Hello everyone and welcome back to the blog! Hw are you all today? I hope good!
Today I’m back with a review and some favourite quotes for you because today is my stop in the Speed of Falling Objects blog tour.
From the author of When Elephants Fly comes an exceptional new novel about falling down, risking everything and embracing what makes us unique. Don’t miss this compulsively readable novel about the most unlikely of heroes.
Danger “Danny” Danielle Warren is no stranger to falling. After losing an eye in a childhood accident, she had to relearn her perception of movement and space. Now Danny keeps her head down, studies hard, and works to fulfill everyone else’s needs. She’s certain that her mom’s bitterness and her TV star father’s absence are her fault. If only she were more-more athletic, charismatic, attractive-life would be perfect.
When her dad calls with an offer to join him to film the next episode of his popular survivalist show, Danny jumps at the chance to prove she’s not the disappointment he left behind. Being on set with the hottest teen movie idol of the moment, Gus Price, should be the cherry on top. But when their small plane crashes in the Amazon, and a terrible secret is revealed, Danny must face the truth about the parent she worships and falling for Gus, and find her own inner strength and worth to light the way home.Add the book to your Goodreads to-read shelf

What I liked
This book was intense! I mean all of these survival adventures in the Amazon and that plane crash that happened before the horror survival trips it was seriously intense. I couldn’t describe it any other way. It was really a great thing and you had the feeling to watch some TV show where people need to show off their surviving skills in the middle of nowhere.
The description in The Speed of Falling Objects were beautifully written and I couldn’t get enough of it. I loved her writing style and hope to read more of it in the near future.
I found the storyline to be intriguing as well and I have to say Fischer did her job very well because I kind of hated our main characters father so so much. I’m sure that you will understand what I mean by this once you’ve read this novel but he is a man you honestly don’t wish to have as a family member and especially not as your father. He was cruel!
What I didn’t like
I found all the characters kind of annoying and couldn’t get to find them nice. Some of the times I wanted to smack them on the head. But I guess that that also made this book great. It might have even been the intention of the author. Who knows? That’s also the only negative thing I might have to say about it.
I don’t have one. Well I had one but it was a tragic story. He only appeared for a few pages before dying. (and no this is no spoiler, this is something logical happening after a plane crashes in the middle of plenty of trees) So he isn’t really worth mentioning at all. But I found him to be the only nice person in the whole book.
Overall, if you like these survival shows on TV then I’m pretty sure that The Speed of falling objects will be your next favourite book!
