The Laws of the Skies | Grgoire Courtois

Pickpick

"All of these stories, all of these tales, repeat ad nauseam that a child has no business alone in the middle of the woods, that no good can come of heading off-road. And yet here we are."

Harrowing & grotesque, although there's a certain poetry to it. Abandon all hope if you choose to read this book. The situations are so extreme & hopeless that it's almost cathartic to read them & come out whole. I suppose that's horror in general, right?

readordierachel It was probably a mistake to read this before I go camping with small children this weekend... 2mo
DGRachel Oh yeah! I‘m never walking into the woods again and I certainly wouldn‘t go camping with small children. Good luck! 😱😱🤣 2mo
readordierachel @DGRachel Haha! Thanks, I'll need it. 😱🙃 2mo

batsy Oh, you're a brave one! 😭😭😂 Great review, though. Perhaps there is something cathartic about reading stuff like this. 2mo
readordierachel @batsy Brave or dumb 😆 I kept trying to figure out what kept me reading. Like, it was so completely awful but I was enthralled and thought parts were kind of humorous. I settled on catharsis 🤷🏽‍♀️ 2mo
Tanisha_A Love the review, and the way it contrasts the background of the picture - blue, hopeful, some clouds! 2mo
readordierachel @Tanisha_A Yes, it doesn't quite fit with the tone of the book does it? 😆 2mo
rohit-sawant Really intrigued by all the reviews for this 😱 2mo
readordierachel @rohit-sawant It's not for the faint of heart for sure! But worth reading if you can stomach it. 2mo
DivineDiana I‘ll pass! 🤔 2mo
readordierachel @DivineDiana i don't blame you. It's definitely not for everyone. Very dark. 2mo
Reggie The part about the boar just made me feel like I was being spit roasted over flame. 3w
readordierachel @Reggie It definitely made an impression. I was reading that whole part through spread fingers. #thingsyoucantunread 3w
