Foe by Iain Reid // 5-Star Book Review

A review of one of my favourite books of the year, FOE by Iain Reid. This is a book about love, marriage, loss, isolation, and commitment masquerading as a simple science fiction novel. This is sci-fi at its best: an apparent bit of escapism that’s actually looking to confront things that people would rather not confront. Do yourself a favour and pick it up. Five stars, all day.

Loved this book too. Iain Reid is a definite favorite of mine. His first book is equally atmospheric, in my opinion. Subscribed!

You had me at Trent Reznor. Yeah, I know that was at the end of the video, it took me that long. As you know, I really strongly disliked his previous novel, I’m Thinking of Ending Things. It was also marketed as a psychological Thriller, but it just didn’t work for me, I admired some of the writing, but the plot was just such a mess. If you search for it on my blog, you’ll find a very short review as well as a selfie of my annoyed face right after I finished the book, I had very strong feelings at that time, exacerbated by the fact that I was stranded in an airport with my children.

So, I will read this, next year after my various reading challenges for 2018 are complete. The description for this one does intrigue me, it seems to be “about” something, as opposed to just trying to create a mood or a feeling, which was part of my problem the last book. It was also really over overhyped, which this one doesn’t seem to be.
