Fellside is a maximum security prison on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors. It's not the kind of place you'd want to end up. But it's where Jess Moulson could be spending the rest of her life.
It's a place where even the walls whisper.
And one voice belongs to a little boy with a message for Jess.
Will she listen?

I mean it’s alright but not The Girl with all the Gifts alright. That one was a 5 star, btw.
I found Fellside’s story to be interesting, but it went too boringly deep into the paranormal. Those scenes when Jess left her body to go to The Other Place? Too many, too long and too weird.
That being said, the rest of it is quite gripping.
Jess finds herself in a remote prison in the Yorkshire moors called Fellside. She is there because she was charged with the murder of a small boy called Alex who was her neighbour. Apparently, she set fire to her apartment and ended up accidentally killing Alex.
With no will to live and burnt to a crisp, Jess starts to hear someone trying to communicate with her; but who? It almost sounds like a small child…
Go there if you like paranormal stuff. The ending is good. ( )

Brilliant, right from the opening page. ( )

I enjoyed this book, but it didn't cohere into a whole for me. Jess, the main character, didn't have much personality, I didn't get a good read on her. The various parts were not integrated with one another well. There's the main character's ability to walk dreams, the drug mule prison drama, and the mystery of who committed the murder Jess went to prison for, and I think they could have been woven together better.

My pre-read notes say "Apparently, it's all a surprise, but the author of the Girl with All the Gifts wrote a book NPR describes as '[a] supernatural fantasy [that] reads like a marriage between Stephen King and Charles De Lint, with a touch of Orange Is The New Black...'" And, yeah, that's basically it, with a few quibbles: I would describe this as Orange Is The New Black, with a touch of De Lint and Stephen King, rather than the other way around; and I think this book is really hurting itself with the "it's all a surprise" shtick.

Let's start with the un-spoiler-y parts: this is a good book. This is an important book. Those who turn their noses up at speculative fiction don't understand that at its finest it takes a simple question of "what-if" and uses that to deeply explore humanity, our existence and modern living in ways that "literary fiction" cannot. And that's what Carey did with this book: he took the biggest issues of the '10's -- for-profit prisons, the opiate crisis, human trafficking -- and added a tiny "what-if" to cast a new and thought-provoking light on them. And, I guess this is where I'll spoiler tag, although I encourage you to keep reading, because as previously mentioned, I think trying to guess the "mystery" impedes the reading of Fellside.

The what-if is this: what if the protagonist can see a ghost. That's it, not that there are ghosts, or lots of people can see ghosts. One little trait of one main character that really shifts the entire narrative. Through the ghost, who Jess originally thinks is her victim, but who turns out to be Nasreen, a former inmate, Carey gets the chance to say a lot about what it means to be a criminal and what it means to be a hero. One of the core themes of the book is exploring the myth of a "lost-cause" and how by fighting for this ghost, Jess becomes a champion and, in turn, inspires other characters who have given up on themselves. Carey also has a lot to say here about how our current incarceration system inevitably causes recidivism by presenting impossible dilemmas of continued criminality versus victimhood.

What I liked the least about Fellside was the ridiculous commitment to mystery. It was abundantly clear to me from the beginning that the ghost wasn't Alex, but was Nasreen and to have the narration pretending otherwise was distracting. In addition, I felt like letting the reader in on that secret would help give insight into Jess' state of mind and the lies that we tell ourselves to try to heal ourselves.


Overall, I could easily see this book ending up in a high school English class curriculum, exploring the interplay of speculative fiction and contemporary events. (I kind of want to write that five paragraph essay now.) ( )

Revenind după ce mi-a trecut enervarea inițială și i-am făcut o recenzie mai pe larg, îmi dau seama că 99% din lectură am savurat-o de 5/5. Așa că, în ciuda finalului de 1/5 și a lipsei de calități literare propriu-zise, faptul că mi-a oferit loisir de 5/5 va conduce la acordarea acestei note.
