For the Love of Literature

As a bibliophile, my passion for books coalesces with a love of writing, and writing book reviews allows me to share literature with the world.

Those We Fear by Victoria Griffith

“Those We Fear” is quite a page-turner. It is more or less a young adult rendition of “The Turn of the Screw”, featuring an 18-year-old American girl named Maria who comes to Scotland to serve as an au pair following a tragedy that landed her in the Witness Protection Program. Increasingly bizarre and dangerous things happen at the Harley estate, and the line between reality and the supernatural and sanity and madness blurs. With continuous action and psychological tension, the story is difficult to put down, if a bit predictable.
