4.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to get into but worth the time, 28 Mar. 2010
This review is from: End of the World in Breslau (Hardcover)
One of the things that you can say about the influx of foreign author crime writers is that they're not afraid to break out of the box in terms of style or plot and that's exactly what you get with this offering from Marek Krajowksi. Whilst this is generally a good thing, it does make the writing style of this piece a bit more difficult to grasp and does detract the reader from the overall piece until they do. Its well written, the dark humour shines through but above all else it's a title that will thrill and surprise you. Add to the mix an unusual cover design and it's a title that will step out and shout at you from across the bookstore. Quercus certain know talent when they see it and its great that they take the time to bring them to a new audience who can sit back and relax with something new. Other than this, the only this I really should warn you about is that this is the second novel released in this series, whilst I didn't read the original I did feel that it would have greatly improved my reading experience had I been used to the writing style prior to beginning this piece.
