***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Plagued by insomnia, the narrator walks the city looking for something, for someone to bring him peace. Then he finds Lillian, the puzzling, seductive stranger — or does she find him? They are instantly drawn to each other in intimate and unexpected ways: each of them finding what they need, at least for awhile. But before they get too comfortable, Lillian alters their unspoken rules: first with an offer, then with a threat.
What starts as a quiet, intimate testing of boundaries, becomes a sprawling journey from a snowbound city, across the Atlantic Ocean, to sun-bleached routes through Greece. All the while retaining the intimacy of a one-room apartment. Our narrator changes his life in unimaginable ways but still needs more. He needs answers, he needs intimacy, he needs to feel human, but Lillian is an unhelpful teacher, keeping both her past and their future closely guarded secrets.
Leech is an unsettling, poetic, relationship tale riding a thin line of the supernatural.
How much can you give and how much can you take before it’s too much?
It’s a very addicting story and you have all these questions about what is going on and some may be answered and some may not be. It’s very open to interpretation because a lot of stories will explain what characters look like, their age, give them subtle hints into their personality but you don’t get that with this. The man can be as old as you want him to be, he can look however you want him to look and you never even know his name which I never even realized when I was reading it. It’s a very unique horror story.
