The Butterfly Garden (The Collector #1) Reviews
The Gardener likes to collect butterflies for his collection...
This book left me speechless! One of my favourite reads of 2016 so far and a book I will never ever forget reading. The synopsis just sucked me in and from reading the very first paragraph I knew my choice to delve into this novel was a good one. Time just flew by and I lost track of my life as I read this exceptional novel. This one got me on so many levels. I can't rave enough.
Let's have a taste of what pulled me in:

This is the stupidest goddamn book. If you can suspend every inch of disbelief in your body and go into The Butterfly Garden accepting that it's in some kind of alternate fantasy world where women lack free will of any kind then maybe it's an okay book. Let's take a brief quiz to see how you'd do!
You wake up in a garden prison constructed by a madman who kidnapped you and is going to kill you on your 21st birthday. Do you (a) try to escape or (b) passively accept your fate and go make ~best frie ...more
This was a decent enough psychological/mystery/horror thriller - that won't be to everyone's liking; due to the subject matter.
It starts off with two FBI agents, Victor Hanoverian and Brandon Eddison, interviewing a young woman, Maya/Inara, who was rescued with other girls that were being held captive by a person only known as 'The Gardener.'
The story is told in third and first person perspectives. The third person being in the interview room (mainly), and the first person is where she gradual ...more
WOW... alright ladies and gents listen up... What a dark and beautiful mind f**k!
This book was truly disturbing and graphic and let me tell you definitely NOT for your average thriller lover. Firstly, let me just say I will never look at a butterfly the same way again.. like EVER. This was such a uniquely crafted novel! It completely sucked me in and I could NOT put it down. I devoured this like a triple cinnamon cupcake from Sprinkles (my obsession).

This novel is unlike anything I've ever read before. It's dark and disturbing but so beautifully written that it draws you in to the horrifying world constructed within the pages.
It's no secret from the description of the book that young girls of around 16 years old have been 'collected' by a man who calls himself the Gardener and brought to a beautiful garden somewhere in New York. The garden is a paradise complete with beautiful trees and flowers, streams and ponds, a cliff and a waterfall. B ...more
THE BUTTERFLY GARDEN by Dot Hutchison is a compelling read that deals with rape, captivity but an overall tale of strength and survival…in the hands of an EVIL man known as the Gardener.
The imagery is vivid and enables you to sense the atmosphere of the beautiful garden and butterflies. But the Gardener is evil and takes teenage girls, until they reach the ripe age of twenty-one when he can preserve them …if they last that long!
The Gardener tattoo's Different butterfly wings on their back and ...more
I feel confident stating that this book will not be for everyone; I even feel fairly confident that this book won’t be for most people. It is dark, graphic, twisted, and touches on almost every taboo subject I can think of. Not since I read Karin Slaughter’s Pretty Girls last year has a book disturbed me so completely.So why in the world would anyone want to read this book might you ask? This was the most uniquely crafted story I think I have ever read. Honestly, if I had based my review on the ...more
"Where are we?"
This book fucked me up. Take a look at me anytime while I was reading The Butterfly Garden and you'd find me like this: with a hand over my gaping mouth, eyes bugging out, and a greenish tint to my face. I'm still here like, what the shit did I just read?
Well let me tell you what I just read. A dark, twisted story about girls savaged by a delusional captor who *trigger warning* stamps, rapes, and then kills them (not spoilers). It's sad, it's sickening, and it's ut ...more
