James Patterson – Truth or Die

As promised here’s my latest book review. I must admit this is probably a bit biased as Patterson is one of my favourite authors but noone ever claimed that reviews were objective pieces.

Truth or DieTruth or Die by James Patterson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If I had to describe Truth or Die with one word it would be addictive. It took me less than half a day to read it cover to cover. Those familiar with Patterson know he’s famous for his head spinning twists and Truth or Die is no exception. Patterson’s character development is intriguing and readers will find the plot simultaneously engaging and confounding. You’ll form an emotional connection with protagonist Trevor Mann before you even finish the prologue and Patterson draws you into his narrative. A must read for crime/thriller lovers.

Jeffery Deaver – The Broken Window

Hey all, I wrote this review of Jeffery Deaver’s ‘The Broken Window’ in August last year. It’s the only one I’ve got up at the moment but I’ve been considering writing more about other books I’ve read and those that I’ll read in the future as I figured they might be an interesting aspect to incorporate into this blog.¬†Watch¬†this space for more book reviews in the (hopefully) near future.

The Broken Window (Lincoln Rhyme, #8)The Broken Window by Jeffery Deaver

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jeffery Deaver’s The Broken Window is not your standard ‘Big Brother is always watching’ narrative. The plot follows an investigation fronted by Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs as they try to catch a man who is described by one character as ‘God’. Whilst this book touches on the notion of the government watching civilians (a topic of discussion which is becoming evermore prominent in today’s society both in narratives and reality) the focus is mainly on a private company which is shrouded in secrecy and run by a man who is portrayed as a modern day Hitler. The crime thriller raises many issues which can be assimilated with real life and although the novel is about a murder investigation there is something for everyone with author Deaver being hailed by the Daily Telegraph as “the most creative, skilled and intriguing thriller writer in the world.” The Broken Window is the kind of book you sit down with at 9pm for a bit of light reading before bed only to look up and discover it’s 3am. Highly recommended.
