Book review of “Unlocked”
“Unlocked” by Rachael O’Bryan
This book is about a woman’s relationships with men while working as a tutor in college. With all the ups and downs of this part in Rebecca’s life, it’s a clear view of how relationships can impact the rest of your life.
With all the intimate details of Rebecca’s life, it reminded me of reading a diary with very little dialog, which I didn’t mind. The chapters are broken up into little stories and I thought that was a creative way to draw the reader in — I know I was! The main character, Rebecca, has very low self-esteem, which was sad because I liked her. With each story and relationship, it seemed to change the way she thought about men and life. By the end, I was happy for her because she seemed to be content, but unfortunately, I didn’t buy it. I would have really liked to see more of a change at the end, making her truly evolved in life and in love. The writing was good and it didn’t drag, but no matter how much I tried to connect with Rebecca, I couldn’t. Overall, I thought this book was really good. If you’re looking for a quick read, filled with the ups and downs of relationships, you will really enjoy this book.
I give this book 3 out of 5 stars!
