When I Am Through with You by Stephanie Kuehn

When I Am Through with You

“This isn’t meant to be a confession. Not in any spiritual sense of the word. Yes, I’m in jail at the moment. I imagine I’ll be here for a long time, considering. But I’m not writing this down for absolution and I’m not seeking forgiveness, not even from myself. Because I’m not sorry for what I did to Rose. I’m just not. Not for any of it.”Ben Gibson is many things, but he...

    This book was

    to keep reading. Like the author's other books, it will be hard to do a proper review, simply because I want to give 

    away. You need to read this for yourself, to experience the plot points as they come.

    One of the themes of this book (and a theme I am an absolute fan of in general) is survival. I loved the way that the author mixed the survival aspects of the mountain with the more mystery/thriller elements. It made for a quite well rounded story, and the action was fabulous. In addition, I really cared about the characters in this one. I found them complex and well fleshed out, and it made the stakes even higher as a reader.

    And, the elements I'd come to expect from a Stephanie Kuehn novel were all present: Incredibly captivating writing, and a big dose of eeriness. The author doesn't shy away from the strange, or from the horrifying, but that is what makes this book so flat out engrossing.

    With a fresh twist on a survival story (or perhaps, a survivalist twist on a thriller), this book will undoubtedly have you turning the pages wanting more.

    I liked this book a lot. The story grabbed me right away and I was completely hooked. This is the first time that I have read anything by Stephanie Kuehn but I quickly found that she is a fabulous storyteller.

    I liked this book a lot. The story grabbed me right away and I was completely hooked. This is the first time that I have read anything by Stephanie Kuehn but I quickly found that she is a fabulous storyteller. I ended up reading this book over two nights and really never wanted to put it down because I had to know what happened. I had a lot of fun reading this book.

    This story is told by Ben. I really liked the way the story unfolded through Ben's recollection after the event. From the book's summary, we know that Ben does something to Rose but as I read the story I just couldn't figure it out. Ben is really a likeable guy. He's not perfect and doesn't always know the answers but I just couldn't see him causing harm to anyone. So I had to keep reading to find out what really happened.

    The book takes Ben, his teacher, and a few more high school students on an overnight hiking trip. I was a little surprised by how much this group of kids got away with on the trip. Ben is the teacher's assistant for the trip so he has a bit of responsibility but he doesn't hesitate to have a little fun himself. There is a bit of high school drama which I really didn't mind in this story. It felt realistic and really helped show who each of the characters really were.

    There are a few surprising twists in the story and a whole lot of excitement before everything is over. I really had no idea what was going to happen to everyone as the story moved along. I ended up feeling for these kids as they tried to figure out how to handle the situation they found themselves in.

    I would recommend this book to others. It was a really exciting story that was really hard to put down. I definitely plan to read more of Stephanie Kuehn's work in the future.

    This book really surprised me. When I first downloaded this book from First to Read, it kept freezing my tablet up and just giving me an all around rough time. I decided to see if it was behaving any better last night and while the file was still a bit temperamental, I was willing to fight my way through the book because the story completely grabbed me. I loved Ben's voice in this book and was never really sure what would happen next.

    On a school camping trip in the mountains, Ben, Rose, her twin Tomas, and a handful of other misfit students run into trouble. It appears that each student has his or her own agenda. People are lost, people are killed, and things look really bad for Ben.

    This story is told by Ben. In his own way.

    This story seemed to rise and fall. This is a YA novel and that is easy to detect. However it had some well developed characters that helped to move the story along. Once you give yourself over to Ben, you want to continue to read.

    Thanks to First to Read and Penguin Books for giving me this ARC in exchange for a truthful review.
