About this deal
Now, that being said, cause I had to say something to ease of the burning issues on my mind, and not really touching the storyline of The Wild by K Webster, so I don't spoil it for those who CAN find the EXPLANATION of the actions unraveling in the story.

University of Alaska has a high suicide rate among their students,” Devon blurts out. More useless information. “Looks like college is out of the question.” A couple of years ago, you wouldn’t catch me reading the kind of books that K. Webster writes. I was afraid of dark reads. But now I crave dark reads. I love this author and have come to expect that she will try and push her readers’ boundaries but she’ll spin things in a way that makes you feel less guilty for enjoying a story that to most will seem truly f’d up. I knew going into this, that when the author says the subject matter is extremely taboo, that she is not being overly dramatic. I had strong suspicions of what the storyline would be about and I was right. K. Webster delivers her signature panty melting smut and I did struggle with how I found myself pretty turned on throughout but then I recalled how so many of her other books turned out and I knew she would throw me a life line eventually that would make me feel a little less guilty about the effect this book had on me.I mean, I guess I "get" what she was trying to say...but to suggest that people are cowards and close-minded for NOT wanting to read something they feel doesn't align with their likes and values is kind of, well, passive aggressive, no? Almost like a taunt. What gets me is if your son dies due to a snake bite what makes moving off the grid to the middle of the wilderness sound good? I understand running from a bad reputation but hell, you could’ve moved out of the country. It just seemed like an extreme choice. Devon squats to inspect a plant and I notice a bush with many berries. Her dog sniffs around and his ears perk up when he hears a sound beyond the trees.

If you can't separate certain issues from the fact that this is fiction - whether that be due to a moral, preferential, or trigger standpoint - then you should absolutely skip this book.
Yes, I can appreciate fiction for fiction sake, but I also feel that there are lines that you just don't cross. Every reader is different, so that's not to say that everyone will feel the same about it, and to each their own. But this reader? I was disgusted. Sabrina was a little harder to convince. She couldn’t see my vision. Despite the blueprints I’d drawn up of a cozy log cabin and ideas for collecting water and planting crops, she was confused. Her life was our million-dollar home in San Francisco. Her life was nothing but pictures and things that belonged to our son.
