A Well Read Woman 5 Star Book Review

“You made me sacrifice my life for a scheme that I didn’t agree to be a part of.”

Sick Part III was a satisfying conclusion to the series. Although it’s been awhile since I’ve read Sick II, within the first line I was back in the world of Susan and John Branch, and what a twisted world it was!

I loved this series; it was dark, raw, and above all, SICK. It’s a peek behind closed doors and I read it in almost a voyeuristic fashion. This is not a novel that you wish to jump inside the character, walk in their shoes, and live vicariously as if it were a romance or popular fantasy novel. Nobody wants to be John or Susan Branch. As a matter of fact, as I was scrolling through Facebook I saw a status from a popular book blog that asked the question, “You are now the main character of the last book you read, who are you?”, and I thought, noooo, I’m Susan Branch!

There were so many interesting elements to this story, but what I found the most intriguing was Susan’s codependency and her mindset. It triggered so many emotions in me. It also made me wonder about human nature and how others influence our lives. She almost let others steer her life, like she didn’t have any original thoughts because others polluted her mind with what they wanted her to believe. This switch was especially evident at the end. It was fascinating.

Author Christa Wojo created realistic characters who are flawed, yet sympathetic. Susan and John Branch are the kind of people who one minute you want to slap and the next you want to hug. Grab your tissues and download the series. I guarantee you have never read anything like it.

Overall, if you enjoy a good drama with a strong focus on mental illness and relationships, SICK is an original series with accurate depictions. I can’t say too much, because I don’t want to give away the specific illness. Oh, and the ending… is shocking!

  1. Thank you so much for your review, April. It was tough wrapping up the saga of John and Susan. I wanted it to be the sickest of the books without overdoing it. I’m thrilled you found the ending satisfying (and shocking). Thanks again!
