By: Tarryn Fisher

With the last Tarryn Fisher book I read I mentioned that afterwards, I had been forever altered and after reading Marrow, it was no different. Having already read a Tarryn Fisher book, understanding her style of writing and expecting that I would go through an emotion filled journey, I thought maybe I could control my reactions, to be less shocked after reading – I was wrong. Fisher exceeded any expectations I had and once again managed to rip my heart out with her words, returning it to me at the end with sewn up holes all over it. Using her vivid and evocative storytelling, I was once again taken aback by Fisher’s successful ability to create such a riveting story with such little dialogue between characters. It is meant with sincere respect and in the utmost positive light, when I say that Tarryn Fisher is the only writer I have come across who creates such an intense and haunting character, with so much depth, that the story ultimately needs nothing or nobody else. Fisher’s writing style seems to reflect her main characters. Whether it is unintentional or intentional Fisher’s writing and her main characters have so much depth, heart and strength it is unrivalled.

Marrow takes you on the Journey of a girl named Margot. Margot feels everything and with an incomparable sense of empathy we follow Margot as she tries to bring justice to all the wrongs in her world. Using our own empathy, we need to remind ourselves that this story is real and that these things are taking place; no matter where you live. The most heartbreaking factor of this whole story is the knowledge that someone you know is getting beaten; dying unnecessarily, is a product of addiction or suffering at the hands of neglect and nothing is/can be done to stop it.

Like Mud Vein, I believe a review will just rehash a story that I will not be able to tell fittingly. I feel like my words may make the story line inconsequential, when all I want to do is bring the story to life by highlighting the importance of having people like Margot in our everyday lives; willing to sacrifice for the safety, love and appreciation of others.

Here’s to My Margot…

“That’s because humans are built to live with pain. Weak people let their pain choke them to a slow, emotional death. Strong people use that pain, Margot. They use it as fuel.”

“I kill because I can. I kill because no one stops me. I kill because no one is stopping them. I kill to protect the innocent”

 

For anyone that has ever felt unworthy. If you’ve ever been at the hands of danger and destruction, remember somebody out there was put on this earth to find and save you. Let them.
