Book Review: The fifth doll

Divider (2)

Hello Humans

Repeat after me: Dolls are freaky

When i was eleven i asked my elder brothers who were living in Liverpool at that time to buy me a BARBIE DOLL for my eleventh birthday. They graciously said yes, cue to me opening the box and finding a CHUCKY DOLL. i still have nightmares till this day.

I found this book on Kindle unlimited and it come with a free audio book. If you want a story about dolls , cool Russian accent and weird stuff this book is for you. Its entertaining

Holy crap that was good.
I mean this is the reason i am weary of dolls.
So the story is about Matrona who went peeping one day and then landed herself into a shit load of trouble she wasn’t expecting. She unravels secrets of her and the villagers one at a time and things are never going to be the same again.

I picked this book out of sheer curiosity and now that my curiosity has been sated, i am pleased to say i enjoyed the book. In the beginning i was pissed of with everyone in the book and i felt like smacking the hell out of Feodor , her mother and lets just say the villagers( they were the Judgey kind) .but as time went on and the heroine discovered the power of her thinking vagina ( excuse my french but really that’s just a body part) she outsmarted the evil Mystic and won.
I read and listened to the book on kindle unlimited and i have to say the narrator did an excellent job portraying the characters. The story itself was original, i liked the idea of a whole town being controlled by someone who thought he was doing good but then it just ended up being a whole lot of bad.

I figured out the end but if you do read it you will see that logically there really was no other way. Another thing i would have to say thank you to the author is that the romance in the book did not end up taking the main stage (let someone shout an AMEN!!) and because of that i appreciated it. Then again the way the story was set up, it couldn’t have. And because of that i appreciated the story more.

What i didn’t like was that she didn’t stand up to Feodor, i felt what happened at the end was not satisfying enough i kinda wanted more. But i guess maybe that was  because of how she had been raised 
Definitely recommend it. Power through the first pages and i promise you the unraveling would be worth it.


Till next time
