    One thought on “The Madman’s Daughter”

    1. I really feel like I gave this book a fair chance, I read it all the way to the end because I kept wanting to love it and get caught up in the atmosphere of this Victorian horror story but it was not to be Not everything I have to say about The Madman s Daughter is bad, so thankfully this will not be a wholly negative review, but there were a number of things I didn t like and those elements combined with long periods of slow, plotless boredom made me feel this was no than a two star read But l [...]

    2. I loved this book It is so twisted and crazy, and I really enjoyed how dark it is It s been a while since a book has actually freaked me out a little and this one did that It s just so weird and messed up, but I couldn t stop reading I really love the writing and Juliet s voice I felt sucked in by her story There is a big love triangle, which I think turns people away from it I personally enjoy love triangles and I think this one was done fairly well.The ending took my by surprise along with som [...]

    3. Wow this book surprised me in the best way possible So interesting and mysterious A must read And that plot twist at the endhhhh On to book two

    4. What a great twist on a classic story The Madman s Daughter is a spinoff story for The Island of Dr Moreau by HG Wells While you can read this book without reading the other, I encourage the reading of both Especially to see where the inspiration for this book comes from Some parts follow very closely the story of Wells book and others quite different In particular is Megan Shepherd s original character, Juliet.Juliet is the daughter the the infamous Dr Moreau She is 16 and orphaned on her own H [...]

    5. Mostly creepy, very goryd sometimes sexy and hot, which makes me feel very uncomfortable with myself It is not the most exciting read if you want fast paced action, look elsewhere This book is atmospheric and psychological above all else Lest I inadvertently made it sound boring, it is not There is plenty of adventuree heroine finds herself travelling halfway around the world to a wild, mostly uncharted island, after all, but I feel that the ambience and overall tension in the book exceeds the a [...]

    6. Okay, so do you guys remember when I read Shadow and Bone and I thought the plot was kinda cool, I liked the side characters, I liked the heroine I got on board with her weird morality and can do attitude but I fucking hated Mal I m writing this on my phone and iOS 10 actually just autocorrected Mal to anal which is basically the gist of it Well guess what.Round two Motherfucking Montgomery.This tool THIS guy I swear to fucking god I actually loved Juliet, because she spoke to me and I related t [...]

    7. Riveting beginning with fantastic scenes of horror An uneven middle that I d love to do all kinds of unholy surgery to, especially the over emphasis on the uninteresting and rather tedious romance s But saved by a great premise, awesomely freakish moments, solid writing, and a bang up, untraditional ending Author to watch Review to come.

    8. Juliet Moreau is living a somewhat normal teenage life in London The rumors of her father s past never left her, but they made her a stronger and smarter woman With a genuine interest in science, she can indeed call herself her father s daughter Everything was going normal until she once again meets Montgomery, her father s young assistant Their crossing of paths changed her life for good.I am quite impressed with this book, especially because this is a YA book I haven t read an amazing YA book [...]

    9. Warning inappropriate koalas ahead.It happened again I waited too long to read a book that I knew I was going to like Instead, I picked up too many books along the way that were nothing but a crap shoot What I d hoped for Creepy Gory Spooky Did it happen Check, check, and check.What I wasn t looking for Overdone Romance.Did it happen Uhice In a way I wasn t expecting.No, there were no actual threesomes Sorry to disappoint.This book was a retelling of The Island of Dr Moreau and a pretty decent o [...]

    10. Well The Madman s Daughter is clearly its own kind of disturbing It s cruel and grisly I kind of loved it If you enjoy bizarre mad doctor stories, if you enjoy Gothic novels in general, then this book is for you As a big fan of Gothic novels, I can tell you that they are much than just a book They stand out Being able to write a good Gothic novel is an art in of itself The biggest part of what makes them great is the rich atmosphere that they exude If an author is able to create a story that se [...]

    11. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz sasdfj huh Oh, is the book over Well, I guess I d better review it, thenE GOODJuliet, our main protagonist and narrator, was pretty decent for the first few chapters Smart, hard working, determined, but not without her female friends and wistful dreams I liked her, really I did, but only at the start Sadly, this goodness didn t last.The writing, while not my style, was certainly atmospheric Although it also had this strange tendency to be vague and wordy a [...]

    12. Official Rating 4.8 Stars This book is incredibly enjoyable, it is inspired by H.G Wells The Island of Dr Moreau which I have yet to read However I still enjoyed reading this book a lot regardless D The story is extremely unique and different, I m so glad I picked this up The plot was amazing though the beginning was a tiny bit slow, however towards the middle there were a lot plot twist I won t say the plot twits were extremely shocking but it is indeed unpredictable The other thing I really li [...]

    13. I just lowered my rating from four stars to a generous three because, having read the second book, how I feel about this book as a whole and its ending is much negative than before.See, I have this really annoying problem yes, it s a problem Others may call it a skill, but trust me, when you have it, it s a problem where, if I go into something knowing that there s a huge twist in the end, I will introspect every little detail that I normally would have overlooked had I not known there was a tw [...]

    14. 3.5 starsEvery girl wants to believe the best of her father, doesn t she I barely remember mine, but no one could convince me he was anything other than perfect Sixteen year old Juliet Moreau, once a proper young lady and now no than a servant, is desperate to learn the truth of her father, the man who abandoned her and her mother and left them to starve When her father s former servant and now assistant Montgomery shows up in London, Juliet talks him into taking her to her father, on a remote [...]

    15. Wow, I did not see that ending coming If you can look past a very clich and unnecessary love triangle, I can actually highly recommend this It s a twist on the classic The Island of Doctor Moreau by H.G Wells and it s full of suspense, eerie atmosphere and some surprising twists and turns I already got the sequels and I can t wait to read them, since they re based on two of my favorite classics Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Frankenstein

    16. My rating 2.5 of 5 starsA copy of The Madman s Daughter was provided to me by Balzer Bray Edelweiss for review purposes Dead flesh and sharpened scalpels didn t bother me I was my father s daughter, after all My nightmares were made of darker things I feel the need to start off by saying I didn t dislike this book but obviously considering my rating I have some explaining to do There was creepiness, there was a decent story line, but the pacing was so incredibly slow that it had an adverse effec [...]

    17. The world knew my father as a villain I knew him as the thin man in a tweed suit who carried me on his shoulders during the Royal Guard s parades I needed to know which man my father was the monster, or the misunderstood genius This was a really creepy and entertaining story, with several twists to the tale I really liked Juliet and the other characters in this book I felt sorry for Juliet and everything she had been through with her father being labelled as a madman, and her mother dying and le [...]

    18. I picked this book up at the library by chance, thinking it was the first book in another series, but I cannot begin to tell y all how happy I am that I did This book was dark, gritty, and rough It was grotesque and sad but in an incredibly addicting way I was a goner after the first chapter, that s how good this is Juliet is the madman s daughter, the creepy crazy Dr Moreau He is both twisted and deluded, a deadly combination He left Juliet and her mother when Juliet was about 10 The novel is J [...]

    19. See reviews at YA Midnight Reads3.5 starsAdd some science, romance, grotesque, deformed animals and an abandoned Victorian gothic setting in the historical era and there you have, The Madman s Daughter This book cannot be described as fun, weaved heavily with mystery and horrific writing, this book should be described as like the title suggests madness Pure madness.Ever since her mother died and her father, a once loved scientist was also pronounced to be dead, Juliet s life has been nothing b [...]

    20. This is a young adult novel with a love triangle You have been warned Edward and Montgomery were suddenly both by my side, each taking an arm.My face burned as I looked between them Two boys, two sets of hands on my wrists One rough and calloused, the other strong yet smooth My emotions knotted tighter, threatening to cut off my circulation I picked it up knowing this and expecting the above because I was seduced by the plot The madman is actually Dr Moreau Yes, that Dr Moreau The one who, in my [...]

    21. head deskthis is all but the reaction you will getfrom this reader who d rather soon forgetthis novel s hype ran at a fever pitchbut it gave me hives and made me itch could ve been so goodand I d imagine most of you loved itas you shouldbut I really could not digesta love triangle is not what I behesti m sorry I could no longer continuei m sorry my enthusiasm you couldn t renewa heroine whose heart was not in itbut for two boys I just don t get it.i m sure there s to this storybut I ve already [...]

    22. The love triangle ruined what could ve been a perfectly horrific Gothic YA.Plus, the name Edward s been kind of ruined.

    23. My review style is, and always will be, to write up my review right after I complete the book, and I do mean right after If I can t write the review, I will save the last chapter until I have time Doing otherwise would allow me to slack off, and I would never get anything reviewed, as well as giving me time to forget the book The downside of this reviewing method, one I just have to accept, is that occasionally I have to try to compose a meaningful, coherent review while shell shocked by what I [...]

    24. To me blood smelled like home I have a love hate relationship with anything goth emo horror I love to read it, but hate to be scared or creeped out Terrify me and I resent you But do nothing and I shall call you bunny See you can t win.I remember The Island of Dr Moreau movie when I was little My older brothers were obsessed with it and kept it on repeat in the VCR While I was usually around when it was playing, I can only remember snippets from covering my eyes When I heard this was inspired by [...]

    25. This book and I got on about as well as this Why Because of A lot of this with a lot of this equals me doing this and this but there are admittedly some fun creepy things like this you can blame Meg for that last gif 1 star for writing 1 star for twists

    26. 3.5 Immediate Reaction I haven t read The Island of Dr Moreau so I had no idea what to expect going in, but this was surprisingly good in a dark, twisted way The last few chapters were a thrill ride I wouldn t have guessed the plot twists in a million years.I have my reasons for the somewhat low rating on that later but for now, I just wanted to say this The Madman s Daughter is a very strong debut in the horror genre Full Review An intriguing start and an amazing end, marred by a somewhat list [...]

    27. Dark, strange, mysterious, intriguing, and twisted are all words that I would use to describe this book It was the perfect October read I absolutely love the atmosphere of this book The setting added so much to the feeling of the overall story I don t think if it was set in present day and another place that it would have the same effect The book had an ominous feeling throughout and you could just feel that things weren t going to end well There were no happy endings in this story The character [...]
