The Blackbird’s Song by Katie Marshall (Book Review #898)


The blackbird’s song is a sad story about Brian, who turns into a destructive person and a murderer due to his abusive trauma experience after his mother’s death. His father, the abuser, affects this boy in such a way that he grows to have multiple personalities. One of Brian’s victims is Lizzie, a sixteen-year-old. She manages to survive the assault and instead suffers from PTSD and paranoia. Her anxiety is high as she keeps thinking her killer will return. And so the adventure begins with the reader learning more about mental illness and how twisted thoughts can get.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The serial crime thriller is suspenseful and filled with elements of excitement. Although the protagonist is Lizzie, I still sensed Brian’s existence to be more overwhelming as the effects of him over her was dominantly visible. For this reason, I wasn’t exactly sure if she was the sole protagonist. The twist of the story is what stood out to me. The nature of the writing provoked constant attention and intrigue.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read fiction, crime, and related thrilling stories.
