We Are All Completely Fine by Daryl Gregory

We Are All Completely Fine by Daryl Gregory
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Harrison is the Monster Detective, a storybook hero. Now he’s in his mid-thirties and spends most of his time not sleeping.

Stan became a minor celebrity after being partially eaten by cannibals. Barbara is haunted by the messages carved upon her bones. Greta may or may not be a mass-murdering arsonist. And for some reason, Martin never takes off his sunglasses.

Unsurprisingly, no one believes their horrific tales until they are sought out by psychotherapist Dr. Jan Sayer. What happens when these likely-insane outcasts join a support group? Together they must discover which monsters they face are within and which are lurking in plain sight.


A group of people comes together for group therapy. They are survivors of horrendous events and together with psychotherapist Dr. Jan they talk about what they have been through. But what is really the purpose of the group? Are they just there to talk, or are gathered for a special purpose?

The book was interesting from the beginning. I liked all the characters and I liked that every one of them was part of a puzzle, even Dr. Jan (I managed to guess correctly to who she really was!). It was a great book and I would very much love to read a continuation to this one.

I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review!
