Burial Rites by Hannah Kent

Even though it’s well researched, there were moments of Burial Rites where I didn’t care because of the dull writing. It felt more telling than showing. However, the characters were interesting and I couldn’t stop reading to discover what happens as one reveal after another adds up to something heart-wrenching.


Suspenseful and an eye-opener to Icelandic ways, Burial Rites would keep you on edge and cry on the cold ground.

Warning: there are no happy endings.
