Common Knowledge



Brilliant sequal to the The Three... a New Year's eve cruise that takes a twist for the bizarre...Found myself both loving and being totally annoyed at the open ending, but since this part of a trilogy, it makes sense.

Also, it is totally awesome being a South African and spotting the all the South Africanisms (lekker!!!) throughout the book, which will definately confuse some other nationalities that don't know these words (morsdood!!!).

This book, just like the first one, is full of WTF moments. A little hard to follow at times, but a very interesting and entertaining read.

This story was a bit of a pleasant surprise for me because I thought it was going to be a dud and it ended up being much more intriguing and engaging than I originally expected it would be. It's a story about two people, a guy, and a girl and their paths cross via an e-mail sent to the wrong e-mail address. Bee and Nick end up constantly communicating via their e-mail thread/chat and they get to know each other and then become attached and start to fall in love with each other.
This book threw me because all I was expecting and thinking was going to happen is the same old kind of rom-com type story, which I don't always like, but this was so much better. This had elements of sci-fi/a little fantasy all entwined with a rom-com storyline in a type of a contemporary setting. It had me thinking and lost in thought examining things in life and the story wondering if the ideas in this story were plausible or possible and I concluded that some of it was plausible but not all of it is possible, not likely anyway.
I've been trying to think about how to review this to portray how good it is, but the more I'm writing the review, the more I realize I can't adequately portray it. Also, I can't say too much about it because a lot of what I think and want to say could ruin it and give some twists, etc. away that make it better to enjoy the story if you don't know when you're going in. So, yes this is a book that I think is probably best to go in blind to enjoy it the best. If you want to know the summary then check it out on Goodreads here, www.goodreads.com/book/show/58575269-the-impossible-us.
Go check it out and read it, you won't be disappointed and you'll find yourself thinking a lot about things that come out of the left-field from the story in the books. Thanks so much to Berkley Publishing Group/Berkley and NetGalley for letting me read and review this fantastic read. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
This will be posted on my website, www.annettemwebber.com, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Instagram.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I would have to say it’s because of the writing. I usually prefer a book told in third person rather than first, but this is an exception. There are definitely creepy moments, although the thought of crawling through tiny tunnels many feet under the Earth is perhaps the most scary moments, expertly claustrophobia inducing. A rather strange atmospheric ghost story with a protagonist who is more of an anti-hero. Despite this, you can’t help following Simon’s journey and even rooting for… I’m not sure what. Not Simon as such — although I’m not sure he deserved all that happened to him — but you still want something good to come of this. The story contains several threats and battles, including the climbing of Everest and questioning mental health. Not everyone will find the ending perfect, but I’m not sure how else the author could have concluded the book; for me, the biggest negative is that it felt almost too abrupt. As Stephen King has said, some books are best enjoyed for the journey rather than the destination and I can’t help thinking perhaps this is one of those, but I’m glad to have spent time with it and will read more by this author.… (more)
