Review of Krysten Ritter’s debut novel ‘Bonfire’
I was so very lucky to get to read Krysten Ritter’s debut novel Bonfire early before it is released this fall and I cannot wait for people to read it! You probably know her from shows like Breaking Bad and Marvel’s Jessica Jones but this is her first dive into writing. If you like mystery and suspense you’re going to love it. Here is my review:
Welcome to Barrens, population 5,027 .
This story is about Abby Williams who is from the small town of Barrens, Indiana. She grew up there and has good and bad memories from her childhood. She didn’t have many friends and was bullied. After high school she moved to Chicago and has been there ever since and is now working as a lawyer for the Center for Environmental Advocacy Work. She returns to her hometown to investigate if chemicals have been dumped into the towns reservoir by a local company. Upon arriving, she runs into many people from her past who may or may not be happy to see her. She ends up staying for a while so she can investigate. She is haunted by someone from her past and the bad memories that come along with it, and while trying to solve the case, even develops relationships with people she never thought she’d see again. Sometimes when you’re too close to the people involved in an investigation things can get pretty dark and twisted and this definitely went there.
I found myself dying to get to the end of this book. The suspense kept me hooked the entire time. I am from a small town in Ohio and Ritter’s descriptions of the small town and the people in it reminded me so much of the people in my hometown. That feeling of wanting to leave but also knowing that it will always be home. Abby Williams is a badass and I would want her working the investigation if anything ever happened to me! This was an awesome debut novel from Ritter and I look forward to reading more from her.
Be sure to check out Bonfire when it is released on November 7th. It is available for pre-order now!
