2.5*

After walking in from school to find her mothers lifeless body covered in blood and then being told her father had also been butchered in their family home, seven year old Natalie’s life is set on a new course. She grows up with an interest in forensic science, not consciously with the aim of solving her parents still open murder, but more so she could help other victims and their families by getting answers. Natalie’s natural skills were noticed by her professors and she was given the oppor

I have never been angrier at an editor and publisher for letting down an author as I was before, during and after reading ARM FARM by Sarah Butland. I was leery before reading it because, let’s face it, we do judge books by their covers and this one looked like a pre-teen had drawn it. I was irritated while reading because I found myself repeatedly rolling my eyes at the convoluted and outlandish situations, the inane dialogue and the extraneous or repetitive information. Example: The main chara ...more

Sarah Butland’s Arm Farm starts wonderfully with a young woman walking into a field of… arms. The touches of horror blend perfectly with reality as she contemplates why she’s there—a perfectly natural explanation—and the chapter’s intriguing, disturbing and fascinating all at once.

The story becomes a little more mundane as the top-of-her-class college student proceeds to get thoroughly drunk while celebrating success with her teacher. Characters make important decisions with surprising ease, bel

I was asked to read and review “Arm farm”. With a title like that, I was intrigued. I really liked that the story was about a CSI college student. Usually the forensic/murder mystery books I read involve older, more experienced characters. I enjoy the TV shows based on the subject so it’s interesting to read about. I really enjoyed the CSI convention plot. It brought a fun aspect to the profession. The storyline was something I’d never read before and it kept me guessing who Natalie’s stalker wa ...more

The concept of a young woman who decides to go into forensics to find the killer of her parents was excellent. I didn't understand the character's actions or reasoning at times and I found the ending quite abrupt. But this was an acceptably decent first attempt at writing a mystery novel. In my personal opinion, a professional content editor could have made this an exceptional story.

Not for me, sorry.
Really loved the opening chapter. Thought the Arm Farm imagery was great. The book, though, needed a really good critique. Seemingly unimprtant details (like how people had their coffee, etc) got a lot of page-time. Maybe it *is* important, and I'm missing something, but... Unfortunately, this time, it just isn't for me.
