Another phenomenal book by E.J. Noyes.
This book was amazing and so incredibly interesting. Celeste has taken part in a four-year study/ experiment of the human psyche. All she has to do is live alone in the middle of nowhere for a maximum of four years, she can’t have any contact with the outside world and the payout is massive and would set her up for the rest of her life. When an unknown hiker shows up three years into the experiment and she’s wounded, Celeste wants to help but could this ruin everything she has stayed alone for the past three years…
How does E.J. Noyes do it? Coming up with these intense and elaborate stories that draw you in so much that you can’t put the book down until it’s finished. I became a little obsessed with this book. This isn’t a novel you can rush, the pace is definitely slower than other books by the author but I think it’s perfect for these characters and their story and also for the reader to really understand the situation.
The story is told solely from Celeste’s POV and what an interesting point of view she has. Understanding how alone she is was quite eye opening. The way she adapted her life to survive the loneliness was amazing. When Olivia (the wounded hiker) is added to the story and gives the plot it’s romantic element I was so excited and it did not disappoint.
I think that’s where I am going to stop this review because honestly, I am scared to give any spoilers. But I will say this… BUY THIS BOOK! Alone is now in the running for the Les Rêveur book of 2019. It’s just that fantastic.
