Arcs and Requested Reviews – One Visit by George Veck


Hey Bookworms, I have mentioned many times before the beauty of being able to find through new Authors; books that I wouldn’t have picked up otherwise. When I’m asked to review and share my thoughts with you, it’s always a bit unnerving because I might simply not like the book because it might be too distant from what I’m used to.

However, that same difference can be what makes it stand apart and create magic. Such is the case of the book I’m sharing with you now. This is so unlike any book I have reviewed before.. Not so much in theme… Because I do love dark topics in my books but more in intensity and realism.

Without further ado, let’s get to it:

One Visit by Geoge Veck

This was certainly an out of my comfort zone kind of read for me.

And it was great, it sucked me right into this world that reminded me a bit aesthetically of the movie Trainsppoting. That gritty atmosphere and drugged-induced vibe.

This is a crime drama that certainly doesn’t shy away from making the reader live through the ordeal of addiction and the toxicity of the relations it creates.

It was very interesting to learn about Wales and its nuances, ranging from everyday things to the underbelly culture our cast of characters are exposed to.. Every little detail in the narrative, the use of slang native to drug users, (I was thankful for a few of the footnotes) all works to blend in this documentary-style book.

As a reader, you are invested in a story but still remain a spectator … You can see what they cannot, frustrating as that might be, because you know the outcome of it all won’t be sunshine and rainbows.

This is a book worth reading for sure, impactful in unexpected ways. But beware of the subject if you want to dive into this dark world.
