Ashley Newell's newest publication, Freakhouse, may be a dystopian drama, but for some reason the theme isn't what will stick with you once you've reached the last page. That isn't to say that it's weak; on the contrary, the world of the Freakhouse with its human experimentation and prison-like construction will definitely get you thinking about human rights and the things society will do to fix an "economic crisis." Even more so you'll think about just how much people will accept in terms of ou ...more

I'm biased, I wrote it, and if nothing else, I'll always be glad that I accepted a new challenge into my life, that the creation of it moved me, and that the reading of it moves others.

I won this book as a prize from a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for a review. The book centres around a young teen who is unexpectedly orphaned in the not so distant future and so becomes property of the country and is sent to an institution which is an alternative to working people paying taxes. The book centres on his experiences as a freak in the freak house and experiments undertaken. I found the first chapter a good introduction but the following chapter was confusing as it went back in ti ...more

After having finished and thought a little about it, I’m still not completely sure how I feel about this novel. It was well written and the characters were interesting but there’s still something that bugs me that I can’t quite figure out.

I liked that we got to see the protagonist’s life before and after entering the “freak house” but I just wish that the flashbacks were better placed. Newell did do a great job of showing us the intricasies of relationships and emotions but she could have gone d

Freakhouse and Parish are amazing! I was hooked by the first page each time, and devoured both books in one evening. My only complaint is I wish they were longer so we could experience more day-to-day life in the facility, and get to know more about the other characters and other levels of the building.

Let me just say...WOW I really loved this book! I loved how Newell wrote and plotted it, and all the plot twists and cliffhangers! The only thing I didn't like about the book is the cover and how small the writing was on my edition, it took me must longer to read and I felt as if it prevented me from reading it for a while. But other than that, it is one of my favourite books, I can't wait to read more of Ashley Newell's books!!
