Despite low ratings on goodreads I like the book. On the cover of slovenian edition it is said it's sexually charged thriller with a lot of unexpectecd twists. For me it was a fast, light read and only the last two chapters or so felt like I was really reading a thriller.

Finally a Joy Fielding novel that didn't disappoint me in the end! I tend to love her stories up until the last couple chapters but this one held solid to the end. Great story, full of twists and surprises!

I’ve read Joy Fielding in the past and liked her…but The Wild Zone was completely different from her other books. It is less thriller and more character study. Not that this was too heavy for vacation…it was just unexpected. I don’t expect all thrillers to get into the psychological aspects of their characters… especially with authors not known for those deeper character developments. When I read the other Fielding books (Missing Pieces and Charley’s Web) they were solid thrillers, but not anything too intense or emotional. The Wild Zone caught me off-guard with its slow-paced storyline, not to mention its surprise twist ending. For Fielding die-hards, be prepared for an unusual novel. For those unfamiliar with this author and with thrillers in general, this might be a good book to try and get your toes wet with another genre.
