The Dolls by James Patterson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Dolls by Kecia Bal and James Patterson is a fast-paced, action-packed story that is sure to creep you out with how realistic it feels.
The story follows the main character Lana as she uncovers some unsettling facts about a company while conducting investigative reporting. Dark secrets are revealed, and her life will never be the same after this story.
This story is eerie because it doesn't feel completely out of the realm of possibility. Furthermore, the themes of distrust and secrets permeate this story, making the reader feel uneasy. I liked the Westworld/Black Mirror feel. The short, fast-paced format of this story also make it great for an evening read.
Kecia Bal and James Patterson's styles support the suspense and eerie quality. This story really made me think about where technology is heading and how humanity can be affected. Most of all, it made me realize that some secrets need to come to light.
