“Tangerine” Review

Tangerine

Tangerine by Christine Mangan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Obsession and patience are required to fall down the rabbit hole that is Tangerine. Where I wanted Lucy to get her comeuppance, instead, a mélange of the Twilight Zone proves Lucy’s ferver and needs will eclipse even her own expectations. The author delivers a juicy yet bitter fruit in Tangerine; you become entangled in the minds of Lucy and Alice, and begin to wonder where one begins and the other ends. I wanted the story to end differently, but I suppose, then again, so did each of the characters. The winding path that their lives took was hard to put down once I began to read in between the lines, and by then, I became just as lost as they each did: Thinking I knew where I was going, when all along, something was dragging me along, an itch, a knocking at the door.

Mangan’s writing is exceptional and relatable. I look forward to more from this author.
