5.0 out of 5 stars Sunstroke by Jesse Kellerman 21 July 2009
This is the second book by Jesse Kellerman that I have read and I was not disappointed. The plot with its unexpected twists and turns kept me gripped from start to finish. I read it while on holiday and found it the perfect choice; entertaining but also well researched and well written, with an unusual vein of humour running through what was also a thriller. What a combination!

2.0 out of 5 stars Keep Practising Jesse 9 July 2007
By Mary D
Children of the famous always complain how hard it is to be accepted when they attempt the same career path as their parents. This novel is a great example of a book that would possibly not have been published at all - at least not in its current form - if it wasn't for his famous name. While it's clear that Kellerman junior can write and has some sharp observations to make, reading this book is a bit like ploughing through treacle. I just wished that someone had the courage to tell him to cut out a hundred pages - mostly the neverending stilted conversations that went nowhere - and to get a far firmer grip on his plotting. By the last quarter of the book I really didn't care who was who and who did what to whom - or why - but I carried on in the hope of a final reprieve. There was none. Self indulgent, dull and ultimately totally unbelievable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sunstroke 18 Sep 2007
By Jean
This is one of the worst books I have ever ploughed through. I read whatever i find by both Jonathan and Faye Kellerman, and had high expectations after reading a review of this book. I felt really let down. The plot meandered, and the author seemed to relish using some words to the detriment of the desired image. All in all I thought the plot was poor and the writing in need of a great deal of improvement. I won't read another one by him!

1.0 out of 5 stars Drivel 27 Feb 2014
By Spinoza
Give it a miss. Definitely not worth reading. Stick to books from his father. Egotistical children should not be allowed to write.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT a brutal art 9 Dec 2012
This is remarkable...for all the wrong reasons. How JK could move from this utter drivel to the skill and pace of The Brutal Art is incredible. The writing is peppered with inconsequential flash backs and detail of characters and settings which bear no relation to and have no impact on the plot...but then, ah the plot. Secretary's boss dies. That's pretty much it. Nothing else happens, but JK spreads this lack of invention over 400+ pages, the last 100 or so of which are truly incomprehensible. Why at 300+ pages in do we learn about Gloria's brothers acting debut in The Importance of Being Earnest"??? At time he writes like a primary school pupil, thesaurus at hand for a more interesting word, which proves the point that less is so more. I should have been warned off by the tag line, writ large on the cover "Who can you trust?". WHOM for goodness sake. I read and loved The Brutal Art and was prepared to give this first stab a go, but I should have taken other 2 and 1 star reviews more seriously. This is terrible. Had it not been by the Kellerman infant, there is no way a publisher would not have thrown it back saying, what is this supposed to be? It most definitely is not a thriller. AVOID.
