The Wild Inside Reviews
"I learned in school that blood has a memory. It carries information that makes you who you are."
Well, this might be the most unique book I've read in a long time. Unique can either have good or bad connotations and, although I'm leaning towards good, I'm not 100% convinced with this story.
The biggest part of that indecision is that I almost always want my questions answered by the end of a story - and, in this case, that does not happen. There are open-ended trails in this book that I have to c ...more
The Wild Inside by Jamey Bradbury is an unusual paranormal novel about a young woman who lives in Alaskan wilderness.
Seventeen year old Tracy Petrikoff loves the outdoors. She is an avid hunter with an unusual... proclivity for the animals she kills. Her family is heavily involved with dog sledding but following her mother's death, they struggle financially after her father gives up mushing and sells the majority of their sled dogs. Tracy keeps hoping to change his mind about her competing in u ...more
The first half of this book was great to me, which is why it's such a shame that the second half veered off so weirdly that I ended up having to give a less than stellar review.
Tracy Petrikoff lives in rural Alaska with her father and brother after the death of her mother a few years prior. The family raises sled dogs, and in past years Tracy's father Bill has run the Iditarod and done pretty well at it. So, dogs and racing are in 17 year old Tracy's blood...but so is something else.
Ever since ...more
"I have always had a knack for knowing the minds of dogs. Dad says it’s on account of the way I come into the world, born in the open doorway of our kennel, with twenty-two pairs of canine eyes watching and the barks and howls of our dogs the first thing I ever heard."
Tracy is an excellent musher, hunter, and trapper, in the wilds of Alaska, but she is lacking significantly in social skills. She has a secret that her late mother passed down to her that has made her a loner, to her father's vexa ...more
This could have been a five star book. I don’t mind unanswered questions at the end of a story and I certainly don’t mind brutality and sadness, but the ending of this book seemed entirely separate from the rest of the story. While the first 80% of the book contained hints of unexplained magic and subtle mystery, the ending was nothing but outright, seemingly unnecessary, violence.
I very much enjoyed approximately 240/288 pages. Ever felt betrayed by a book? The ending felt lazy next to all the ...more
Ok. The plot of this story was interesting. Definitely not where I expected it to go based on the synopsis on the back cover. Overall I liked the story with it's twists and turns, but...
I realize that the book was meant to be mostly in the mind/voice of a teenage girl, but the grammar drove me up a wall.
Would have. Should have. Not "would of"- sorry it was nails on a chalkboard inside my brain and it was in every other sentence.
Also "I seen" was all over the place in there, too.
I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway.
