My Review of
Dear Jack (Lets Play A Game) by Tayler Macneill
Dear Jack is a chilling and fascinating read. I found that this book has so many different threads that I couldn’t guess who was playing who until the end. I liked Jack and Kate’s connection throughout the book as it added to the shock and chill of the end of the story for me.
The story itself follows Jack as he opens a mysterious note that leads him into someone else’s game. As murders start to happen, his mental state changes. Has the note writer turned Jack into a killer too? Or is his to be the next body to be found? You’ll have to read his book to find out.
I liked how Kate had her secrets and right through the book came off the innocent party fearing as much as Jack did. However, in some places I felt for her as she had a traumatic past and in some ways, this led her to becoming more controlling and rather darker towards the end.
I though Jack was a very well written character with all the making of a killer. But there is more to Jack than I thought and my perceptions about him changed with each chapter right up until the end.
The author does a great job at writing her characters in such a way that you can’t guess who have good intentions or who does not. And she gets in their minds very well so the readers can also see the strange and wonderful thoughts and emotions of each character.
If you love books with chilling characters and a story that will keep you guessing until the very end, then give this book a try.
