Book Review

I haven't done a book review in a long time. I guess I haven't read any books good enough to review.

I have decided to review the new J.K. Rowling book that she wrote under the psedenym of Robert Galbraith. I felt that I should give her another chance since I didn't much care for her last one (here).

This book is:

I must say that I really like this book. There were lots of twists and turns. This was far better than her last one. She provided great characters, a engaging plot, and excellent writing. I was disappointed about half way through the book because I thought I had figured out the killer. To my surprise, I was way off which I am actually thankful for. My one and only complaint with this book is that the first 100 pages are slow. I was excited for this book, so I worked through it. This book is worth your time and money.

SPOILERS:  The basics of this is that a woman has committed suicide, or did she? She is dead and her brother has decided to hire a private investigator because he thinks she was murdered. Enter Strike, he was fantastic. I really like this character. I love how smart and sneaky he was. There are so many twists and turns that this book kept me guessing the entire time. Was it the boyfriend, the uncle, the BFF, the psycho friend, or someone else? And how many people are going to die while Strike tracks down the killer?

I give this book 4 Stars for excellent story and writing!!

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

  1. I've really wanted to read this book but sadly didn't have high hopes after I read reviews of her first adult novel. Glad to know it's worth it!

  2. I might have to check this one out. I LOVE J.K and am in dire need of a new read. Especially with fall here! Nothing like cuddling up with some starbucks and a good book:)
