Come si suppone che debba incominciare questa recensione? Sono davvero in grado di parlare di questo libro, di rendergli giustizia? Certo che no. Quando il destino mette un capolavoro come questo sul tuo cammino, non puoi far altro che arrenderti e annegare.


Mi chiedo quanto forte debba premere per far uscire il sangue. Non forte, decisi.
Qualche secondo, questo è tutto ciò di cui ho bisogno.

Fin dal prologo sapevo che questa storia mi avrebbe segnato irrimediabilmente.
Nel bene, nel male ▬ ha davvero importanza?
Lo stile e la suddivisione dei capitoli sono stati l'esca che mi ha attratto nella trappola dell'autrice.
E da quel momento in poi, per me non c'è stato scampo.

Altri giorni non entrava, ma guardava verso la mia finestra mentre attraversava il parcheggio e sollevava una mano. Le finestre erano oscurate, quindi non so se mi vedeva salutarlo di rimando. Ma sapeva dov'ero, Bob, lui lo sapeva.

Lui, lei.
Jenna e il signor Anderson.
Una sedicenne e il suo professore di chimica.


Scrutai la porta del bagno.
Avrei potuto. Sarebbe stato così semplice. Una rapida rotazione del polso. Una lieve pressione. Avrei potuto farlo. Così lo feci. Per la prima volta dopo mesi, Bob... chiusi a chiave la porta.

Ma se è così vietato, perché il mio cuore accelerava ogniqualvolta lei e lui erano insieme? Come potevo resistere al magnetismo che elettrizza l'aria tra di loro?
Non ho potuto.
Perché la loro attrazione è sottile, sapientemente celata e tenuta sotto controllo.

5.0 su 5 stelle Roller-coaster of an ending, relatable characters, and impeccable writing. 3 settembre 2015
Di Layla - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I feel a bit like a sheep because I agree with every single one of these reviews. This book was beyond words. It left me in an emotional state for so long that it took me months to write this review, and even now it seems impossible to convey how much I loved this book.
I really don't want to give the story away, you need to start it without knowing anything, so I'll talk about the writers amazing style, prose, and characters. This is the first book I've ever read from Ilsa J. Bick and I knew after finishing that this was an author I know I'll look to again and again. Her characters were believable, relatable, and cause the reader to sympathize with without actually having gone through the same events that they have. I was particularly impressed with the character development of Mr. Anderson.
Jenna, with a seemingly ordinary name is no ordinary character herself, and even though the ending leaves our main character in a situation that would leave anyone irreparably broken, you're left with the feeling that she's going to be just fine. She's a very strong character and that's admirable in a book. The writing is impeccable and an easy attention grabber and is great for a novice reader AND a long term book worm, such as myself. If you are reading this review and wondering if Drowning Instinct is the book for you, definitely give it a chance. I highly recommend. The ending alone is sure to stick with you for a very long time.

Di Pink Amy - Pubblicato su

Grade: B+

Fresh out of a four month stint in a psych hospital, Jenna starts a new school under the watchful eyes of her parents and school officials. When her chemistry teacher, Mr. Anderson takes in interest in her welfare, she fights off a crush on the attractive, popular teacher and coach.

Jenna is an unreliable narrator, but just how unreliable I'm still not certain after finishing DROWNING INSTINCT. Readers are left to determine the extent of Jenna's disturbance, how accurately she perceives the world around her. She's an intriguing, multilayered character, figuratively drowning beneath her father's controlling rage and her mother's alcoholism. Guarded, yet vulnerable, I could easily understand why Jenna was drawn to Mr Anderson, an adult who paid attention and bolstered her esteem. She was easy to sympathize with and root for. Since I only knew the characters through Jenna's distorted views, the minor characters seemed fairly one dimensional, particularly her parents. I didn't know how predatorily Mr Anderson acted. He certainly displayed inappropriate boundaries from the very beginning.

Ilsa J. Bick gave Jenna an authentic, raw voice. DROWNING INSTINCT is fast paced, drawing me in from the first page, leaving me thinking after the last. I feel frustrated that the ending was fairly open and a bit of a let down. I prefer more definitive wrap-ups, which kept me from giving five stars.

Themes: mental illness, self injury, alcoholism, abuse, high school, teachers

DROWING INSTINCT is a fairly dark novel co-starring a slew of adults who let a fragile sixteen year old down.

This book was recommended by E. K. Blair stating that she was still haunted by this book years after reading it....I had to know more about it so after reading the description and some of the reviews I had to buy it regardless of the price...I have read 100's of books... Some of them very very good and have been haunted by a few so after just finishing this book that I could not put down and will be haunted by I am determined to not cry but I feel so sad for these two souls...I know we couldn't trust everything she relayed to be true. I know I shouldn't have wanted these two people to be together (I am quite conflicted about this) but I did. To have something truly good in her life and in his and to have that ripped away from them both especially in that way was just tragic and yet beautiful...I loved this book...I loved the way that from the first to the last page I was emotionally invested in her/their heart rate sped up knowing something bad was about to happen....I am so glad I had the opportunity to read this and am sad its much so that I want to read it again right now (I'm a glutton for punishment)...I somehow think if I start it over it will undo the bad stuff for a little while and they can still have each other a little longer...weird huh...especially since it had already happened before the first page lol....this I can now say is one of the best if not the best and most interesting story I have read....I would love to have his POV but then I would have loved to see them get their HEA and neither of those will be...she is fictional and I still want to pray for her and hope he truly did save her....thank you

Di Meredith - Pubblicato su

Before I buy any book I go to the reviews, I read a couple of good reviews then a couple of bad reviews. If after that I still want to read the book I "try sample" on my kindle.

So I found Drowning Instinct read the book description and when to the reviews. The first review I read was long but in the first couple of paragraphs the reviewer said something about this book is the kind of book you have to read without knowing anything going into it. I stopped reading and bought the book.

So with that said, I would love to tell you everything that I thought about this book. The characters, the tone, the plot, my take on it all, my favorite quotes. But I'm not going to. I have to say I agree with that reviewer and say you have to read this book going in blind.

I guess I can say this, the writing was great. I felt like I was sitting right next to Jenna while she told her story. The words melted off the page and all you could hear was her voice telling the story.
And this is not a story you will for get. You know when you're looking through your kindle library looking at all your books going: what was that book about again?

Anyway I'm glad I read this book.

Di Keely Ann - Pubblicato su

Holy. Hell. What an emotional ride.. I think I experienced every possible feeling a human being can have reading this little heartbreaker.

"They call it the drowning instinct. It's when drowning doesn't look like drowning. ... you don't look like you're in trouble. You don't scream, but that's because you can't... You're just there, so people don't notice your dying. ..."

I read it practically in one sitting ~ unable to put it down ~ and I remember looking up from it from time to time, catching the breathe I didn't realize I was holding, and shaking my head in disbelief as if the movement would knock the shock out of me.

There are some very controversial elements in this story ~ factors that have seemed to influence some readers to give this book a more negative review. An older man. A teenage girl. High school teacher. Troubled student. Sounds like a recipe for disaster ~ or at least some jail time. But, although situations like this would ordinarily cause me to cringe, I actually felt... hope?... for these two tragically broken people...

The story is told in Jenna's voice as she "confesses" the truth of an incident into a policeman's tape recorder.. And from the very start, it's made completely clear that she is... damaged... Jenna has been ~ nearly literally ~ through Hell, back, Hell, and back again... Her family is a well-masked mess, and she has the horrific urge to release her pain through seeing her own blood seep from her skin ~ she's a cutter, but she's trying not to be...

She moves to a new school ~ one she thought would be like any other, until she meets Anderson. It begins innocent enough. A well intentioned teacher trying to help one of his students thrive... so when does it come to the point where it crosses the line? The thing is, Mitch is just as torn apart, and he sees a mirror image of his broken heart in Jenna.... They seem to feel that they pull strength from each other's tragedies... but, at the same time, they destroy each other and themselves...

This book is almost overwhelming at times.. Jenna is struck hard with one obstacle after another ~ it's amazing she's able to hold on at all.. A drunken mother and Psycho Dad ~ parents who are too busy with their own dysfunctional relationship to see what is happening with their daughter. A pedophile for a grandfather, a brother away at war... and in the middle of all that, her beacon of hope, Mitch Anderson... the only one who sees her and brings her the truth.. or does he?

The writing is poetic and Jenna's voice distinct in its resigned tone. Not a light read with its elements of self-destruction, denial, and betrayal.. But oh-so-worth your time..

Five out of five stars from this reader.
