and I understood why. That’s where the complex storyline comes in. I can’t say much more because I don’t want to give anything away, but I will say I didn’t agree with a lot of what people were saying about this one. I really think people focused on one part in particular instead of just letting the meaning behind the book come into light.
I really enjoyed The Wild. I thought it was one of the most taboo books I’d ever read before. But I love books like this. It’s the ones that’ll pull you in and make you THINK. What may seem wrong might be right. We’re programed to see things a certain way, so with this one, it goes against everything we’ve learned in life. I would recommend The Wild. I’m not sure where you can buy it now, but I was lucky enough to grab it before it was completely banned. And I really hate that too because I feel more people would enjoy this one and now they won’t even know where to get it.
