SICK Part III by Christa Wojciechowski

Sick Part III (Sick #3)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Usually, when I read a series, I like to leave some space between books. But with this trilogy, I just HAD to read them one after the other. These stories were just too twisted, too messed-up, and I wanted to know how it was going to end.

John and Susan have a toxic marriage full of sickness, hospitals and lies. But now that the secrets are out in the open, Susan realises she's played her own pathetic role in John's sick game. She might know the truth now, but it won't matter when others make up their own minds...

Yikes! OMFG. 🤢

This book was as addictive as the previous two, but it was also longer. The others were novellas, but this was a novel featuring the POVs of both Susan and John.

I really liked how unpredictable it turned out to be. So much of what happened was unexpected, and it kept me guessing until that very wicked ending. I honestly thought everything would turn out differently, but of course there was no other way for this couple to end up.

To call this trilogy disturbing is an understatement. It pushes the boundaries on so many levels. Made me angry so many times because I did NOT like John in any book. He really has no redeeming qualities. None at all. Just when you think he might do the right thing, he proves how childish, arrogant and selfish he is. He's despicable.

I quite liked Susan because although she's a different kind of loser to John, she really tries to do the right thing. She just can't be trusted to make the right choices, not even for herself. And especially not with the very shitty decision she makes at the end. 😕

These stories are seriously awesome. This trilogy was well written, the uncomfortable subject matter is captivating, and the portrayal of these awful characters was great. Because no matter how annoyed or frustrated I got while reading these, I enjoyed the hell out of them!

I highly recommend this trilogy. Unless you're squeamish, of course.
