Bright Young Things by Scarlett Thomas


I purchased this book when I saw it on my Amazon recommendations, it was also a ridiculously cheap price at the time too!

I was so intrigued by this book as it went along. It is about 6 strangers that have applied for the same job application which has no description. They do not know each other, but they wake up on an desert island a few weeks later.

The story starts to show their individual personalities whilst an incident happens. This was when I became drawn into the book.

Sadly, I was really disappointed with the ending – I felt that it was very rushed or had little thought put into it. I would’ve had high praises for this book, if it wasn’t for the end.

Overall, I would give this book:
2.5 out of 5.

    I started this book early last year but only got to around a quarter of the way through before giving up. Sounds like I’m not missing out on anything exciting! x
