Oblivion – Review 



I know they say to not judge a book by it’s cover…but I’m incredibly guilty of doing so sometimes.


When I initially saw Oblivion by Sasha Dawn, I knew that it would be a somewhat dark book, and was pleased to see it would a psychological thriller.


I was excited to read the book because I’m a sucker for psychological thrillers, however, I feel that in some ways the book fell short on some of my expectations.




I thought that the book started off well, but then in some areas of the story it was very slow. In all honesty, I got a little bored in some parts. It was almost as though some of the parts of the story were unnecessary and dragged out. But, there were also parts in the story that seemed to get a bit confusing, fairly quickly.




One year ago, Callie was found shivering in an abandoned apartment, the walls covered in her red-inked scrawls. She remembers nothing of that night. Nothing of the thirty-six hours before. All she knows is that her father, the reverend at the Church of the Holy Promise, hasn’t been seen since. Neither has Hannah Rynes, a young girl from the parish.

Since that night, Callie’s been plagued by graphomania–a compulsion to write. The words that pound in her head and flow through her red felt-tipped pen onto the pages of her notebooks, onto her jeans, onto her limbs, make no sense, yet they may be the key to unlocking her memory.

The anniversary of Hannah’s disappearance is approaching. The words are coming faster and faster. Then Callie meets a guy at school who might be able to help her sort through the jumbled nonsense and piece the puzzle together, unlocking her past.

But some secrets are better left buried. . . .

Oblivion is a taut psychological thriller, full of romance, mystery, and tantalizing twists.




Overall, though, I would give Oblivion by Sasha Dawn seven out of ten stars.


Although there were multiple things that I didn’t like, it wasn’t a bad book.
