it was ok
bookshelves: 2016, audio

I thought that this book was a thriller inside another narrative. And for the first few chapters of the book within the book there is a thrill. But then it dissolves into a police procedural and ends in complete lunacy. But what's worse is the narrative wrapped around the so-called thriller is really quite awful. When was the last time you used the word "lest" in "lest we forget something or other"? Well, it's used here - a lot. The writing is so awkward and heavy handed that I started counting the lests. I got to 7 but maybe I missed some. They came in groups.

This book is being turned into a movie from Tom Ford. He can probably make something or it as long as the word "lest" is not in the script. For once I'd say you could skip the book and go straight to film.

Jamie Just saw a post about the movie adaptation and thought I'd give the book a try, lest it be good, but thankfully I checked GR first!
