The story of The Adoption is a dark and sinister one which should not be spoiled. Like Gone Girl, or Before I go to Sleep, it is a book that is best read without knowing nothing about. However, I will divulge a little bit what this brilliant book is about! The Adoption follows a childless couple, an adoption specialist and an adopted child called Samantha. At first glance, The Adoption may appear to be the perfect read, just like the perfectness you feel when you first read about the couple’s adoption of the sweet five-year-old girl. However this novel is not the perfect family-friendly book, it is, in fact, a dark and sinister novel with paranormal twists and turns that will keep its readers entertained from beginning to end! The reader gets to follow the couple and their newly adopted daughter, but soon the couple start to worry when some unnerving happenings occur and this book lovers is the premise of this sensational book!
The story of The Adoption is a dark and suspenseful one that will haunt your dreams thanks to the disturbing moments the reader experiences. These kind of thrillers, in my opinion, are the best and I love when a book is haunting! These are how thrillers are supposed to me, and it was clear to me early on that Meritt knows just how to write a crime novel. He understands that this genre is meant to haunt and terrify the reader as well as keep them entertained. The fact that he knows what the reader wants shows me that he is a true literary talent and that is why this exceptional novel needs to be read by everyone!
Greg Meritt is a well-accomplished, talented writer who compelled me from beginning to end with his suspenseful novel. His story is unpredictable and will keep the reader guessing from beginning to end. In no way is this book ever predictable and this is thanks to the fact that Meritt manages to include a host of twists and turns to keep his readers engrossed and hooked. Merrit’s character development, in particular, was superb and he wrote his characters with profoundness and intensity. The power of his words meant that his characters were believable and even likable when you are expected to like the character! His creation of Samantha, in particular, was fantastic, Meritt has managed to write an authentic character, and for that, I am in awe of him!
