I don’t usually review non-fiction (largely because I don’t read enough of it to really appreciate it) but after finishing ‘How Not to Write a Screenplay’ I felt it was about time for my first non-fiction review.
I bought this book during an Amazon deal a couple of months back. From the description of the novel it sounded right up my street, a twisted killer and the winding hunt to catch him.
I bought ‘Sometimes I Lie’ in my last major book haul, when Amazon had a 3 paperbacks for £10 offer on. It was the first of the 9 books purchased in that deal that I bought.
As usual I was fairly apprehensive as I’d never heard of Alice Feeney before and with her debut novel being included in a discount deal, and all the reviews featured on the cover being from other lesser known authors, I worried it’d be a cheap, tacky thriller.
My god was I wrong.
From the moment I read the prologue I had high hopes for Candlish’s novel. And to extent those expectations were met… although, not quite in the way I imagined.
This was a gift from my boyfriend this Valentine’s day and I have spent every spare moment I have had since devouring it’s pages.
This collection of short stories was a Christmas gift from an uncle of mine and because I’m a sucker for order and have to make y way alphabetically through my book collection, it was the first thing I started reading once I’d finished Dan Brown’s Inferno in January.
With a title like ‘Inferno’ you would expect Dan Brown’s most recent novel to set your world alight once you start reading. The big question is, did it?
