[Book Review] White Space by Ilsa J. Bick


White Space (Dark Passages, #1)White Space 

by 


Ilsa Bick’s WHITE SPACE, pitched as The Matrix meets Inkheart, about a seventeen-year-old girl who jumps between the lines of books and into the white space where realities are created and destroyed – but who may herself be nothing more than a character written into being from an alternative universe, to Greg Ferguson at Egmont, in a two-book deal, by Jennifer Laughran at Andrea Brown Literary Agency.

Due to complete mind-f#ck that this books brings, this will be a very short review…

Before I started reading White Space, I saw some of the reviews and wasn’t sure if I was going to like or even understand the meaning of it. But after starting it and getting more invested in those teenager’s tragedy, I was really surprised. I am a big fan on dark fantasy and even though sometimes it’s a little hard to get into the world-building and vocabulary concept, this was a complete and utter, like I already said – mind-f#ck. 

Different POVs of this book made sure that you paid attention to every little detail and even made me re-read the previous chapter. But I honestly didn’t mind because of the tension that was put on every single page. Some chapters stopped in the middle of the sentence (which is referred to the concept of White Space book passage) and made it more thrilling to find out what happens. 

White Space is that kind of dark, twisted fantasy story that will test your mind and make you question everything you know about writing. Once you think you have a grasp on what is going to happen: BAM! A guy is on the windshield, clawing at the window without his tongue and his eyeballs popping out.. yeaaaaa… you’re in for a scary ride my friends.

  1. This sounds like a great book. I am so tired of reading the same old same old lately. White Space sounds like it would have me thinking... similar to the book S.

  3. This is one of those books that everyone seems to love or hate. I've seen a lot of reviews that say it's confusing and extremely hard to follow. I feel like it might be a little too non-linear for me, but I might just give it a try anyway.

    1. That's what I thought. And honestly, it was really hard to get into it at first but it's just one of those books that you have to go with it
