A Postcard from Outlier Island 🏝️📨 📪
Review of the Amazon Original Story ebook (July 23, 2023) released simultaneously with the Brilliance Audio audiobook.

Not my style at all. The only reason this short story is a novella length of 124 pages is because it is written in text messages and online comments spread generously throughout the pages. It is probably 40 pages of "real" content. A college student on various social media is victimized by a gang of incels & misogynists. It turns into a troll fest with hate messages. The subject matter is repulsive enough, the format just become wearisome to read at length.

Alyssa Cole is a romance, contemporary and historial fiction writer who has published over 20 novels, the most popular of which is When No One Is Watching (2020).

Trivia and Links
Just a Girl is the 6th of 6 short stories making up the psychological suspense series Obsession, released simultaneously on July 23, 2023 as eBooks by Amazon Originals and as audiobooks by Brilliance Audio.

Six masters of psychological suspense craft tales about people crossing moral lines in pursuit of their deepest desires. In these short stories, even the most mild-mannered characters can spin out of control when passion is at play. Hold on tight—there’s no turning back.”

I enjoyed this book! It kept me on my toes, wanting to know what the HECK was going on in that neighborhood.

I just could not get into this try as I did and now give up marking it DNF at 66%.

The character has dissociative identify disorder and is confused about everything that is happening. So was I.

The setting was interesting - a castle on a mostly deserted island gave all the Gothic feels.

I was listening to the audiobook as I followed along in the e-book ARC provided by the ppublisher and the narrator was great and voiced the MANY characters quite well.

The plot, as it were, was meant to be a mystery but at this point there was yet to be the murder.

Moving on.

This book is absolutely wild. It follows a Kenetria Nash who has dissociative identity disorder. Ken "wakes up" on the dock waiting to be taken to her new caretaker job of an old castle on an island. One of her alters applied for the job, but she can't talk to the one who did it because she's gone quiet (for now? forever? That's part of the tension). There are multiple perspectives in the book, all of them are Kenetria's alters. The author does a great job developing each of these distinct personalities and the role they play in the group.

There is suspense both in the external and internal world. I thought the internal suspense (which felt as concrete as the external) was very interesting and original. The external plot was incredibly trope driven and felt too extreme, which was very disappointing, but it didn't stop the book from being a wild page-turner.

Most readers are either going to love or hate this book primarily because of the voice of the primary narrator. Ken is self-destructive, crude, and she hates herself. She's definitely not a likeable character, but she is interesting and well-written, that just might not be a enough for some readers. The book is also very engaged with a Covid-world and the politics that go along with it. That will also be hit-or-miss with some readers. Again, I liked it, but it won't work for everyone.

I recommend this book for people looking for a suspenseful page-turner with complex characters, and wild twists and turns.
