Book Review: Insanity by Lauren Hammond

Insanity follows Adelaide Carmichael AKA Addy as she is brought into the Oakhill Institute kicking and screaming. She doesn't remember much of what happened. The only thing she remembers is that her and her boyfriend Damien Allen where in love and supposed to run away with one another and yet she ended up here.The question is Why?

This Cover is amazing.

So first off we have the main character Addy who is unreliable to say the least. I mean how can we now whats going if she doesn't. It's what makes the book interesting, piercing together whats more likely to be real and whats not.

We follow Addy in the time before coming to the Institute where she is experiencing first love with Damien. We follow the progression of their relationship as well as the deteriorating relationship she has with her father.

I liked the relationship between Addy and Damien. It was lovely and sweet. Though I felt at times we didn't get to learn more about Damien. Which was a shame, but then you have to remember that this is ultimately Addy's story.

We see the obstacles in there relationship from his mother to her drunken and abusive father.

Following their love story was interesting though I think we all know that it probably didn't end well just for the fact that she'd currently residing in Oakhill.

As we follow her in the past to see what lead to her to be locked up in the first place we also spend time with her in the institution in present day. We see how she interacts with the other members of Oakhill. We see her therapy sessions and her trying to get back her memory. All while trying to escape from the institute which has more secrets then she can ever imagine and a danger that's all to real

I found the story to be an interesting story about the complexity of the human mind and what it does to help preserve and help ones sanity.

This is the first book in a trilogy and I'm so excited to see what happens next.

Overall I gave this book a 5/5 stars.
