“The Retribution Of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin” BOOK REVIEW

I finally read it! In less than 24 hours. It was so worth it.

If you are reading this is because you already read the first 2 books of ” The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer” series.

I will possibly write SPOILERS. Or might write something that will lead you to a SPOILER. So, it’s better you don’t read this if you haven’t read the book.

But I made a little something without SPOILERS for you.

Here’s the NON-SPOILER review:

This book kept me reading and reading because it was so good. You keep reading to find answers and at the end you will be satisfied with the conclusion. I loved this book to ruins. This is all I can say without spoilers.

Bonus: At some point the book changes POV. I won’t tell of who.



So… here I go. SPOILERS AHEAD.



Let’s start from the end. The ending of Retribution was totally perfect. I was so happy for Noah and Mara. They shouldt be together but their love was more than everything else. He choose her over his mother, over his father, over himself. So did she. That scene in New York (where I thought he was going to propose) was the best ending.

You go on this ride where you don’t know if Noah is alive, and you hope he is because Mara feel it. I felt it too. I knew he wasn’t going to die. Trying to see him alive again kept me reading until I finished the book. And reading them dying and come back to life was like watching one of those 11th Doctor Who episodes.

After waiting for him to show up, the rest of his scenes were all that we wanted. GIRLS!! And we finally could get into his mind and read how he really love Mara. They will love each other to ruins and I am happy for it.

The Lord Of The Rings references Mara said made me love her so much more. I love Mara like you have no idea. I love her character and she’s one of my favorite fictional girl now.

And Jaime, we all love Jaime, right?

Plus, this book resumes the meaning of my blog and I will quote from the book here and you will understand:


“If we had learned anything concrete by now, we had learned this: we weren’t alone. There are other like us out there. People that think they’re just strange or different or troubled or depressed or sick, They might just be. But they might also be something more. They could become one of us.” 

“…But maybe someone like us will read it and they’ll know they’re not alone.” 

I want to thanks so much to Michelle Hodkin for writing this twisted and messy love story that will be forever in my heart. Thank you for the tears, the laughs, the smiles, the sighs, EVERYTHING. So worth it.
