I have honestly never read another book like it, so I can’t really compare it with something for you. It’s a fantastic book, about Yelena, a criminal who decides to become a food taster rather than be hanged.

But it turns out eating poisoned food is the least of her worries…

I really liked how Yelena is allowed to be self-centered and self-serving, I hate the recent trope that women have to give a crap what the people that are hurting them feel like. She is allowed to be angry, and afraid, and sad, she’s allowed to react like a real person to her shitty situation and that’s so refreshing.

I also like that you never know all that much more than Yelena does, so twists and turns have a lot more emotional impact because you don’t always see them coming.
