They Called Me WyattThey Called Me Wyatt by Natasha Tynes

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Dying wasn’t the worst part. It was what came after dying” – After those first words, I jumped head first into the novel.

Birthday is the anniversary of the day on which a person was born. For young Jordanian Siwar Salaihav it is also an anniversary of her death. After Siwar’s life was cut short, her consciousness was reborn in an American boy named Wyatt, who was born on the evening of her death.

As the years went by, young Wyatt struggled with two personalities that are overtaking his body. And on the night of his twenty-fifth birthday, Siwar made the final persistent move that forced Wyatt to stop ignoring the signs and memories that she has been sending to his brain thru the years. Finally, Wyatt teams up with Siwar, digs into her past, and finds the new details that force the detectives to reopen Siwar’s case, and brings the murderer to justice.

I wanted to like the book. The first paragraph was phenomenal, it had a lot of potentials, however, the rest of the novel, all the way thru the end was just simply gibberish. In my opinion, the characters were not fully developed. The dialogs were just awful… awful! The plot unfolded slow. Many details mention in the novel, that also took a large portion of the story were simply useless at the end and played no role in the book’s final conclusion.

Thank you NetGalley, Rare Bird Books Publisher and Natasha Tynes for an advanced copy of the novel.

  2. I really dig the premise of this novel, but if the story itself is poorly executed a good idea can’t save it. I’ve heard some bad things about this author’s behavior in the past but nothing that would drive me away from reading her writing. I’m still interested in reading this even though you articulated its faults very well, I hope I enjoy it more than you did. Great review! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • The idea of the novel is great, therefore it was the reason I wanted to read the story. I would love to hear your thought once you’ll read the book. I also have heard about an unfortunately incident an author had in the train and how badly it has affected her. However, I completely agree with you regarding reading an author’s work regardless of the bad press that it shared about them. Happy reading! ๐Ÿ™‚
