What Should Be Wild Reviews

  • Hannah Greendale

    They grew me inside of my mother, which was unusual, because she was dead.


    There's a lot to love about Fine's debut novel, a book that blends magical realism with lore. The opening chapters are among its most dazzling: a child with a peculiar, dare I say it magical talent; a foreboding, two-hundred year old house; and a tangled wood with a secret that spans generations.

    Unfortunately, the narrative is weakened by the introduction of a secondary character whose presence disrupts an otherwise mar ...more

    Cursed. Maisie Cothay has never known the feel of human flesh: born with the power to kill or resurrect at her slightest touch, she has spent her childhood sequestered in her family’s manor at the edge of a mysterious forest. Maisie’s father, an anthropologist who sees her as more experiment than daughter, has warned Maisie not to venture into the wood. Locals talk of men disappearing within, emerging with addled minds and strange stories. What he does not tell Maisie is that for over a millenni ...more

    3.5 Stars.

    What a delicious and dark fairy tale/magical realism/fantasy - I'm unsure how to actually categorize this one! Very unique and probably won't be for every reader because of how different it is. The main storyline is Maisie, her unique ability to bring things to life or to kill them with her very touch, and her quest to find her father, Peter, when he disappears - seemingly to go looking for her.

    And then we get my favorite parts - the darker side. Where the women in the forest, who span

    What Should Be Wild is the book I've been waiting for, maybe since I was a little girl. What Should Be Wild is a promise, a warning, a breath of fresh air, frankly. Julia Fine, in her debut (!!!), deftly draws on fairy tales, seeks out their darkest roots, to craft a feminist story that carefully, almost cautiously, explores the ways in which women have been subjugated time and time again, but she seeks out the chinks of light, the ways in which women have attempted to subvert their forced obeis ...more

    Born with a curse that many women in her family have: Maisie Cothay cannot touch or be touched, for she holds the power of life and death in her hands. Without a mother, her anthropologist father has died and been reborn multiple times before she had control of her power, as he carefully watches, documents and contains her in the large manor house at the edge of the forest. Now sixteen, Maisie has questions – lots of questions, many centered around the forest that must never be entered, where he ...more

  • Jerrie (redwritinghood)

    The concept for this book was really interesting, but I felt the author didn’t do enough with it. Maisie can kill or reanimate with a touch due to a very old family curse. The story builds on dark fairy tales and feminist themes, but it is hard to connect with the characters.

  • Shelley

    What Should Be Wild was a captivating read from beginning to end. As soon as I read the synopsis for this book, my interest was piqued. If I may be perfectly honest, the stunning cover was what first caught my eye. Gorgeous, and so fitting for this dark tale.

    It’s difficult to imagine a life in which you can’t truly experience touch – such a basic human interaction that we crave from the moment we take our first breath. Maisie Cothay was not your basic, average girl. Her slightest touch could snu

    Since the Time Traveler's Wife is one of my favorite books I was excited to read anything Audrey Niffenegger strongly endorsed. Overall, really a wonderful read.

    The basic premise is that a girl, Maisie, is born with the ability/curse to kill or being back to life anything she touches. The book made me reconsider my perspective on physicality in a new way. After her dad disappears, Maisie is forced to leave her safe hideaway. During her explorations of this well-built world, we are introduced to
