Major thanks to Ela and our other buddy readers because I would have never made it through the story without the group support.

For more than a year now I've been making little pictures for my reviews, and this is the first time it doesn't feel right , especially if using a butterfly.
Thinking about letting my mind wander around that particular insect makes me sick, if I'm completely honest. I'd rather not express my thoughts that way because it would feel a little like corrupting myself. Those who read The Butterfly Garden know. The only art I can think of is a huge, covering splash of black paint, for some reason.

I'm sure psychologists would have things to say about that , but then, I am not one of those.

The Butterfly Garden is not the kind of novels where Stockholm syndrome is praised and called love. It seems baffling to me that I have to point that, but we can't ignore the ridiculous amount of these love stories now can we? Do not fear, The Butterfly Garden is definitely not a love story and again, a statement whose need baffles me, given the subject handled. Although I would be lying if I told you that it was an easy journey to take, I don't regret exploring this twisted and gruesome story one second.
Perhaps it's the complex and true-to-life characterization. Perhaps it's the never-ending suspense. Perhaps it's the compelling writing, part poetic and part trivial. Really, though? Despite the complaints I could have considering the believability, it's how deeply it affected me, because in this news-saturated world, I believe that we need books that don't let us indifferent.

Once or twice a year, if I am lucky, a get to read a book that really touches some inner part of me. The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison is such a book. Now I want to read every word she has ever written, and every word she is going to write in the future.
Once I started reading, I could not put it down. Despite the beautiful title, the subject matter is quite dark, horrific in places. And yet Hutchison writes with an ironi Once or twice a year, if I am lucky, a get to read a book that really touches some inner part of me. And yet Hutchison writes with an ironic humour that had me smiling and even laughing out loud.

The story is told from an interesting perspective. The garden, where young women are held and tattooed to resemble butterflies, has already been discovered when we start this journey, and the survivors are all hospitalised except for one, Maya.
Their questions and her answers take her back over her time there. The Butterfly Garden is an outstanding read and is currently at the top of my ten best reads of the year.

But my wings couldn't move and I couldn't fly, and I couldn't even cry. All that was left to me was the terror and the agony and the sorrow. This story is about an evil man only known as the Gardener.
He This book was my kindle first May pick and it's very disturbing. He has a beautiful garden with a water fall and creek and flowers and butterflies. But he also has other butterflies and they are HIS girls.
The girls he takes, preferably at the age of sixteen so he can keep them until their twenty-first birthday when he can preserve them FOREVER. At least for the girls that live that long. He tattoo's intricate butterfly wings on their back and has them wear dresses without the back so he can always see the wings.

He is a very different kind of captor, he rapes them and treats them all kindly until he preserves them. That is the reason I gave it 5 stars. This is a book unlike any I have ever read. I have to be careful at reading books about rape. I usually skim over parts if they are too much.
